Hi! I would like to introduce myself to you.My specialty is single family homes and small Investment properties. I am very good at really hearing what my customers are saying and this is helpful in finding the right property. The part of selling Real Estate that I like the best is matching a Buyer with the perfect property for them. Finding the right Real Estate is like going on a Scavenger Hunt, by listening carefully to the clues a Buyer gives and searching the available inventory for matching property, it is fun to arrive at the best choice with them.
I was a Realtor many years ago in Albuquerque, New Mexico. 32 years later I have "taken up" Real Estate again here in Fort Myers, Florida. In between I have owned many homes and we have bought and maintained Investment Properties from Single Family homes to small Apartment Buildings. We have also owned and managed commercial warehouses and homes in Foreign countries. I am addicted to Real Estate!
Professional Education and Designations
Along with my Florida Real Estate License, I have a Master's Degree in Studio Art from the University of New Mexico and am still a working Artist. I have a Fused Glass Studio and teach classes at the Alliance for the Arts. I also maintain a small wholesale business to select Gift Shops and Galleries around the United States and Canada. My husband and I owned and ran a Gift Manufacturing Business for 27 years, which taught me a lot about sales and service. I also learned about working with a wide variety of people. The people portion ties in well with Real Estate, and the Business background is helpful as well.
Personal / Comments
I grew up in the Panama Canal Zone and have been Bilingual (English/Spanish) lifelong. I moved to the United States to attend college and ended up staying here. Having moved around a bit, I know how important it is to feel comfortable with your home. I am committed to helping people find a home that fits their needs as well as their budgets. If a small Investment property such as a Duplex or small apartment complex or Warehouse is in your plan, I can help you find the best one! I love living in Florida and want to share the experience with you, and I really enjoy talking about, working with and helping people BUY or SELL Real Estate.
