Property Owner Advocate Program


Property Owner Advocates are real estate professionals who contract with St. Louis County during the property value appeal season to help residential property owners understand and navigate the appeal process. The advocate program is offered free of charge to residential property owners in St. Louis County during the appeal season (May through August). 

Unfortunately, the advocate program will not be available in 2020, but is expected to be return in 2021, the next reassessment year.
