I am Gabriele DeHart, and I moved my life from Lake Constance, Germany to the City of St. Louis in 1986. I knew little of the language then, and I missed my favorite view of the lake from my home country. Culture shocked, I can remember thinking that mailboxes were trash cans and mufflers were food. But, I quickly adapted to my new home and learned that St. Louis had so many views and diverse cultures of its own. Soon the view of the lake was replaced by Forest Park, and skiing was replaced by biking and walks in the “Jewel of St. Louis.”
Real Estate was a natural choice for me. My Grandfather was a well-known architect in Germany, and my father managed a construction company. I grew up around construction sites, building plans and blueprints. I was a natural, it was in my blood, so in 2000 I acquired my real estate license.
St. Louis is where I live, but I have also made it the center of my volunteer activities, a part of my life and career that I view with great pride. I serve and have served on condominium boards in the Central West End and the downtown loft district. I am actively involved in the Shaw’s Botanical Garden and I love to attend St. Louis art and theater openings and live music events. One of my passions is supporting Stray Dog Theater in St. Louis, and I am proud to call them clients.
I have grown to appreciate this City for all it has to offer, and I am now proud to be one of its most dedicated advocates. It is a stellar place to own a home, and it offers a myriad of exciting experiences and opportunities for those fortunate enough to live here. It would be my great pleasure to help you with your real estate needs, and I guarantee that whatever your view might be, I will make your move in St. Louis a memorable and successful experience.
