Just a Little More about Us....
Marty and Kris Knobbe, who are both from the St. Louis area, share their passion for real estate and family. While they worked in separate but complimentary industries prior to forming the Knobbe Realty Partners, their combined vision was to always help others achieve home ownership. After having enjoyed a successful career in mortgage for 12 years, Marty Knobbe decided to apply his problem solving, sales and negotiating skills to the real estate industry in early 2015. Known for his charisma, problem solving skills and ability to build long lasting relationships, Marty earned a reputation as a client focused industry leader. As a former teacher, Kris Knobbe, entered the new homes sales industry in 2007 with the intent to help educate new construction buyers on the process. She received the Homebuilders Association Rookie of the Year in 2007 which was just the beginning of her successful career as a licensed realtor and new construction community sales manager. With her focus and dedication to others, Kris worked tirelessly to sell customized homes to families and grow communities.
Marty and Kris Knobbe blended their personal life with their work lives with the initiation of the Knobbe Realty Partners with BHHS Select Properties. Integrating over 12 years of their unique backgrounds, experiences, sharp skill sets and individualized talents, they created a systematized process that has proven to help buyers and sellers. With each sale, Marty and Kris successfully collaborate to provide the highest levels of personalized service, detailed market analysis, hands-on interactions, innovative media marketing and follow-up communications. They recognize the importance of exposing homes across a National market and the benefits of cross selling in multiple local markets – St. Louis, St. Charles County and Lake of the Ozarks.
When Marty (youngest of 6) and Kris (oldest of 3) are not focused on their real estate business, they spend time with their family in St. Louis and at the Lake of the Ozarks. When the married, they blended a family of four girls - Meagan, Emily, Mia and Sophia (twins). All four girls have unique interests in various hobbies and sports - soccer, dance sewing and art. But like the rest of their extended families, Marty, Kris and the girls all share a common interest in boating at the Lake of the Ozarks, Cardinal Baseball and Blues Hockey. The newest additions to the family are their son-in-law, Presley Becker, who is serves in the US Navy, and their granddaughter, Arya Becker.

“Shout Out to Knobbe Realty Partners and Lake Ozark Realty Partners. This team is one of the most professional and customer service focused teams that I have had the opportunity to work with. Marty and Kris represented me on the purchase of the lake home in December of 2018 and sale in October 2019.

“We had our lake home listed by a local realtor at the Lake of the Ozarks for over a year. We learned that there was a BHHS Select Properties team that sold in both markets - St. Louis and Lake of the Ozarks. We were impressed with their sales and marketing strategy so we asked them to list our lake home again - same list price. We didn't have to travel back and forth from the lake. Kris staged our home and Marty took care of a few details around the house before it went back on the market. Our lake house sold in 3 days with multiple offers. If you are looking for a team who knows both markets, we recommend Marty and Kris.”
“I was impressed with their strategy when I talked to them. I knew that they would get my home sold fast and they did.”

