Confidential, Knowledge-based Real Estate Services
These are the services I offer all my clients, whether buying or selling. I work hard and am dedicated to my clients in the purchase and sale of single family residences, vacation homes, investment properties and ready-to-build lots – from sea to tee!
Experience – the kind that comes from years of successfully selling real estate - enables me to handle the most complicated real estate transactions and has allowed me to become a multi-million dollar producer from my first year in real estate. Combining my marketing experience with my insight into the SW Florida area, I have become an expert at creating trouble-free transactions from start to closing for both Buyers and Sellers.
My goal is to make the process of buying, selling, or owning a home efficient, enjoyable and rewarding for you. See what my clients have said about my real estate services...

Who am I?
I was born and raised “down under” in the land of pristine beaches – New Zealand - but I have spent all my adult life in the United States, initially in New York City. My experience of life in the U.S. doesn’t end there, however; I am a veteran mover! I have called home San Francisco, Denver (twice), Houston and Rochester, N.Y., before I succumbed to the call of the beaches of Southwest Florida and headed south.
I discovered the Naples area 25 years ago and since that time my son and I spent the majority of his school vacations soaking up the sun, sand and sea on the beaches of Naples and Bonita before I moved here permanently.
During those years while I lived “up North”, I purchased small older homes and remodeled them into executive residences; co-owned an interior design company, sold high end couture clothing and worked in the Sales and Marketing division of a Fortune 500 company.
Selling real estate in Southwest Florida was a long-term goal of mine. It allowed me to use my years of sales and marketing experience to sell the fascinating array of architectural and housing styles – and lifestyles that accompany these choices - we are so fortunate to have in this area.
