Realtor®, CRS, Vice President
My focus is creating remarkably positive experiences for people, whether they are buying or selling a property. I am consistently ranked among the top agents in the Greater Gainesville area, so I truly understand the needs of my clients. I leverage my background in advertising, sales and marketing to assist every type of client. I attribute my success in the real estate industry, largely in part to my ability to successfully market homes for sale and my use of technology marketing to stay on the leading edge of this industry. Also, I have strived to make consumer research, market insight, and marketing communications the center of all of my strategies.
I was raised in Florida and am also a University of Florida graduate, so I have witnessed tremendous growth in this area. I have made Gainesville my home; first living in SW Gainesville, NW Gainesville and now in High Springs. My history and knowledge of North Florida makes me an ideal guide to the area and a trusted advisor in finding clients' ideal properties. I am a second generation Realtor and started my real estate career serving as the marketing manager for Pepine Realty, and later on moved onto the Director of Sales and Operations role managing and training the top selling team in Alachua County. Now, I am also a marketing specialist in residential, commercial, lands and farms.
In addition to working full-time in real estate, I help my husband with his commercial vegetable farm. In my free time, I enjoy being active in the community, spending time with my horses and rescue dog, running, drinking coffee and traveling. I also love Gator football games, vintage furniture, wine and exploring the wonderful springs and rivers that North Florida has to offer.
