Dielmann Sotheby’s International Realty Announces New Real Estate Professionals


1411685326ST. LOUIS, MO – Dielmann Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to announce the following new real estate professionals to join the team:

Ciara Samana joins Dielmann Sotheby's International Realty after a long career in health policy. Five years ago, she and her husband relocated to Saint Louis as part of a large corporate merger. Ciara found herself fascinated by the Saint Louis real estate market. She and her husband settled in the vibrant Central West End for several years before moving to University City. "Saint Louis is so wonderfully diverse in terms of architecture and neighborhoods," says Ciara. "We took our time finding the perfect home for our family and ended up in a fantastic neighborhood that is walkable to parks and restaurants."

As someone who has moved to Saint Louis within the last decade, Ciara personally understands not only the challenges of relocating but also the intricacies of the Saint Louis real estate market. She is committed to helping buyers feel confident about finding the perfect home for their family. As someone who has logged hundreds of hours analyzing the real estate market, she is also adept at advising sellers on ways to more effectively market their homes.

When she isn't poring over new listings, Ciara enjoys chasing her toddler around any of the many parks near their home.

Alex Daake is a new associate of Dielmann Sotheby's Realty in St. Louis. As a lifelong St. Louis resident, Alex attended John Burroughs high school and St. Louis University, and plans to utilize his extensive knowledge of the community to best represent his clients. After several successful years as a territory manager and sales representative of internationally recognized food equipment manufacturers, it was time to return to what he knows and loves: St. Louis real estate!

Real estate brings together his sales and management experience, as well as his passion for real estate investment. Alex's interests in sustainable development, architecture, and all aspects of design help him provide a professional and passionate approach to serving his clients. In addition to real estate sales, Alex is a regular donor to the Backstoppers Organization and an enthusiastic St. Louis sports fan, although as a lifelong hockey player, he is slightly partial to the St. Louis Blues. He currently resides in the Hi-Pointe area with his two rescue dogs Baylee and Bosco, and enjoys spending his free time on the bike path in Forest Park, playing golf, or pursuing his LEED certification.

Spencer Talbott is a Missouri native, born with a love of the industry. Coming from a family of construction and real estate, he cut his teeth designing and rehabbing his own investments. His vast real estate career has taken him throughout the Southeast to even selling properties on the West Coast. Longing to return home, he jumped at the opportunity to return to St. Louis in 2011.

Spencer began his Title Insurance career in 1998, leading him to become a licensed agent by 2003. A former entertainer and later a business leader, he achieved success in both arenas. Rising to the top of the nation's largest Title Insurance provider, Spencer later owned and operated his own Title & Escrow firm. You can count on his years of legal knowledge, his experiences navigating through transitional and elite neighborhoods, to his first-hand experience developing both low & high end properties. Honing his craft for well beyond a decade, Spencer gives nothing less than his signature Hollywood treatment to every client, every time, no matter the price point. Having personally experienced nearly all sides of his trade, he offers a unique perspective both locally and on a global level. His incomparable blend of Midwestern values, Southern Charm & West Coast Flair are just part what make him an invaluable, fresh approach to the St. Louis Real Estate market. Since his return to St. Louis, Spencer is a proud repeat-recipient of the Five Star Realtor Award.

Dielmann Sotheby’s International Realty would also like to announce the inclusion of Carol Kay McKown, Ron Guz, Traci Stix and Mary Suntrup to their team.
