Reimagining Education

Real Estate Agents for Educational Progress

But how are the schools? The quality of education in Missouri impacts much more than our students’ success. School quality has a major and measurable impact on property values and the ability of a community to grow and prosper.

We know that real estate agents often hear, “What about the schools?” and we thought it would be helpful to let them know.

Starting in February of 2015, CEAM teamed up with Susan Sauer of Rome West Realty LLC, to provide local agents in the St. Louis area with more information about school scoring and the knowledge of school options available to their clients.  As a practicing real estate agent in St. Louis, Sauer is, “reminded every day that the importance of educational choices is a top priority not only for families seeking to buy or sell residential properties, but also for commercial interests seeking to locate in the area.”

In order to ensure that real estate agents are able to provide home-buyers with accurate and up to date information on school options in St. Louis, CEAM created Real Estate Agents for Educational Progress. We meet with agents to update them with the latest educational developments in the districts they primarily focus on, providing them with resources about schools and their scoring.

“As a realtor, it is my job to assist buyers and sellers in educating themselves about an area they are considering moving to. I try to provide resources for my clients to gather the information they need and connect them with professionals that best meet their specific situation.” – Susan Sauer of Rome West Realty LLC
Real estate agents who participate in Real Estate Agents for Educational Progress are more knowledgeable of the school options in the area, making them better equipped to answer questions from their clients. We provide them with resources that they can then pass along to their clients.

The goal is that the more informed you are, the better you will be able to navigate the educational opportunities available to you and your family, regardless of what part of St. Louis you call home.

We would also love to come to your agency and talk to the whole staff! Please feel free to email Cici@ceamteam.org if you are interested in hosting an agency meeting with us. Read more about Susan’s story here.
