As a life long resident of St. Louis, I spent over 30 years in marketing and advertising.  After I retired, I decided to embark on my urban adventure and looked back to my roots in the City of St. Louis where I was born.  As I got older(smarter), I looked for a simpler lifestyle and decided to move back to the City. 

As I was looking for a new home, I had a strong nostalgic tie to the old City Hospital where I once lived and worked under a room and board program for college students.  I found myself visiting the display to see what all the "buzz" was about and found that I liked what I saw.  In retirement, I had spent numerous hours promoting City Living through volunteer activities with the Convention and Visitors Commission  and Forest Park Forever so the sights were already familar to me.   I decided to relocate to the City and purchased a new condo at the Georgian.  As the first resident to move-in, I soon became the unofficial resident ambassador.  When PREA Signature Realty took over the sales at the Georgian, Ryan Shaughnessy and Michelle Silies asked me to join their new brokerage and sales staff.  At age 72, I took the real estate licensing course, passed my licensing exam and joined the staff. 

Now, for some, new home sales can be a challenge.  However, I find it rewarding and it is easy to sell the lifestyle offered by the Georgian and City Living generally when you are living it and not just selling it.  So on your next trip to the City, call me.  It would be a pleasure to show you the Georgian and to share my city living experience.
