How did you get into real estate?
Early on, I worked for a real estate attorney in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. He encouraged me to take a real estate course so I would understand the terminology needed for closings. I received my initial associate license in 1978 while working for him. A client encouraged me to sell real estate part-time for his company and I liked it so much that I went into real estate full-time. I further worked to get my full broker's license so that I could also have the option to run my own office one day. This same attorney became a developer and I went back to work with him and his partners as a broker in charge of Summa Group Realtors and then, I became a project director for his resort, The Lahaina Inn Resort on Fort Myers Beach. I worked there for 18 years before moving to Highlands in 1995.
Tell us about one of your most interesting deals.
My most interesting deal was selling a 26-acre parcel of land in Highlands that a local contractor owned. The main house had 5 Bedrooms, 5 1/2 bathrooms, and other buildings such as a large workshop, large garage, three cabins, and a gorgeous setting with a small lake, ponds and a waterfall. The house and buildings were in disrepair and in need of some tender loving care. My buyers are exceptionally talented. One is a top designer, and her husband is a custom furniture maker. Together they have created the most beautiful venue, perfect for weddings and family gatherings. Find them on Instagram, @flatmountainfarm. It was interesting to see the before and now the after of a beautiful renovation for a very talented couple.
What are your daily “must-do(s)”?
My daily "must do" is start and end my day in gratitude!
How do you like to spend your free time?
In my free time, I like to hike trails, and waterfalls and also enjoy the local restaurants with friends to enjoy good food and a glass of wine.
Share one thing on your bucket list.
On my bucket list is a river cruise through the south of France ending up in Barcelona!
Is there anything else you’d like to share about yourself or your business?
I love houses and people, matching them together.
