My Story

Born and raised in the cold state of Michigan .. another four years spent in Milwaukee, Wisconsin obtaining a degree in secondary education from Marquette University. Fortunately, in 1973 with two young children the road led to sunny, warm and welcoming Tampa, Florida. 

We never looked back. The weather, quality of education, sporting venues and little leagues galore provided the perfect ingredients in which to raise children. World class amusement parks and fantastic beaches were all within an hours drive .. we had plenty of northern visitors!! 
I have been an active realtor for over 30 years dedicated to helping families relocate and realize their home ownership dreams. I am fortunate to have a career I love in a family community that is "the best of the best." I specialize in acting as a buyer's agent which means I work for you and look after your interest and concerns. 
I enjoy working and helping active and retiring MILITARY service members relocate with their families from Japan, Europe and points beyond ...... my experience and knowledge makes their move hassle-free and enjoyable. MACDILL  Air Force Base is only a 30-minute commute.  FIRST TIME home buyers benefit from my experience as an educator and I easily connect with EMPTY NESTERS and NORTHERN RETIREES looking for a carefree, fun-filled life style in sunny, warm, welcoming Florida. 
I am very knowledgeable about local schools, hospitals, places of worship, shopping, sporting facilities and community affairs. I keep up with all the new projects......zoning, roads, shopping etc. that will have an impact on your families quality of life and your home value ...... builders keep me informed about weekly "special deals and incentives" 
Brandon, Valrico, River Hills, Fish Hawk Ranch,  Water Set, Lithia, South Shore (Apollo Beach),  Plant City, Wesley Chapel, New Tampa, Carrolwood, Northdale are all in my back yard.
