Natalie is a Buyer’s Specialist at The Dawn Griffin Group. Prior to joining our team, she was a Transaction Coordinator at Circa Properties. Growing up in small town Iowa, Natalie was exposed to the real estate business from day one. Her dad owns and operates a real estate company in her hometown, and her mom founded and chaired the Beautification Commission, an advisory board for the city council that’s dedicated to improving the community. Natalie spent weekends helping pick up “for sale” signs and did her homework sitting at agents’ desks, so it’s safe to say that the real estate world has always felt like home!
While earning her Master’s in Education and teaching students with disabilities in New York City, she visited friends living in St. Louis, and immediately fell in love with the character and charm of the neighborhoods. She moved here six months later, and when she found herself attending lectures about St. Louis history and reading books about architecture for fun, she knew it was time to come back “home” to real estate.
Natalie’s years as a Transaction Coordinator honed her real estate skills. She knows firsthand the importance of meeting deadlines and all the details that go into getting clients to closing. Her experience in the classroom makes her a pro at breaking down and explaining concepts, whether it’s an algebra problem or the timeline of the buying process. Her patience and curiosity are what made her great as a teacher, and are attributes that make her a great agent. Her patience means clients are encouraged to ask unlimited questions, and her curiosity means she’ll explore any neighborhood to help clients find the perfect place to call home.
Outside of real estate, you can find Natalie reading, running, thrifting with friends, or visiting her family in Iowa.
Natalie is an absolute rock star! She’s everything you’d want in a realtor – responsive, detail oriented, easy to work with. Just a genuinely awesome person. We were buying in an extremely tough market for buyers, and we only got our dream house because Natalie went above and beyond with every little detail to make our offer as strong as possible. Plus she made the whole process enjoyable, from open houses through closing. I couldn’t possibly recommend her more highly. A+!
