YOUR REAL ESTATE CHALLENGES ARE MINE! Prior to Real Estate, I was a nurse Educator in a variety of capacities and settings. Providing knowledge so that the learner has the tools to understand and to reach logical conclusions independently, was the foundation of my personal philosophy. It still is today. Whether you're a Buyer or a Seller, I'll keep you well informed of the process, so that in the end, you'll feel confident that you made the very best decisions. During my career as a Realtor, which began in the end of 1988, I've for served for several years on the Grievance Committee, and then the Professional Standards committee. Gaining trust and respect through diligence and high ethical standards is the highest reward that can be achieved as a Real Estate professional. Because of my many years in Real Estate, I'm familiar with the many beautiful and diverse areas of Duval and St Johns counties. I'' always excited to find a perfect match for Buyers that fit their lifestyle. It is also very rewarding to be able to direct first time home Buyers to the very best loan originators so that they can receive expert financial guidance and assistance. I can also provide information on a program geared to recession weary home buyers that might enable them to live in and enjoy the home that they want NOW by leasing it, with an opportunity to buy it when the time is right. I especially love nature and enjoy tending to my beloved Florida swamp that surrounds my home and is adjacent to the Guana River Wildlife Management Area, which is a part of the Guana, Tolomato, Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve and is located about a half a mile from the ocean. I've campaigned vigorously to prevent this unique pristine area from development. For a description of this remarkable area, go on line to Guana River Wildlife Management. I'm here to make your Real Estate challenges mine!
