Here is a little bit about me...
I am a transplant from Delaware and I grew up in Philly. I've lived in Lee County, Fl. for over 20 years traveling throughout the state becoming familiar with this area, surrounding areas and a few other parts of Florida.
My background is diverse. I spent my early years and education in Engineering & Procurement. I worked for the Federal Government for almost 14 years until I retired on disability. During my time working I enlisted in the Air National Guard. I also attained a Class A CDL and learned to drive a truck. I actually drove an Oil Tanker in Oklahoma for a short time.
A few years after my retirement, I followed my Mom to Florida and became a "Snow-Bird" and lived in her retirement community with her. Finally in 2008 I decided to make Florida my new home so I sold my house in Delaware and Found a little House here.
I'm an Artist and I love Architecture, and nature so as a hobby I raise butterflies. I designed and helped build a patio for my yard and a butterfly habitat throughout the front and back yards. My Habitat that I virtually from a blank palette, is registered as a Monarch way-station in Florida. My other personal interests are Philadelphia sports, even when we lose, watching The Walking Dead, following Earth Wind & Fire concerts when I can and I'm a Trekkie. I love interacting with people & kids so I set up at a huge craft show once a year in March, and another children's event around Halloween to give out candy and gifts.
I like yard-sailing and antiquing when I have time. I also enjoy my job. I find it "Fun and Exciting" and I derive great pleasure when I see someone walk into their "Dream House". The best part is when we get to work together to make that "Dream House" their New Home.
I work throughout Lee County Florida and extend west to parts of Hendry, south to parts of Collier County and north to parts of Charlotte County. I am patient, honest, friendly and have a sense of humor. I will work with any human to help them List or Buy a property. When friendly Martians land, I will probably work with them too. I am Continually in training and am currently working on my Graduate Realtor Institute Designation.
I List and Sell Single Family Homes, Condos, Multi-Family properties, Lots and Acreage. I am licensed to List and Sell Small Businesses as a Business Broker and Commercial Properties.
I am sometimes an overly honest person who may say what I think. And not lie. As a person with a sense of humor who tends to Love Life and Love the Lord as well, I will try to work with anyone even those with no sense of humor.... My goal... Pass my smile along to anyone without one.
I hope you like what you've read and Please Feel free to give me a call.
