Real estate has always been a passion of mine stemming back to high school when I worked for Palm Coast Plantation as an Assistant Event Coordinator. Through that, I got to witness first hand the expertise, dedication and hard work required to sell Real Estate.
As a life-long resident of Flagler County with 9+ years of Real Estate experience under my belt, I have a wealth of knowledge of this area as well as all the surrounding areas.
While attending UCF to obtain my business degree, I worked at the Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast where I was able to learn the ins and outs of the areas that resort condos, townhomes and amenities.
In 2009 I decided to give sales a shot. Working for a sales outsourcing company as an Office Depot sales rep, I moved to New York City to do door to door sales. NYC was exciting but wasn't home to me, and in 2011 I moved back to Flagler County to pursue my career as a Realtor®.
I've been in Real Estate ever since, helping customers buy and sell their dream homes. I have dealt in nearly all aspects of real estate, from short-sales and foreclosures, to luxury waterfront properties.
In my free time, I enjoy exploring Florida, attending Orlando Magic and Jacksonville Jaguar games, camping at Florida's gorgeous State Parks, snorkeling in the Keys, and checking out theme parks in Orlando.
Let my 9+ years of real estate experience and wealth of knowledge on the area work for you. When you’re looking to buy or sell your dream home give me a call or text.
