One of my favorite things to do is to meet new people!  When considering the idea of buying or selling real estate, you need a professional who will truly listen to and strive to understand your goals. As a real estate professional, my goal is to get to know you and to understand your objectives. Along the way, we will have the opportunity to build a relationship so that we can both celebrate the closing of your transaction!

I am fortunate to call Naples home – in every sense of the word.  I spent my childhood in Naples -- fishing, SCUBA diving, camping and exploring nature and all that Southwest Florida has to offer.  As long as I am outside, and surrounded by this beautiful landscape, I am happy.  

While I spent the majority of my childhood and adolescent years in Naples, I also had the good fortune to travel east where I attended a performing arts prep school in Boston.  As a dance major, I enjoyed the diversity and culture of a Northeastern metropolitan city.  While it was one of the best experiences of my life thus far, in terms of education, I really missed Florida! As a college student, I couldn’t bear the thought of being away from this gorgeous (and warm) place so I enrolled in the University of South Florida where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Finance. While I still kept up with my artistic side and continued to dance, I also learned the value of a finance degree.   I became a mortgage banker where I specialized in real estate accounting and real estate brokering.

While working in the mortgage industry, I realized that my true passion is working with people in the purchase or sale of residential property.  I love my hometown, Naples, and the real estate business; from my work as a loan officer for the largest Florida real estate developer to real estate agent to broker associate – I have enjoyed the journey.

In addition to raising two children, I have done it all in real estate from working in commercial and residential real estate, to property management and accounting.

With my background, education and experience, I am set to help you achieve your goal of finding just the right home for you.  I can also help you to market and to sell your home or commercial property.  I possess local knowledge, provide outstanding customer service, have excellent communication skills, and I am an honest and skilled negotiator. I am grateful for the relationships I have. I am blessed to love this business and believe real estate is a natural fit with my skills and personality. Call or email me today and I promise to provide you with the real estate experience of a lifetime!
