Hi, I’m Marci.

A St. Louis Realtor with a love for style, design and decor.  I wanted to create a place for my clients and friends to see that you can make any house a home & good taste doesn’t have to break the bank!

When helping clients buy homes, I’ve noticed that so many can’t see past ugly paint, flooring or some of the other cosmetic eye sores we run into.  Heck, even my husband is this “client”! When I go into a home, regardless if I’m looking for a client or an investment property for myself my brain immediately starts thinking of all the things that could be done, and in particular, what I would do to completely change and personalize the space.  I often share some of these ideas with clients as we tour homes, but decided to start documenting some of the things I do around my own house so others who can’t visualize the possibilities can SEE what can be done! 

Welcome to my tiny spot on the internet, Living In The Lou.

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

My Story

I grew up in Washington, Missouri, attended college at Southern Illinois University and then moved to Los Angeles for 6 years where I met friends who I consider family, had the time of my life, and started dating my now husband. We are both from St. Louis, and in 2012 we decided it was time to move back to the midwest to be closer to family. Shortly after moving back to St. Louis is when I got into Real Estate, and I haven’t looked back since!

For Fun

My husband Mike and I LOVE traveling. Our favorite destination to date? San Sabastian, Spain. The best food we’ve ever had! In the summers we enjoy boating at Lake of the Ozarks and in Northern Michigan. Around the Lou we love going on bike rides, winery trips, dinner with friends, game nights with family, and attending as many Cardinals and Blues games as we can fit in!
