Spotlight: The Warner Hall Group
Firsthand knowledge and personal experience are definite advantages in any industry, especially real estate. Jeffrey Warner, co-founding partner of Warner Hall Group in Clayton, says when you’re buying or selling a home, you want an agent who has lived in local neighborhoods and understands available resources and amenities, not one who has just read about the area. An informed and experienced realtor is the one who can best connect you with your next home—or find the right buyer for your current one, he says.
According to Warner, his firm’s growth and success are proof that personal knowledge of the local market really counts. “Most of us were born and raised in the St. Louis area, so we have a deep understanding of it and constantly are expanding our expertise,” he notes. “Our staff holds multiple specialty designations and certifications in residential real estate, luxury home marketing and relocation. We work hard to ensure that clients moving to the area have the resources they need.”
The Warner Hall Group also has considerable experience in the refurbishment and marketing of historic homes, according to Warner. “Co-founding partner Sam Hall has a background in contracting, and both Sam and I have personally renovated a number of important older properties in the area,” he notes. “We have a real passion for bringing them back to life.” Warner says his team is proud to be part of Dielmann Sotheby’s International Real Estate in downtown Clayton. The affiliation allows them to take advantage of technology advances, marketing resources, institutional knowledge and data unavailable at other firms. Staff includes Ann Gold, Anna Welke, Amy Guirl, Kathy Bader, Alex Sturma and Mitzi Sumner, all of whom have helped propel the firm to high rankings among luxury real estate companies in St. Louis, Warner notes.
“We are the only small agent group to be ranked among the top teams for production in St. Louis city and county,” he says. “We are the top selling agents for the entire central corridor, which includes Clayton, the Central West End, Brentwood, Richmond Heights, Maplewood, University City, Ladue, Olivette and Frontenac, and top selling Clayton agents uniquely.” Warner notes that team members truly love their work, enjoy putting clients’ needs first and pride themselves on promoting the region. “We consider ourselves ambassadors for the central corridor and the entire St. Louis area,” he says. “One of our favorite things is introducing people to all the city offers and showing them what a great lifestyle they can have in this community. We think St. Louis is rising like a phoenix, and we are very proud to live and work here.”
