Do you know what I love about this career? Guiding the transition that develops from listening to a customer's real estate goals to making them a reality. Helping buyers find their dream home. And making sure that a seller gets the best return possible on their biggest investment. It's so rewarding to see my customer's excitement at closing. I find helping others throughout the process of buying or selling a home to be truly elevating. Ask anyone who knows me and you'll find I'm known for listening: actually listening and really understanding your goals. And you'll find me dedicated to making those goals a reality. From experience, I know that most obstacles can be overcome by knowing the right steps to take or the right person to contact. That's one reason I maintain solid relationships and contacts with professionals in all aspects of real estate. If a problem arises that requires a creative or seldom seen solution, I will find it! To make sure that things go as they should I am organized, and always keep an open line of communication with everyone involved. And whether you know the area, or are relocating, I am here to help answer any questions that you might have about the many neighborhoods of Jacksonville and St Johns. Once a transaction is complete I would like my customers to remember me as a dedicated Realtor, who is knowledgeable, friendly and who always kept them informed throughout the process. To have them refer me to others, or contact me whenever their real estate needs change would be truly gratifying. Born and raised in New Jersey, I graduated college with a BA in Elementary Education and Psychology, then worked as a teacher until I had my second child. I taught Kindergarten and preschool in NJ and worked as a substitute teacher for Duval County Public Schools. I decided that I wanted a career with more flexibility and discovered a real passion for real estate. Drawn to the Florida lifestyle (and weather), my husband and I moved here in 2012. We lived in Mandarin for the first 5 years and are now in St Johns with our two children. Real estate, as they say, never sleeps, but, I love spending time with my husband and 2 children outdoors, enjoying the beautiful Florida weather. Also, I enjoy watching my children participate in sporting events. And, of course, relaxing by the pool.
