Ann’s professionalism and integrity was on display from start to finish. I would have no reservations recommending Ann to my friends and family or using her myself again. When Ann wasn’t available, Terri stepped in to pinch hit and was also very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Great team!

Being new to the area, having an agent who could help us get to know the city was important. Throughout the process Ann was very knowledgeable, patient and attentive to our needs. She was willing to help out with research and information to help us make the best decision for us. I highly recommend Ann as a very professional and knowledgeable real estate agent, plus she’s fun to work with!!

- David Matteson, Texas

Jason did excellent job with everything we asked great experience for first time buying house

- Daniel Kreienheder

Mary was very helpful and understanding of our problems with our previous Berkshire Agent and worked to avoid those problems moving forward. Very responsive to our needs and questions.

- Lloyd Dohrmann, Chesterfield, MO

Jeremy was very on top of things and prompt when communicating which is important in this process. I would definitely recommend Jeremy because of his attention to detail and ease of communication. Overall Jeremy made the process go very smoothly.

- Ed, St. Louis

Awesome person. He knows his stuff and knows how to get it done.

- Michael Winkler

We got Mike and Denny team by referal of another BHHS agent who was not available. Glad we matched with Mike and the Denny team!

We had a great experience. Mike took the time to show us several properties of our choosing without hesitation and provided great education as first time home buyers. Mike was ever available via text/phone/e-mail.

- M & M

Denise understood what we were looking for in a home. Not just the physical aspects, number of rooms, location and price, but where we would feel at home. She also was very thorough when explaining the process of putting in our offer as well as making sure we were a part of the process of the inspection. When she was uncomfortable with an area of the home (even though the inspector didn’t red flag it) she asked questions of those with more experience and discussed it with my husband and I. The item was looked at again and a previous undisclosed issue came to light. In the end it all worked out fine.

We greatly appreciated Denise’s leadership in our home purchase!

- Michael & Cynthia Thompson 343 Aspen Creek Drive, 63385

Thank you Chris for three wonderful real estate buying and selling experiences! Your passion and knowledge far exceeded our expectations and we were very fortunate to deal with such an amazing agent. You are an excellent agent and your patience and attention to detail and what we were needing helped to bring us to the perfect home for us! And while we were sad to say goodbye to our old homes, we adore our new home and we only found it because of you! You clearly knew what you were doing, as all the homes we picked ended up not working out, but the one you told us we just *had* to see, ended up being the perfect place for us. Thank you for everything!

- Nichole Lipner, Maryland Heights, MO

Bill Shea is great to work with. I have bought several homes and he made the process easier than ever. I completely trust his ability and his advice. I will for sure ask him to help me buy or sell in the future. I would recommend Bill to other family and friends without hesitation.

- Sarah Gustafson, Kirkwood MO

Sally represented us in our Kirkwood condo purchase (July - Sept 2017) and did and exceptional job! So we decided to offer her our Chesterfield home sale where she continued her exceptional service for us at a great commission! She is as good as it gets in her totally thorough customer service. LOVED the way she put counter signs in many of our rooms pointing out many key features our home offered! Highly recommend Sally to anyone!!!!

We have made numerous house/condo purchases and sales over the years with several good agents. Sally is by far the best agent we've ever dealt with!

Ann has helped my parents buy and sell multiple properties and they have always raved about her. It was a no brainer to work with her when I began my search and she was absolutely amazing to work with! Knowledgeable, always reachable, and very reliable.

Nancy's name was mentioned to,us by several people we know. All,have worked with her and had a great experience so we called and asked Nancy to work,with us.

She showed us several areas and homes to help us make an informed decision. She was a true pleasure to work with on our transition to the St Louis area.

I would,highly recommend working with Nancy!

- J Milnes, St Louis

Pat is an outstanding agent. Two showings and one open house. Our home was sold in five days for about ten thousand more than another agency’s agent wanted to list it for. Pat takes his time and does it right. He is honest with you and works literally 24/7 for you and all his clients. We were and are pleased.

- The Schacks, Farmington

Lisa was always early for our appointments which for me punctuality is huge. She even offered to bring my daughter a milk shake! A awesome person and a pleasure to work with and help find my families home.

