Hi, my name is Deana, I am a native of Gainesville and a fun fact about me is that I was the youngest real estate associate with the Gainesville/Alachua County Board of REALTORS (GACAR) in 1984. I worked with Betty Hilgendorf Real Estate until 1988 and then worked with Steve Campbell Realty until he relocated to Atlanta, Georgia. In 1991 I obtained a broker’s license and opened Deana McLendon Real Estate, Inc.
I decided to change the company name to Auctions & Realty of America, Inc. when I obtained a State of Florida Auctioneers license in 1999. Since then I have been able to offer auctions as an option for sellers. I can assist you with Real Estate or Commercial liquidation. I have been a real estate professional for over 35 years and an auctioneer with 20 plus years experience. I also have a demonstrated history working in and with government.
Recently, I decided to work with Watson Realty Corporation because they have so much to offer to my customers. and I feel that I have a unique perspective that will benefit my customers whether they are buying or selling.
I feel fortunate to have been born and raised here in Gainesville. I appreciate all that Gainesville and the surrounding areas have to offer. Outside of work, I love spending time with my family and friends and I enjoy glamping and traveling, going to the river or beach and taking our boat out fishing, reading and of course, searching for treasures to sell at auction or keep.
I hope you will allow me the opportunity to work with you and help you accomplish your Real Estate goals. Please contact me so that I can get to work for you.
