About Lance

A Buyer’s Specialist on The Dawn Griffin Team, Lance is a former business owner and entrepreneur. He loves the house hunt and finding great deals for his clients. As a buyers agent, he likes to tell clients that they are likely to see his footprints in the dust of whatever new house they look at because he tries to get into new listings as soon as possible. Here are some examples of how his Footprints in the Dust Strategy paid off for clients and here are some real-world examples of great deals we negotiated for some of our recent buyers.

Born and raised in the area, Lance lives in the Shaw neighborhood. He’s enthusiastic, driven, self-taught, and a true critical thinker who thoroughly researches new endeavors. He holds his family and friends near and dear and is a proud cancer survivor—no obstacle is too much for this guy to overcome! He’ll talk to you all day long about his pit bull Otis and don’t even get him started on the St. Louis Cardinals.

Always on the hunt for new challenges and adventures, Lance is eager to explore the neighborhoods of St. Louis with you, helping you discover and land your dream home.
