I was born and raised in Ft. Myers, Florida and remained there until marrying my husband, Byron. Since that time we have lived in Georgia, Missouri, Louisiana and Maryland due to his being in the ministry for many years. We have lived in the Jacksonville area for a total of thirteen years and proudly call it home.
I have worked in the legal profession for 30+ years as a legal assistant and paralegal specializing in the area of real estate. I worked with clients who were buying, selling or simply refinancing their homes. Because of that, I feel I have a unique perspective of the entire transaction.
I love kids and for many years have had a concern for the multitude of children in foster care. Byron and I were finally able to become licensed foster parents while living in Pensacola. I'm also a huge animal lover. We currently have one 85 lb dog named Zeus.
I love going to garage sales and thrift stores looking for vintage items or that “diamond in the rough”. The thrill of the hunt is one of the most enjoyable aspects of “thrifting”. Helping customers buy or sell their home brings that same enjoyment to me. I love listening to my customers’ needs and then using every means possible to help them achieve their goals.
Other things that I enjoy doing are working out, walking our dog, bicycling, reading, volunteering in outreach ministries in the community and attending church regularly.
I am originally from Orlando but spent most of my formative years in Southwest Florida in the Gulf Coast town of Fort Myers. It was a great place to grow up, to make friends, and to develop many of the interests that I have enjoyed even into adulthood. While there, I pursued a love of music, which included playing the violin, singing, and the guitar. Living in Florida always afforded us the opportunity of spending a great deal of time outdoors and on the water.
With Linda at my side as my greatest cheerleader, I have served in the ministry as a Youth Pastor and a Senior Pastor for 30+ years. After resigning from a church in the Pensacola area, we moved back to Jacksonville to live with and help take care of Linda’s mother.
I, as many others, was forced to make a career change a few years ago. I enjoy engaging with people from all walks of life and assisting them in achieving their goal of buying or selling.
We have three grown children and are fortunate to have all of them living in the Jacksonville area. All of our children are married. and we have been blessed with 7 grandkids, including triplets born October 2012. We are blessed beyond measure.
Because of our genuine love and concern for others, we are grateful for the opportunities we have as real estate sales associates to work with individuals in achieving their goals. We are proud to be affiliated with Watson Realty Corp. REALTORS®, because of its high standards for character and integrity.
