Gracious living just steps from Tower Grove Park! The impressive front facade is just the start. From there, enter the large foyer with open staircase, from which the formal living & dining areas flow. A large wet bar area is adjacent, as is a full bath. The breakfast room flows from the updated kitchen. A rear staircase leads to the 2nd floor. There's even a 1st floor bedroom & attached sitting room. The 2nd floor features an office, 2 more good sized bedrooms, laundry room, hall bath & master suite. The master bath is huge - large as some bedrooms - with separate shower, jetted tub, double bowl vanity. There's even a covered deck off this suite. Numerous updates during ownership: wood flooring; solid surface counter-tops (Dec '16); bedroom carpets (Jan '17); new garage ('05); tear off & installation of a 30 year rubber membrane roof ('08); R-40 insulation added to attic space ('08); insulated windows; vinyl fence. Home Warranty ($525). Great home for entertaining, and a great value!

I have sold four homes over my lifetime. Tim helped me sell my last home and his work made it easily the smoothest sale I've had. We listed it a bit early in March, but I had a full price offer about six weeks later. He helped arrange the inevitable small repairs/ changes prompted by the buyer's  inspection, helped clean up some last minute stuff, and dealt with my angst more times than I'd like to admit. I would recommend Tim to anyone selling their home. He knows the market, is great at helping advertise the home, and coordinates his work with the buyers' agent to make sure that nothing is left to chance. S. Kluth - 5149 Oakfire Dr.
Tim is very knowledge about the different areas in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, and St. Charles County. We couldn't have found a better agent to help us with finding our perfect forever home. We had very specific wants and needs with this home. Tim listened to us and helped us find homes to tour. He also offered great insight while looking for a home. He pointed thing out to us that we would not have considered. Such as having high ceilings verses vaulted. The added heating and cooling expense.

Tim always kept us informed along the way. Anytime I had a question he responded very quickly. Tim is considerate and personable. We feel you couldn't find a better agent to handle your real estate needs. Leslie M - 115 Bobcat Ct.
