Prudential Select Properties, when formed in 2002, was created to keep our local market. . . well. . . local. St. Louis is our hometown. We grew up here. We live here. We work here. Who knows, you and I may even be neighbors.
The thing is, we know St. Louis. We know it's neighborhoods - we go to the Hill for Italian, hit the Loop for people watching and know Dogtown is the place to be on St. Patty's day. We were here when the Arena went down and can remember when Wildwood was actually country.
We know it's quirks. Our favorite summer treat is handed to us upside down too. We can correctly (ahem or should I say incorrectly) say Gravois, Chouteau and Spoede.
But most of all, we know its market . . . because we live in the market. Our decisions are made based on the same trends that your family experiences right down the street.
