For Buyers

Providing above and beyond service every step of the way.

Representing Our Buyers


We start with a consultation to be sure we are catering to your needs Whether you’re a first-time buyer, experienced investor, or frequent mover, we will start with a consultation to be sure we understand your needs and that you have proper expectations of what’s to come.

We provide referrals to vendors In our many years in the industry, we’ve compiled a list of reputable vendors that we refer our clients to. Title companies, inspectors, lenders, insurance agents, surveyors, contractors, and more.

We understand evolving markets Through the years, we’ve experienced shifts from buyer’s to seller’s markets. We’re strategy savvy and know-how to help our clients make an offer that is acceptable to a seller based on factors other than just price.

We build a good rapport with the listing agent We truly believe that we can still negotiate and look out for our client's best interest while keeping an amicable relationship going with the agent representing the seller. We all have the same goal…to get our buyer into that home!


We utilize the latest technology The hot properties sell fast! We help our clients stay on top of things with proper searches, so we know the second their dream home comes on the market.

We truly work as a team There are several of us and that’s good for our clients. We fill in for each other. Our clients will never miss out on a hot property because their agent wasn’t available. We are all full-time realtors and are there when our clients need us!

We have FUN! There’s no doubt the homebuying process can be daunting. It’s our goal to help our clients navigate through with the least amount of stress possible, so they can focus on the excitement. Always looking forward to handing the keys over on closing day!

Our goal is to provide you with the most personalized service that is designed to help you buy your home.


Tammy Nilsen, acting as our buyer's agent, did an absolutely wonderful job and was lovely to work with. I'd highly recommend her and the group!

Tiffany was so helpful and knowledgeable. We just met when I started looking for a house. I felt she always had my best interest in mind. I would highly recommend Tiffany.

She is kind and professional. She provided great tips to improve our property for the sale and explained the current market and where are expectations should be. She made everything easy and the property sold quickly above market value. She is a great business partner who cares about her clients needs and treats each one like a friend.

We employed Tiffany to sell our home and to help find us our new forever home. She did both extremely quickly and hassle-free for us. Tiffany was on top of every aspect of the process, and was completely accessible to us whenever we needed an update, a showing scheduled, or something explained. If you want your house sold, or want to find your dream home, you simply will not find a better agent than Tiff...

Given the market for the last couple of years it took us 2 1/2 yrs to find a home we loved. Tammy was very patient and did not pressure us into increasing our budget or looking into areas where we preferred not to buy a home in. Overall, we had a great experience and Tammy was very knowledgeable about the entire process!

— Hannah D.


Tiffany was amazing to work with while selling our home. She jumped in to help us on very short notice and went above and beyond on every step of the process! She always took the time to answer all of our questions fully and address any concerns. We couldn’t have asked for better service and professionalism and won’t hesitate to recommend her to others from here on out. Thank you Tiffany!!

Tammy helped us to buy the exact home we wanted. She made the process very easy on my husband and me. I was actually a repeat customer, having purchased a house with her about 4 years prior. I would recommend her as a quality realtor.

Jen Svoboda and her team did a masterful job in helping us find and secure our new home. She (they) kept in constant contact throughout the process and made MANY helpful suggestions. We were able to avoid additional apartment charges thanks to her diligence. We wholeheartedly recommend Jen when it comes to realty.

— Howard S.


We could not have been happier about our experience with Jen Svoboda in buying our home in St. Louis. She went above and beyond to ensure we got the right home for us and continued to help us with details until we could arrive in Missouri. She definitely offers the best service we have had in the home-buying experience, and we recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell!

My wife and I became first time home owners this year and Tiffany helped us through every step of the way and landed us in our perfect home. It was really competitive when we were buying and she made sure we were right up there with the best bids but still feeling comfortable. Not only did she help us through the process but has kept in touch with us since purchasing and loves seeing pictures of how we h...

Tiffany was a joy to work with as I put my condo on the market - and sold it within hours of it going live!!! She was always enthusiastic and had great customer service.

Tammy was amazing to work with! Being first time home buyers we weren’t sure what to expect but Tammy guided us through every step of the process and gave us great advice that we will definitely use in the future!

Tammy is an outstanding agent. She worked with us for nearly a year and showed us a ton of homes, yet she never once made us feel like we were putting her out. She was always ready and willing to meet us anywhere, and she was super responsive and helped with all our random questions. She gave us great advice to make the best offer when we bought our new home and then helped us to get the very best pri...
