I am: Driven, focused, energetic and adventurous
What I do for fun: I love traveling, camping, hiking, exploring national parks and nature in general. I got quite a few national parks under the belt. I ski in the winter and golf a lot in the summer. I enjoy my coffee black with walks in the forest park or at local coffee shops. I like working out and staying mentally and physically fit. I thoroughly enjoy intellectual conversations, learning, spending time with my family and cooking (I spent some time at culinary school). Sunday nights are usually reserved for relaxation with a good book or a movie.
Perfect Day: 60 degree weather, early morning 6 AM workout, head start on work with music in the background, closings throughout the day, a lot of assistance to my clients and being in front of them.
Super Hero Power: To time travel
Favorite St Louis Neighborhood: Central West End
Favorite weekend spot: I love me some McGurks for some Guinness and Irish music. Olive & Oak or Westborough Country Club are go to spots for dinner.
About me: I attended Missouri University of Science & Technology and studied Computer Science prior to working in the consulting world. Getting into real estate for me was a game changer. I love real estate and helping my clients realize their dreams come true. I find it very rewarding. When I started NextDoor Realty, without a second thought, I knew right away that we want to be a very St. Louis organization that gives the next door neighbor feeling, care and attention to our clients. Also, an organization that gives and invests back in the community of St. Louis. My team and I are really excited to work with you and make a difference here.

About Me: I was born and raised in the St.Louis area and have spent most of my life living in this area besides the time I spent living in Southern California. I graduated with a degree in Theology from Atlanta Bible College and have spent time as an associate pastor at a local church. Prior to becoming a real estate agent, I spent many years in various management positions at restaurants. I started out with my Illinois Real Estate License and then moved on to acquire my Missouri License as well. What sets me (and others at NextDoor Realty) apart is that I don't view my career as a salesman. My goal is not to sell you on a house, but to provide opportunities to connect you with the house that fits your wants and needs and then be your guide and trusted professional through the process.
My Perfect Day: Waking up on a sunny summer day with my little 2 year old, making breakfast, and playing around the pool in the afternoon. We would grill some food and enjoy the outdoors.
Favorite Restaurant: Pizzeoli in Soulard. Hands down the best pizza I've ever I had.
Superhero Power: Teleportation. I would love to live in the STL area, but be able to go to the beach for an hour or two everyday.
There is nothing I love more than seeing the excitement on the faces of my clients as they get an amazing home for a price they didn't think was possible while selling their home quickly and for the right price. In addition to that, knowing that 7% of what we bring in as a company goes to improving the community is extremely important to me.

About Me: I was born and raised in southern Illinois, and I went to SIUE majoring in Speech Communication. I like that I was raised a small town girl, but LOVE that I have been part of the city for the past several years. Having grown up in a town with less than 15k people, I have such a passion for the "big city" and all that St. Louis has to offer. I have lived in the Loop, Dogtown, Tower Grove, Chesterfield, Maryland Heights, and St. Charles. I have a background in property management and school administration, and I enjoy helping people. I am a perfectionist for finding exactly what you want/need. I have always had a passion for real estate and spend hours a week looking at properties for sale all over the country. This also lets me see all the different styles and décor so that I can feed another passion of mine - decorating! My friends and family always ask my advice on decorating I am happy to help. This keeps my mind fresh with designs, colors, new styles, etc.
Favorite STL neighborhood: Dogtown
Favorite Restaurant: Mi Ranchito
Hobbies: Singing and playing guitar. I love all things tacos and margaritas. I take pleasure in traveling I am always on the go. I enjoy Sunday's where I can enjoy a nice brunch and take in a Cardinal's game.

Sales Associate

Dana@NextDoorSTL.com

I am: Dedicated, hard working and passionate, especially about architecture and design. I am a native St. Louisan, deeply rooted in the community.

Proudest moment: Getting our occupancy permit on our first home that we gutted and remodeled, whew!

Super hero power: To be able to fluently speak and understand all of the languages spoken in the world, to effectively communicate with everyone without barriers.

My pet: An Australian Shepherd named Lou. AKA, best dog ever.

I have lived in St. Louis for much of my life, and my family has been here for six generations. I am the descendant of farmers that owned a 100+ acre farm adjacent to Grant’s farm in the South St. Louis area. I have pictures of the homestead and my ancestors that I bring out every Day of the Dead to merge the traditions of my husband’s Guatemalan ancestry and my own St. Louis heritage.

