After finding out how much college actually costs, Rueben decided his young life's savings was better spent building a real estate portfolio than seeking a secondary education (& he wasn't wrong). Now he & husband, Danny, own rental properties throughout St. Louis & lay claim both East & West of Kingshighway. Rueben enjoys helping first time home buyers & investors build wealth of their own in real estate. If you're a new investor, you need Rueben in your life. He will pour into you his love for real estate & will empower you with knowledge. While Rueben is a proud city resident, he'll eagerly take your home or investment search in any direction. He's not afraid of going outside the 270 bubble, if that's where you want to be, that's where he goes.
Rueben is one of those wake up before dawn type of guys & if he doesn't have a Wall Street Journal in hand, there's a good chance NPR is playing in the background. He's both a Cardinals & a Royals fan, so you can't be mad at him. When Rueben isn’t at his computer ready to literally do anything for you, he & Danny can be found keeping up with his beloved nieces & nephews, out hiking trails with their rescue pit, Lulu, or just being outdoors. Trekking around a new city or relaxing on a beach are always among his travel goals & he is determined to see the world by working hard & living small.
“I have used Rueben for several real estate transactions this past year and a half, both for investment properties and my primary residence. Rueben and his agency, Garcia Properties specialize in the south St. Louis area. Rueben has been an invaluable partner in helping my attain my real estate goals both for buying and selling. He is very knowledgeable on the area and the different types of housing stock located in St. Louis. Rueben really does go above and beyond to ensure transactions go forward without a hitch. He is a great resource for vendors and suppliers in the area. He also has great ethics and integrity. I highly recommend Rueben for all of your real estate needs.”

“Rueben makes it happen! First time home buyer and newer to St. Louis, Rueben took me under his wing and made sure I was taken care of. His negotiation skills, knowledge of the market and neighborhoods, willingness to brainstorm and entertain my changing ideas of what I was looking for, and friendly advice on how to get the most out of homeownership landed me in a home that is more perfect than I could even imagine.”
