In my professional career I have traveled extensively, and had lived in southern and northern California for the last 15 years. In 2012, I traded my Southwest A-List card for a lifestyle in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. Having graduated from Fletcher High School and PV-PV Elementary, my memories of the beaches and Jacksonville are very different from the present landscape. The good news is despite the changes and growth, my children and grandchildren can still enjoy our beautiful beaches and abundant nature preserves.
Together with my husband, we enjoy tennis and a very active outdoor life. We participate in TGA Tennis which is an organization that takes tennis to the schools so that all children can have an opportunity to play. With a new real estate career, I can continue to use my financial consulting experience and participate in the continued prosperity of our community.
After graduating from the University of North Florida with a B.S. in Accounting, I was hired as a tax associate with Coopers & Lybrand in 1985. My interaction with all types of corporate clients gave me the basic training and desire to pursue a career in financial consulting. Most corporate balance sheets include some type of real estate, and I learned how to handle real estate transactions to maximize profit and minimize taxes whenever possible.
For the majority of individuals, personal real estate is their most valuable asset. As a financial consultant I would advise and make recommendations based on their specific real estate holdings. Through the years I have witnessed both booms and busts in the real estate market, but real property is a tangible asset that always survives.
Having grown up on the beaches of North Florida, I know all too well the ebb and flow of real estate wealth. Professional experience of business cycles led me to form my own brokerage firm, Northeast Florida Commercial Real Estate. As Jacksonville and the North Florida coast continue to grow and prosper, I want to help clients participate in the real estate opportunities that are present in the current business environment.
