Treating customers like family is both a guiding principle and a way of life for me. Growing up in the small town of Auburndale, Florida has taught me the value of treating people like family. Living in Florida and owning property here is one of the great privileges of my life. I love this area and once I show you around, I’m convinced you will love it too and want to plant roots of your own here. I also love the real estate business and I have the experience and local know-how to help you make the best possible decisions when it comes to buying or selling a home. Life is a journey and I feel as though my past experiences have been a crucial part of where I am today. I started my career with investing and Financial Planning working for two well-renowned companies, Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley. There I learned a lot about investing and saving, markets and trends, supply and demand, and most of all the fiduciary responsibility I had to serve people. I left this career after 10 years in the business to take on a new adventure owning my own business and raising my three boys. I am so thankful I took this time to really be there for my children, and again, I learned a lot. My time with my children only helped to solidify what I already knew about the importance of family and taking time to care for one another… and I developed massive amounts of patience. Today, I am confident, hard-working, and yet humble. I have helped many families realize their dream of homeownership and have helped others in difficult situations sell their homes out of necessity. Regardless of the situation, I believe my past experiences have given me all the tools I need to make sure your real estate transaction is a complete success!
