    I have the greatest "job" in the world!

    For home sellers, featuring all the wonderful aspects of their unique home and of our suncoast and, for buyers, helping them to find the home that really does match the one they've been dreaming about.

    It is certainly not work. It is a pleasure!

    Professional Background
    Now, as an experienced realtor, I look back on my 30 year career as a senior manager at IBM simply as preparation for my real love ... real estate. My husband and I enjoyed every one of our 7 corporate relocations, loved renovating homes and building investment property.

    My responsibilities in the numerous and varied positions that I was privileged to hold at IBM included sales, marketing, consulting, project management, personnel and people management, financial management, risk management, contingency planning, and change management. And I will bring ALL of these skills to bear to help make your real estate buying or selling experience a smooth, pleasant, and rewarding one.

    Most of all, I will listen carefully so that I can best bring my knowledge about our real estate marketplace and business expertise to bear to help you achieve your goals.
