A SWFL Real Estate Leader
A Minnesota native, I acquired my BA degree from the University of Minnesota and went on to establish a career with the Girl Scouts of the USA as program director and volunteer coordinator. Re-establishing a home for my family in SW Florida after selling a business and retiring from the Girl Scouts has been the best decision I have ever made-this is paradise. Not wishing to remain idle, I acquired my Florida Real Estate license in 1998 working directly for Century 21 Fine Homes & Estates on Sanibel Island. I received the Century 21 'Rookie of the Year' for all of Florida during my 2nd year in real estate. Subsequently I have been designated as a certified island and buyer's specialist.
However, knowing there are many ownership possibilities across the causeway from Sanibel and Captiva-back on the mainland, I have broadened my knowledge and board membership in other Southwest Florida areas including Bonita, Ft Myers and Naples. I carefully monitor the market of all of these communities and carefully interpret trends. As a member in many multiple listing systems, international networking affiliations and social media, my clients receive thorough and unlimited representation-both buyers and sellers.
I am a full-time, full-service REALTOR® whose expertise is centered around luxury island waterfront, residential and resort properties. Integrity, discretion and extremely detail oriented, I am able to seamlessly move my clients through the purchasing process. Relying on 15 years of proven real estate proficiency provides my clients, both buyers and seller, with outstanding information on all aspects of island ownership. I regularly earn the title of "Realtor of the Month" for the past 15 years, most recently with Royal Shell Real Estate with 9 offices located on Sanibel (2), Captiva (2), Bonita, Ft Myers and Naples (2).
