Bill Ward recommends Paula Andrew

Sales Engineer

I could not have been more pleased with Paula selling our home! She staged the house to sell quickly and found a suitable buyer. She also helped resolve a few issues with a neighbor claiming ownership of a small piece of our property that we had been maintaining for over 20 years! All said, Paula was wonderful!

Connie Coulter Ward recommends Paula Andrew

Executive Director, The Wednesday Club of St. Louis

Paula was a blessing to us through our whole process. She gave us wonderful advice, and was always honest in her opinions. In selling our house, we did exactly as she suggested resulting in a successful sale.

When our neighbor was not helpful in an easement problem, Paula pulled out all the "stops" to manage a positive result which allowed us to close in a timely manner.

Paula listened to us about finding a transitional home after having sold our home of 28 years. She found the perfect rental home with exactly what we wanted and guided us through those "waters" as well.

Paula deserves the highest of recommendations from me. Frankly, I do not know what I would have done without her. Her integrity and calm resolve made a very stressful situation manageable.

Margaret Lyons recommends Paula Andrew


Paula was there guiding us through the whole process of buying and selling our houses. She had recommendations for stagers, inspectors, movers and anything else we needed. She held many open houses even in a slow market which proved to be productive.

Cathie G recommends Ann Espenschied

I felt that I was given the opportunity to work with a professional, knowledgeable agent when I retained Ann to sell my home. Ann’s attention to detail and extensive knowledge of the market allowed for a positive outcome. She is an effective negotiator with a winning attitude that makes her a true asset in the real estate market.
I also made the decision to utilize Ann as my buyer’s agent. She looked extensively in my desired area to locate the property that she felt would meet my needs and the needs of my family. Ann’s relentless negotiation skills afforded me the best possible deal in an area that I felt was out of my reach. I am so thankful for her guidance, knowledge, drive, and enthusiasm.
As a result of my positive experiences, several family members have also taken advantage of Ann’s expertise for their real estate transactions. They also felt that Ann provided exceptional service and is truly dedicated to her clients.

Mike & Amy recommends Paula Andrew

We cannot thank you enough for all you've done for us! I know we are picky and the process of finding "the perfect first home" was often painful. Thanks for sticking with us until we found it!

Janet recommends Paula Andrew

This is just a note of deepest thanks for all you did for my parents on the sale of the house. You went far beyond duty in the way you kept in touch with all three of us and solved the many repair issues that kept cropping up to move the property in record time. We really appreciate all your warmth and efficiency- Warmly Janet

Paul & Teresa J recommends Wendy Hermann

Professional, Personable, and Plugged-in ... Wendy never tired and always gave full attention to our detailed questions. We probably reviewed 200+ homes and visited 50+. Her customer phone calls get the highest priority and she adjusted to our house hunting timeline. In the end we landed in a superb situation and looking back we can see clearly that Wendy helped us avoid a few homes that would not have fit what we were looking for or needed. There is no doubt that Wendy is in the top-tier of St Louis brokers and we'll be calling her if we sell. Remember: top tier means extremely capable and service focused instead of sales focused

John & Julie W recommends Wendy Hermann

Wendy is a great Realtor. She was informative and always available throughout the process of buying our new home in St. Louis. She was also great at working with us through several setbacks with the sale of our home in Ohio and the demands of our lender in St. Louis. I would definitely recommend Wendy to everyone

Susan & Brendan H recommends Wendy Hermann

Wendy was an excellent. She spent so much time with us in our first home buying process, from phone calls explaining the process and finding out our wants to Saturday mornings looking at houses and giving her honest opinion about what we were seeing. Not to mention, we were out of town for the whole process. Wendy worked patiently with our schedule. We look forward to working with her again in the future.

Darren & Melissa S recommends Wendy Hermann

Perfect, professional experience on both our buying and selling experience with Wendy.
Upon learning we'd be transferred to the St Louis area, Wendy was referred to us as an exceptional realtor. We scheduled a compressed house hunting trip 2 months prior to our move date and she accommodated our need to have a lot of houses lined up for viewing and gave all the time we needed. Additionally, her knowledge of the area was helpful in deciding on focus neighborhoods and school districts.
We were so impressed with her during the buying process, that we went right back to her as we prepared to move again 4 years later. We consulted with her during the pre-sale period on home improvement investments and staging, and were again impressed with the compressive sales approach; photos, open houses, pricing, etc.
You'll find none better than Wendy, and after the buy or sale, you'll have a great resource who you'll be proud to call your friend for life.

Henry & Stephanie L recommends Wendy Hermann

My wife and I had a wonderful experience with Wendy as our realtor. She helped us find a home that truly matched what we were looking for and was available whenever we needed her We felt she went above and beyond especially as we were figuring things out from out of town and also guided us through the process with her knowledge of the area. She even Facetimed us and walked through the house we ended up with as we couldn't make it there in person! She really made the process of finding a home from out of town as stress free as possible. My wife and I couldn't be any happier!

Kathryn Fondell recommends Paula Andrew

We have purchased and sold 3 homes with Paula. She is the best!

You couldn't ask for a more professional, service-oriented agent. She walks you through stressful situations.

Paula knows all the little hidden neighborhoods and gems that you might not find.

She keeps you updated and informed at all times.

You never have to worry about anything getting missed.

Paula seems to just pull a rabbit out of her hat. She is that good.

The best agent you'll find. I have recommended her to many a person.

Paula has quite a fan club. We would follow her wherever she went.

Wendy was a pleasure to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable with not only the local real estate market but also knows the nuts and bolts of the homes themselves. She was extremely efficient, quick to respond, and always friendly. Overall a wonderful experience for my first time buying a home!

mark schlafly recommends Ann Espenschied

Ann knows this business.

Ann is the best. She was on top of everything. Couldn't have done it without her.

Laid back, super friendly, and reduces the drama that can sometimes come from real estate transactions.

I recommend Ann all of the time to people. We have sold a lot of properties and she is the best.

patrick dippel recommends Wendy Hermann

We used Wendy to purchase our home 4 years ago and it also was a great experience. Several times over our 4 years there were possibilities of moving and Wendy was there with answers and guidance. We have moved 6 times all over North America and I can very easily rank Wendy as the top agent we have ever worked with. Best of luck and I will continue to funnel referrals to her as we have a large network in the St. Louis area.
