I am a transplanted “buckeye” from Ohio.  I came to the Charlotte County, Florida area in 1979, planted my roots firmly into the Florida sand and I haven’t looked back!  

Having been a licensed real estate salesperson since 1983, my primary focus has continued to be providing exceptional service to each and every one of my customers. Prior to becoming a full-time real estate professional / REALTOR®, I pursued a career in real estate law as a paralegal for 14 years and obtained a wealth of knowledge in the areas of real estate closings, probate, as well as litigation.

I am a Certified e-PRO, RSPS (Resort & Second Home Property Specialist), SFR (Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource specialist), AHWD (At Home With Diversity), PSA (Pricing Strategy Advisor), and SRES (Seniors Real Estate specialist).  I specialize in customer relocations throughout the country, helping you make your move easier.  I can even assist you in finding and referring an agent to help with selling your out of state home. I am a member of the Punta Gorda-Port Charlotte-North Port Board of Realtors, a member of the Florida Association of Realtors, as well as the National Association of Realtors. I served on the local WCR (Women’s Council of Realtors) Governing Board as Secretary during 2007 and 2008, as well as the Sponsorship Chair 2013-2018. I have also served on the Legislative and Grievance Committees with our local Board of Realtors since 2013. I like being involved within the community and assisting in fundraisers that support our locals, including Habitat for Humanity, PGI Green Thumbs Parks Beautification, Shoes for Kids, Toys for Tots, Salvation Army, Back Pack Kidz, Animal Welfare League, Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, as well as for our military veterans and active duty troops, to name a few.

I specialize in waterfront home sales, as I really love boating and fishing all around Charlotte Harbor. I also enjoy cooking, traveling and spending time with family and friends. I have enjoyed having many different animals in my lifetime, mostly dogs and horses, and love meeting new furry friends along my travels and in my business. Working in real estate sales and meeting new people all the time and assisting them with planning for and selling their home, as well as helping buyers in finding their dream home in paradise, is very rewarding to me. I like being a part of the opening of a new life chapter with them. I feel that my background and knowledge of this area definitely provide my customers with a one of a kind real estate experience.
