The idea of A Red Circle began when our founder, Erica Williams, was researching St. Louis’ real estate history and discovered that the current racial tension in St. Louis is the result of past racist laws and public policies. She decided that a substantial investment into North County was necessary to provide equitable relief to the region.
A Red Circle was founded in March of 2017. Red, because all blood is red, and a circle to represent safety and unity.
