It's a Beautiful Thing when a Career and Passion come together!
As a resident of Manatee and Sarasota County for over 35 years and a Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser for over 13 years, I have strong knowledge and understanding of the Manatee and Sarasota Real Estate Market. I am a graduate of University of South Florida and began my career in Real Estate Sales to help assist sellers and buyers with their realty needs, while providing an additional level of experience as an Appraiser.
I have always had a passion for Real Estate from a very young age, instilled by my parents from their years of investing in "fixer upper" properties, restoring them, and placing them back on the market. At a young age, I was taught the value of home improvements, quality of construction, and basically how to get my hands "dirty". My family worked together to bring beauty back into these homes that had been neglected. Once each home was finished and ready to market, I mostly enjoyed the before and after pictures as a testament to our hard work and effort.
I have taken that work ethic and knowledge, combined it with my years of experience in Real Estate, Sales, and Negotiations, to bring to my clients a level of expertise that is different from my competition. I am committed to my clients, both as an advisor and confidant, throughout the Real Estate process. Recognizing that Real Estate decisions can be a very personal matter, it helps to have someone with solid market knowledge who can navigate those waters for you. I am the agent with those navigational skills and would be excited and honored to assist in your new Florida home search.
I am grateful to have found a career that does not feel like a job, but is truly a passion that I enjoy. I would appreciate the opportunity to help you!
