Lage Real Estate is a locally owned Real Estate Management company based out of St. Charles, MO. The company was formed by purchasing single family long term residential homes, and has since expanded vacation rental properties, mixed use commercial, and long term residential properties. The company has grown significantly since the start of 2021 and is planning to open many more short term rental properties before the end of 2024.
Meet the Stay Lage Family!
In July 2013, my real estate journey began in Cape Girardeau, MO, where I acquired a quaint 4-bedroom house near SEMO University for $75,000. Over the next year, I acquired 2 more homes, followed by 6 more the following year, and then 11 more the next, taking an aggressive leveraging approach to acquire more homes. A new chapter unfolded in 2016 when I relocated to St. Louis, MO. Here, I diversified my acquisition strategies, employing methods like 'contract for deed,' lease purchase, traditional financing, and equity-based purchases. This aggressive approach was working out well for me, and in 2019, I ventured into the world of short-term and vacation rentals, spurred by the unexpected success of a 300-square-foot unit I rehabbed in St. Charles, MO. Then the Covid pandemic shifted the landscape, and I pivoted towards mixed-use properties in prime locations like Main Street St. Charles. This avenue harmoniously merged my passion for history with my real estate interests, allowing me to play a part in preserving historical architecture while maximizing its economic potential. By the close of 2021, my expertise in managing short-term rentals opened another avenue. After successfully managing a friend’s rental, word spread, and our property management arm took shape. At Lage Real Estate Management, we pride ourselves on data-driven performance evaluations, holding ourselves accountable and refining our strategies based on market trends. I am empowered and motivated by relationships, and I want to find ways for the win-win. Including when I buy real estate. Most people don't treat real estate as a relationship, but it is.And when you care how the other person wins too, they tend to help make certain you do as well. That mindset is how I continue to get deals today, solid referrals and network and honoring your word. I am so proud of the culture we have built at Lage Real Estate Management. We have really unbelievable people who I care about deeply and I want to see their success in life and work. I honestly and sincerely love everyone on my team with me. If our growth just stopped today, I would be forever appreciative of the people I am surrounded by. I am incredibly blessed to have my unbelievable family. My wife Stephanie is a Kindergarten Teacher at Parkway Schools and is my rock everyday. She holds me accountable, reminds me of my 'why' and makes certain I always work within our morals and ethics. My oldest son Kaden has grown tremendously and has shown an amazing work ethic, deep intelligence, and strong moral integrity. My daughter Adelyn is my twin, in every way. Creative and hard working, everyone's best friend, and unbelievably kind natured. And my youngest son Wally (named for my late father) is the life of the party while being incredibly charming. He is the sweetest little boy! I am the luckiest guy on the planet. I have a wonderful, supportive family and this job gives me the ability to keep them the priority. And everyday, I get to work in an environment that I got to create. It's incredibly special to build a place where you want to work and spend your time and energy.
