“One thing I have learned while working in real estate is that it is not just a sale or a lease that your client is committing to. For most people, this is the biggest financial decision they will make in their lives. It affects their families, friends, work, daily life, and pretty much every other tiny detail you can think of. It is my client’s stories and journeys that I am so lucky to be a part of, and every day I work to make sure that I can take this whole huge, sometimes scary process and turn it into something exciting, smooth and meaningful.”

I had a terrific experience with Julie Schaaf as my buyer specialist. My home buying process was very fast, largely thanks to her. After viewing many homes online (I began my search before being vaccinated for Covid19), Julie got me under contract on one of the first homes we viewed together. In fact, she worked past eleven o'clock on a Saturday night on the evening I went under contract! As a first time homebuyer, I found that Julie had timely, honest, and realistic answers to my questions throughout the process, and I think I was smart and very fortunate to follow her advice on each step. As a buyer specialist, she takes her responsibility to act in the best interest of the buyer in a serious and professional, yet courteous, manner. She was extremely hard-working and conscientious. I would feel very comfortable seeking out her expertise in the future or recommending her to a friend here in St Louis.

Julie Schaaf at The Gellman Team was a fabulous partner in the search to buy my first home. She took the time to really understand what factors were important to me, and she kept in close contact with me, very reliable and responsive, throughout our 3-month search. Enthusiastic, smart, and strategic, Julie kept me hopeful when I was discouraged, and she saved me from numerous potential problems when it came to the inspection and contracting phase. Julie was the guide I needed to navigate my way to my dream home… which we found! I’ve loved living in my new home for 7 months now. Thank you, Julie!

Julie at The Gellman Team is just awesome. Looking for a new house while in London is not an easy challenge. Julie was amazing, helpful, patient, and professional. She was incredibly responsive even over different time zones and knowledgeable of the market, even when it was an insane market place. I highly recommend Julie to anyone looking for the best realtor I know.

Above and BEYOND. I had the pleasure of working with Julie Schaaf while purchasing our first home in April and HO-LEE MO-LEE. I honestly don’t know if there is anything she didn’t help with during the whole process. It made what I thought would be a stressful process completely seamless and fulfilling. I wish I could give The Gellman Team six stars because of the amazing service she provided my wife and I. Highly recommend.
