Established in 1853, Kirkwood Missouri boasts turn-of-the-century homes, thriving businesses and a strong, active community. Kirkwood has long been known for its down-home charm, community pride, nationally recognized schools, vibrant business community, and its involved residents. Kirkwood was established on the Pacific Railroad line that travels through St Louis, Webster Groves, Kirkwood, Valley Park, Eureka and Pacific. It was built as a response to the Great Fire of 1849 and the Cholera epidemic of 1849 that wiped out the population of Dowtnown St Louis.
Kirkwood homes vary from huge victorian style homes with wrap around porches to smaller bungalows and condominums. This area has been a strong area for infill construction and the sale of 'tear down's' where older homes on large lots are sold for the construction of large homes, often times built with a historic appearance to blend into the neighborhood.
Whether its historic charm, great highway access, top rated schools or access to parks, 'the Wood' is an attractive place to live. It has an eclectic balance that suits just about everyone looking for a suburban home. The 'downtown' Kirkwood area has become a vibrant city center that surrounds the train station that helped build the town in the beginning. A Farmer's Market, shops, cafe's, restaurants and galleries line the streets with plenty of foot traffic to support the businesses.
Population of Kirkwood has remained relatively stable, with a 2010 Census of 27,540 residents set on a an area of 9.16 square miles.

Finding the best St Louis real estate deals takes hard work, experience and luck. The chances of a home buyer finding a home for sale, recognizing the value, and negotiating all phases of the contract without a real estate professional would be tough.
Having enough time to search, having the real estate resources to find and recognize the value, and the network of other professionals to pull the deal together are things that Realtors develop and maintain over years of experience and hard work.
A buyer being able to "fall into" position to get the best price and other terms would be a feat.
The Premier Team recognizes this and works hard to be a top resource for St Louis home buyers.
Selling a home is equally difficult. After years of home selling experience, the Premier Team has worked with hundreds of buyers and has recieved the buyer feedback of thousands more.
We bring this knowledge into every listing appointment to share with St Louis home sellers.
Home selling also takes daily marketing to place homes in front of home buyers and other buyer's agents to have the most impact. A "For Sale" sign in the yard and an add in Sundays paper for a "by owner" sale rarely works, and getting the best price is virtually impossible. Most often, a St Louis real estate professional is needed.
