As a proud lifelong resident of the Tampa Bay area, I am passionate about the local real estate market and truly believe the area has something to offer for everyone. My real estate career began in 1996 as a residential appraiser covering Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco Counties. Having completed thousands of real estate appraisals over the years gives me a tremendous advantage over other agents in our area. While most realtors make a "best guess" at the value of a home via a CMA (comparative market analysis), my expertise and experience allow me to deliver the most accurate value of the home you're trying to sell or put an offer on to buy. In 2011 I transitioned to being a full-time Realtor believing my extensive knowledge of the local real estate market could benefit both buyers and sellers. In 2013 I joined Century 21 Executive Team where I quickly became one of its top producers. I am fanatical about my level of customer service, consistently winning Century 21's Quality Service Award while going above & beyond to ensure my clients' real estate needs are met.In addition to my real estate and appraisal experience, I have a solid educational background having earned a BS degree in Finance from the University of South Florida. I believe that my unique skillset allows me to offer my clients distinct advantages and unmatched attention to detail when listing their homes for sale or representing them while buying a home in today's challenging real estate market!
