I am an advocate.
I love to solve problems. I covet the role of champion, advisor, cheerleader. My values, passion, and work ethic are rooted in my family and my faith. I like getting people excited about things I’m excited about—whether it’s a family passion, our beloved sports teams, or my favorite iced tea (with crushed ice) from QT.
I loved my years-long adventure in the San Francisco Bay Area and technology sector, but my sun shines brightest in my home state of Missouri where I’m close to family. In touch with hometown and Mizzou friends. Living among people who call me by first name at the grocery store. My jobs gave me the chance to travel the world, elevate small brands, and develop life-changing campaigns. I have communication, marketing, and event planning experience with clients from varied industries and sectors: non-profits, start-ups, established local brands, global family foundations, and Fortune 50 companies. In 2011, I was honored to be one of Ingram Magazine’s Forty Under 40. A few years ago, a breast cancer diagnosis forced a hiatus from full-time work—that journey taught me most about life and gratitude. Collectively, those experiences gave me skills I use daily in real estate negotiations, educating homebuyers and sellers, working with partners, and effectively marketing our team’s listings.
I’ll never claim to be the world’s best mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend, or survivor… but I work hardest at relationships. I’m madly in love with my husband, Mike, my two daughters, and my “bonus” kids. (And sometimes, our ornery dogs.) I strive to make sure those I adore know it—including our REsource partners and clients. That could be why I love this real estate gig. At its core, this business is all about the connections you create.
"OUTSTANDING! From start to finish - that is the one word that describes our home sale experience with Traci Bertz. She guided us through the prep work we needed to tackle before listing, held our hands through the emotional process of putting a sign in the yard and guided us through every step of each offer. It was a seamless and, honestly, enjoyable process. I would trust Traci and her team with all of our future sales and purchases. No question!"
"Buying and selling a home STRESSES me out in ways nothing else does. Working with Traci and Todd and the team of experts they had getting me listed and sold and into my new home took a normally frenetic experience and turned it into a profitable one. I’m also happy to say, for the first time, it was a painless Experience. I couldn’t have been happier with the process, the handholding and my new home. Thank You!"
"REsource Homes were knowledgeable, friendly, and very responsive. Angie made our first home buying process a breeze. It was amazing work. And we got a perfect house! Thank you so much."
"The extra effort Traci took over the multiple calls and showings, asking questions and listening, all the while not trying to persuade us really paid off. If it wasn’t for this, an opportunity would have been missed. We now have been residents in Staley Farms since July 2, 2020 and we owe a lot of gratitude to Traci for being patient, responsive, but most of all caring in our families move into our new home."

"REsource Homes proved to be a friendly and professional organization. From when I signed to have Angie help me buy my future home, to marketing my current home, to the closing date, she kept me informed and advised me on the best course of action. Her skills allowed me to sell my home at over asking price, yet buy for 10% UNDER asking. I could not be happier with the results that REsource got me."
