Michael sees his role as a real estate agent professional as one which provides clients with the most accurate and honest assessment of a given property and how the information relates to the current market conditions for a particular area. This allows the client to have the knowledge and confidence needed in order to make the best possible decision for their family.

When it comes time to buy or sell your next property, Michael is prepared to put his five plus years of experience to work for you in order to deliver exceptional service in helping you negotiate the best possible deal.


Michael, a true Southerner, was born and raised in Mississippi where he developed a passion for the outdoors at an early age. Growing up in and around farming, he has a true appreciation for land ownership and the management practices needed to have a fruitful property.

Michael has worked with Trophy Properties and Auction since 2014 as a licensed real estate professional dedicated to helping clients meet and exceed their goals in the real estate marketplace. Mr. Wardlaw is a graduate of Mississippi State University with a B.A. in Marketing. His degree, coupled with real world experiences as a golf professional, sports journalist, advertising consultant, entrepreneur, and property owner gives him a unique advantage when it comes to marketing your property.


As for Michael’s connection to the Midwest, it stems from his loving wife, Dr. Jennifer (Demko) Wardlaw, a native of St. Louis. Together, they enjoy sharing all of the Midwest has to offer with their two children, Lillian, and Trey. When they aren’t watching a Cardinals game or coaching little league games, you’ll find the family lakeside on their farm in Pike County, Missouri with their dogs, bloodhound Delta, and French bulldog Roux.

Michael was a true professional from start to finish. Our search process lasted nearly 6 month because my brother and I were very particular as to the type and location of the property. Michael showed us a number of properties and offered his expert opinions on location, characteristics and comparable values. The lines of communication were wide open with plenty of emails and phone calls throughout the process. Michael was always on time and prompt with correspondence. He was very attentive when dealing with selling agents. It was also nice that he attended our closing. We will be referring Michael when we can to anyone who is looking for that perfect property

When we started this process I felt like we would never find a property that met our expectations, based on the original property we were considering. Now we can't believe how fortunate we our that we didn't purchase a property before we contacted Michael Wardlaw. Michael has been an outstanding resource during and after our property acquisition. I highly recommend before you make your land investment you contact Michael Wardlaw and the Trophy Properties team in Ballwin, Missouri.

When we were searching for a company to represent our home we of course wanted a top company. I did a lot and I do mean a lot of research and chose Trophy Properties and I must say Michael is a bright penny in a pile of dull spent copper ones! He really stands out. His appraisal of our property was spot on. Of course you know we wanted to move it fast. When Michael says he understands what you are talking about he really does. He went the extra mile and miles more. So, congratulations on being lucky enough to have him on the Trophy Properties team. I also wish that every Missouri customer would be fortunate enough to have him in their corner. In other words. I highly recommend him.
