Don’t Take Our Word For It! Here’s What Our Clients Are Saying …



Judy Swearingen is THE BEST real estate agent around. She has so much enthusiasm and energy and she really went the extra mile for us. We were able to move out of town before selling because Judy offered to take care of the house for us. She was there to meet inspectors, turn the lights on and she watered my plants for me. She had two offers on the house in one week. She found the house for us when we moved to St Louis less than two years ago, and then she sold it fast after we were transferred. We think the world of Judy Swearingen!

The Ciliberto Team was very organized in the new home building/buying process. They made the process pleasant and easy. Frank Ciliberto worked with us to price the house and features within our price range with suggestions when needed. He was very knowledgeable about construction, design, and finished results. He was willing to address the few problems we had quickly and with appropriate professional workmen.

I had an excellent experience with Christine Mastis! She made the entire process go smoothly and it was nice having another set of eyes on things. She communicated very well and seemed to always be available.

This was our first home purchase. We knew nothing about the process of buying a home. Terri Sutton was, to the say the least... FANTASTIC!!! She made everything so incredibly easy for us! Terri Sutton was knowledgeable, personable and on HER GAME!

Celia Homsher is an outstanding professional. She is knowledgeable, accessible, efficient, friendly and communicative. It was truly a pleasure to work with her. I will definitely utilize Celia Homsher's expertise when it\'s time to purchase a home.

Rachel Boxdorfer really understands the process and conveys the appropriate information as needed. She responded quickly to texts and phone calls initiating conversations when necessary. She was very helpful with comps and market issues. She made sure seller and buyer concerns were addressed and did a great job assisting in the resolution of differences. She assisted the buyer’s agent with amendment issues and deadlines. As a licensed Real Estate Broker, I was impressed and pleased with Rachel Boxdorfer!

Kiki Kerch is delightful to work with and I have great confidence that she watches out for my best interest. In fact, I am a repeat customer of Kiki Kerch. Thanks again!

Diane Rumbo was very eager to do whatever it took to find me a home. I really appreciated all her help.

Cindy Wiest went above and beyond to help me (living in Arizona) relocate my mother from her home to a villa. Cindy cared, knowing this was a tough move for my mother. Both selling her home and purchasing the villa went smoothly for us. Thank you Cindy Wiest!

Ellen Casey could not have been more responsive, essentially handling our entire purchase negotiation while we were out of town. The follow up items needed for our pre-close were also handled very quickly. We have and would not hesitate to recommend Ellen to anyone we know even considering buying or selling a home. She makes the process easy and is very reliable. We feel fortunate to get to work with Ellen Casey!

Diane Radley always calls back right away. She was ready to go tour a home whenever we wanted to. I would use Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Alliance Real Estate again!

Maggie Malcolm always returned calls and emails promptly. She was willing to meet service people at the home and to go the extra mile. She helped us stick to our guns on the price. She researched prices in the area and knew what was going on in the larger market. We were pleased with the final selling price. We had very few problems but she did help in negotiating the demands of the buyer’s inspection. We have already referred her. We had a high volume of showings at times and it increased my appreciation for Maggie Malcolm’s professionalism. That was not our experience with all agents.

Susan Thomas knew the neighborhoods and the trends which helped us tremendously! She is GREAT! She laid the groundwork with the seller’s agent, giving us more negotiating room. She quickly handled anything that came up in an amicable way that helped to move things forward. We will definitely recommend Susan Thomas to others!

Rebecca Kraus went above and beyond! She helped with staging, finding workers to make repairs, and held frequent open houses. She was very knowledgeable and made many excellent suggestions. She always responded to my calls quickly. She kept me abreast of what needed to be done next. She used every marketing tool available and kept us informed of current changes in our market. She was very helpful when purchasing our new house also. She spent hours taking care of details and researching. Rebecca Kraus was the best! Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Alliance Real Estate gave us daily, weekly and monthly updates. I felt they were concerned with our needs and helped us in many ways along the road to selling our home. Thank you for making our sale as painless as possible.

Beth Herbster is an amazing agent. She never misses a beat. She was always available when we had a question or concern. This is the second time we have sold our house with Beth Herbster. Thanks!

Carol Hower has an exceptional skill set that made this sale happen in a short timeframe… less than 14 days!

Thank you, Jean Dolan, for your hard work in selling our condo. It has been a very long road with very little reward for you, but you were always cheerful and kind and had a smile on your face. Thank you, Jean Dolan, for everything!

No major issues came up. I think this has a lot to do with Janice Freeman! She stayed on top of everything, without a doubt! With Janice Freeman, I was confident that nothing was falling through the cracks.

