I have sold and purchased a dozen properties over the last 25 years. In recent years, the role and value of the agent is being challenged, in a serious way, by technology. I would argue the value of the residential agent is more relevant as time goes on, but only if the agent has the skills of Megan Rowe and Joan Schnoebelen.
Megan and Joan bring three rare skills to the market. They care more than any agent I’ve worked with, their work ethic is relentless, and the scope of their services is simply not available in the market.
Selling a residential home in today’s market requires near appearance perfection to achieve a maximum purchase price: from the landscaping, touching up paint, to supplementing the right decor. Most agents sell these services and attempt to coordinate these activities. Joan and Megan don’t sell these skills, they are in their DNA and they take total ownership.
In my experience, it was the difference between financial disappointment and success, and I would recommend Joan and Megan to anyone for these reasons.
Lizzy was fantastic to work with during our most recent real estate transaction. She’s a wealth of knowledge when it comes to St. Louis real estate and a tireless worker who won’t settle until she finds the right situation for her clients. She’s honest and trustworthy and truly puts her customers first in every situation.
On top of that, Lizzy is a strong negotiator who pays attention to all areas of the transaction. We enjoyed the experience so much that we refer Lizzy to friends and will definitely work with her in the future.
We have bought two houses and sold two houses with Joan and Megan as our Realtors, and would never consider using anyone else to represent us as a buyer or seller. They are the absolute experts in the Ladue, Warson Woods, and the surrounding areas, and know everyone.
For almost every house we looked at, they knew its history and previous owners, and pluses and minuses from an investment standpoint. Whether it’s staging your house for a faster sale, negotiating the best price, or finding the perfect home to buy, we couldn’t recommend them higher.
Lizzy, a note of thanks for taking such good care of us in the purchase of our home. Your attention to detail no doubt saved us both time and money, and your knowledge of the marketplace was instrumental toward arriving at the correct price to pay for the house. I would be happy to recommend your services to any residential buyer, it’s important to have a pro to work within the real estate business.
We were impressed with the dedication you and Megan showed to a successful sale of our Clayton home and your ability to think outside the box. When our house had been on the market for two months and potential buyer interest slowed, your suggestion to offer a modest bonus to buyers agents for a limited time period appears to have sparked renewed interest and a successful sale.

We feel so lucky that we got to work with Lizzy when we moved back to Saint Louis. She asked all the right questions and immediately made us feel at ease. What impressed us most was her initiative and attention to detail. She was very proactive throughout our search for a new home, and she consistently followed up right away, taking care of anything that came up.
She and her team were always available and made us feel like no problem was too big and no question was too small. Lizzy responded to us quickly and got our questions answered, inspections set up, bids done. She was on it! And she was a wealth of information — she knows the St. Louis area so well, having grown up here and now raising a family here.
Even more than all of that, we appreciated her genuine advice and positive energy. We truly felt like we were in the best hands with Lizzy and her team.
