Mrs. Thessen joined Hilliker Corporation shortly after graduating, with honors, from Westminster College in 2014. There, she was an active leader in the Greek community and multiple student organizations. She was also chosen for marketing-focused internships at Edward Jones and H&R Block, among others.
Thessen closes deals on all kinds of properties with a variety of clients but focuses on St. Louis-area office real estate throughout Clayton, the West End, and West County. She also speaks Mandarin and Cantonese fluently, strengthening Hilliker’s service to the Chinese-American community.
Recently, she was able to broker an office lease with a local law firm that involved 35,000 square feet in a Class-A Clayton building over ten years.
Three guiding principles drive Rebecca in serving her clients:
- Determination, working hard to make sure every deal has the best possible outcome.
- Pleasure, valuing the joy a great real estate deal brings into her clients’ lives.
- Success, building relationships with her clients to help them achieve their dreams.
Thessen is a member of CREW (the Commercial Real Estate Women’s Network), AACC (Asian-American Chamber of Commerce), and St. Louis Association of Realtors. She served as chapter president for Business Network International (BNI) from 2015-2017.
She also has a passion for the rights of animals, volunteering with the APA of Missouri.
