I grew up in Tarpon Springs, on the Gulf Coast.of Florida, I lived in the Tampa Bay area until moving to the Jacksonville area in 2000. I started in Real Estate within 3 months of moving to Jacksonville and after 18 years I still can't imagine doing anything else. It's wonderful to meet so many interesting people from all over the United States and countries all over the world to help them find their "NEW" home here or to help them to sell a home as they move on to their next adventure! Through the transactions, many of my customers have become friends. I have a soft spot for Dachshunds and I am a long time supporter of the Safe Animal Shelter of Clay County. I have sponsored a yearly event, PET PHOTOS WITH SANTA, since 2001 to raise funds for the many dogs and cats in need.
