For many, the pull of the emerald waters and sunshine of Northwest Florida are too much to deny. I could not agree more.
In 2004 I moved to the Panhandle with a degree in Real Estate and Mortgage Appraisal Financing from Mississippi State after selling property in Mississippi during college. As a child, I spent vacations along the sugary shoreline each year and witnessed the amazing growth in Destin, FL and Scenic Hwy 30A. I grew up in Germantown, TN, where my parents still live today.
Once my parents and I discovered 30A and they invested in Seagrove Beach, I realized this was no longer only a great vacation destination but my new home. Scenic 30A is the 17-mile stretch of white sugary beaches between Destin and Panama City. Quaint beach communities line this stretch of Paradise each with their own charm. 30A has the largest concentration of rare coastal dune lakes in the world and 40% of the land is preserved for nature making it a wonderful place to spot wildlife.
I am a licensed Broker Associate, specializing as a buyer's expert selling luxury real estate, second homes and investment property along 30A, which include Seaside, WaterColor, WaterSound, Alys, Seacrest, Grayton, Rosemary and Seagrove (to name a few), as well as Sandestin and Destin. I pride myself in providing a unique blend of service that will guide you through successful real estate investing. Helping our customers create wealth through 1031 tax exchanges is one of our specialties.
My husband and business partner, Andy, is also a licensed Broker Associate. Andy grew up in Lake Forest, IL, and graduated from Auburn. Andy specializes with sellers to list and sell their properties, as well as walking our customers through the closing process.
Andy and I have a proven track record selling luxury Florida real estate and 2020 marks my sixteenth year here. 2019 was our most successful year personally and professionally. We closed over $37.8 million in luxury real estate here in Florida and while we were celebrating our eleventh wedding anniversary we found out we were expecting two baby girls! 2018 was an amazing year as well with over $43 million sold in 2017-2018. In 2016, Andy and I sold more than $33 million in luxury real estate with another $27 million in 2015, $27 million in 2014 and more than $21 million in 2013. In 2012, Andy and I sold $24.5 million (59 properties), another $25.5 million in 2011 (nearly 50 properties), $17.4 million in 2010, and more than $19 million in 2009. Our experience in the local market provides our customers an excellent advantage when investing here in FL.
My enthusiastic and aggressive approach provide a determined and focused Realtor who is committed to helping you buy or sell your slice of paradise. I hold the CRS and CDPE designations. The Certified Residential Specialist is the highest designation awarded to sales associates in the residential field.
I feel blessed to have found my passion in life and would love the opportunity to work with you. Some of my interests in addition to real estate include Pilates, cooking and baking, traveling, and our Catholic faith. Together, my husband and I provide a great team!
