I bring extensive experience in sales, customer service and technology and most of all "the people business" to my real estate profession. I provide quality information while assisting customers with their decisions and objectives. My goal is to achieve positive results by marketing my listings to get top dollar or focus on buyer's criteria in selecting homes that fit their needs! Educated for the business world, I have spent all of my life in management working with people in administration positions, with training & customer service prior to transitioning and trained in an extensive outside sales career. I am very proud that I have a lovely family...three sons, two daughters and seven beautiful grandchildren. I am fortunate to live in a wonderful area like Ponte Vedra Beach, so close to the ocean. It is like living in paradise, and I enjoy working with great associates here at the Ponte Vedra Watson office. I came to Florida from Cincinnati, Ohio and to say I love the winters here, is an understatement. I studied at The University of Cincinnati. I graduated from the Dale Carnegie School for sales, The Leaders Choice Real Estate training, The Mike Ferry Superstar Retreat, and Mike Ferry One-on-One Sales Coaching. For three straight years I achieved the Presidents Club Sales Award, The Silver Pinnacle Sales award and for my services in 2008, 2010 and 2013 I received the FIVE STAR SERVICE AWARD which is given for Client Satisfaction and is featured in the "Jacksonville Homebuyer Magazine." and the Jacksonville Business Journal. In 2009 I acquired the CDPE Certification, working with distressed properties and home owners facing foreclosure or loan modification or short-sale decisions. This has been a critical piece of todays market for both buyers and sellers but servicing the buyers and sellers in the capacity that benefits their needs best, is always my focus. Having had previous careers, nothing is like real estate, and having the opportunity to assist customers with one of their most important life decision either to buy or sell a home...very gratifying! As a realtor, it provides an opportunity for me to assist in making the process the most enjoyable real estate experience they will ever experience. I always put my customers first...Listening to my customers and assisting in finding the best home for my buyers is a special obligation that I take very seriously. I have lived in Ponte Vedra Beach since 1992 so I know the neighborhoods very well. My exposure and expertise to the city and suburbs from my former profession provides knowledge that helps me sell in all of Jacksonville areas, the Beaches, St. Augustine, St Johns Co areas and Ponte Vedra Beach. Jacksonville is a beautiful city with wonderful people. Lots of great neighborhoods where you can choose to live where you enjoy a variety of culture and fine arts are available everywhere in our city. Great beaches, grand vistas of nature plus Colleges and Universities convenient to all areas, are just a few things that our city has to offer in addition to so much nature, water and the ocean. One of the best features of our city are the many wonderful health care facilities, hospitals and elderly care facilities. In fact, we sometimes take our outstanding medical facilities for granted and forget to share the knowledge about all the wonderful hospitals located all over the city and at the beaches. Hospitals like Mayo Clinic, Baptist Hospital Complex which includes Nemours Children Hospital, a separate Heart Hospital, St Vincents downtown, St Lukes in the Southside are in addition to the main Baptist Hospital down town. In every part of town health facilities that meets the needs of all the neighborhoods. Plus a new one downtown Jax, Baptist/MD Anderson Center. We are very fortunate to have adult communities and more assisted living facilities in the immediate area. Turning Positive Energy into Positive Results is my work motto...Whether listing your home, marketing your home to get top dollar or assisting you in finding & buying a home, it is always about you... the customer! I have again won the Five Star Service award which is received from nominations and recommendations from my customers and past clients. Please feel free to call for a FREE consultation.
