Betsy Pepine, MBA

Biography:

Betsy moved to northwest Gainesville in 1974. After graduating from high school, she left Gainesville to pursue a business education at Duke University and a MBA in marketing from The Wharton School of Business. After a ten year career in pharmaceutical marketing, she returned to her hometown Gainesville and pursued her interest in real estate. Having been a real estate investor for years, she turned my passion into a career by becoming a full-time Realtor. Betsy soon became a broker and opened Pepine Realty and began building a robust real estate team, helping families and businesses with their relocation, second-home purchases, primary residences and office spaces.  Her team stays very active in the community, volunteering regularly in the communities that have supported them.  Pepine Realty has three offices in Gainesville, St. Augustine and Orlando, FL and also serves Ocala, Jacksonville, Flagler, Ormond and Daytona Beach. Personally, in addition to working full time as a broker of real estate, Betsy is an active volunteer in the community and internationally, earning a nomination for the Gainesville Sun's Community Service Award, having served on the PTA board at my daughters' schools for several years, as well as on her neighborhood's HOA board. She has been active teaching Gainesville's youth at church, assisting with homelessness in the community and have raised several guide dogs for the blind. She has also served as a Trustee at Trinity United Methodist Church. In her free time, she enjoys the outdoors, running, traveling, wine, cooking and reading.  Most importantly, Betsy has two daughters and three rescue dogs with whom she devotes significant time.
