Having grown up in Tampa with roots three generations deep, it gives me great pride and pleasure to represent homes in the Tampa Bay area. I remember from a very young age my grandfather, Gus, buying and selling homes and lots. He not only did it as his own hobby, but he also loved to help his family and friends find a home or property to build their new home on.
My father, who is also a licensed real estate agent, has owned and rented property all up and down the Gulf Coast and throughout the Bay Area. Watching him all my life has instilled in me the belief that customer satisfaction starts with listening carefully to client needs and then applying solid market knowledge. He showed me that formula is paramount to being a good Realtor. With this background, I have always been interested in following the real estate market and especially in knowing property values in diverse areas of Tampa.
The market is changing, and clients have become much more sophisticated. My goal is to stay ahead of the market and ahead of our clients (not easy to do). To do that, I am always working to improve my skills and knowledge to give you top-level service. As a licensed Realtor, I have taken several advanced courses. I recently achieved the very special designation as a Graduate, Realtor Iinstitute (GRI), a designation for Realtors that indicates a higher level of training and knowledge. The knowledge I gain from pursuing further real estate education beyond basic licensing courses broadens my ability to serve you. Serving you and making sure you have a good experience are my top goals. It is never too much trouble to go the extra mile to get the expertise and understanding that allow me to serve you better.
