Property Owner Advocate Services

Saint Louis County annually contracts with several individuals who have experience in real estate to help residential property owners navigate the reassessment appeal process.

This program is part of an effort to make sure residents realize their rights, take best advantage of the process, and experience Saint Louis County’s customer friendly government attitude.

Please note: The Advocate program is only in session during the appeal season, which generally runs between May and August. For details please visit the Board of Equalization’s web page:
