Don Meyer founded our company in 1959 with an office on Main Street in St Charles. He used a box as a desk for a few months before his aunt took pity on him and bought him a proper desk. From this humble beginning he grew the company and added many sales people including his father and brother. In the 1970’s and 80’s he was responsible for many farm sales in the area as the once very rural farm community of St Charles County began to suburbanize. As the interest rates began to climb above 15% (variable), a rental department was started to help those owners who wanted to move but were unable to sell. In the 1990’s Meyer Real Estate was one of the pioneers on the internet with a website as early as 1995. The 1990’s also saw the beginning of the company’s history of buying foreclosed upon homes, repairing them, and offering them for resale. This practice continues today, and we are very proud of the three divisions of the business that allow us serve the greater community: Our rental department, our real estate sales department, and purchasing and reselling distressed homes. Throughout the years our company has been operating in the industry, we have seen the contracts go from 2 pages to 9, the beginning of buyer’s agency, the start of building inspections, and even utilization of cell phones and computers. With all we have gained in efficiency, there are concepts lost that will come back again. Lease purchases, assumption of loans, and contract for deed are no longer talked about, but at least one company still has the experience to do things differently, if needed. It is true that it is possible, even probable, that our company has sold your home at least once before, and we will be happy to assist you in doing it again. Let us show you the difference in using a company with strong roots in the community!