Carol Weber has obviously been selling real estate for a long time and has a great deal of experience. She was completely knowledgeable about the administrative process, the best way to present our house on the internet and to people, and she was very good at developing a pricing strategy. I’m convinced that because of Carol Weber, we sold our house for 12 to 15% more than we otherwise would have! We tried selling our house for-sale-by-owner but had no luck. Carol recommended we raise our asking price, and that while it would be challenging to sell at the new price, she thought she could get it done. We had an offer within a month of Carol taking over as our agent and even had another competitive offer later. Carol Weber was probably worth $20,000 to $40,000 more than the other agents we interviewed. She probably saved my family’s finances. I have known several other real estate agents over the years and even have several in my family. I can say Carol Weber did more to get my house sold than ANY other REALTOR would have.

Jessica Griesbach showed me pricing on local properties and found what would be best for my situation. She was always in contact while still giving me space. She was fast and accurate and I had no problems. Jessica took care of everything. She was the best at understanding my needs and urgency. Jessica made me feel so comfortable with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Alliance Real Estate and my needs. For a first time home seller, she explained everything to me and walked me through every step. I never felt like she was looking for her commission above my life savings. She was always knowledgeable about the neighborhood and local markets. Jessica Griesbach was not only my REALTOR but ended up being a friend.

Cindy Baker was very patient with me and showed me countless homes and condos. When I found a condo in a complex that I liked, I lost it when someone bid more for it. Cindy found another condo owner in the same complex that was getting ready to sell but hadn’t listed yet. She helped me negotiate and ultimately buy the condo. She was there for me through the whole process. I would definitely recommend Cindy Baker to my friends and family. She was great!

Cheryl Wambach is experienced! She understood our needs and requests. She wrote contingencies that we would have missed, kept us appraised of the inspection, loan approval, etc, and kept us informed about communication with all parties. She worked well with sellers. She understood where we were coming from on our offer, and was able to convey that message. The final price was very close to our original offer. Thank you Cheryl Wambach!

I felt exceedingly comfortable buying a home with Chris Pericich. She knew the market and what to look for in a home purchase. She is very knowledgeable of the area in which we wanted to purchase as well as the St Louis market in general. She communicated clearly and is very detailed oriented. She gave good suggestions and feedback and thoroughly understands contracts. She made a challenging and somewhat scary event easy. Chris Pericich was friendly but also professional at all times and in all situations.

Patti Boyle Blumeyer has extensive experience and has developed a network of professionals to call upon. Her experience and strong community ties make her an excellent resource. Patti represented both the seller and the buyers in this purchase, which was agreed upon by both parties. She maintained a level of professionalism and objectivity and successfully completed the sale. Patti Boyle Blumeyer was a pleasure to work with!

Lynnsie Kantor’s friendliness and patience with us made communicating in different languages a positive experience throughout a lot of process and paperwork.

Roe McCabe was outstanding! Exceptional! State of art! Any buyer should be as lucky as I to have Roe represent them. Roe represented my parents in the purchase of their home 15 years ago. They spoke highly of him, but I truly had no idea just how exceptional he is as an agent and human being. I can’t express enough of my gratitude to Roe McCabe and will do everything I can to bring him future clients.

Carol and Ben Katz first helped us buy a condo 12 years ago, then a second condo 5 years ago. Having had their assistance earlier, we knew of their professionalism, their attention to detail, their extensive knowledge about real estate negotiations, and their integrity. There was no question that we would work with them again. One could not do better than Carol and Ben Katz!

Donna Blandford was very knowledgeable and was able to assist us with every step of the home buying process. She knows St Louis. Donna communicates clearly and is fun to talk with. She took care of all the little details for us. Donna went WAY beyond the selling agents normal tasks to ensure this deal went through. She stepped in and did whatever it took to get progress, often having to do tasks that were not really her responsibility. Donna Blandford is amazing and really cares about her clients!

We used Wendy Hermann to sell our home as well as to purchase our home 4 years ago, and both were great experiences! 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 Hermann as the top agent we have ever worked with. I will continue to funnel referrals to her as we have a large network in the St Louis area.

Kendra Downs has been very professional, incredibly responsive, generous with her time, and fun to work with! We feel very lucky to have connected to her for our real estate needs, and definitely will recommend Kendra Downs to anyone we know who is in the market.

Ann Espenschied knows this business. She is 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 many properties and Ann Espenschied is the best!

