What brought you to the Gulf Coast?
We transferred here for my husband’s work. As a native Floridian I was very excited to come back to my home state after being away for 8 years.
What is missing in our community?
I’d love to see more activities for kids who aren’t into traditional sports, and more ways for kids to mentor each other. Oh, and I’d also love a Nordstroms!
Why did you first get into real estate?
As luck would have it our family has had to relocate regularly for my husband’s work. I have more experience home shopping and executing the logistics of moving than I ever imagined. As odd as it may sound, I enjoy planning and researching for those times to make sure my family has as seamless a transition as possible! Honing those planning/organization skills and coupling them with my genuine love of people and helping others, made real estate seem like a natural fit for me at this time in my life. Now it’s time to settle down here in Pensacola and help the community I have grown to love!
When you’re not working, what are you doing?
My free time is spent with my boys, and when I have a little peace and quiet I like to bake southern inspired goodies for friends and family.
What sets you and your company apart from other real estate companies?
A small, (but growing) dedicated team with varied expertise, that offers top-notch services and optimum value to its clients. Additionally, the team is united by a desire to work within the community to implement innovative ways for improvement.
