Budget and Finance
I have been in Real Estate since 2004, first in Missouri then moving to Florida in 2016 and getting my Broker/Sales Assoicate license.
I have three grown children as well as 6 grand children. I enjoy being active in the community in which I live as well as my local church.
I work extensively with the senior communities although also enjoy working with first time home buyers.
The designations I have are SRES, ABR, and GRI. Continuing to learn all the processes of Real Estate is something I really enjoy.
