Leo’s amicable & down-to-earth vibe stems from his small town, big family roots. Growing up in a super-small town in central Missouri with 10 siblings gave him a solid foundation to begin a 20+ year career in success management & a desire to help folks buy & sell homes in a town he loves. Some of Leo’s favorite neighborhoods are Shaw, Benton Park & he & husband, Chris, currently call South Hampton home. Leo is an excellent listener & loves to hear people’s stories. If you’ve got jokes, bring it. He has one of the best laughs ever & you won’t be disappointed. "Fun Time Leo" can make your house hunting an adventure. Leo’s loves & hates are as follows; loves camping & riding UTV’s, decorating, volunteering & estate sales. He’s not a fan of black licorice (is anyone?) & coffee (what do people even drink in the morning if they don’t like coffee…maybe ask him when you meet him).
“I can’t imagine finding a better fit than Leo for our home search. He was quick, efficient, communicated what we needed to consider at each step, and was incredibly knowledgeable. He was also just a fun person to spend our time with overall. We can’t thank him enough for how smooth our home buying process was.”

“Leo is fantastic! Having him by our side to navigate this crazy, cut throat market made the homebuying process as painless as possible. His knowledge of the St. Louis area and negotiation skills are top notch! He went to bat for us with the seller to get the repairs we wanted. We couldn't be happier with our experience. Go with Leo and you too will find the house that is right for you!”
- Katy Paul
“My Fiancé and I recently closed on a house with Leo guiding us through the entire process. We met Leo at an open house and were immediately impressed by his professionalism, knowledge, and passion for finding the right home for his clients. From beginning to end Leo was always available to answer any questions we had and ease our concerns as first time home buyers. He took a lot of time to explain the process to us and make sure we were comfortable with everything, whether it was the loan, putting in an offer, the inspection, or closing. Any time we had questions he would respond to texts, calls, and emails in a timely manner. With Leo as our guide, we were able to negotiate for almost every repair and maintenance item we wanted after completing our inspection. Even after closing, Leo has made himself available to us for questions regarding home improvements and has extended his contacts to us for our contractor needs. If you want to work with someone who genuinely cares about finding the perfect home for you and your family, Leo is your guy! You will not be disappointed.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Leo and could not be more grateful for the work he did. Due to circumstances beyond Leo and I’s control, it took longer than usual to close on my house after going under contract. Leo was incredible during this time and turned what could’ve been a very stressful situation into a breeze for me. As numerous obstacles continued to emerge, Leo would have every option / solution already prepared by the time he explained the issue to me. I found Leo’s input and knowledge of the area to be invaluable as well during the home buying process. But the most important quality of any professional is honesty, and you will find that in Leo. There is no doubt that I would use Leo again as a realtor and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house in St. Louis.”
