The comment we hear the most from our clients is "I really learned something". We are educators first about the home buying process and when we tour a home. If we did otherwise we wouldn't be able to find the home that best matches your needs. Our seller's love the attention they receive in selling their home including frequents open houses if they want them. Why are we successful? We have been a team way before realestate.

We stress this through our motto of "We Connect People with Homes and We Connect People with People". We know that no realestate transaction can take place without the value that other good team members provide wether it is the closer at the title company, the loan officer, admins who support our listings or the various vendors we use for repairs to get a home sold. Bringing that team together to help you buy or sell your home is our speciality. Our focus is on you and what you want in a home not what we think you want.

Accredited Buyer's Representative CNE Graduate, REALTOR® Institute New Construction Certified SFR Seniors Real Estate Specialist®
“Mike has been invaluable to us considering that we are out-of-state. He has acted as our proxy for many of the important steps in the process and has coordinated inspections and lined up contractors for work needed prior to and after closing.
We are very happy to have found Mike and consider him our friend now.”
“Mike is top notch material for a real estate agent. His knowledge and experience of having built homes from the ground up was instrumental in helping me to pick the right property. <br/><br/>His skills ...”
“A good friend of mine referred me to Mike. He had helped her to get her new home recently. She spoke very highly of him. I had a previous realtor with whom communication was just not working. From the very first conversation, Mike was professional and reassuring as I described my woes with my previous realtor. He was appreciative of me sharing a lot of details because I am a very detailed person. He invited me to be as open and honest with him, which was the polar opposite of what I had experienced with the previous real estate agent.
KNOWLEDGEABLE - Mike was extremely knowledgeable on the whole process. This was able to counteract the service failures of the loan officer, particularly when it came to getting the loan commitment and finalizing the deal for closing. Mike informed me of things that the loan officer should have informed me about. The loan officer's lack of communication made me feel somewhat deceived. I never felt this way with Mike.
TIMELY AND CLEAR COMMUNICATIONS - In light of all that went wrong with the loan officer, Mike shined all the more brightly because of his communications throughout the whole process. And there is no doubt that his being a God-fearing man is the reason why he rate him 'excellent' in all the categories mentioned above.
THE EXCHANGE OF CONTRACTS AND CLOSING - Mike demonstrated knowledge and determination to finalize the close. Unfortunately, the loan officer was absolutely horrible at this critical juncture by not communicating, not being present, and not showing ingenuity to overcome obstacles, all of which Mike did in fact do. His efforts saved this deal!
ATTENTION TO DETAIL & NEGOTIATING THE PRICE AND TERMS OF THE PURCHASE- This is where Mike really shined. He came up with a novel approach towards purchasing this property that initially was listed 'as-is'. He understood my desires, my needs and my financial situation. His expertise enabled him to work diligently with the listing agent to propose a deal that would take care of everyone's needs. Mike played his cards correctly and with cleverness. From what I understand, this deal was indeed unusual but doable if all parties were on the same page.
INSPECTIONS AND LOCAL KNOWLEDGE OF PROPERTIES - Mike's experience in building and maintaining various properties were a God-send. He was able to interpret the best strategies to take care of Florissant inspection issues including knowing what things we could do ourselves versus contracting it out. Mike saved me $4000-$5000 dollars on work by voluntarily taking on various tasks and showing me how to assist in getting the job complete. Yet, he selflessly bore the brunt of the work because I am not skilled in these areas. Beyond this, he did not berate me for being less mechanically inclined as he is. That mattered a whole lot to me personally.
Again, Mike was absolutely fantastic. I would definitely refer others to him. I am amazed that this particular house would have been a house that my previous real estate agent would have counselled me against, most likely due to his lack of experience in dealing with real estate. The thought that I could have missed out on great house with so much potential and that had all the major attributes that I was looking for in a house is just mind-boggling. And because Mike could see what I couldn't see, I have the pleasure of being in this house. When I shared the news with my family about the purchase, they were so overjoyed. Mike helped to make that possible. In addition, he has made himself available for post-sale giving me tips on fixing the house up. This has been very beneficial that it goes beyond the call of duty and that fact that I had access to him on issues that I am completely unfamiliar with in terms of housing is the icing on the cake.”
“Mike is a great agent, very knowledgeable and tireless in the pursuit of the best deal for his client!”
“He was a great agent, he took the time and really went above and beyond for us.”
“We have used Mike Simms multiple times to buy/sell property and have been extremely happy with the quality of service he provided. Two of our sales have been anything but ‘routine’. Mike worked tirelessly using his knowledge and expertise to make everything go as smoothly as possible for us.”
