How I Ended Up In The Keys...

Similar to many resort areas, there are very few natives (here in the Keys we call them 'Conchs'). I am always interested in learning how people end up in the Keys. I hope you enjoy my story as well.

I learned to scuba dive while living in San Diego in the mid 1980's. When I was transferred back to my native state, New Jersey, my husband and I took frequent trips to the Florida Keys. With each trip to the Keys we fell in love with the area more and more... eventually purchasing a home in Islamorada in 1991.

Just like people before us, the allure of the blue clear water, the fish, the relaxing environment kept tugging at us until we made the final 'sacrifice' and moved to the Florida Keys full time.

As events had it, I had a wonderful opportunity to learn about the marine environment by volunteering to work with marine scientists associated with the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. My dedication to the marine environment led to a few awards that include:

The Nature Conservancy Volunteer of the Year Award - 2000, Florida Chapter

The Ocean Conservancy Leave a Legacy Award - 2002

NOAA Environmental Hero Award - 2003



I currently balance my wonderful real estate career with a handful of volunteer opportunities. One I am particularly proud of is working with the local high school Marine Studies Program where I teach and mentor students on coral reef assessment.

As you get to know me, you will find out that I leave no stone unturned. I listen to you to learn your needs, wants, and ultimate financial objectives. We discuss and communicate throughout the whole process.

When you hire me to work with you, my goal is to meet and exceed your expectations. Working as a professional in real estate, my desire is to 

Educate - Minimize Your Risks - Maximize Your Profits

I look forward to speaking with you!
