Annie Faulstich, Broker/Owner

Broker/Owner, Lakefront Living Realty Missouri, Realtor®

Annie's success as a real estate broker is a byproduct of her passion for two things: An abiding love of Lake life and her penchant for cultivating lifelong relationships.

“To be able to find the perfect property for my clients and knowing that they can't wait to get inside it to truly make it their home is the best part of my job,” Annie says. “When you've helped someone find the vacation home they've always dreamed of, for example, and you see that look of eager anticipation on their faces, it is tremendously gratifying.”

Growing up at the Lake not only gave Annie a love for the Lake lifestyle, it gives her unique insight into the real estate market in the area. As the daughter of a general contractor, she grew up around development and the construction industry, which fueled in her a love for both. But it took her heading away to college and moving around the country to truly appreciate the Lake of the Ozarks. Now that she's home again, Annie and her husband, who also is a native of Osage Beach, feel fortunate to be able to raise their family in this unique community.

Annie’s background in construction led her to begin building new construction homes, buying properties, rehabilitating or redesigning them, and then selling them. From being a buyer and seller herself, a career in real estate was an easy transition. But what has made her career so successful is Annie's ability to develop friendships with people from every walk of life.

“I just generally really like people, and this job gives me so many opportunities to build lasting relationships,” she says. “Growing up here, with so many fond memories, it's a big part of my heritage. I love being able to connect people to this Lake life that I get to enjoy every day. The relationships this job allows me to build really feel more like family than professional or business relationships.”

Annie was taught from a young age that honesty, integrity and hard work are the keys to any successful business. Those core values, her lake heritage, and the experience of proven results enable her to provide the very best service for each of her clients, many of whom she now calls friends.

Jesse Faulstich, Realtor®

Lakefront Specialist

Jesse grew up on the Lake of the Ozarks. By the time he was 11, he was already getting his feet wet in the contracting side of real estate, spending his summer breaks helping with the family business, Controlled Heating and Cooling.

He graduated from Camdenton High School in 1999, and he bought his first house seven years later. After making some finishing improvements, he sold the house in 2008. He then tackled his first new construction home.

In 2011, Jesse reconnected with Annie, whom he knew growing up in Osage Beach and through high school. They were married in 2014. Since then, he and Annie have remodeled and flipped two other homes before buying their lakefront home on Imperial Point Drive, where they reside with their two children, Garrett and Farrah.

Through his experience as a contractor at the Lake, Jesse has cultivated great relationships with various companies, suppliers, contractors and governmental bodies. That experience ensures he can assist lakefront buyers and sellers with navigating the difficult issues that can arise sometimes in real estate transactions. He has a passion for the people and the lifestyle of the Lake of the Ozarks. He also has kept abreast of the local housing market since purchasing his first home in 2006.

As a lifelong resident of the Lake and a current lakefront resident, Jesse wants to share his love of the Lake with others. He looks forward to helping buyers and sellers make their lake home dreams a reality.

Haley Glover, Realtor®

Lakefront Specialist

Haley grew up in southeast Kansas, where she spent much of her early years enjoying the outdoors with family and friends. They camped, fished, boated and skied on the shores of the Neosho River or one of the numerous Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri lakes. Eventually Haley settled down in the Kansas City area with her husband, Jason, and they continued that tradition with their own family.

After years of storing, hauling, packing and unpacking a camper, they decided to trade it all in for their first vacation lake house in 2014 at Lake of the Ozarks. Two years later they jumped into full-time lake living. “We just couldn’t get enough,” she said. “It became more and more difficult to leave the lake at the end of the weekend. Now we don’t have to, and we couldn’t be happier with the decision we made.”

When her family moved to the Lake full-time, Haley’s eldest son had just moved to college. But her and Jason’s two younger children were in grade school and middle school. She couldn’t help but wonder how her children would transition from a much larger school in the city to a school district in a small Lake of the Ozarks community. She need not have worried.

“Our children are happier and more well-adjusted than we ever thought possible here at the lake,” she said. “Every day feels like a vacation, and we are so happy that our children will have these experiences and memories to share with their own families when they are older.”

Inspired by her own experience, Haley now loves to help others realize their own dreams of living the lake lifestyle.

“I am committed to giving my clients the best customer service experience possible with understanding, patience and knowledge of lakefront real estate and everything that comes along with it,” she said.

Mike Kircher, Realtor®

Lakefront Specialist ‐ Lake of the Ozarks NorthView Homes

Mike grew up in Eureka, Missouri. He spent his youth visiting many of Missouri’s lakes and rivers. He has a lot of fond memories of family vacations spent at family resorts or campgrounds. In the early 1980s, his parents bought a home on the north shore in Lick Branch Cove. It was at this home where Mike and his family created many lifetime memories.

“I raised my daughters coming to the lake. I believe it was these trips that bonded us together as a family. That special bond still exists today.”

Mike first fell in love with Lake of the Ozarks in 1977. “I can still remember the first time I drove over the Grand Glaize Bridge. It was love at first sight.” He has been boating at the lake ever since.

Mike feels that Lake of the Ozarks is a very special place, with no comparable place in the United States, maybe the world. The combination of great boating, great fishing, lake front restaurants, amazing parks, and off water attractions make the lake area a great place for everyone.

In July of 2016, Mike finally had the opportunity to move to Lake of the Ozarks full time. He resides at Isla Del Sol on the north shore. With almost 40 years of boating experience on the Gravois arm and the north shore, Mike has extensive knowledge of the area. “The north shore is a unique area, more laid back and maybe a slower pace than other areas of the lake.”

Mike is also a US Coast Guard licensed Captain and performs a lot of boat charters. Mike feels this extensive boating experience gives him a unique qualification for helping you find your ideal lake home.

“I am looking forward to helping others realize their Lake of the Ozarks dream. My boating experience and knowledge of the north shore makes me uniquely qualified to help you find the right lake front home for you and your family.”
