More About Me

Personal Background

Growing up in a military family, I spent my younger years traveling the country and abroad, including Washington, Maine, Virginia, The Azores Islands, and Jacksonville, to name a few. This unique lifestyle has enabled me to be very adaptable and flexible, a quality I find very useful in my real estate career. I have lived in Florida since 1981 and in the Sarasota-Bradenton area since 1995.

Professional Style

Because I relocated every few years, I became interested in houses at a very early age, which led to a career in real estate. My professional demeanor is one of confidence, knowledge and dedication to results. You can count on exceptional professionalism, nothing less. Whether you are new to real estate or a seasoned professional, let me partner with you to help you build your business.

I Know Your Neighborhood

As a long-time resident of Sarasota and Manatee counties, I’ve seen many changes to our area. With real estate market changes occurring at a record pace, you need someone who is on top of the market and has local knowledge. Let me show you why Sarasota-Bradenton is one of the top real estate markets in Florida.

Education Philosophy

My management and leadership philosophy is based on building and nurturing relationships with independent sale associates. My goal is to create an environment in which all agents feel successful. I am a principles-based leader with a high level of integrity. I aspire to win the trust and confidence of the agents, and am committed to investing in each of them to inspire their greatness to emerge.
