Thank you for reading my bio I hope you will enjoy all the information I provided.

I have had a love for real estate since I was a little girl. My father built homes and I was always around helping him. Once I was older I decided to obtain my real estate license and help people with obtaining their dream of owning a home. I decided to become a realtor for Indiana and Illinois and worked with a company named McColly Better Homes and Gardens. I had great mentors and learned a lot about the real estate market for existing homes and new construction.

I moved to Florida in 1998 and started to rehab homes in the Clearwater area. I enjoyed taking tired sad homes and making them come alive once again. When I completed a house I needed to find a family to make the house a home. So I had to go back to real estate state school to get my Florida Real Estate License. Once I received my license I continued to take classes so I can be the best I can be to make sure I provide the best customer service possible.

The greatest satisfaction I receive is seeing the faces of new homeowners as I hand them the keys to their new home. I love working with all types of clients, from First Time Home buyers to empty nesters and people relocating to Florida.

I was born in Harvey Illinois and at age 13 moved to South Holland, Illinois where I lived for 25 years. I graduated in 1970 from Thornridge High School, in Dolton Illinois, home of the Falcons. Than in 1990 I moved to Crown Point Indiana than to Dyer Indiana. I have two Sons who live in Dyer Indiana one is a Chrysler Mechanic and the other is a Cost Analysis for NiSource. I was blessed to also have a beautiful daughter-in-law and three grandsons.

My other passion is decorating cakes. I love to use my talents creating specialty cakes and cupcakes for any occasion. I also lobbied to get the Cottage Food Law passed on July 1 2010 it Governor Scott sign it into law. This law allows people who have a baking or cooking passion to have a home based business and sell to the public. For more information about the Cottage Food Law, go to
