Stacey Cox with the Gellman Team helped us get the house of our dreams! She was consistent with her communication and always made us feel like we were her #1 client. We were blessed to have such an amazing buyers' agent help us find the perfect house for our family with her knowledge and guidance of our choice area. I strongly recommend contacting the Gellman Team, and specifically Stacey Cox, for your new home needs.

I became aware of the Gellman Team from listening to 97.1FM. After numerous times of visiting their website, I had a phone number that kept showing up on my caller ID that I didn't recognize. The caller was persistent and after literally a few months of ignoring it I finally answered it. It was a man named Chris offering to help me refine my search. I was kind of embarrassed that I'd been ignoring the guy when all he was trying to do was to offer his help in making my home search a more tailored approach. He followed up with me regularly and eventually when we were ready to put the house on the market it was a no-brainer to use the Gellman Team. We met with Neil and liked him very much. That's really the first criteria in our view.
We readied the home for sale and from the conversations with Chris and then with Neil, they both believed our home would sell quickly. We were urged to seriously begin the hunt for our next home and we met Rachel Nolen who became our agent on the buying end. The day after our home was listed on Zillow our buyers did a drive by and caught us outside with our dog. We invited them in and showed them our home. They returned two weeks later with their realtor and very shortly thereafter presented us with an offer. The team was very prompt with responding throughout the negotiating process and with helping us understand and navigate all the home selling/buying changes that had occurred since we last went through this adventure almost 17 years ago.
Rachel was beyond terrific. She seriously studied us and on a couple of occasions actually steered us away from a few homes that had piqued our interest because she knew things we didn't about either the home's location or structure. She went through bidding cycles with us on two homes before we got the one we're in now and was genuine in the emotions she exhibited during the process. That's another criteria, it's got to be genuine. Fake enthusiasm or disingenuous regret is pretty easy to spot when you've spent a lot of time with a person. Rachel was honest, open, and very professional in every encounter we had with her. It was our privilege to work with her and we wouldn't even think about calling anyone else should we need to embark on this journey again in the future.
Working with Rachel Nolen for the search and buy of my new house was a great experience. She was professional, timely and very personable. She asked what specifics I was looking for in my new house, helped me weigh and measure them with each home visit. Most of all when I would get "wow'ed" by something, she reminded me of all the other aspects that were 'off target' for my wants. She was candid when she most needed to be, and when I needed someone to keep me focused. She knew the stressers, and understood how to help me manage them. Her outgoing personality, yet very approachable demeanor along with great insight as to what I might be worrying about all helped keep me positive. She provided excellent guidence as to the "next steps", explained every very well & did not let me miss a beat. She was joy to work with, I highly recommend her!
Excellent home buying experience! The Gellman Team is by far the superior Real Estate Team in the St. Louis area. My agent, Rachel Nolen, made my home search and buying process truly enjoyable. After the quick sale of my previous home, which was also handled phenomenally by the Gellman Team, I needed to find a new home fast. After gathering information on what I was looking for, Rachel went to work and in two days helped me find and place a contract on a new home in the local area. Rachel did an awesome job guiding me through the decision process without making the decision for me. She took into account my current family needs while also keeping me awar of home benefits for future family needs. Rachel's professional yet personable attitude by far made a potentially stressful process one that I can forever look back on with a smile wrapped in success. Rachel's exceptional service did not stop once the contract was signed. With a quick 30 day closing and now about a week after closing, Rachel continues be a trusted resource as I settle into my new home. In summing up my experience with Rachel Nolen and the Gellman Team I would say that I am 'Simply Satisfied' with the team as a whole. I would definitely use their services again and highly recommend their services to anyone in the market to buy or sell.

I just bought my first home with Rachel. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor. She was extremely knowledgeable about the home-buying process and was patient to walk me through each step and answer my questions. She made herself available for me and I really felt she was committed to helping me complete the transaction from start to finish. She offered great advice and really understood what I wanted in my first home. I highly recommend her and the Gellman Team to anyone interested in purchasing a home!

We worked with Julie Bassin to purchase a home. She was so patient as we visited home after home, offering good insight and advice. If she had not gotten our contract written and presented that same day we would not have gotten the contract on the home we purchased. We would recommend her to anyone interested in purchasing a home!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in Creve Coeur, MO.
Mark was very responsive to our issues with our home sale process and helped to get it sold. He exhibited confidence and ability to get the house sold. We liked his team approach where he had people dedicated to home prep, advertising, negotiation, and closing. Under his advice and direction, we were able to sell the house long-distance from Europe using Internet and rapid delivery resources. We can without hesitation recommend Mark and his team to selling a home.

Mark and his team was extremely helpful in my buying and selling process. We were able to buy very well and are very happy in our current home. Mark and his team also personally assisted me with a step by step process in leasing my other home. I believe they are the top selling team in the state of Missouri, but they still have the time and patients to deal with detailed education and tutelage so that their clients understand the process, really amazing! Thank you!
