Find Your Place In The Sun

As a resident of Longboat Key for 21 years, I built a home, raised my daughter and got to know the ins and outs of waterfront island living.  With a move to NW Bradenton and now central Sarasota,  I've been fully immersed in the Sarasota-Manatee area for close to 26 years.  I love calling this beautiful slice of Florida my home. Of course, award winning beaches,  turquoise water, stunning nature preserves,  bays, rivers and lots of green space offer an outdoor playground 12 months of the year.  But the beauty goes beyond the beach!  Sarasota's art and culture is rich and vibrant year round; the culinary landscape is increasingly diverse and creative; a generous spirit fosters some of the most engaged community programs in the country.  Plus, Gulf of Mexico sunsets really never get old.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia and spent many happy summers at the Jersey Shore. My career in hotel management brought me to several cities along the East coast.  Florida beckoned with an opportunity to switch gears into business development for a children's game company. I've always had a hand in property management and leasing. Throughout, listening to and understanding customers' needs, being solution oriented and effectively negotiating to a positive outcome are key skills.

Real Estate is the largest and most important investment many individuals make. It's my privilege to help navigate the process, whether it's purchasing a first home, buying investment property, selling a family estate or any scenario between.  I'm dedicated to providing an exceptional real estate experience, sharing my resources, skill and first hand knowledge of the market.  Partnering with Coldwell Banker brings exceptional technology, marketing, and a great network of professionals serving every facet of the industry.
