There’s nothing wrong with saving a few cents here or there, but when it comes to seeking medical help, building a decent stock portfolio, or dealing with something as ugly as an IRS audit, it’s better to seek out a professional’s advice.

Buying or selling real estate also fits in that category.  Remember, you’re dealing with one of the largest assets you’ll ever own!  Don’t waste time doing it the “self-service way.”  This is an important and life-affecting decision!  To insure a fast sale for top dollar or to find a home that matches your criteria for a reasonable price, work with a seasoned professional.

I have nearly 11 years of experience working with buyers and sellers right here in Marion County, and I’ve earned several of the advanced learning designations available to real estate agents.  In fact, I’m one of just a few agents in the area with a broker’s license.  What does that mean for you?  My advanced education and experience helps me zero in on your highest priorities, create innovative and effective marketing programs guaranteed to attract attention to your home, and put transactions together for a worry-free closing day.

I have lived in the Salt Springs area since 1986, and my family has owned property on Lake Kerr & vacationed here since the early 70’s. I have a passion and desire to be the TOP RESIDENTIAL REALTOR® in the area.

Over the years, I have helped hundreds of families buy and sell real estate.  I will be happy to provide you with a long list of satisfied clients who attest to my professionalism, my expertise, and my attention to every detail.
