I was born in Ohio but was raised in Florida since 1969 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. I completed 2 yrs of college studying business and accounting and worked in the banking industry and then as a young adult, I worked for MultiVest, Inc as an investment accountant handing investments in Euro dollars, repurchase agreements and handling margin calls for one of the sister companies called International Precious Metals. I handled a $50m line of credit through Chase Manhattan Bank as well as a $10m line of credit through Citi Bank back in the late 1970's.
I got married in 1980 and was blessed with 1 son and was an at home mom for several years.
I started my career in Florida Real Estate in 1988 working for Arvida on the grounds of the Boca Raton Hotel and Club with a special project called Mizner Village as an administrative assistant. Arvida was so impressed with my outgoing personality and my ability to communicate with people, they decided to put me through Real Estate school and I have been at it ever since. Selling waterfront condominiums on the intracoastal, the price point started at $250,000 to over $1m. It was a fabulous opportunity for me to learn this business. After a few years when this project was sold out, I decided to go into general real estate and was with Century 21 for several years and then moved to Prudential WCI for several years until I moved to Central Florida in 2001. I worked for Weichert Realtors Hallmark Properties from 2002 to April 2015 and became a top producer and mentor for the company in the Orlando area.
In addition to my real estate career, I also held a position on the planning and zoning board for the town I lived in for nearly 6 years. Then due to relocating to Sarasota, Florida, I decided to change companies and I worked for Atchley International Realty for over 1 year selling waterfront properties, condominiums and golf course communities.
Now I have moved back to the Orlando metro area and decided it was best to go back to my home roots and back with the company I was happiest with, Weichert Realtors Hallmark Properties. I am currently working out of the Lake Mary office and I couldn't be happier. Please note that I still handle all the surrounding areas that I am very familiar with and have done business which includes Metro Orlando, Clermont and all of Lake County (where I use to live), Lake Mary, Heathrow, Sanford, Deland, Lake Helen and all the surrounding areas.
I pride myself in being successful in this business because I truly love what I do and I love helping people always remembering to treat my customers as I would want to be treated! For most people, their home is their most precious investment and its personal.
One of the other hats I have worn is that I have owned an antique business in Mount Dora, Florida and have done estate sales for clients as well as sell their homes during the process. I have 1 son who is married and I have 4 beautiful and handsome grandsons of which I consider a true blessing.
I also volunteer my services to the The Red Cross handing out housing vouchers or food vouchers to people in need and just being a set of ears to listen and be there for people in need. I also volunteer with Habitat for Humanity in helping paint, roof or whatever I can do to help serve my community.
I have made many life long friends in this business and I hope to continue to make more.
