As a Florida native, originally from Apopka, I have lived my entire life within Central Florida. After graduating from high school, and while attending college, I developed a habit of moving every year. As a result, I have a keen understanding of the various neighborhoods in Orlando and the best places to eat. After graduating from Full Sail University with a degree in Web Design & Development, I pursued a career as a web developer. Subsequently, I launched a local marketing firm, quickly advancing from a role completely technical in nature, to becoming a well-versed client facing strategist. Clients benefitted from my ability to understand their issues and explain in layman’s terms, the technical jargon only a developer would typically understand. This attention to detail and desire for clarity- has carried over into my real estate career. While building my company, we specialized in creating websites, web apps, managing social media and email marketing for a variety of clients. My experience in executing marketing plans is a huge asset for properly marketing a home for sale. After five (5) years of working as a developer and building my own freelance marketing company, I switched to real estate with the goal of helping families achieve home ownership. I learned quickly, that although the American Dream is home ownership, we are never taught the process to purchase or sell a home growing up. I enjoy helping families make the biggest financial purchase of their lives and understand that it is a very emotionally rewarding opportunity. I focus on educating the customer throughout the purchasing process, ensuring their understanding of potential outcomes, managing expectations and the next steps ahead. When working with relocation customers, I love to show them the real culture and food scene within the Orlando area, which helps them pick the neighborhood that best fits their lifestyle. In 2019, I decided it was time to expand and grow a team of future leaders within the real estate market. As an avid proponent of growth and evolution, sharing what I learned over my years of experience with like-minded agents ready to further their impact was the next step. The market was growing and so was the need to have a stronger reach within the surrounding communities. Currently, I lead a team of thirty- nine (39) agents, covering: Tampa and Central Florida. Beyond real estate, I am passionate about the arts, food, and culture within Orlando. I often attend art events and look for ways to give back to our community. Currently, I sit on the board of the Downtown Arts District and have always been involved in the local Chamber of Commerce. When on vacation, I love to adventure, especially when scuba diving is involved. You can always count on me to act in your best interest and I pride myself on being responsive, candid, trustworthy and knowledgeable in the real estate market. Whether you are an experienced investor, or a first-time buyer, I can help you find the property of your dreams. Please feel free to browse my website or let me guide you every step of the way. Call, or email me and set your appointment today.
