Darci has been AMAZING throughout our adventure with her. She has been incredibly patient in the extended time it has taken our family to renovate my parent's home, and was able to get far more than expected when they placed their house on the market. We have been searching for a unique home - one with plenty of property included. There were many difficult hurdles that came with purchasing our home and she helped not only US in navigating each turn, but she also had to guide the sellers realtor at various points. I could not imagine having anyone else on our team. Very communicative, patient, understanding, informative, honest, and undaunted in making our dreams a reality. We are looking forward to her helping with the last step, selling my partners home in Hazelwood, and we have every confidence in her ability to make it happen when she says 'I will get you there!'

We worked with Tim Koppel on the sale of our home and finding a new home. Tim had worked with our daughter to help her find her first home and we saw how helpful and persistent he was that we wanted to work with him when we decided to make a move. Tim communicated with us regularly and answered all of our questions. I would recommend Tim.

- Tom Wentz, Weldon Spring, MO

Tim made the process extremely easy and stress free. That is exactly what we were looking for.

He would answer any questions we had and would be ready to help us at any time of the day to make sure our needs were met

Couldn’t ask for a better experience. Even with any hiccups in the process Tim was there to help and make everything easy. Tim or the best realtor we have dealt with and will use him anytime in the future.

Tim’s knowledge of the market and area was a big factor and Tim was highly recommended by others.

- Robby Wattler, Wentzville

Darci McAfee understood our needs and took the time to also understand our different personalities. She has communicated clearly and effectively from day one, been very responsive and was able to answer all of my (numerous) questions throughout the process. I have already and will continue to highly recommend her.

- April Belangee, St Louis Mo

Darci McAfee was simply amazing. She had a fantastic marketing program for our home that was executed perfectly. She was great to work with. Very quick on communication and answering all of my questions. I will be referring Darci to friends that are looking to sell their home or buy.

- Mark Stoddard, O'Fallon, MO

Darci McAfee was such a joy to work with, really knew how to lighten the mode when things got serious like they tend to do from time to time when buying a new home. She was always very punctual witch from a Military back round I found very comforting. Her adaptability set her apart from other realtors I have worked with in the past. Her knowing how to make my wife feel at ease and supported in her concerns was also a great service and much value added to our families relocation. Being knowledgeable of the schools in the multiple areas and comps vs. asking prices from other properties and knowing how to keep us on track in decision making assisted all to much in the way of gaining our respect and appreciation of her services.

- Jeromey and Ann Marie Baker and family Lake Saint Louis, Mo

Darci does whatever it takes for her clients. She did a fantastic job and I will always recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home. As a first time home buyer she guided me through what to look for in a home and what to be weary of. Her goal was not just to sell me a property but to make sure that I had everything I needed to make the right decision on a good property. This was an excellent experience and highly recommend seeking her out if you have any home buying needs.

- Lauren Froede - Valley Park

If you want someone to guide you through this process I guarantee Tim is a good choice.

- Justin Alcorn, St Charles

Darci made the process easy and worry free. I knew she understood what we were looking for in a home and would go to bat to get us the best home for our family.

- Clayton Meyer - Bridgeton

As this was my first time buying a home, I had a lot of questions over everything and the entire process. Tim Koppel was very helpful every step of the way and always willing to answer my questions. I would happily use Tim Koppel again on a future purchase, and will refer anyone that is in the market of buying a home to use Tim's services.

- Justin Siebert, Valley Park

When we decided to sell our home of thirty years and purchase a new one in a new area, we contacted Darci Mcafee right away. I knew Darci from her work with a sports league our sons were involved in and knew many people who used her real estate services. To say we were in unfamiliar territory is putting it lightly, we had no clue. Darci was with us for the whole journey, giving many pep talks through the process. Since we both bought and sold, we were able to get the best deal because of Darci and would highly recommend her to anyone dealing with either side of real estate. Thanks Darci!!

- Lisa Bower, Oakville, MO

Barbi was patience, understanding and always took initiative. She made me feel like I was her one and only client. If there was a bump in the road she magically calmed me down with her positivity and determination to get to the bottom of things. Look forward to working with her again in 5-10 years.

- Jessica Rivera,

Barbi is the best agent around. She did anything she needed to do to make an impossible deal work. She was very patient, compassionate and knowledgeable about the process. We can't wait to sell our previous home with her!

- Dan Davis, Troy, MO

Barbi was a tremendous asset to have during this entire process. Ran into difficulties with the seller and Barbi was always there for us when we had questions or needed something to be pushed on our behalf.

The ultimate professional. Always an extremely pleasant time when connecting with Barbi via phone or in person.

- Kenneth Blasingame St. Peter’s

Barbi was extremely hardworking and available at all times. We had to move up our closing by months to meet buyers needs, and Barbi stayed on top of all actions and keeping us updated appropriately.

My wife and I really enjoyed having Barbi as part of this hectic and stressful time of selling our first home. We always felt we were her top priority.

- Kenneth Blasingame O’Fallon

Barbi went above and beyond and always paid close attention to detail. I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else on my team when I was ready to sell my home.

Barbi was very professional, always prompt with communications, and knowledgeable about current market and surrounding area sales.

Made it a stress free experience with her dedication and expertise.

As soon as we contacted Barbi about selling our house, she started working and did not stop until our house was sold and our new house was ours. We appreciate everything she did during the entire process. Our house sold in one day and we got asking price for it. We are very pleased with how both the sale and purchase came out. We could not be happier.

