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, watching Cardinals 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. Gamlin Whiskey House and Sub Zero are other two usual spots in CWE.
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.

I am: Passionate, driven, tenacious, compassionate, fun and cheerful
Proudest moment: The birth of my son
Perfect day: Warm, sunny day smelling the salty ocean air while soaking up Vitamin D
Superhero power: Time traveler with an invisibility cloak
Favorite St. Louis neighborhood: I love so many that I can’t just pick one!
My pet: Our sweet St. Louie was a rescue pup but was the one who rescued us.
Favorite weekend spot: Believe it or not, we love spending our time at home doing projects when we’re not traveling. But, we do love good food and imbibing around St. Louis. A girl’s gotta eat,right?
About me: I was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and was raised in a small town on a small farm where we raised and sold competitive show pigs. My sow, Susie Q, won us multiple blue ribbons! I went to high school in northwestern Arkansas and graduated with my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with an emphasis on Marketing from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. After living in northern Nevada for almost a decade, I landed in St. Louis and have loved every minute of making St. Louis my home. Between us, my husband Gandhi and I have a daughter attending the Medical School at Mizzou, a daughter attending the Nursing Program at St. Louis Community College, and a teenage son that loves working on anything with an engine. In addition, we have a fur baby, St. Louie, that we rescued several years ago and is a joy to all – he’s been likened to an activity director on a cruise ship. My career has been devoted to corporate sales and marketing but after finding and purchasing our dream home, I fell in love with the process and wanted to help others in their journey. With every client I help and every sold sign we get to put in the yard, it reminds me of why I started this new chapter. I’d love the opportunity to help you with your next chapter whether it be buying or selling!

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.

Dorian@NextDoorSTL.com

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

Favorite St. Louis Restaurant: Pueblo Solis on South Hampton, they have the best nachos in town!

About Me: I am a Saint Louis native, born and raised in Kirkwood, MO. I currently reside in Eureka with my wife Jennifer and three children, Clara, Violet, and Jonah. When I am not working with clients to find their perfect home, I enjoy spending time with my family, running, and playing music. My favorite thing about being a Realtor is sitting across from a client at closing and seeing the excitement and relief on their face.

Proudest Moment: Selling my Webster Groves 2-family investment property to spend more time with family
Super Hero Power: To fly of course
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!

About me: Born and raised in Riverside, California, David graduated from USC with a degree in urban planning, after which he soon moved to St. Louis. He has lived in the city for the last six years, and despite initial confusion over the abundance of provel cheese and adult kickball leagues, he has come to call it home. Among his friends and colleagues, David is known for his storytelling, outgoing personality, and ready smile.
For David, working in real estate fuels a sense of adventure. Working with clients to find the right buyer and search for the perfect home never fails to spark that feeling of excitement, because the right fit could be just around the corner! Working with NextDoor provides David with an opportunity to engage with St. Louis and its residents, and to do one of his favorite things: connecting people with things they love!
I am: Thoughtful, personable, and energetic!
For fun I like to: Explore the city, volunteer, watch sports, and spend time with friends.
Fav Neighborhood: Tower Grove East

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.
