St. Louis, MO, May 05, 2018 --( Trophy Properties and Auction today announced the addition
of Eric Merchant as a sales agent to its expanding team. Eric is the newest real estate consultant to join
Trophy Properties and Auction but certainly is not new to real estate sales. He is a 27+ year real estate
veteran and has represented buyers and sellers for residential, commercial, industrial, farm and
recreational land transactions.

His expertise has earned him multiple honors and awards and he is currently ranked one of top real estate
agents in the St. Louis Metropolitan area and is consistently in the top 1% of realtors throughout the US.
With a reputation for creating successful outcomes for buyers and sellers alike, Merchant has been the top
selling agent for his previous office 22 out of the last 24 years.

“I met Eric more than 10 years ago when we co-brokered and sold a listing. Our paths have continued to
cross, and we have co-brokered many more listings, selling every single one,” said Jason Cleveland,
Broker/Partner for Trophy Properties and Auction. “Eric's drive and previous success will make him an
extraordinary addition to our company and we are thrilled to gain his experience and abilities as he joins
our strong team of professionals.”

Merchant and his team closed nearly $30 million in 2016, their best year to date, $20+ million in sales
during 2017, and as real estate markets heat up even more in 2018, they are on track to hit $50 million or

“This is the perfect time to merge our teams and take advantage of a great real estate market and
economy,” said Merchant. “We have so much in common - in the way we do business and the things we
enjoy like hunting, travel, a good glass of wine, and some great barbeque. The team at Trophy Properties
and Auction is honorable, decent, ethical, and honest. We're going to do some great things together!”

Merchant specializes in all facets of Real Estate including residential, farms, acreage, commercial, and
tax deferred exchanges but is especially excited about plans to open a new construction branch with
Trophy Properties and Auction.

“In addition to farm and land sales, we're going to offer construction so that buyers can experience the
rustic elegance, Western mountain cabin look of big timber frames and stone, wrap around porches, and
metal roofs,” said Merchant.

Merchant has always leveraged and relied on technology to help him reach sales goals. Starting with
mobile phone technology back in 1989 (he still has his first and same cell phone number - 314-541-1218),
he continues to seek out and leverage innovative ways to be more responsive to his clients. Like Trophy

or other rural / lifestyle property sets us apart from the competition.

“We always go back to the three, simple cornerstones of our foundation: show up, try not to screw up,
and put our clients before ourselves and good things will happen,” said Merchant. “We pride ourselves on
being straight forward, no pressure, and working together to provide outstanding service with attention to
every detail. Most of my clients are repeat business, which tells me I must be doing something right.”

Transaction Coordinator, Tammy Eigenman, Listing Advisor & Social Media Director, April Sweeso,
Sales Consultant, Steven Bish, Sales Consultant, and Dexter Keuss, Sales Consultant, have moved into
