Our Client-First Philosophy
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how we work.
That said, in our experience as Northeast Florida real estate professional, we have also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting our clients first. This means keeping ourselves accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This "client first" philosophy has always been our approach and it requires us to continually improve our skills and ways of doing business. In addition, we have found that the latest technologies are enabling us to do everything we have always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped us to extend the range of services I provide to our clients.

Throughout my professional career, I have made 3 cross-country corporate moves. Originally from Chicago, IL, I started my career in Network television and spent 8 years specializing in media sales, marketing and business development. I have always had a passion for real estate.