- Brian and Colleen Dunston, Troy, MO

Barbi Blanke was outstanding. What made awesome was that no matter what time of the day, she always responded to me in 5 minutes or less. She also made the whole process so easy and was very fast when it came to writing the contract. She truly is amazing and made buying a home so easy and quick! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home because she pays close attention to detail, is fast and efficient, and really listens to her clients.

- Maggie, St. Charles

Charles Worsley is amazingly patient. I couldn't be more pleased with the both of them - he and Barbi Blanke. I can't imagine a better team to work with on something so stressful as selling a home. I was a mess through this whole process and they successfully sold my home - for over asking price - even dealing with my many 'freak out' texts after hours. This is how it's supposed to be done.

- Krissy, O'Fallon, MO

The level of information and service from Barbie was invaluable. She has a real feel for the industry and knows what is best for her clients.

Barbie went above and beyond all my expectations. It was amazing to me to see the difference in how other agents represented their clients compared to Barbie.

The best!

I loved having the title company located in the sales office for questions and reference.

When selling my home Barbie advised and pushed for me to take a back up contract. Good thing we did, as the first buyer defaulted and the second buyer worked out even better. Barbie kept me advised on all events, dates, and important terms through the entire contract. What an amazing Proffesional she is!

- Steve Ruff - Ofallon, MO

Barbi knew exactly what we were looking for in a new house and was great at getting us a good fair deal on a house!

Barbi was an amazing advocate for my family throughout this process. She was with us at each step of the way and was very accessible. Her knowledge, professionalism, and communication with us was top notch.

Barbi is an amazing person to have on your team when searching for a house. She sent many houses via the Internet and we went and saw a house and feel in love. She was with us each step of the process and answered all of our questions.

- Lindsey Remiger, Wentzville

Wow! Barbi is the best of the best! She handled the sale of the house with ease. She was always accessible and was very professional. She is very friendly and honest with us about the home. She helped tell us how the house needed to get ready for showing.

Everyone that we met at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Properties were polite, energetic, and helpful. Everyone introduced themselves and answered any questions we had.

We are very happy with the selling of our home.

Barbi knew what wanted to move and before we even put the house on the market she had a potential buyer for it.

- Lindsey Remiger, Ofallon

Barbie makes a point of understanding the customers situation and takes a polite professional approach to meet the challenges.

- Mark Vaughn, O'Fallon Mo.

Barbi was outstanding in handling our concerns and she was always reliable and easily accessible. Top notch Realtor!!

- David and Jen

We would recommend Barbi Blanke to all of our friends and family. In fact we have already referred her to a family member who will be closing on a home this week! Barbi brings a high level of customer service to the table, she pays close attention to every detail, and worked very hard to make sure that we got the house we wanted. Simply put, she exceeded our expectations from the very beginning and her desire to please us did not stop until we were moved in. When we told her we were putting our house on the market in Illinois, Barbi drove all the way over to our house to make sure we maximized the value of our home with how it was arranged and decorated even though she was not the agent. After we closed on our new home, she took the time to come over and help us move in and watch our 1 year old so we could focus on moving things in the house. It rained very hard when we were delivering furniture and Barbi even went to get a fan for us so we could dry our mattress and have a dry bed to sleep on the first night in our new home! My wife and I never felt as thought Barbi had her own interest in mind and at no point did we ever feel like she was using sales tactics to try and push us in one direction or another. She stayed focused on us and what we wanted and went above and beyond to ensure we were happy. This experience of working with Barbi and Berkshire Hathaway was an extremely pleasant one and we would recommend going with Barbi and BH to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Barbi is a rockstar at what she does and we have no doubt she will go far in the industry. Thanks for everything and please feel free to have anyone interested in using your service contact us directly as a reference.

- Mike & Kelly McBride - Wentzville, MO

Barbi was amazing throughout the entire experience. She listened to my preferences and found the perfect place. She is so dedicated to finding her buyer's something that makes them happy. She even went door to door and left fliers in communities that I was interested in. Her quick communication was impressive from scheduling showings through the contract and getting to closing. She was very professional throughout the whole process even though I know her personally. As a first time homeowner that experienced some bumps in the process, I couldn't have found a better person to be working with.

- Shawna Enlow

I recently had the pleasure of working with Barbi Blanke when selling my home. From day 1, Barbi was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for my home to provide a better staging view for any potential purchasers. To state the least she motivated both my fiance an myself to have our home showtime ready!

Within the first 6 hours of being listed, we had two offers and accepted the one who offered 6k over our asking price! All throughout the negotiations and closing, Barbi was there quickly handling any matters that may have arisen.

She stood by our side and handled all of the ups and downs during the purchasing process. Her cat like reactions to any and all new listings has help land a contract on the house of our dreams!!

Thank you Barbi for you excellent work

Matt & Katie

- Matthew Garofalo, St. Peters MO

Excellent communication and worked extremely hard. Very responsive and helpful. Highly recommended.

- David

Barbi Blanke was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finsh during our home buying experience. Barbi will have her clients best interest at heart and will go to bat for them. In past relocations we have been sold out by our agents who were just ensuring they captured their sale. Barbi went to bat for us during the contract negotiation and the inspection and as a result we saved thousands of dollars on our home purchase.

When I think about what someone should want in a realtor I truly think it should all come down to will your agent put your needs above all else. All the major companies have similar technology that will ensure you can find the right home, but what sets Barbi apart is what she will do for you once you have found the right home. in my mind, at the end of the day your realtor should be committed to you and that should be your top priority when searching for an agent.
