“Helping you secure the keys to your future.”
I was born in the beautifully frozen north of Minnesota, and stayed through kindergarten. I moved to the North Pinellas, West Pasco area thereafter and it has been my home since. While being able to enjoy the winter magic of sledding, and the Glistening of Christmas morning on the snow I never had to deal with the real world adult issues that come with the negative temperatures, and three feet of snow overnight. I did however get to experience the warm Sub-tropic climate of Florida, The long summer nights, and the famous local beaches.
Throughout High School I fell in love with Hospitality, and the ability to make a positive difference in someone’s day with great service, and an amazing experience. Starting off as a dishwasher at fifteen and quickly working my way into the fast-paced kitchen, I found my stride. At eighteen I became back of the house manager, and two short years later was general manager of a multi-million dollar Seafood Restaurant. During my twenty plus year career I have prided myself on the ability to connect with my employees and customers alike. I have opened numerous new restaurants, and concepts while building teams and systems to achieve successful businesses. After spinal surgery and recovery I decided I need a change of pace and that I would have to help people in a different way, real estate. While not the career the younger version of me had foreseen, the joy I get in helping others attain their piece of the American Dream is still prevalent and insures an exciting, rewarding, and challenging career ahead.
Having lived in North Pinellas since childhood, I believe my knowledge and experience in the area is a valuable asset. Whether you are looking for a Condo on the gulf beaches, a waterfront mansion nestled on the Nature Coast, or the perfect starter home in a quiet neighborhood. I’m here, helping you secure the keys to your future.
I have been a licensed Real Estate agent since the early 2000’s. I have specialized in the sale of waterfront homes and beach condos. Prior to Real Estate, I studied at Loyola University and graduated from George Mason University with a degree in Marketing. After college, I landed on Madison Ave, NYC. For many years I was instrumental for implementing new concepts in the advertising field which changed how we do business in the domestic and international markets to this day. I was fortunate to be involved in major international accounts like Budweiser Beer, Seiko Watches, McDonalds Corp, Ralston Purina, Seagram’s Spirits, Toyota USA, among other global corporations. I transferred to Madrid, Spain where I became general manager in the Washington D.C. and Madrid offices for approximately five years.
I was able to bring the marketing strategy from those multinational corporations and apply the basics to the marketing of the beautiful homes here on the “Gold Coast”. I worked with Century 21 and Remax until joining Liberte’ Realty which allows me to offer my clients the best one-on-one service.
You hire a realtor for three reasons: for exposure, representation, and negotiating skills. Due to the personal service that I offer my clients, today most of my clients have also become my friends. I go to battle for my clients, keeping them informed at every single step of the transaction. I get involved in each sale and each transaction is very special to me. I have a network of agents world-wide and we exchange information on property to best serve our clients.
