I have lived in the "Old Miakka" area on ten acres since 1984 and began my real estate career in 1988. My prior 20 year experience with Aluminum Company of America in accounting and supervison helps me use my commitment of "getting things done right" to benefit sellers and buyers of real estate in our area.

I have expanded my real estate knowledge by meeting the requirements to become a Graduate Residential Sales Council (CRS) and Graduate Florida Realtors Institute (GRI) member and obtained my Brokers License in 2003. With many years of experience, I am confident I can assist you with today's world of "short sales" and "foreclosures" when you are ready to sell or buy real estate.

Call and let's talk about how I can help you in the Manatee or Sarasota market!

I am a Florida native and grew up in the small rural town of Myakka City which provides me with immense knowledge of this wonderful area. I have been selling vacant parcels and country homes since 1997 while working with Barbara Anson Realty.

My husband, Farren, and I own and operate a dairy farm in Myakka and have raised our two children, and now our five grandchildren, on the farm.

Please contact me if you would like more information about real estate in the area.
