)-- Prudential Select Properties, a provider of residential real estate services to the greater St. Louis area, has now expanded.
The firm has now opened a new office in Clayton. Their new office address, which is Upper End Properties, is 7721 Clayton Road.
“We are so pleased to have expanded into this location now, and we are very eager to serve our clients in Clayton and the surrounding area in a closer location,” said George Bruns, President and CEO of Prudential Select Properties.
Cory Spielberg, Principal owner of Upper End Properties, has also reached an agreement with Prudential Select Properties in which Prudential Select Properties will own half interest in Upper End Leasing and Property Management.
“We are pleased to welcome the agents and management of Upper End Properties to our Prudential Select family,” said Bruns. “They have distinguished themselves as successful and professional agents in their market. They will play a critical role in the future growth strategies of our company in the very important I 64/40 corridor of St. Louis and Clayton.”
Both of these transactions closed at the end of January 2013.
“With this sale, we have given our agents a great new home,” said Spielberg. “Prudential Select Properties has the resources from a technology and training standpoint to help substantially increase each agent’s productivity. Furthermore, as we continue to grow our leasing and management services we hope to give existing Prudential agents a solution they can trust by handling any of their current clients’ management and leasing needs through our new joint venture.”
Prudential Select Properties has already selected one of their own to head up the new Clayton location.
“I am proud to announce that the manager of our Clayton office is Gretchen Adams,” said Bruns. “Gretchen has been an outstanding sales associate and trainer in our Des Peres location for 6 years, and her work ethic and determination make her the perfect leader for this new location.”
Adams, who graduated from William Woods University with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration, has been with Prudential Select Properties since 2005 and has three years of Prudential office trainer experience. She worked with RE/MAX prior to joining Prudential’s team.
“It is a privilege and honor to have been selected as the manager of the new Prudential Select Properties Clayton location,” said Adams. “In an ever-changing real estate market this expansion will allow new growth in relationships and business opportunities. I am eager to make a positive contribution to the continued growth of Prudential Select Properties and a deep sense of gratitude to the owners and management for their faith and confidence in my real estate ability.”
