Sugar Loaf Mound in Saint Louis was sold to it's new owners on August 1, 2009. The Osage Nation Tribe has purchased the property for the purpose of historical preservation and possibly a cultural center. It was always the wish of the previous owners to pass this property on to someone that was interested in its preservation. The buyers and sellers were very cooperative with one another and sailed towards a smooth closing to benefit all. The mound sold for $235,000.

Famed Saint Louis blogger Steve Patterson decided to toss in his thoughts on the mound http://www.urbanreviewstl.com/?p=4359. Steve is my co-agent on another historic property, South Side Tower. I have no idea how I fell into the niche of listing properties that are on the National Register for Historic Places, but I love it! South Side Tower is the art deco gem once known as the South Side National Bank Building at Grand and Gravois.
The old building has been turned into 13 luxury condos by The Lawrence Group. There are only 5 remaining units in the building. I believe that this building has some of the most unique and spectacular views of Saint Louis City.

For the fist time Circa is offering a "First Time Homebuyer Seminar" scheduled for January. Educating people about the process is what we love to do. We are not trying to "sell" anything to you. If you have been thinking about buying a house, but you aren't quite ready to sit down with a lender and real estate agent yet...Then this is perfect for you! There will be a brief overview of the entire process, you will be introduced to the key players, what a lender is looking for, and tips and tricks for a successful purchase.Two dates are available January 17 & 24 from 12-2 pm. You have been hearing that now is the time to buy. Now, come out and find out what it takes to get there. Home prices are low, and so are rates. Start the New Year off right and become a homeowner!
You can also RSVP by emailing me at Lmaibes@gmail.com please include name, how many people are attending, which day, and a contact number so we can call with a reminder!

I have been debating another open house at the mound house. The last open house was such a huge success. We had nearly 150 people in attendance. Part of the reason that I had the open house was to encourage curiosity seekers to come view the mound when someone was at the property. Recently, I have had to put up "No Trespassing" signs to discourage people from entering the property when a real estate agent was not present. I would love for people to be able to view the mound...That being said, I think I am going to have another open house. I am going to wait until tomorrow to view the weather report for the weekend. If it is nice I will schedule one. Keep posted!
