 My reason for being a real estate agent is to try to protect buyers from buying a lemon, a nightmare house with hidden major defects like foundation issues or even hidden subtle issues like mold and termites. I think I have knowledge of construction defects, remodel issues that some flippers do when updating houses. I usually can spot many do it yourselfer mistakes but I also see value and potential in original, run down and dated homes. I understand you can put a contract on a house and have a professional home inspector find issues and defects but not always and sometimes they still have to refer you to an engineer or other professional and the cost adds up. You also have to consider that you're under a time constraint during the inspection period and that can be stressful. Pick me to house hunt and I will "pick apart" issues and defects then you would have a much better idea what you are up against in the buying process. I can save you unwanted expenses in the process and also give you ballpark estimates of repairs from my construction and plumbing background. Want to list your house ? I have a team that can help, staging your own furnishings, minor construction repairs like drywall repairs, painting, color selection, change of lighting fixtures or cleaning and clearing out recommendations that will help you earn top dollar without doing major updates like some agents recommend and you're left without a return on that investment. Work with me and you will gain knowledge of the current market trends and how to decipher the pro's and con's and options available to you.

Ask Lou Salamone


We interviewed several real estate agents to purchase our home in St. Louis. We loved Lou's approach and he is very knowledgeable about the market and quality/construction of homes. We provided a large price range and area range as we did not know exactly what we wanted. He helped us narrow it down by showing us houses at different price points and areas. We often could not go on the showings since we lived out of state so he would often show houses to our Son who is college aged. We found the perfect house and Lou helped us secure the deal against other buyers. Highly recommend Lou!

Mr. Lou as I would call him did an outstanding job for us. His presentations made life a little easier on what we should do or what needed to be fixed etc. etc. There were times when he fixed something for us or painted something that needed a little cleaning up. Mr. Lou answered all the questions we had and we felt he was happy to be helping us. We, Lois and I would gladly recommend Mr. Lou to anyone. You will notice the house fairly quickly. Thanks.

Lou did a fantastic job assisting us with getting the house ready for show, de-cluttering, updating, and was responsive to all realtors inquiring about the listing, and ultimately leading to a contract. I would recommend Lou to anyone who wants to sell their home fast.

Lou did an outstanding job with the purchase of our new house. Having previously lost out to higher bidders, Lou was very instrumental in helping us with the strategy and structuring of our offer that the owners accepted, even though there were 2 bids higher than ours. We highly recommend Lou Salamone in the purchase of your new home or the sale of your old home.

Lou really helped a great deal. We would not have gotten the price we did without him. He was very helpful and thorough during the whole process from signing the contract through closing. He walked us through the entire process and explained every little detail and what to expect. Lou did an outstanding job!

- James H

Working with Lou was great! I would recommend him to any of my friends or family. He always promptly answered any of my questions or texts. He went above and beyond to help us get our house ready. He helped us fix some loose gutters, haul away some of our junk and even edged our lawn! Selling a house is stressful but having someone we could trust with our home sale made the process easier.

Lou helped us immeasurably throughout the entire move. Having lived in our home for 44+ years, we needed much assistance in planning our move, selling our home and arranging all of the permit compliance. Lou offered assistance to us all along the way during our ten weeks of continuous preparation. We have never experienced or heard of anyone else's experience in having such a personal attention from a realtor. Thank you Lou Salamone, Mike and Mary Stoppelman