“Mike was amazing! Communicated daily on tasks and contracts that needed done making my part less stressful. I've already recommended him to a few friends”
“Life dictated the challenging circumstance of having to sell my house, which is a bit of an odd duck for the area it’s in, the week of Thanksgiving. With Teresa’s help and expertise though, the process couldn’t have gone any better. We had ten showings in five days on the market (again, this was Thanksgiving week!) and received *three* offers on the house. Within a week of listing, the house was under contract. I’ve worked with four different real estate agents over the past ten years, and no one comes close to matching Teresa’s knowledge, energy, friendliness, availability, or any other quality you need in a realtor. Can’t recommend her highly enough.”
“Mike did an amazing job from start to finish ish. He went above and beyond in providing customer service. He was always available for questions and made the experience very enjoyable and seamless.”
“Mike Simms was very easy to work with. He understood everything I was needing in order to move forward on the house I was building. Mike works 24/7 it seems like. He is always available. I really appreciate the amount of work he gets into to make sure that I am covered when it comes to dealing with the buyers. I did not have to worry about anything dealing with contracts because Mike took care of everything. I strongly recommend Mike Simms because he made my life easier while going through the whole process.”
“Mike Simms did everything he said he would get done. He did it continually until the property sold. His advise is sound, his reach and contacts are extensive, his professionalism is excellent, and he ...”
“If you want to sell your home, Michael Simms is the agent for you. Regardless of the challenges, competition, circumstances, or market, calling Mr. Simms and Berkshire Hathaway means that you have a partner until the job is accomplished. His advice is sound, his performance is excellent, his results are reliable. Job well done.”
“We could not have chosen a better realtor! We felt like we were Michaels only clients! We valued his level of commitment, knowledge of the process and area, outstanding communication skills, attention to details, understanding of our needs and our unique situation. This was critical as the house was vacant and live in a different state. He went over and above making sure the house was secured and running with no problems.He was flexible to accommodate our time differences and work schedules. Michael is able to work with all ranges of people. He was willing to communicate with neighbors and friends in the area and answer questions. We always believed he was on top of everything and left no stone unturned! We felt that Michael was committed to getting the best outcome. He respected and honored our Mothers wishes and I know she would have been pleased with the process and outcome.
He provided professional advise but always left the final decisions to us, a true team player! Needless to say, we both highly recommend him to take care of you, no matter what you're situation!”
“Mike’s an expert on the finer details of how the houses are constructed as well as the housing market overall. Mike cares more about what will work for you than to just sell you a home. He’s sold several ...”
“Mike is very knowledgeable of the market and found the right house for us. He was skillful in negotiating the best deal possible and worked diligently with us every step of the way. He went out of his ...”
“Mike helped me with my property in a number of ways through the years; finding renters (three times) introducing me to a property management company and eventually selling my property. Additionally, he put in some of his own labor to keep the home up to date affordably while I was living out of state. My situation was unique and Mike was able to remain flexible and supportive while working through a number of complicated and frustrating situations. Thanks Mike!”
“If you're searching for an agent, please do yourself a favor. Stop looking now and call Mike Simms because you will not find a better agent! Seriously, spend the next few hours getting your house ready to sell instead of pouring over the internet trying to decide on which agent to use. Mike will do whatever it takes to make sure your house selling transaction goes as smoothly as possible. Thanks to Mike we were able to both sell our house and buy the house we wanted in a new city. He went above and beyond. He is truly more concerned about seeing the needs of his costumers than he is in making the maximum commission that he can. Thanks Mike!”
“Mike Simms was always available to answer questions, he held lots of open houses, he kept us informed of changes in the market. Mike was a pleasure to work with and he went above and beyond what we expected form a realtor.”
“Mike and I came up with a game plan on when to list, our price and what to do to prepare. We followed that plan and sold my house for asking price with a 30 day close at the first Open House. Mike also ...”
“Workng with Mike was definately a blessing. He went above and beyond his expectations. To us he is not like any realtor that we have met. He wants to make sure that you are happy. We can tell he is ...”
“Mike Simms is an excellent agent. He thoroughly explained the home buying process every step of the way. He went above and beyond to assist me. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.”
“Michael Simms made the process of finding the perfect fixer upper for me seem easy. He was very knowledgeable and gave me helpful hints on how to repair some items in the house by myself but also had good repair companies to refer me to. He was available by phone whenever I had any kind of questions He is professional, very friendly and I will use him when it's time to sell and buy my next fixer upper. I will also highly recommend him to my friends and family for their real estate needs.”
“He was very helpful. Even though our budget was small he treated us like we were VIP's. He answered all our questions in a timely manner.
He was there guiding us through the whole process,and dealing with difficult sellers.
I have brain trauma and he was very patient. He helped explain everything in a way I would understand.
Michael Simms is very knowledgeable,always there for you through the whole process. I definitely would recommend him to family and friends, because I know he would work hard to get them the house that is right for them.”
“Mike was great at getting the inspection the buyers'agent missed. He also double checked everything so we could close early since we were out of town on the closing day.”
