Brandon Wappelhorst, a commercial real estate broker for Sansone Group, and his wife, Megan Wappelhorst, a Whirlpool sales representative, knew exactly what kind of home they wanted to raise a family in. “We wanted to find an older house, with some character, in a family-friendly neighborhood that was centrally located,” Brandon recalls. Richmond Heights encapsulated all this and more, making it the perfect place for the Wappelhorsts and their 8-month old son, Finn, plus their dog, Oliver. Brandon shares why Richmond Heights has brought so much happiness to his family, and why the community brings so much to St. Louis’ top-rated neighborhoods.
