I have been a licensed Realtor® and a licensed CAM (Community Association Manager) since 1990 as my ‘chosen profession’ all starting right here in the beautiful Florida Keys. I know the islands well that link Key Largo to Key West both by land and by sea.
How did I get here? I had just accepted a position as an on sight Property Manager for the Kon Tiki Resort making this bay front property my first Keys home. This unique acreage, with 10 individual homes, is where I started my Real Estate career! I had the opportunity to work with each owner, their families, and their friends. I also helped several investors find their perfect piece of paradise here in the tropics.
An old saying is ‘home is where the heart is’ and mine would be right here in Islamorada residing for over 30 years. This pretty island is often nicknamed the “Purple Isle,” which explains the beautiful colored Sunsets. When I moved to Islamorada in 1984, there were only 1,100 full time residents. I made the move here not knowing anything about the Keys lifestyle other than being one of the most sought out fishing and diving destinations in the World.
In the old days when the resort was full I would hang the “Gone Fishing” sign which would give me a chance to go and explore Back Country Fishing, the Everglades National Park or an occasion swim in the crystal blue water, while having the chance to play with schools of Dolphin. Once you visit and explore the fabulous Florida Keys you will want to return or stay and “I would like to personally welcome you! “
