As an outsider looking in, Arin offers a fresh, new perspective on how cool STL actually is. Having never visited St. Louis; she took a giant leap & moved from Portland to the Midwest. She was immediately hooked on St. Louis. Arin isn’t easily intimidated or shy & she’s one of those people who feels like you’ve known her your whole life when you meet her. From her past experience in corporate America she took away a pride in helping her team grow both personally & professionally & is now translating that into helping buyers & sellers achieve their goals. Arin’s favorite city spots are Tower Grove Park, Cherokee St & Fox Park. House hunting with Arin is a ton of fun, but you can’t work all the time. When she’s not writing contracts or returning emails, she likes to hang out at live comedy shows at the Improv Shop. For Arin, an ideal Saturday night would be hosting a game night where she can feed her friends & make them fun cocktails.
“The process of buying a home in a pandemic is no easy feat. Arin kept our spirits up as we rode the emotional rollercoaster of buying our first home. I cannot imagine this process without her. She is the perfect mix of nonsense and sass, smart as a whip and just the pal you want as your guide in dark moments of will we ever find a place to live.
Highly recommend to all, but especially timid first timers and nontraditional buyers. Ya'll got this with Arin on your side.”

“Working with Arin was an absolute joy, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat. My partner and I came to Arin with zero knowledge of home purchasing, and she walked us through every single step with such ease and encouragement. She made the whole process unintimidating – she did a great job of explaining processes and keeping us involved while also taking charge and standing ground for us when needed. We ended up dealing with a particularly difficult seller, and Arin went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of before we moved in; I can’t say enough good words about her work ethic and dedication to making the process seamless for her clients.
I also can’t pass up the opportunity to say how incredible it was to work with a queer realtor who didn’t question my relationship with my partner, knew exactly what our rights were as home purchasers, and was so invested in helping other queer folks thrive.
When you work with Arin, expect unmatched enthusiasm, get-sh*t-done motivation, incredible listening skills, a realtor who’s truly looking out for you, and a fantastic friend.”

“We absolutely loved working with Arin on our first home purchase! She was incredibly patient with us and helped us understand the true ins and outs of the whole home buying process. She introduced us to neighborhoods that we have ended up loving and exploring, even if we couldn't move into all of them. Both my husband and I really appreciated that she was so knowledgeable on the truly important things to consider when buying a home. She definitely encouraged us to look past the listing pictures and price and look into the true condition and other important factors of the home when making an offer (ahem, the basement!). On top of her technical knowledge of the ins and outs of real estate, we really appreciated Arin’s down to earth nature and how fun she was able to make the home buying process, even in such a hot market. Arin made sure that we felt like true partners in the home buying process. There is no question too small (or too dumb!) to ask her and her patience was endless. We cannot wait to show her what we have done with the house after moving in. Of course, we are also very excited to recommend her to family and friends as an amazing realtor and advocate for Saint Louis, especially as a fellow transplant to the city.”
