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, Tom 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.


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.
