I started my Real Estate Career in 1987 learning my craft and honing my skills along the way elevating my license to Broker status. I worked hard and was the number one agent in the County for many years. In 2001 I opened my own company, 1ST Choice Realty Service, and drove it to the number one office in the County for 8 years. We had a large property management department, a title insurance company, and a mortgage company. We eventually sold it to Prudential Tropical Realty. A fantastic forward-thinking company with 22 offices across Tampa Bay with large Commercial and Property Management Departments. Prudential Tropical Realty was highly regarded as a premier company in Tampa Bay and certainly enjoyed local and national recognition. It was the perfect move at the perfect time for the best company, it allowed me to concentrate solely on my clients. In 2014, Prudential Realty was bought by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, one of the most respected and admired companies worldwide. That positioned us, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices FLORIDA PROPERTIES GROUP, for even more success in OUR corner of the Real Estate World, No one can argue with Warren Buffett’s business sense and track record for success. I am a very proud grandmother of 12 and great grandmother to 8. I am very family-oriented. Not much time for hobbies with my business and family but I do love to travel and make and enjoy making wine it is a family affair. After all these years I still love helping folks buy and sell Real Estate and I am VERY good at it. I am ranked in the top1/2 OF THE TOP 1% of all Berkshire Hathaway Agents nationwide.