- Josh smith st peters

Nancy Gorgen helped make our home buying experience fun and easy. She was very knowledgeable about the St. Louis real estate market. Her follow up and attention to detail was excellent. But, most of all, working with Nancy was like working with a trusted friend or family member. We knew that she understood what was important to us, and she went out of her way to help us find the right home.

- Wayne & Melissa Roberts

Pat Tosie was always VERY accessible to us. He showed us dozens of houses and was patient with us beyond measure. He was critical in finding our new home and in selling our old home. I recommended him to my brother and he (Pat) sold his home also.

- Jim Schack

Jason was great. He is friendly and knowledgeable. He gives good advice and will deal with craziness before and afterwards.

- Matthew Sicking Fentob

Art was a pleasure to work with and I would personally recommend any future homeowner to seek his advice. I am a first time home buyer, so at first this whole process seemed a bit overwhelming. When I first met Art he made me feel at ease with his knowledge and stress free approach. He was in constant communication with me, and was always quick to respond to any question I had via email, text or phone call.

- Christopher Moehlenbrock 8821 Wrenwood Lane. Brentwood, MO 63144

I would recommend Diane and her team to anyone. They are top notch and professional

- Mark Mills, Rothmark Homes

Jason was outstanding from the moment he walked through our home in preparation of placing our house on the market, calming our anxiety through inspections, to the final sale of our house! He is understanding, extremely down to earth, thus we found it very easy to work with Jason! He even grabbed his lawnmower out of the kindness of his heart to mow down some weeds in the front yard after we moved to our new home in another state!

- Eric, Connie and Andrew, from Missouri to South Carolina

Trupti is an amazing agent!

Sally Harris is 'as good as it gets' in brokerage service!!!!

- Steve and Debbie Mullen, Kirkwood Mo

We have seen Diane on listings, open houses, etc. in our area for many years but had always stayed loyal to our previous agent. Since that agent is essentially part time now, we decided to finally contact Diane. As it turns out that was a very good decision. She is likeable, courteous, professional, and oh yeah - she knows how to sell houses!

We wouldn't hesitate to call on Diane again and/or to give her the highest recommendation to our friends and family.

- Keith Snyder, Wildwood

Sold our house the first day on the market!

- Halie Rowland

Mike Anderson set up Open House each weekend until my home sold. Most realtors would not.

Once I met Casey at an open house, I knew right away she would be the one I worked with.

Casey listened to what I was interested in. She got to know me and my family. Every interaction with her was outstanding.

She quickly and thoroughly answered all my questions. She was always energetic and was genuinely excited for me.

Superior service. Not one single hiccup in the process. I love bragging about the excellent care Casey gave me whenever someone mentioned they have with their purchase/closing.

There was one matter we requested the seller to repair. When Casey saw this was not completed the night before closing, she personally got it done. She went above and beyond. I actually miss interacting with her each day!

- Cynthia Victory, St Louis

Call Sally if you are buying or selling your home. She is a professional who will get it done.

Everything went very smoothly thanks to Jeremy's expertise.

- Rich and Shiela Johnson, Williamsburg, Va.

Sally was a great resource in helping me find the perfect house. She listened to what I said, and as my needs and wants modified she correspondingly modified the types of properties she showed me. When I found a house I liked, she discovered it was a competitive situation and she knew exactly what I needed to do to get the house. I would highly recommend Sally to anyone looking to buy in the Kirkwood/Webster area.

- Cathy Converse, Kirkwood

Jane did a great job in listing and negotiating the sale of our home. Thanks for making this so easy.

- Toni Wright Wildwood,MO

Terri is an excellent agent and made the sale of my house smooth and painless. She thoroughly explained the entire process and always made herself available, any time of day or night.

I would definitely recommend her to friends and family in the future.

- Lauren De Vuono, Saint Louis, MO

Diane and her team are THE BEST!


I had a very small area that I was looking in, and my expectations of my house were high. My agent, Terri Lessaris, was very patient as she showed me house after house. She was able to schedule showings quickly, and she was able to work around my crazy work schedule.

