Garcia Properties was founded by Jenifer & Ivan Garcia in 1999 with one driving desire -- to leave whatever they touched a little better.

Garcia Properties had humble beginnings & the kind of stories you share around a campfire. After a slew of miserable jobs & a failed get-rich-quick conference (ha), it was a simple 80-page book on rehabbing mobile homes that sparked a vision. After a short stint in the mobile home industry, the Garicas began rehabbing 4-family homes in South City — one at a time — with care, precision & a deep-seated love for the neighborhood they called home...& people quickly took note. One 4-family led to another, one skill led to the next & before long both sides of the family had packed their bags & moved to St. Louis to join the upstart business.

21 years later, Garcia Properties, Garcia Mortgage Team, Garcia Construction & Garcia Property Management still operate with that same attention to detail, care & love for the city.

“We don’t have a business plan, we don’t have a motto. What we do is wake up, work our asses off, do right by people, go to bed, repeat.”

It’s that simple mantra, along with an interwoven passion to make their neighborhood a better place & St. Louis a better city, that continues to drive all facets of the Garcia brand.


The Garcia Advantage

Selling? Our hyper-cooperative agents and collective experience means less days on the market and the highest sale price possible.

Buying? Our extensive network gives you access to more inventory than you’d get by tooling around the internet, stalking open houses, or using the average agent. However, finding your home is just the beginning. We’ll guide you through the often-bumpy homebuying process while keeping it fun.

Full-Time Realtors

We are full-time Realtors who live & breathe real estate. Today, everyone has a smartphone in their pocket more powerful than the computers that put a man on the moon. Information is no longer king (and don’t even get us started on Zillow — the National Inquirer of Real Estate). Our hustle, cooperation, & experience are the real competitive advantages you need.

Lifelong Partners

At the end of the day, we are advisors, not salespeople. We’re not looking to “make a sale” (eww – that even sounds gross!); we are here to “wow” you with our service & create partnerships for life.


"Our homes tell a story. Garcia Properties helps create those stories."
