I specialize in assisting buyers and sellers in Brevard County with most of my emphasis placed on the Melbourne/Palm Bay area. As an agent living in this local area since 2001, I bring knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. When looking for a home, I will listen to the essential criteria and neighborhood amenities that appeal to you so we can find your ideal home. When it’s time to move, I will render home selling tactics to help you get top dollar and actively market your home to its ideal audience.
Being born and raised in northern Maine, I moved “south” to the Boston area to attend schools for my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Psychology and Education. After teaching there for 8 years, I traded in the cold and snowy New England winters to move much further south for the warm and beautiful Florida sunshine. I continued my education career here in southern Brevard County while I also began to have a heightened interest in real estate. Shortly after that, I bought my first small piece of land and have been growing an investment portfolio ever since by flipping and managing my rental properties. Once completing 25 years in a school setting, I started the next chapter in my life by retiring from education to fully pursue my ever-growing passion of real estate.
This passion lead me to becoming a part of the team at EXIT 1st Class Realty. I’m proud to be with a company dedicated to the successful growth of each agent through its vast training and ongoing support. EXIT Realty is also recognized as a hands-on, customer-orientated company that supports various charities throughout the year, including Toys for Tots and Habitat for Humanity. EXIT 1st Class Realty respectfully honors all members of the military, first responders, nurses, and teachers as part of our Brevard Heroes program. It’s a way for us to show these home buyers and sellers our appreciation for what they give to our community. I would love the opportunity to explain this program in detail with you and how we give a percentage of our own personal commission back to you as cash at closing.
The exposure of buying and selling my own properties, coupled with my training and education experience, has provided me with valuable skills beneficial in effective marketing techniques, contract negotiations, overseeing inspections, and fulfilling all avenues necessary to ensure a prosperous sale. No one understands the value of helping others like a teacher and no one teaches the value of owning a home like a REALTOR®. Merging my two careers enables me to educate and guide home buyers and sellers through every step of the process for a smooth and carefree transaction. I look forward to helping you start the next chapter in your life by turning your dream into your home.
