I had been in sales for many years before I became a licensed Realtor in 2004. This career is the one that I love because it gives me the opportunity to shower my customers with detail-oriented service in finding the right home to meet their needs, and those customers typically become personal friends. This level of service has made me a consistent multi-million dollar producer. As a mother of two and grandmother, I enjoy the time I spend with my family, and volunteering and supporting Give Kids the World, Boy Scouts of America, Red Cross, Latin America Childcare, and the Children's Miracle Network.
Fine Homes and Estates Designation
I have been licensed in Real Estate in Florida since 1988, serving Central Florida for 20 years and a Florida resident since 1971. My experience has been in new home sales with a great knowledge of construction and green sustainability. The last 3 years I have worked in General Real Estate and have enjoyed it very much. I have been most successful in connecting each homebuyer with a home that truly fits their needs, which enables families to enjoy their home which is the biggest financial transaction they may ever make. I achieve this by listening carefully to the needs
of each customer and learning the criteria before beginning the search. It is important to deal with each customer the exact way that I, personally, want to be dealt with when I make a purchase.
My Family and I have lived in Celebration since 1999 and love our home and the town of Celebration.

Being in Real Estate for quite sometime has continuously motivated me to seek opportunities that could lead to innovation, preparation and success. Transitioning to Century21 Premium Properties is not only an exciting opportunity but also a smart decision in a market that increasingly requires us to have the latest tools and continuing training to serve Central Florida's unique market. As a current Real Estate Broker Associate and Accredited Luxury Home Specialist, working in prestigious communities such as in Celebration, Gotha, Windermere, Orlando, Dr. Phillips, Winter Garden and many more of Central Florida's jewels I perceive the many important needs of an ever evolving complex market.
My past experiences as a history school teacher, marketing coordinator, as well as purchasing my first home have all served to shape my winning philosophy of being a service provider to all and not just another sales person. I know first hand, originally being born in Brazil, how transitioning to a new home, whether it be someone's first purchase or simply a vacation house, how difficult it can be not having the proper guidance in the process.
I believe that part of my current and future success in Century21 Premium Properties will come from my experience with balancing life's personal and work intricacies. Being a mother of 3 and a wife, striving to help others is a natural part of my everyday life and purchasing a home is an intimate process. Residential Real Estate provides you with the opportunity to meet families, spend time with them and instinctively striving to help them. All of these things are important because if you are doing what you enjoy everyday, whether it be looking for properties, listing a home, meeting new families, your efforts show and you feel you have accomplished the goal of being a service provider to all.
I fell in love with the homes in Celebration and around Central Florida even before I moved here. After more than 30 successful years in medical sales, I realized quickly that I wanted to turn my attention to real estate. Efficient, effective, organized and motivated every day to help you find your ideal home, I can help make the process easier, more enjoyable, even fun for you and your family. I'm always on the hunt for making your dream home come true, even during my daily bike rides of 10 to 20 miles. When not out listing and selling, I volunteer my time at my local church and, at least a few times every year, drive to the coast to take advantage of our state's beautiful beaches.
Originally from Chicago Illinois, I moved to Central Florida in 1988. In early 2004, I moved from the Dr. Phillips area of Orlando to the beautiful town of Celebration and lived in the Downtown Village until my home in Artisan Park was completed in early 2006.
As a resident of Central Florida for over 20 years, I care a great deal about our community, I strongly support our local businesses and I do as much volunteer work as I can to further support and strengthen our community.
Being associated with CENTURY 21 Metro Lifestyles is something that has been extremely rewarding for me.