Although my roots here run deep, I have lived in other parts of the country and the world, and I love to travel and learn about other people, places and cultures. I try to incorporate that appreciation for different perspectives into every part of my daily professional life.

My education includes a BA from Truman University, a Nursing degree from Goldfard School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish and an International MBA from SNHU. I am also a nurse and an amateur general contractor, having remodeled multiple homes in the St. Louis area and a midcentury A-frame on the Meramec.

My husband and I have six beautiful children and our favorite family activity is to spend time on the Missouri rivers; swimming, kayaking, fishing or just relaxing in nature. Summer is our favorite season, but we enjoy living in a place where the weather changes. I love that each season in Missouri has its own treasures, like sledding at Art Hill, or an autumn bonfire.

My favorite places and pastimes in St. Louis are too many to count, but some special haunts include Treasure Aisles for antiquing, El Torito on Cherokee for a Michelada (or a new pair of cowboy boots) Novel Neighbor (also my literal neighbor) in Webster Groves for books or small gifts, and Tower Grove Park for a magical midsummer night stroll.

If you are new to St. Louis, welcome! I hope you grow to love it as much as I do, and am honored to help you find your home here. If you already live here and are just looking for your forever spot, I hope to be able to help you maximize the value of your current property and find the perfect fit for a lifetime of memories.

I am: Adventurous, driven and pragmatic.
About me: Being a transplant originally from Michigan, I have enjoyed St. Louis; whether it is seeing the sites, trying a variety of foods or exploring the vast neighborhoods. “St. Louis is a major U.S city but with town-like charm.” I have been here for almost a decade now, I met my wife here and I remain invested in the city and metropolitan area development. My passion for real estate has been cultivated through long conversations with family members, friends and co-workers. Searching for the perfect home can be at times daunting and maybe a little frustrating. But there is something about walking into a place and saying “This is it”, you have solved the problem! I’ve been a professional problem-solver for 12 years now (also known as an engineer), my focus is to use my skills to improve your experience with real estate.
Hobbies: Tennis, Golf, Snowboard and Travel
Passions: Real Estate and Finance
Favorite Restaurants: Tree House Restaurant and Lulu’s Local Eatery

As a real estate professional, I recognize and value the trust my clients place in me; and I take great pride in serving my clients and exceeding their expectations. My career as a Realtor and Broker started in the Metro Atlanta market where I’ve received the Top Producer award and the distinction of top 3 producers within my brokerage. I enjoy working with buyers and sellers and look for ways to help families achieve their goal of home ownership. In 2018 I received the Short Sales and Foreclosures designation in an effort to help people navigate through difficult housing situations. I strive to provide open and continuous communication to help make each experience seamless; so clients can walk into their new home with the utmost confidence in their real estate transaction.

I am: Positive, Creative, and Fun. Born and raised in St. Louis.
Proudest Moment: Selling my Webster Groves 2-family investment property to spend more time with family
Super Hero Power: To fly
Favorite St Louis Neighborhood: Webster Groves
My pet: Is a golden doodle named Bella, a cat name Meg and a Guinea Pig names Sugar
Born and raised in Saint Louis, I love the city and the county. I went to Nerinx Hall High School and graduated from University of Missouri Saint Louis. After studying behavior psychology and working as a behavior consultant for children on the Autism spectrum my career took a turn as I was called into full time ministry at The Journey Tower Grove. I was married in 2005 to a man that has shaped my heart and mind to see the world better then I could have on my own and we had three beautiful children, one of whom has been diagnosed with Autism, funny how things have come full circle.
I desire to see people settle happily into their own Saint Louis dream house and community. I long to see our city engaging in true community and fun together.
My favorite new shop is the Annex in Webster Groves. The fresh croissants, Scottish short breads, and deli in just a 5 min walk is the perfect spot to get lunch, coffee or a drink with friends. Kelly, the owner is usually around to tell you about the imported favorites.
I can't wait to help you locate the house of your dreams in the neighborhood of your dreams!

I am: The middle child of 6 and born and raised in St. Louis, MO. I started college at St. Louis University on scholarship as a history major but changed to biology before applying to dental school. I currently am a dentist/owner of The W Dental Group and Trilogy, both located in Florissant, MO and also a Realtor at NextDoor Realty in St. Louis. My passion for real estate has been a long kept desire that has laid dormant while I've been pursuing other endeavors. I have always loved going to open houses, admiring various forms of architect and learning about the building process. Currently being in the profession of helping people through transforming smiles, I thought how could I help people through transforming houses and real estate in general, to help people feel truly at home wherever they come to live.
