Laura Schulte

Real Estate Consultant

After serving the St. Louis community for over 20 years in nonprofit work and education, Laura Schulte took a leap into real estate. She found her passion for the process of finding and purchasing a property when buying a B&B in Hermann, MO in 2020 that she now owns and operates. Laura joined the Wehnes Group team in February, 2022.

Her experiences all have in common that she was allowed to serve others, which she carries over with her into the real estate business. Laura is excited to continue her passion of service by helping others navigate the decisions made throughout the processes of buying and selling homes.

Our Values

Honesty & Transparency. Market Knowledge. Experiences. Family. Positive Impact. Service & Community.

We believe in delivering our clients outstanding experiences, and with that comes strong values. We know how important it is to have transparency throughout the buying and selling processes so that things can go as smoothly as possible and to eliminate any confusion. There are many moving parts in real estate, and it can be difficult to navigate. That's why we say we're on your team - to make the process understandable for you and your unique situation. We build your trust by communicating with honesty and providing you relevant market knowledge to give you the information you need to know. Ultimately, we want to make the experience as simple and enjoyable as possible, because after all you are starting a new chapter of your life, and that should be celebrated. We know these kinds of experiences are ones you and your family will take with you through your life's journey. We aim for you to remember it fondly, and for you to be able to say you and your family found the right fit. That is part of our hope of creating positive impacts. This goes beyond real estate too, as we hope to create positivity by supporting and even serving our local communities.

We are here for you, and promise that our clients always come first. We're on your team.