When I finally found something that I wanted, she was able to help me get my dream home at a great price. She was very aggressive with her negotiations (all of the negotiations took less than 12 hours). She was great about explaining each step of the process to me as well. I could ask her anything, and she would take time to explain it to me.

I would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.

- Jennifer Ritter, Manchester, MO

Diane Denny was amazing to work with. She is very knowledgeable and has what seems like an unlimited amount of resources. Diane used every avenue to market my house to and an excellent team of people around her. I worked closely with Angie Kahle during the selling process and was amazed at how hard everyone works. Emails, texts, phone calls were always answered in a very timely fashion (even in the evenings and on weekends). If anyone is out for the day, there's another amazing team member to respond to you. Everyone on the team knows the specifics of your listing. I had a great experience with Diane and her team and highly recommend them!!

- Chris Norris / Arnold, MO

Diane is superior to all other agents I have worked with in the past. She has a tenasty unmatched by anyone. Her attention to detail is amazing and the internal processes she has established at Berkshire Hathaway ensures quick responses.

While looking at a property we were considering, Diane really pushed us to open up our search area and consider similar properties- which she obtained appointments for us to review. Without her guidance and persistence we would not have found the perfect home for us!!

Diane and her team are excellent to work with, I would not hesitate to recommend them and work with them in the future.

- Cindy Austin Innsbrook, MO

I would strongly recommend the Adams team as listing agents for any property. Jonathan handed items the home inspector requested be fixed in a professional and knowledgeable manner. Some of the fixes requested were not warranted and Jonathan negotiated the settlement of these items. Also has a thorough knowledge of construction which is very helpful for the seller.

- Edward Thiemann, St Louis County

Diane Denny and the Denny Team were polite and on top of things during my home purchase. The entire process was smooth. Each person I had contact with was looking out for my best interest in buying my home.

It is nice to see such a cohesive group. Nothing fell through the cracks and my closing took 30 minutes.

Thank you, I am excited to move in to my new home!

- Dawn Dreppard, St. Louis, Missouri

Jeremy was extremely knowledgeable about the entire home buying process. He was readily available for all correspondence in helping me purchase a home. His handling of all details necessary to purchase required no concern on my end. His office was decisive when we made the decision to make an offer and they helped provide clarity on the amount. I could not have been happier with how my experience went working Jeremy and his office. It was extremely pleasant and Jeremy was an absolute joy to work with. I will recommend Jeremy to any acquaintances looking to sell or purchase in the future. Personally, I will definitely be working with Jeremy again in the future when the time comes.

- Jared Ater, STL

Pat made the home buying process a breeze. As a first time home buyer, I was dreading the process. But Pat was very knowledgeable of everything and was able to walk and talk me through everything. I would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home.

- Lukas Morgan

Michael was extremely helpful with my wife and I looking for our first home. We were relocating from Texas and he made the long distance search as easy as possible. He took our calls and helped us research properties, even on Friday nights! He also went to look at houses for us while we were unable to be in town.

Overall it was a great experience. Thanks Mike!

- The Jacobsons, STL, MO

Just from an initial conversation with Artit, you can tell he is an upstanding person with excellent knowledge of real estate brokerage and the St. Louis market.

Artit was courteous and expeditious in all aspects of my purchase transaction that I was handling from out of state. In dealing with the exchange of contract and closing where I had issues that could have blown up the whole deal, Artit was calm and thoughtful, and held everything together.

This was an excellent experience from start to finish for my wife and me. I strongly recommend Artit and Berkshire Hathaway to anyone buying or selling residential real estate in the St. Louis area.

- Tom, Chicago, IL

Edye has found three great houses for me and when the time came Edye was able to sell each of the homes within a day of the listing. Edye is caring and personable and is always available to help. Edye has become a close friend over the past seven years and I would strongly recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell real estate.

- Thomas Keener

Kim Anderson has all the answers.

- Robert French 3122 Upper Bottom Rd, St. Charles, MO 63088

This team works well together I would highly recommend them friends and family

- Jordan St Louis

The house was listed for a year with a St. Charles County realtor. No offers!

