About Me

I help families and individuals navigate the Real Estate process gracefully and with fun, play and ease.  I guide my clients through the experience so that they can clearly see the way.  I help them to identify and realize their dreams and goals without the frustration and waste of time that often occurs when buying and selling real estate.  I use a process that eliminates the mystery and guesswork. My clients are then left with more time, energy and emotional vitality to do the things that matter the most to them. 

 

I have relocated and moved many times both cross country and locally and I know the process well.  My process is streamlined and stress-free keeping everyone organized and calm while working swiftly and deftly with the goal of achieving the best results every time. I am tireless in my approach and I dedicate my work to my satisfied customers!

Personal

I enjoy a good challenge and collaborating with my clients and my colleagues to arrive at the best solution for every project at hand.  I have lived all over the US and grew up with my eight siblings, parents, and a sheepdog in Frontenac.  Ask me about my former homes as I have lived in California, Virginia, Kansas City, Chicago and Connecticut before returning to be with family in St. Louis. 

Currently I am a happy Kirkwood resident, with my Coton de Tulear, “Cody” …the cutest dog in the world!  When I am not listing or selling beautiful homes you can find me enjoying art, music, photography, meditation and entertaining.  I never stop learning and love to take classes in communication and personal and professional growth & development.  Learning to thrive in an ever-changing world is very important to me. 

What My Clients Say...

We've worked with Quita for the past year and we cannot say enough great things about her!  She's very knowledgeable about the market, extremely patient and passionate with each showing, and always accommodating to our schedules.  We enjoy anytime spent with!  We've moved 9 times and by far she's our favorite to work with!  September 2023

 My wife and I recently purchased our first home with the help of your wonderful agent, Marquita Auffenberg, and we couldn’t be happier with our experience!  Quita was always looking out for our best interest and was virtually always available, whether it was to show us a home or just talk us through the next step in the process.  Her knowledge and experience helped us tremendously, while her kindness and patience made what could have been a stressful experience and enjoyable one.  Even our dogs got to meet for a playdate when she brought us a housewarming gift.  What more could you want in an agent?  January 2023

I was happy with the service Marquita provided by answering questions or finding out information for me.  Each time I found a house to tour she was always there and always notified me if she was running late or arrived.  She was helpful during the negotiations to push for what was a fair deal and maximized my benefits without trying to sound out of bounds.  Even with her having to take some time off for surgery, she made sure someone was there to cover for her and was still making sure everything was progressing forward.  When it came to paperwork, I was always a bit confused by things, but she would make sure to go over anything to clear things up or try to reword it for a better understanding.  Thanks to Marquita and her efforts I found a suitable house that met my current needs and was able to become a new homeowner.  March 2022

Quita has the qualities that make her an extremely successful and effective realtor.  She has high integrity and is very conscientious and tenacious, always keeping the client’s best interests in mind.  Quita does a wonderful job of listening to her client’s needs and does not waste time showing properties which do not meet the client’s objectives.  She does research to assist with assessing a fair market value of the property for the offer and then negotiates effectively with the opposing agent on behalf of the client.  I have the highest level of confidence in her and feel she would be able to accurately assess any situation and figure out an effective solution.  In future transactions, I would love to have Quita represent me once again!  February 2022
