Deca Realty is the prominent property management company in St. Louis and now it wants to become a force in the local sales arena by forming 1 Degree Realty.
The company boasts a professional real estate team of “born and bred St. Louisans, who realized St. Louis is a great city with a small town feel.”
Not only do 1 Degree Realty agents know property, they also know neighborhoods, school districts, churches and amenities around the St. Louis area. 1 Degree Realty agents are committed to matching home buyers with communities where they will immediately feel at home.
Property owners who depend on Deca Realty for property management, can also work with the same agency when they decide to purchase or sell an investment property.
Steve Young, president and CFO of Deca Realty, attributes the success of the family-owned business, in part, to a personal philosophy: “Do the right thing, in the right way, for the right reasons, every time.” Young prides himself on Deca Realty’s reputation for customer service. It’s that same commitment to taking care of people that brought 1 Degree Realty into fruition.
“I am excited to be part of a new venture that is going to focus on the needs of our customers, and one that will provide service that exceeds expectations. At the end of the day all of us at 1 Degree will find great satisfaction in ‘bringing people home,'” said Young.
In keeping with Deca Realty’s values, 1 Degree will provide “boutique-like service” to their clients. The company has the most expertise on properties in South County, but the agents will be happy to service any property.
What Makes 1 Degree Realty Different?
With so many companies in the real estate market, how does 1 Degree stand apart? Young said, “Most real estate companies are focusing all their resources on technology and customer service is becoming secondary. The agents of 1 Degree will focus solely on the needs of our customers.”
The website further states, “Our power lies in our smaller size. Each agent offers 100% personalized customer service. Clients are not handed off to an assistant after the contract is signed – your agent is available from your first meeting to the successful closing of your property and beyond. And our brokerage does not pressure agents to meet quotas so you can rest assured your agent knows you by name, and not as a number or an address.”
That face-to-face, personal customer service, may seem indulgent in today’s digital, fast-paced marketplace. However, Young is convinced that “service” is what sets Deca Realty and 1 Degree Realty apart from similar agencies.
As Deca Realty nears its 30th anniversary, Young says he is looking forward to the new business, and to promoting the additional services now available through 1 Degree Realty.