I decided to use Sally Harris even though her office is in St. Louis as I know she had access to all the comps and listings. She did far more to sell the house than the previous agency. I was quite pleased with her efforts.

The buyer was extremely difficult and demanding, but Sally dealt with the issues as came up.

Sally is a top notch agent. She worked hard to get my house sold.

I had little contact with other staff in the office, but all were polite when I dropped things off for Sally.

I recommend her without reservation.

- Cindy Rohrer, Town and Country

This group is a true team. Melanie was my predominant agent but I had help from all three of them. Melanie was extremely detailed oriented, and was always available via either text or phone call. She was wonderful at explaining how this worked, and what things meant, especially to someone who had no idea about the ins and outs of real estate, such as myself. I felt I could trust her to do what was in my best interest, to ensure a hassle-free closing. She had excellent reccomendations in lenders and inspectors, and was always keeping me informed of everything concerning my contract. Overall, a very wonderful experience with a very wonderful person and team!

- Erica Thompson, Fenton, MO

A friend at work referred us to Mary. She said she had the inside scoop on houses in the area and she lived up to her reputation. Mary made everything easy and quick. No stress. I would recommend her in a heartbeat

Jeremy Sides was a pleasure to work with. He returned any texts, calls very quickly and was very patient. I appreciated his attention to the sale of my house and all his help closing the deal on my new home. I will gladly recommend him to anyone who inquires about a realtor.

- Trudy, St. Louis

Jeremy was amazing! We have dealt with other realtors in Illinois and Arizona and he has been our best so far! Very patient and not pushy. Took time to look around the house to identify any issues we may have missed. Super approachable. He worked hard for us to help us find the right house and always remained positive...and kept us positive.

- Tara Dabek, Chesterfield, MO

We were very impressed with Patrick A. Tosie Sr. His response time was very good on every situation that came up. His knowledge and experience proved to satisfy our every need. We would highly recommend Pat to our friends and family.

I have used Diane and The Denny Team for 20yrs with numerous purchases/sales and have trusted them with not only myself but with several friends and family. They are professional & trustworthy and get the job done!

- Jenny

What more can we say. Pat Tosie was there with us through every step of the sale of our house. He knew the right people to send when we needed help to rectify any problems and at a reasonable cost and expediency as well as being there to supervise that help. Thank you Pat Tosie

Would recommend them and Pat Tosie to anyone we run across who is looking to sell a house.

- Phyllis and Harold Freiberger - Chesterfield MO

We relocated from NYC to STL and Nancy was referred by a family friend. Nancy found a property that was ideal for us...and much sooner than we were expecting. Nancy and team (Molly) helped us close very quickly. We are detail-oriented and have very high standards; Nancy and Molly absolutely exceeded expectations on speed, responsiveness, professionalism, and ultimately results!

- Hudson Moore, St. Louis, MO

The Adams team had excellent communication, did a thorough job researching the property and had a great marketing plan in place before we met the first time.

The Adams team was great though the entire home sale process. Even jumping through hoops to satisfy requests and fill out forms needed by the relocation specialist team.

- Brent Petersen, Melbourne FL

Ann was a great realtor who was patient with my home search and vigilant in guiding me through the process of negotiations and contracts. She's the best.

- Dan Schreiber, University City, MO

Kim made the home buying process enjoyable! I appreciate her experience and the genuine care she demonstrated throughout the process.

- Stacy R Owens

Our house was on the market for 6 months, no sale. Hired new agent, Eleanor Lyons Team, house had 2 offers the first open house. The team did a great job making suggestions, arranging for the different trades to come in get the work done. We were kept updated on every aspect of the process, which was challenging considering we moved 700 miles away. Sold our house for more than the initial asking price due to the teams recommendations. I would highly recommend the Eleanor Lyons Team to anyone wanting to sale their home.

- Rich Stanfill, Arvada, CO

Bill Shea is a very dedicated, hard working realtor. He listened and was a true partner throughout the entire process. His suggestions and support were very professional at all times. He is an asset to Berkshire.
