6 Steps to Buying Your Next Home
Consider this the first date! This meeting is about getting to know you and what you are looking for in your next home. We will go over items like your ‘must haves’, areas /neighborhoods of interest, and get a clear image
of what you need and want in a home. We also want you to get to know us and our team, and make sure that you feel comfortable with the process and the agent that will be helping you!
It’s never been more important to be prepared as you begin the home buying process, especially in this competitive market. We can help you get prequalified and identify next steps to put you in the best position to
succeed when we find the right home.
This is the fun part! We will be notifying you when new listings come up that meet your search criteria, and will work to get you in to view the homes that interest you as quickly as possible. Let the search begin!
When you find the home you love, your agent will work with you to help you determine the right price and terms to ensure you the best chance of getting your offer accepted.
When an offer has been accepted, we will be there to help you navigate the entire process from inspections to appraisal, all the way up until closing. Our goal is to provide an exceptional experience throughout
the entire process.
Time to grab the keys, throw a party, and start making memories!
Our relationship doesn’t end there, our goal is to create lifelong customers and be a resource to you for years to come. Thank you for entrusting us with one of life’s biggest investments!

Cassie, Courtney, and Kearstin were absolutely phenomenal to work with. Helping us navigate through our first home buying experience was crucial due to some hiccups, but they explained every
process in detail of what to expect. The timeline was spot on and they were always responsive to our questions immediately. I cannot recommend them enough!

Words can not express how deeply grateful we are for this company. Shaylea, Courtney and Katie were so helpful to us no matter what time of day or night on finding our dream house and helping us navigate through all the paperwork and ins and outs . They were kind, professional and courteous and went up and beyond any other company I have ever worked with. In my opinion they are the best real estate group in Missouri and if you want someone that really works for you and puts your needs first, this is the group to go with.

Shaylea Brown was amazing! She was very helpful, accomodating and patient with us, as we searched for the “perfect” home from April 2019 to finally making an offer on February 2020 and eventually closing on 3/20/20. She went above and beyond for us, addressing our concerns with immediate action and responsiveness , answering our questions honestly, even if it was just random inquiries when we would shoot her a text or call late in the night. Her assistant Courtney was very helpful as well!
