Lance Appleby - Dawn Griffin Real Estate Group

Lance is a Buyer’s Specialist on The Dawn Griffin Team at Circa Properties. An entrepreneur from a young age, Lance has extensive sales and leadership experience having owned his own business for 12 years. Lance is enthusiastic, driven, self-taught, and a true critical thinker who thoroughly researches new endeavors.

I’m an explorer by nature and one of the aspects I love best about real estate is the hunt – for the perfect home, for a great deal – I totally enjoy the challenge of finding the best possible outcome for my clients and bringing new ideas and options that they might not have thought of.

Born and raised in the Ballwin area, Lance has lived in the Shaw neighborhood for nearly ten years in a 100+ year old 2-story. He’s recently added an oversized garage and decorated his home office (Thanks, Covid!). He holds his family and friends near and dear and is a proud cancer survivor—no obstacle is too much for this guy to overcome! He’ll talk to you all day long about his pit bull Otis and don’t even get him started on the St. Louis Cardinals. Lance loves to travel and spent two months backpacking through Europe and Africa, has biked over 800 miles on Pacific Coast Highways, and completed a journey to Patagonia South America.

Always on the hunt for new challenges and adventures, Lance is eager to explore the neighborhoods of St. Louis with you, helping you discover and land your dream home.


Lance was amazing. We were first timers and knew nothing, he quickly taught us what to look out for and helped us figure out what we wanted. He was always available and responsive and was super easy to work with. Ultimately we owe the house we got to him by swooping in within hours of listing before anyone else. And the rest of Dawn Griffin’s team were also very helpful. We highly recommend Lance and his team.
