From the Inside Out (A Look at Who We Are)

At the Prudential Convention last month, one of the speakers – Peter Shenhan –  asked us, “what is the narrative about your brand?”

And that got me thinking about our story.  Who is Prudential Select Properties?  And what is our relationship to you?

The St. Louis real estate market has been defined by two major shifts over the last decade.  The first, as you all know, is the market shift.  But I’ll let George digress about that.  The second shift has been quieter.  As national corporations have taken over local real estate companies, the decisions that were once made by individuals living here are now made by national directives. 

Prudential Select Properties, when formed in 2002, was created to keep our local market. . . well. . . local.  St. Louis is our hometown.  We grew up here.  We live here.  We work here.   Who knows, you and I may even be neighbors. 

The thing is, we  know St. Louis.   We know its neighborhoods – we go to the Hill for Italian, hit the Loop for people watching and know Dogtown is the place to be on St. Patty’s day.  We were here when the Arena went down and can remember when Wildwood was actually country. 

 We know its quirks.  Our favorite summer treat is handed to us upside down too.  We can correctly (ehem or should I say incorrectly) say Gravois, Chouteau and Spoede.

But most of all, we know its market . . . because we live in the market.  Our decisions are made based on the same trends that your family experiences right down the street.     

Our journey here, with you, is an effort to describe who we are from the inside out.  We’d like to collectively present you with the voices that make up our company and our culture. 

Until the next time,

Sarah Grobe, Director of Marketing
