Brentwood is the St. Louis area’s best kept secret. It’s a wonderful, walkable, very friendly neighborly, and accessible with top-notch schools with high scores and small class sizes. Real estate is hot for all stages of life - young families, professionals, retirees. And you can get to the best St. Louis has to offer in 10-15 minutes. Our family is so happy here.

I love the people around my neighborhood! It is perfect for my active lifestyle because of all of the sidewalks around. It is very safe for walking or running with my dog outside. The neighborhoods are clean with no visible trash. I love it!
Brentwood is a great town. Right on the edge of the city, you get the best of both worlds. Plenty of parks and trails for people with kids and pets. Not always a ton to do in Brentwood, but it is so close to areas such as Clayton and Maplewood where there are a lot of events that take place.
