About Me

Richard Crabtree             Realtor

When I moved to Springfield in 1997 I fell in love with older homes in the Springfield area, they reminded me of the neighborhoods I grew up around in St. Louis Area. Since we have been married, my wife & I have owned 7 homes ranging in age from 1922 – 2000’s.  We are currently restoring our fifth home in Rountree area, a 1922 Airplane Bungalow.

The neighbors in these older neighborhoods know I have a deep passion and love for the homes and their history. Ever since 2007 I have been doing extensive historical research on our homes and neighborhoods in Springfield. I joined Murney Associates in 2009 so I could utilize my past sales experience, my passion for history, and knowledge of restoring historic homes to help my clients develop a winning strategy to achieve their goal of buying or selling a home. I will work with you from the beginning to end; you will not be turned over to another person on team and never hear or see them again. I will be with you from the beginning to the end the sale and afterwards.  When you need answers and or need help, I will always be there for you.  I have already helped hundreds of people buy and sell their homes old and new, I would love the opportunity to earn your business!

Why the Blog???

I have aways strived to be a resource for all of my clients.  From time to time I find myself being asked the same information over and over.  This Blog gives me the opportunity to share many of their request with you. So I be blogging on the Springfield market, negiborhoods, banking, repairs, maintenance, restoration and history.  I hope you enjoy and comment on the blog and more importantly, I look forward to possibly be working with you in the future.
