I began my real estate career in 1981 as a real estate agent and then as a mortgage loan originator. I was a top producer and award winner in both fields. In 1997 I transitioned into the Corporate world working first as a Client Services Manager facilitating transactions in the Government marketplace (FHA and VA) and later as a Sales Executive of transaction software solutions to medium and large lending institutions. In this capacity I was also a liaison to their User Group as well as to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on automated underwriting.
In 2002, I accepted a position with the United States Marshals Service (USMS), Asset Forfeiture Division. I managed a team responsible for both property management and disposal of residential and commercial assets throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. These properties were forfeited by the United States Attorneys offices because of illegal activity. Sales amounts ranged from the thousands of dollars to the multi-millions. I personally managed many with very high public profiles. My previous private sector experience provided me with the expertise to negotiate and resolve complex issues.
In 2015 my husband and I relocated to Venice Florida. We love the Florida sunshine and the more leisurely pace. I obtained my Florida real estate license and now work with buyers and sellers in the field I am passionate about. I am dedicated to achieving my customers real estate goals through superior customer service and communication while making every transaction go as smoothly as possible from Listing, to Contract, and ultimately to a successful closing. I have had transactions in Venice, Sarasota, Nokomis, and Port Charlotte.
In my leisure time I enjoy entertaining family and friends, playing bridge, book clubs, and outdoor activities. I am on the Board of my neighborhood HOA and was past chair of my community's Fundraiser in support of local nonprofit organizations through their annual grant program.
