Amy Wessels Bio
Amy Wessels, a native Texan, is excited to be living in beautiful Ponte Vedra Beach. Her passion for real estate began in college when she worked for a real estate firm in Dallas. After receiving a BBA in Marketing and an MBA in Real Estate Analysis, she went on to work in Commercial Real Estate in Cincinnati, Ohio as a Marketing/Research Director and a Retail Leasing Specialist. When her husband’s career moved her to Vermont, she sold vacation homes and condominiums at a ski mountain in the Okemo/Killington region. When not selling real estate, she was perfecting her snow skiing skills as a part-time ski instructor. While living in Vermont, the home renovating and decorating bug bit hard leading her to purchase and run a successful Decorating Den Interiors franchise. Another corporate move took Amy and her husband, Jeff to Boston where they flipped two homes which were highlighted in The Boston Globe Magazine. One of the home renovation projects along with the couple was even featured on a national television show called The Christopher Lowell Show. During her time in Massachusetts, Amy was a regular Column Contributor at The Boston Globe Magazine with a home decorating column called “Simple Solutions” which illustrated creative ideas for enhancing the home.
While raising their daughter Olivia, Amy and her husband relocated again to New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Delaware and now Florida where they plan to stay. Amy believes that part of the fun of moving so often, besides getting to live in some interesting places, was being given the opportunity to transform so many homes--so far, she’s up to 10. She can see the possibilities in the worst of homes and appreciate the design in the best of homes. She has learned how to look beyond appearances and see real value in a home.
Besides real estate and decorating, her interests include oil painting, hiking in the Guana preserve, cooking, and walking on the beach as often as possible. She and her husband also love to travel, take cruises and make many driving trips up North to see their daughter who is a student at The University of Delaware.
