I have been a licensed Real Estate Agent in Florida and a Realtor since 2008, specializing in the residential sector, servicing both sellers and buyers. I serve Lake, Orange, Osceola, Polk, and Seminole Counties and my professional motto has always been Customer First, Expect No Less. I know the real estate business well, having bought and sold several homes over the years. I sell traditional, foreclosure, and short-sale properties and hold a certification in distressed property sales (CDPE). I am a member of both the National and Mid-Florida Association of Realtors. I was recognized by Orlando Magazine as one of the area's top Realtors for Customer service and support. I was born in the Northeast and have lived in California, Connecticut, Indiana, New York, Texas, and now make my home in Florida. I am married and have three grown Children and three Grand Children. I retired from a Fortune Global 100 company following nearly 33 years in marketing and sales, product technology development and management. I have held key leadership positions for North America and Europe. My formal education includes a B.S. Degree in Chemical Engineering and a Masters Degree in Business and Finance. I have an Executive Leadership Certificate from the Wharton School of Business. I am a certified Leading RE Sales Specialist, Service Expert, Relocation Specialist, and Certified Pricing Specialist.
