I have always been very interested in Manatee and Sarasota Real Estate. Originally from Rochester, New York, I moved to Florida in 1979. My love for gardening and landscaping Real Estate Properties began with completing my A.S. Degree in Ornamental Horticulture. Attending college in Gainesville was very exciting as I was a true UF fan – Go Gators! My longing for the West Coast Beaches brought me to the Bradenton- Sarasota area. I saw that my landscaping talents would be useful in the Real Estate Business. It is so enjoyable to take an unattractive piece of land and make it eye catching. It’s very satisfying to help Sellers bring great curb appeal to their home and also for Buyers to make a creative, beautiful garden for the home they have just purchased.

In addition to Real Estate, Landscaping and Gardening, my other passion is caring for animals. I started volunteering at the Racing Dog Retirement Project in 1998 and have adopted several Greyhounds throughout the years. Pictured with me in the photo above is Daisy. She is a very sweet girl and my husband, Mark, and I are so happy to have her as part of our family.

It is my pleasure to make a donation to the Racing Dog Retirement Project after each Real Estate Closing I have in 2016. To learn more about the project, please click here
