Flourish Properties, LLC was founded by Lisa Mandel, a former professional photographer, for over 20 years, turned real estate agent.

Having previously run her own business for decades, Lisa understands working within a budget. Using her nearly 10 years of experience in the St. Louis real estate market,  she excels at finding the best property or properties for her clients.

After two years as a real estate agent, Lisa earned her broker’s license and has quadrupled her sales within the last three years.

Lisa is passionate about creating affordable housing and volunteers her time with the Equal Housing & Opportunity Council, teaching fair housing.

She serves on the St. Louis Metro Housing Task Force, the Landlord Advisory Group at St. Patrick’s Center and is an active member of the St. Louis Association of Realtors (SLAR).

" You're never too young to begin investing in real estate," Lisa says. "I believe that first-time home buyers should buy multi-family buildings, live in one unit and rent the others, taking care of the monthly mortgage and creating a stream of income."

In her free time, Lisa can frequently be found at home with her wife, drinking tea and lounging on the couch in front of a fire.

She enjoys cooking, traveling, and completing NYT crossword puzzles for fun.
