I am extremely excited to report that I have received my Broker’s license!!! You are now looking at Island Real Estates newest Broker’s Associate. I was born & raised in the metropolitan New York City area and right after I graduated college as a member of Phi Theta Kappa National Honor Society with my AAS in Fine Arts in hand, I made the decision to relocate to Los Angeles, CA. I then spent many years working in the Travel & Tourism trade stretching from Hawaii & California, through Las Vegas and then back to New York. In the late 80’s I began my degree in Real Estate in California. In 1997 I received my Real Estate license, and began practicing in the suburbs of New York City. I now have been a licensed Realtor in sunny Florida since 2003, working predominately on the surrounding islands off Sarasota and Manatee counties. A strong supporter in the ongoing education within our industry, I obtained my GRI from the Graduate of the Real Estate Institute, Certified Distressed Property Expert and Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource credentials. Whether you are looking into a primary residence, a vacation home, or the perfect investment property, I will be glad to work with you through all the steps. Whether it be buying or selling, you can have complete confidence in my knowledge & ethics from property searches, or marketing plans through contract to closing.
