Real Estate Adviser and Facilitator: I’ve been practicing my profession now for 13 plus years. Beginning as a realtor in "The Kennebunks" on the southern seacoast of Maine, some of my more notable listings have included a dairy farm, The historic Wallingford Hall, a home with its own private airstrip, and a parcel of land which was won in a poker game on an aircraft carrier, somewhere in the South Pacific, during World War II. Now a Florida licensed agent with a cutting edge global company, I work with all types of buyers and sellers; notably foreign nationals, investors, and people relocating to Florida. My current focus is on all types of coastal properties, and navigating customers through transactions, with integrity and honesty.
My real estate experience includes title searches, land development, pro-formas, 1031 Exchanges, and tough negotiations. I am a Certified International Property Specialist, a Dubai International Property Consultant, member of the Pinellas International Council, and hold Transnational Referral Certification. In addition, I was recently recognized as a real estate partner by Muscat Bay, The Sultanate of Oman.
Furthermore, I sometimes tutor Spanish, and hold a Master’s Degree in the Teaching of Foreign Languages. I formerly taught in both public and private schools, created and marketed jewelry, imported amber, sold gemstones and performed appraisals for Boston’s Newbury Street 'Carriage Trade'. In 1980, I received a diploma from the Gemological Institute of America, Santa Monica and am certified to identify and grade, diamonds and colored gemstones.
I value my family and friends; many whom I’ve made during my career and travels.
Where am I from? -not sure anymore. I was born in Philadelphia, lived on the Italian Riviera, France, Mexico, Spain, California, Massachusetts, Maine, and in Florida the longest of all. I moved here for the sea, and to spend more time in the great 'out of doors'. When not out selling real estate, you might easily find me in a garden, 'The Trail', or swimming at Clearwater Beach.
