I am a rare breed … a true Florida “native” having been born and raised in Miami, Florida. I graduated from Miami Palmetto Senior High School and subsequently became a proud University of Florida Gator. I graduated college with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing/Sales from Florida’s School of Business. I married my college sweetheart, a 5th generation Florida Keys native, whose family has resided in the Keys since the early 1900’s. My husband’s grandfather actually dredged many of the canals our homes are built on today. Both our children thrived in the local public-school system and ultimately attended our alma mater, University of Florida.
My family happily resides on the beautiful island of Upper Matecumbe Key in the Village of Islands, more commonly referred to as Islamorada, The Sportsfishing Capital of the World. I can attest to the latter since my husband and both our children have caught and released world record bonefish in the fabulous backcountry waters of Florida Bay. We have all enjoyed the natural marine sanctuary surrounding our beautiful islands, spanning over 100 miles south of the mainland of Florida. From fishing to birding, the Keys is a one-of-a-kind treasure. I happen to be obsessed with Roseate Spoonbills and take every opportunity to photograph then during my free time! With the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other, we have the most incredible backdrop for our backyard!
Upon moving to the Keys in 1994, I became a full time real estate sales associate and have successfully been listing and selling properties throughout Monroe County for over two decades. I specialize in both residential and commercial property sales and am currently working for one of the premier brokerage offices in the Florida Keys, American Caribbean Real Estate. We offer not only tremendous local knowledge but also global exposure through our affiliation with Christie’s International Real Estate. I am proud of my career success that includes closed sales volume exceeding $150 million dollars. Whether you are interested in purchasing or selling a residence, commercial business, or investment property… Let me guide and assist you with all your real estate decisions from Ocean to Bay in the Florida Keys!
