A native of Pittsburgh, PA, my husband and I often visited Florida for vacations. Most of our visits took us to the East Coast of Florida; Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Miami, Palm Beach. Our first visit to the West Coast was to Naples in 1995. We had many visits to Naples between 1995 and 2003, when we left Naples to visit Sarasota.
In Sarasota for 15 minutes, we both fell in love with the city and its energy and charm. We didn't realize that a city, offering both a tropical lifestyle and a vibrant cultural & dining experience, existed on the "sleepy west coast". It did and it was Sarasota.
Right then, we decided that any effort and sacrifice that we had to make in order to make Sarasota our home would be worth it. So in 2004, we moved from Pittsburgh (where we both had lived our entire lives) to Sarasota - Paradise.
Upon arriving, I was immediately drawn into the excitement surrounding the growth and development of this unique city. It took no time to decide how I could be a part of it. Prior to moving to Sarasota I had over 20 years of experience in Marketing, Sales and Real Estate Investing. I recognized immediately the opportunity to marry all of the skills I had developed with my passion, Real Estate. I obtained my Real Estate License and became a Realtor.
I spent my first year with prestigious SKY Sotheby's International Realty, where I was exposed to a standard unsurpassed by any real estate company in Sarasota. Between that time and today, I've had the opportunity to work with 2 other brokerages, and where they were wonderful organizations, neither came close to offering what Sotheby's International Realty does. I felt it was imperative to offer my clients the very best in Real Estate services as that is the standard they are accustomed to ...THE VERY BEST. So I rejoined Signature Sotheby's International Realty, now Premier Sotheby's International Realty in the fall of 2010 and am overjoyed with what I can now offer my clients.
My personal commitment to offer excellence to those I work with, married with the incredible resources available from Sotheby's, is an unrivaled partnership that I am certain can benefit you. I look forward to meeting and working with you.
