Hello and thank you for visiting my agent page. I am a REALTOR® licensed in the State of Florida and began my real estate career in 2001. Shortly after becoming licensed I earned my GRU (Graduate, REALTOR® Institute) and now have over 16 years of experience assisting buyers and sellers in Gainesville and the surrounding areas. I have worked on numerous condo conversion sales teams, receiving the Top On-Site Sales Team award from my company in 2006. I also have a wealth of experience in property management with both residential and commercial properties. I have enjoyed all aspects of real estate and I strive to be the best part of the transaction for my customers. One of the best compliments I have ever been paid was from an owner who once told me that every time we spoke on the phone, no matter the situation, I always sounded like I had a smile on my face. A real estate transaction can be difficult at times and my hope is that every customer, whether their deal is smooth or difficult, walks away feeling great about their purchase, sale or lease. A little about me personally...I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and have lived in South Solon, London, Westerville and Columbus, Ohio. I have also lived in St. Petersburg/Pinellas Park, Florida, Fayetteville, North Carolina and on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. I moved to Gainesville, Florida in 1999 and in doing so found my home. I love Gainesville and all that it and the surrounding communities have to offer their residents. In my free time I enjoy reading, quilting, yard work and family time. As an animal lover, I am the owner of 3 dogs, a tortoise, a bearded dragon, a snake and a few fish :) My husband, Dave Ferro, is also a REALTOR® and is the managing broker of the Watson Realty Corp. NW Gainesville office. We currently handle commercial sales, commercial leasing and commercial property management. We are active real estate investors, classic car enthusiasts and enjoy all of the things that life has to offer with our three children.
