What do you love about living in the Sarasota area?

Where do I begin? Sarasota has so much to offer…beaches, boating, sun, The Legacy Trail, St. Armands Circle, restaurants, shopping, wonderful people, great weather, the arts. It’s also close to many other fun places like Orlando, Tampa, St. Pete, Ft. Myers, etc. We live where people go on vacation! Sarasota offers an amazing quality of life!

What’s your favorite restaurant and place to shop in Sarasota?

Oooo…I am a foodie, and I also enjoy adult beverages, so I really like going to a variety of restaurants and exploring different menus. I also love a great view of the water. Dry Dock Waterfront Grill on Longboat Key is one of my favorites!

When it comes to shopping, I’m all about HomeGoods! I love the variety of items available and the reasonable prices. Purchasing items for my home excites me more than clothes, shoes, or jewelry. Don’t get me wrong, those are fun items to shop for too, but I have always enjoyed decorating and creating a space that makes me smile every time I walk in the door.

Tell us about your career.

I’m a full time REALTOR® with the LUXE Fine Homes Team at Keller Williams on the Water, downtown Sarasota. I help my clients buy, sell, and/or invest in real estate.

Real estate transactions have many potential financial and legal pitfalls. My team helps take these risks off our clients. We also have the experience and negotiating skills to help keep more money in our clients’ pockets. Real estate can be very complicated, so it’s important to have a good agent advocating for you.

What do you love about your career?

It has always been important to me to have a career that is both challenging and rewarding. Being in real estate is hard work and it’s competitive. It also offers versatility. As a REALTOR®, every day is different and the market is constantly changing. As a former teacher, I also enjoy helping to educate my clients through real estate processes.

Real estate is very personal too. I take joy in being a resource for my clients and helping them find a home that will be in their memories forever. It is also exciting and motivating to help people through major times in their life. I’m fortunate to be part of some of life’s biggest moments with my clients. Plus, I get to work and interact with a variety of people!

What are some of your hobbies?

Boating is one of my favorite things to do, and the Sarasota area is the perfect place for it. There are so many beautiful sights to see and things to do on the water (sunsets, dolphins and Manatees, sandbar swimming, scuba diving and snorkeling, etc.). My husband owns a charter business as well, Sarasota Sun Cruises, and we are fortunate to be able to be on the water a lot. In addition, I enjoy camping, traveling, pretty much anything adventurous, and singing. When I get the chance, I also like to relax with a good show or movie.

How do you juggle work and motherhood?

Like many moms, I’m on the go constantly and at times I struggle to balance these two very important aspects of my life. One of the benefits to my career is flexibility. Although I work all day, every day, I am able to schedule around my family and important events.

I also have a wonderful husband who is very helpful. We work as a team to tackle homework, dinner, chores, etc., and he is often my “alarm clock” to remind me to stop working at a certain time.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve received from another mom?

“Follow through with what you say you’ll do”. Your children will know you mean what you say. It will also improve their trust and respect for you. I actually apply this quote in my personal and professional life.
