Greetings! Having been born and raised in the St. Louis area, I have first hand experience with "growing up, living, working, and raising a family" in this wonderful part of the country! I love my hometowns of Millstadt and Columbia and all the surrounding areas for their social, economic, spiritual, and educational opportunities. No matter what you are looking for - we have it!! Hiking, wineries, spiritual development at Our Lady Of The Snows Shrine, down-home restaurants, ethnic food, trendy restaurants and bars to see and be seen, family recreation, biking and jogging trails, boating, hunting, fishing, fabulous parks...I could go on all day!! We are so fortunate to have such a wealth of options for home buyers from small towns to college towns to farms to downtown loft living and everything in between. There are few areas in the country where I have seen this level of diverse living options, and all so close to St. Louis - home of the world famous Arch, our beloved Cardinals, reknowned St. Louis Zoo, Missouri Botanical Garden, The Magic House, The Hill, Grants Farm, Purina Farms, and Forest Park...just to name a few of the wonderful things about our big city to the West. So it's obvious I love this area...I would love the opportunity to assist you with your next real estate transaction in Illinois or Missouri.
