Why Choose Wm French?

Wm French does not list houses and acts only on the homebuyer’s behalf. This means that no homes get preferential treatment.

We scour the entire listing database of all available homes to find you the right fit. You will have peace of mind knowing that your agent is working only for your interests – to find the right home for you.

  • We have been in operation since 1977.
  • Our small team of agents is highly vetted and experienced. As of 2021 our agents average of 25 years working in the real estate industry and 15 years at our firm.
  • Our specialization is working with homebuyers who are relocating to St. Louis, but we can help anyone in the St. Louis area buy a home.

A Wm French Exclusive Buyer Agent will:

Traditional real estate agents both list homes and work with homebuyers. They have an incentive to promote the listings their agency carries. 

Wm French founder, Bill French, felt that this dynamic creates a conflict of interest and does not work in the homebuyer’s favor. That is why Wm French does not carry listings and works as an Exclusive Buyer’s Agency. Our goal is to help you find the best home on the market – period.

Rest assured that Wm French agents will point out potential defects or issues in homes that they see and give you honest advice during the home buying process.  

Wm French agents are highly vetted and average of 25 years of experience in the real estate industry. From market conditions, home values, contracts, and contingencies, Wm French agents will use their knowledge for your benefit.

Wm French only represents you – the home buyer – and will be your advocate during negotiations. This ensures that the seller and listing agent will not know your budget, finances, or strategy during the negotiation process.

We would love to work with you!

We are still able to help you buy a home if you plan to list your home with a seperate agent. If you do not have a listing agent, we are experts in the St. Louis real estate market and can recommend a listing agent who we think is a good fit for your needs. 

Wm French specializes in corporate relocation, but we can help anyone find a home in St. Louis.

An agent can act as a buyer agent and still carry listings. An exclusive buyer agent does not carry listings.

she was always there as the saftey-net
"...During the COVID crisis, work demands were incredible, and she was always there as the safety-net, keeping me moving in the right direction, without being pushy...Her knowledge of so many areas, and her candidness was refreshing. I've moved many times with my company. I wish they could duplicate her in other markets. She's the best I have ever worked with, and I have worked with many."

We are grateful for their support in our relocation.
Diane's support was essential to us making smart decisions. She was a very valuable resource to us during the home hunting process, closing, and has continued to support us after the close. I and my family are extremely pleased with the home, location, and community we found through Diane's efforts.
It could have been a nightmare
House hunting all day with 3 kids 6 and younger. It could have been a nightmare but Sandy made it a breeze. She was excellent with involving our kids as we looked through the homes while still pointing out the details that were important to the adults in the room. A+
attention to our "must haves"
"Thanks to Nancy's attention to detail, and paying attention to our "must haves", we were able to find our home on our first day out.  She has a talent for what she does, as our home was not one we had picked from the list she had sent, but she had a feeling we would love it, and we did!"