“As always Mike is very honest and professional. He did everything to meet our needs. He is very well educated and knows how to keep you at ease. I would recommend Mike Simms because there is no other realtor as patient and who is willing to keep his clients happy. Most realtors are pushy he is not. Mike makes sure that you get what works for you. I could go on and on but he is by far the best. He is the kind of realtor we need when it comes to buying and selling.”
“Michael Simms, from the first we met him, is a man of talent and exceptional energy. Professional, approachable, one trusts him as he answers honestly and openly about our concerns, trepidations and hopes. He is able to integrate all three into a successful paradigm that spells our success for all involved. He is:
High levels of communication skills
Sustains a remarkable work ethic
“If this is your first time purchasing a home, Mike will give you any, possibly all, information needed. He has a great deal of knowledge and no question is a dumb question. He makes sure you understand everything from what to look for when looking at a home to closing. He would even go into areas of a house that I wouldn’t dare go and come back with an honest opinion. He doesn’t pressure you and you can tell that it’s not about the commission more of making his client happy. I would definitely recommend him to everyone In my circle. He was very friendly with my kids, he earned a nickname from my son and will forever be called “Mr. Sir” Thanks Mike...We do love our new home!”
“Mike, knew what I was looking for in an investment property. He negotiated with the seller who was an owner agent. He was successful in getting the price I needed to have the property come in at but also got the majority of the concessions needed to close the deal. Very easy to work with. I will definitely use Mike again.”
“Mike has the highest standards of ethics, and one could not ask for a more caring, personable agent.”
Thank you so much for all the help. You were really a pleasure to work with. I enjoyed talking and connecting with you about all of our shared experiences. You also made buying a house a great experience. Mike you are an agent focused on customer service and satisfaction! You really took good care and made me feel important, I would highly recommend you to friends/family.
“He's the guy anybody in St. Louis should call. Period.”
“Mike was a pleasure to work with. I looked at many different homes for nearly three months and Mike was with me through it all. Would definitely recommend and use again!”
“Mike and his mustache are amazing. They are by far the best realtor team I've ever worked with and will recommend them to anyone selling or buying a home. Mike is very knowledgeable on all aspects of the business and is a genuinely nice person. Mustache maintained a professional appearance at all times and was always on top of what Mike was saying
Mike persevered through a tough selling season and kept us on track when we strayed from what we were really wanting in a house. Through negotiations, he represented us well while maintaining a business ethos that was beyond reproach.
My wife and I not only had a great experience, we made a great friend.
Thank you again Mike.”
“Mike went well beyond what i was expecting from a real estate agent. He put in so much work to make sure my house was ready to put on the market and repair issues were dealt with by closing. He researched ...”
“Mike went well beyond the normal duties of a realtor. He assisted and took charge of finding me repairman and vendors. He actively took the responsibility to make sure my home was ready to put on the market and ready to close. I dealt with multiple other realtors that were hands-off and disinterested in putting the effort in, to meet my needs. They were solely interested in listing the house and getting their commission. Mike made me feel like my home was the only home he was focused on.”
“Mike is a awesome agent, extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I had previously listed the home with a different real estate company. It sat for 6 months with only sporadic showings. That agent did not care about my needs only wanted me to sell at whatever price so she could get her commission. I took it off the market then contacted Mike. From day one Mike was utilizing the internet and immediately started having showings. Mike kept me informed every step of the way. He worked with me, other agents and prospective home buyers to get the price that I was happy with for the house. I can't say enough about Mike Simms as an agent. If I have real estate needs in the future Mike Simms would definitely be the agent I would contact.”
“Mike was very knowledgeable and helped us through the whole process. We didn't know anything about buying a home and he guided us through the whole process. The biggest thing he said is 'If the home doesn't feel like home don't buy it!'”
“Mike Sims was awesome my family loves him he's helped us four times in purchasing property and he will most likely helps us even more in the future.”
“Mike Simms went out of his way making the purchase of our new home and the sale of our previous home as seamless as possible. Helping us with a replacement window and being down on his knees with our ...”
“Mike is my go-to guy for all things real estate. I've worked with him on 4 or 5 projects, always with exceptional results. Mike knows the area cold, he's lived here many years, and has enough real, ...”
“Mr Simms is an excellent realtor and is very knowledgeable about the housing market and true values. He pays particular attention to detail with reference to the house you maybe interest in buying. He ...”
“Mike was extremely patient and took the time to recommend properties that fit my profile as well as going above and beyond expectations, a real pleasure to work with!”
“Michael Quigley is a phenomenal real estate agent, I learned a great deal about houses while taking on the task of buying my first home.”
“Mike is great. We are buying an investment property from out of town and we relied heavily on Mike for his experience and recommendations. He pointed us to the right areas of town and when we needed anything he was quick to take care of us. Will definitely do business with Mike again!”
“Mike just immediately was all in and seemed genuinely interested in helping me.
I felt Mike went out of his way to help me.
Great guy and sgent”