“Prior experience with them was great
Can't say enough about there great help
Our son passed away and Marty and Kris made this a great experience under a very difficult time for my family.”
“Marty and Kris were amazing to work with. I have never worked with agents that were so efficient and truly dedicated to service and getting the property sold. I am the Broker/Owner at BHHS Select Properties. We recently joined the Lake of the Ozarks Board which Marty and Kris joined as well. They are very knowledgeable of the Lake. I would recommend them again immediately if asked for a referral.”
“Marty and Kris were great to work with. We had a long home search due to no fault of theirs and they stuck with us through it all. They were available at the drop of a hat and stayed on top of the process the whole way. We'll definitely be back if we need to move again.”
“We looked at homes but we were also interested in new home construction. We did not know where to start. Kris was there from the beginning to walk us through every step. She helped us figure out which builder, lot, floor plan and options would best meet our needs and budget. She kept close communication with the community sales manager and builder throughout the entire process. When any challenge came up, she was quick to address if needed. She explained the builder terms and construction steps so we could follow everything. We highly recommend talking to Kris and Marty especially if you are considering building a new home!”
“I was referred to Marty Knobbe by my mortgage loan officer and it ended up being the best choice!! Kris and Marty were completely understand of my needs and made sure they stuck by me throughout the whole process. We had a moment where we hit a snag with the financing side (no fault of my own) and Marty spent time with my loan officer doing some critical thinking to work through it....and we did with flying colors! I will highly recommend Marty to anyone looking for an agent in the future. He was amazing!!!!
I had a great experience with Marty as my agent. We had some frustrations from the buyer's agent, but Marty persisted and did his best to keep my stress level at a minimum. I don't want to have to buy again for a very long time, LOL, but if I do...I am calling Marty (if he'll have me hahaha)!!”
“Very impressed with the whole selling/buying experience with Marty. I will definitely recommend him as well as use him again, if needed, as my agent on both sides of the experience
Kristine Knobbe went above & beyong on all aspects of marketing & keeping in contact with me.”
“Fantastic result driven realtors!! Sold not 1 but 2 homes for me and my fiancée in less then a week with multiple offers for each house! Give Marty and Kris a call and start your new home dream!!
“Marty exceed all of my expectations! I called Marty after watching an agent fumble around selling one of two homes I was putting on the market. My previous agent listed the home for 45 days and only got 3 people in the door to view it. In my first meeting with Marty he came prepared with a full blown marketing plan. I was a little skeptical, but the proof is in his details. He SOLD both properties in one weekend with multiple offers on both getting above asking price!!!!! If you’re looking for an agent give Marty a call and let him take the stress out of selling your home.”
“Marty was awesome in helping us find our dream home. He knows the market and help you navigate the home buying process. Do yourself a favor and let Marty help you find your dream home!!!”
“Great people! Great service! Call Kris and Marty!”
“Marty was available to answer any of my questions or concerns throughout this process. Selling a home can be overwhelming; however, Marty made this as easy as possible for me by making phone calls, appointments, and even helping with repairs needed to sell. Marty went above and beyond to help me get what I wanted for the sale of my home and for that I strongly recommend Marty Knobbe to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home!”
“We'll miss working with Marty. I would recommend him to any potential seller, or buyer whose in the market for a home. our experience from great from start to finish.
The closing process was easier than anticipated. Thanks for everything.”
“Marty went above and beyond on every expectation we had for an agent in our new home build. He completely stepped in at the busiest time of our lives (our wedding!) to make sure our new home was properly completed to our satisfaction... knowing exactly what we wanted. Marty completed everything we asked of him and then some! He never complained nor showed any frustration with us; as I'm sure there were those moments. :-) He maintained professionalism throughout the entire process; he was our agent for over 7 months (sold 2 homes, built 1). I never thought twice about our choice to use Marty and would use him again in a heart beat (but hopefully it's not until like 10 years from now, no more moving for awhile :-)).”
“Marty Knobbe was extremely pleasant to work with! I trusted him fully with our home and he was always available to talk to about any questions I had... and I had many! He patiently answered and listened to any questions or concerned I had and made me feel confident in our decisions we made. Marty constantly reassured us and we look forward to working with him again in the near future to find the home we will make together as newly weds!”
“Marty was a dream come true to deal with. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. He was alway available when needed (even at very odd hours)and we felt he truly had our best interests in mind. He never pressured us or tried to steer us to something outside of what we communicated was important. His honesty, patience, and easy-going personality were valued and appreciated greatly. We looked at many houses and Marty never hesitated to be available when we were. We also dealt with many issues on the loan side, but Marty went above and beyond to help us in anyway in that area as well. If anyone is looking for a truly awesome realtor he is your guy. He is an absolute asset to Berkshire!”
“My property was handled excellent by Marty. I spoke with several local agents I know before choosing who to work with and I'm extremely happy I went with Marty. I had a few lingering issues (to say the least) and Marty not only took those on 'head on' plus his communication and honestly was very appreciated. Marty was also very pleasant and understanding of my schedule.”
“My husband and I had a great experience working with Marty Knobbe. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and helped our home sell within one day of going on the market. He was always extremely patient and accommodating to our needs and schedules, and he made us feel like were his top priority. Even though we have since closed on our old home and our new home, Marty has continued to help us with issues that have arisen and answered any questions that we have had. We would definitely work with Marty again in the future and will recommend him to anyone needing a realtor in the. He was also great with our toddler and our dog who frequently had to accompany us on showings! Thanks to Marty, the home selling and buying process went as smoothly as it possibly could.”
“Kourtney Kapfer is great! I hadn't met her previously to buying a home, but I'm so glad she was my realtor. She was on the ball, kind, and had a lot of helpful knowledge. I would recommend her to anyone.”
“Kourtney Kapfer took the time to put together a sales plan and executed it perfectly even during the COVID-19 epidemic. She stuck to her plan and rejected low ball offers getting me top dollar for my property. It actually sold for more than any other house on my street ever had. Her personality and seller friendly attitude makes her a pleasure to work with. I’d highly recommend using her to any of my family or friends.”
“I was a first time home buyer and had no idea what I was doing. Kourtney walked me through the process. She knew exactly what to do and made the process easy for us. She’s an amazing realtor and would recommend her to a friend.”
“Did a great job, sold 3 properties in 8 weeks, got price I asked.”
“She was real there to make sure I was confident in my buying preference!
A great realtor agent to use! Thanks”
We appreciate everything you've done for us throughout this sale process! Although there were things that were out of everyone's control you always went to bat and put in the extra hours to get the house sold. We cant thank you enough. You are a amazing realtor and I know you will have great success in the future. Hope to see you soon!”
“I just like working with her, will use her again and again. Thanks for sticking with quality on a company level and with the agents you have working with you,,,,,”
“Kourtney Kapfer is very outgoing easy to talk to. She worked hard to get what we were asking for in the sale price of my property. Everyone at the office for closing was great to work with. Would recommend Kourtney Kapfer and Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Select Properties.”
