WE ARE ALETO CONSTRUCTION GROUPHERE'S WHY YOU'LL GET INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION FROM SOME PRETTY UNIQUE INDIVIDUALS
PATRICIA ALETO – OWNER
Patricia — Patti, in person — is much more than the owner and president of Aleto Construction Group. She is also its heart and soul, its voice and handshake.
Since 1995, she has been a central part of the company founded by her father, Mike Aleto. Now at the helm, Patti brings a lifetime of hands-on experience to every contact and every client. Drawing on lessons learned from her father and the industry as a whole, she lives and breathes the construction business as few can, with an intuitive grasp of aesthetics, architecture and financials. It’s a powerful combination that every homeowner wants in their corner.
A member of countless boards and builder associations, Patti is plugged into every industry development in the St. Louis market, as well as some outside the area. She began her work in the construction business as a cabinet maker, and she applies that roll-up-your-sleeves mindset to connect meaningfully with clients, helping them to realize visions of the perfect space, executed with the care and craftsmanship that would make her father proud. A dedicated vegetarian as well as 20-year practitioner and instructor of transcendental meditation, Patti’s approach to life is as holistic and spiritual as her approach to building and design.
ANDREW O’DELL – VP OF OPERATIONS
Andrew came to Missouri for college in the 1990s and never left. A proud Mizzou graduate, Andrew has spent more than 20 years creating lasting partnerships in real estate, construction and related industries in the St. Louis area (CWE, Southampton and St. Louis Hills), as well as building an impressive resume of marketing expertise.
Andrew is particularly proud of the work Aleto does with new construction, and spends most of his time cultivating lasting relationships with clients. In his spare time, however, he enjoys the St. Louis restaurant scene (Farmhaus, Element and Bar Les Freres are among his favorites). In the few quiet moments he gets, he can be found enjoying a glass of wine and discussing business strategy with his partner, Mark, and his beagle, Jackson.
MIKE ALETO – VP DESIGN/BUILD
Mike continues the family tradition for thoughtful design as Aleto Construction’s Head of Production. When a new project takes shape, Mike is the one talking—and listening—to both the customer and the builders who will bring their vision to life. He is constantly on the move, juggling a thousand priorities without dropping the ball for anyone.
As you would expect from a man in his position, Mike thinks fast on his feet and always finds the humor in any situation. Trusted by contractors and customers alike, he can bring projects to life like no one else—and he never quits until the job is done. Married for 25 years to his wife, Paula, they have three children and three grandchildren (so far). Now in High Ridge, Mike has been a part of this community for a long time, particularly the backyard grilling and smoking scene.
JAIME WEYRAUCH – DIRECTOR OF MARKETING AND CLIENT RELATIONS
A graduate of Hickey College right here in St. Louis, Jaime puts her education and experience in business management to work in countless ways for Aleto. She has worked in home construction for more than 12 years, providing knockout customer service, marketing and event planning that helps spotlight great results—and fulfilled dreams.
Now living in Ferguson, Jaime, her husband and three children enjoy the community more with each passing day. They enjoy shopping and dining at local merchants and participation in their local parish. Jaime is in love with her century home and enjoys entertaining guests whenever friends or family are in the neighborhood.
JOHN DUNLAP – FIELD CARPENTER
John is Aleto Construction’s own Leonardo da Vinci. From trim to framing, John has mastered the science and art of carpentry as few have. Creative and inventive, he’s known for his ability to ferret out solutions no one else can see. His work scales all the way up to heavy structural construction—including steel and heavy wood work that many carpenters aren’t able to handle, along with the heavy machinery that moves it all into place. At the same time, John’s detail-oriented work extends into other fields, like plumbing, electrical, HVAC and much more.
John is skilled with blueprints, CAD drawings and all the latest computer-driven design tools. He is also an EPA-certified Lead Renovator. On his rare off-days, John likes to spend time on his motorcycle, in his bass boat, attending a Blues game, or playing in one of his floor hockey leagues.
