I was licensed in 1987 and started Real Estate working for Huskey Realty in Longwood, FL. There, I learned high-end Real Estate from E. Everette Huskey. Husky developed Sweetwater Oaks, Rivercrest, Sweetwater Club and many other prestigious communities throughout the Orlando area. After a few years at Huskey Realty, I went from being a new agent to running a top producing team. After Husky I have worked at: RE/MAX for 5 years, Realty Executives Orlando for 8 years, Keller Williams for 3 years and Charles Rutenberg Realty for 10 years. Now, I am returning back to Realty Executives, where I am about to celebrate my 34th year in the business!
I've successfully helped over 740 families reach their Real Estate goals with a total volume over $140,000,000. I provide a lot of experience that is passed onto my buyers and sellers. I've also earned 9 national designations and certifications over the years which adds to my experience that I share with my clients.
My business is divided equally between buyer's and seller’s, so I like to keep in touch with changes in the dynamic market. I work with a lot of relocation clients. For example, most families have limited time and lots of stress, so my job is to make the move as smooth as possible by using my experience and professional connections. I listen to my clients' wants & needs to guide them and help reach their Real Estate goals. I work from Disney all the way to Deland, Clermont to the Beaches. That being said, I offer a vast referral network of my personal relationships that I have developed over the past 34 years, so if you need a referral for insurance, financing, inspectors, moving companies, school information, home repairs and about anything else related to life, call me, I will most likely know someone to fit your needs.
I am originally from Medical Lake, Washington (Spokane) and moved to Orlando in 1978 at the age of 17. I attended Seminole State College with a degree in Business Administration. My father was in the Air Force, last stationed at Fairchild A.F.B., where I was born. I grew up on a farm where I learned how to grow any type of plant imaginable. Also, my father was an agronomist so we had crops, a greenhouse, and huge gardens where we produced vast amounts of vegetables, which we sold. With that, our family owned a custom home business and built hundreds of homes, I worked on the crews learning every aspect of home design and construction. When we moved to Florida, we owned a business called Log Structures of the South, where we built custom red cedar log homes all over the Southeast U.S. Each home was a custom masterpiece. Then I got into the design and sales side of the industry before getting into real estate.
In my rare free time, I enjoy taking my bike out and tearing up some pavement, going to the many theme parks that are around Orlando, hitting the beach for fun weekends and love to enjoy time with my friends at the local restaurants and wine bars. At home, I spend time improving my home and hitting the hot tub to chill out after a hard day’s work. Also, I grow lots of house plants and then give them away to my friends.
With my team of Buyer's Agents, we market and sell homes anywhere in the greater Orlando Metro. We work from Windermere to Deland and from Clermont to East Orlando. After closing over 740 properties, there isn't a neighbord that I haven't been in and that my team can't service. Basically Orange, Seminole, Osceola & West Volusia. Here is the list of towns and cities that we cover.
Lake Nona / Medical City Area
Celebration / Disney Area
Our team is divided into 2 divisions. Our Listing team focus on ways to price and market property. Utilizing the latest tools to promote homes which include 3-D virtural tours, high res drone photography, cutting edge web sites, top placement on www.realtor.com, www.zillow.com as well as syndication to every real estate related web site in the world for our digital marketing. Our local and print marketing includes geo targeted postcards, QR code driving individual web sites for every listing, targeted newsletters, professional copy for each description which drives the MLS feeds, professional staging for our listing and so much more.
Our buyer agent side is dedicated to helping each family reach their real estate goals. We help with finding the right lender, listening to our clients needs to find and then beat out other offers so you get the home you want. In our hyper-competitive driven market, just having the highest offer won't work, you have to have an agent that knows how to negotiate and box out the other 12 offers that might be on the table. Having an advocate that works harder than the other agent, knows how to present and package your offer is invaluable today, more than ever. We win for our buyer's and seller's because we care and we know what we are doing.
