MEET THE TEAM
Buying or selling a home can seem daunting at first, but it doesn't have to be. Let my 24 years of experience as a realtor and 44 years of living in south Florida work for you. I work with both residential and commercial properties and have a knack for finding just the right fit for my clients. I am a Certified International Specialist. As I guide you through the process of selling or buying a property, my only objective is your ultimate satisfaction with the end result.
For over 30 years, it has been my honor to assist my sellers and buyers in a professional and courteous manner. So many have been repeat customers and are now also valued friends. Of course, the finest compliments I receive are when they refer their friends and family as they are guaranteed prompt and personal attention until I am successful in helping them achieve their goals.

Great connections resulting in outstanding results for you, the customer! I am committed, enthusiastic and passionate in our joint efforts until you are 100% satisfied.

You can be sure that I will work hard to ensure that we find the house of your dreams or the buyer for your very special home.
I have lived in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl most of my life. I went to school at Norfolk Elementary, Walker Elementary. We moved to Deerfield Florida where I attended Deerfield Middle School and graduated from Pompano Beach Senior High School.
As a young person, I always knew that me career would have a lot to do with helping people. My work experience is as follows:
- General Motors Acceptance Corporation
- Southern Bell Telephone Company
- Landmark Bank, Florida National Bank
- Coastal States Mortgage
- Pat Hance Realty
My goal was to always be the best that I could be with any job, so I worked hard to finally find what my real true niche in life was. When I started in the mortgage business, I felt that I was helping get the loans for the homes that they wanted and I did my best to make it happen for them. As time went by, I expanded my opportunity by working with a great real Estate Company where I am now helping people truly find their dream home. As a Realtor and having the experience in the mortgage business I have now found my true goal.
I am very committed to offering the best quality of service available in my field and I hope after working with me you will feel the same way too.
