Lunch @ the new Herbie’s in Clayton


Open for Business!

This past week I had lunch at Herbies in Clayton. I am sad that Herbie’s moved from the Central West End, though happy that it is in walking distance from my office now. The food was yummy and I can’t wait to try it for dinner!  I would recommend that you make a reservation for lunch or dinner since it seems to be very popular!






Clayton Home Sold and a 5 Star Review


I was able to assist a lovely family with buying this fabulous home in Clayton. We were dealing with a multiple contract situation, but I was able to negotiate on behalf of my clients to make sure their contract was accepted. Below is the Zillow review as seen here.

 11/27/2016 – MRKAES2016

Ted helped us secure a desirable home in a neighborhood that had a very tight housing market. Ted gave us priceless advice on how to bid for the house when in a multiple bid situation. He was always responsive when we needed advice. Ted is passionate about residential real estate. With his  excellent understanding of his buyers, he helped us steer clear of properties that were unsuitable for our needs. Ted’s low-key, understated manner belies a keen and forceful command of his trade. It’s no wonder he is at the top of his game in St. Louis on both the buying and selling side. I’d never hesitate to recommend Ted to either a buyer or a seller of St. Louis real estate.

St. Louis Strong Community Roundtable in Clayton: Thursday, October 6, 6-8PM


What is Saint Louis Strong?

Saint Louis Strong is an aspiring 501(c)(4) social welfare nonprofit group advocating for unification of St. Louis City into St. Louis County. Through inclusive and nonpartisan means St. Louis Strong seeks to build an diverse grassroots movement to mount support for its efforts. While other nonprofits do examine this issue, their 501(c)(3) status limits them from political activity. We seek to partner with these informative groups and collaborate with various stakeholders in the region. At the end of the buck stops with each resident. Let’s make sure we’re building strong future for St. Louis by working together today.

From the Facebook event.

After Better Together’s series of reports, the Ferguson Commission report, the Police Executive Research report, and the Department of Justice report, it is time for citizens to take the facts into their own hands. Join us at our third roundtable as we review how fragmentation affects you the individual. Together we’ll brainstorm on how to use our region’s resources more effectively.

Our goal is to amplify the voice of the average resident and to connect neighbors under a shared desire for meaningful and effective policy change.
