Over twenty years ago Merrill and Paul Ottwein (managing broker) introduced a new kind of company to the Metro East real estate market hoping to challenge that conventional wisdom. Instead of dividing their loyalties between sellers and buyers the Ottwein’s would put all of their energy and experience into just one area…Assisting Buyers. The result was Home Buyers AdvantEdge Realty one of the most unique and respected real estate agencies in the metro east and today with over two decades of experience.
Since its founding in 1991 Home Buyers AdvantEdge Realty has helped over 3000 clients purchase homes in the most desirable locations in Southwestern Illinois. Their team has extensive experience assisting families moving to the Metro East area, including Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, St. Louis employees living on the east side of the river, and particular experience helping military families relocating to Scott Air Force Base. We take service to the men and women who serve in our military very seriously and pledge to make relocating their families to a new base as stress free as possible.