Melinda Lawson was wonderful and made the home buying experience less stressful and more exciting. She always had several homes in our price range and what we wanted lined up daily to look at. Email, text, or phone, she was always available. She gave us the best advice when looking at homes. We received the best deal and didn’t even have to pay one penny of closing costs. Melinda Lawson, you are the best and we love our new home!!! Thanks!!!

Steve Roth went above and beyond helping us buy our house. He answered all of our questions and pointed out things we should be aware of. He found us an excellent home inspector and lender. He also helped us with a VA loan. We would recommend Steve to anyone. Steve Roth, thank you for all your help. We are so grateful for all you have done. We will be happy to recommend your services to anyone buying a home!

Jonathan Smith treated this sale as most people would if it was a sale within their own family. Jonathan Smith has a great attitude and demeanor.

Jane Finnegan REALTOR = excellent. Myself = unsatisfactory. Luckily I had a great REALTOR!

Kim Jones is awesome! I can’t thank Kim Jones enough!

Patsy Androlewicz was my own agent and I was awesome! We used Ryan Lanfersieck with Metro Home Lending and closed at Investor’s Title. They were excellent!

Cindy Behnan did an awesome job of representing us!

Hannah Locks knows her real estate buying and selling process. One of the reasons I selected Hannah is due to her exemplary credentials in the real estate business. She is very effective. There was not a question she couldn’t answer and was continually providing me with updates as the sale approached. In addition to that, I had moved 500 miles away while she was selling my house so communication was paramount. I believe that because of Hannah’s experience in the real estate business she was able to walk me through the details of the offer, providing explanations as to why these details were relevant to me in the sale of my home. Hannah provided me with an understanding of how to address certain contract negotiations based on her knowledge of the subject matter. She always asked me to decide and offered different scenarios to address the problem/issue/or matter at hand. Hannah’s real estate knowledge surpasses any other real estate agent I have ever worked with…I am very impressed with Hannah Locks and words just cannot say enough on how well the sale went.

Diane Gorris is an extremely honest person, and that is extremely important to me. Diane Gorris did a great job for me!

I didn’t know much about the home buying process because this was my first time buying. Juli Ann Felsher and Carol Butler were so knowledgeable and patient. Juli Ann and Carol were excellent. The next time I go through this process, I look forward to working with Juli Ann Felsher and Carol Butler again!

Tina Meyers was fantastic! She was diligent, patient (I was a first time home buyer with lots of questions) and always willing to accommodate requests and make herself available (including multiple Friday evening showings). Tina Meyers made the whole process much, much easier than I expected.

Rose O’Hara was great to work with. I will definitely recommend her. Rose O’Hara was very good throughout the whole transaction!

Vicki Dimmich is constantly keeping me informed about the current market. She has always supported me when negotiating a purchase or sale. I have been doing business with Vicki since 2008 and I will use Vicki Dimmich again when the need arises.

Beth Herbster worked with us every step of the way and stayed in communication almost daily during the closing process. We had a glitch with our survey and she was right on top of the situation, helping us work through it. She was very good at knowing the details of the contract, and each step we needed to take. I will recommend Beth to any of my friends I know looking to buy or sell. She was the most responsive agent I have ever worked with and I have bought 3 houses. Beth Herbster has a top notch work ethic.

Cheryl Long has an unbelievable knowledge of the area. This is the third property she has sold for me. This was our toughest sale with lots of bumps. She responded wonderfully. I have already recommended Cheryl Long to others!

Clare Martin is very popular with her colleagues and is a team player. She really goes the extra mile helping her clients with every little detail. This is why Clare Martin gets listings! She is known as a really nice person who is in this business to give joy to people. Buying and selling homes gives a great deal of happiness.

We recently celebrated the two year anniversary of the purchase of our farm. We want Eric Merchant to know how much we appreciate his representation during the purchase process. Every piece of advice he gave us was right on. He encouraged us to buy the available ground surrounding the house which we did, and he also suggested that we wait six months before doing anything major to the property. He said to get to know the farm first and that also was great advice. Two years later, we realize that Eric Merchant helped us get the most out of our purchase and we want him to know how much we appreciate his efforts.

Juli Ann Felsher and Carol Butler are a great team to work with.  They are there to help navigate you through every step of the buying/selling process.  It was comforting to have each one by our side to make what could be a very stressful process so much smoother.  I really appreciated how they kept me up to date with our timeline so I was able to stay on top of inspections, closing, and the million other to-dos you face when buying and selling a home.  Their knowledge of the market was very helpful when figuring out what price we should list our house.  As a result of their knowledge of the market and neighborhood our house was only on the market for less than a week. Carol Butler and Juli Ann Felsher work great as a team!"
