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 safe and relatively quiet suburb of St. Louis. It is located only a short 10 minute drive from downtown St. Louis City and no more than 20 minute drive from nearly every other surrounding county. There are multiple annual events and parades that bring neighbors together to celebrate.
