Except for a short time, I have been a lifelong resident of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The heart of the Midwest!
I have visited Naples for 30 years, as my parents live here. Once the last college bound child hit the University of Iowa in 2001, I hit the road!
I brought with me over a decade of experience in Real Estate, excellent education, and a broad range of interests to jump into the Naples scene with gusto! I "speak" golf and tennis, theater and dance!
In Naples, you will find that nearly everyone is from somewhere else! As a result, your friendships will span the nation and globe, with immediate contacts in England, Germany, France, the East Coast, and the Midwest! Once visitors have experienced Naples, they want to call it home, and then "visit" where they originate from! I am no different, and have tried to learn as much about the town and all it´s history and activities to feel like a native!
I promise you a city tour to help you fall in love with the flavor of Southwest Florida, from the lure of the beaches, morning and sunset, to the different types of golf (equity or bundled). May I interest you in the gourmet flavors that abound, from food to entertainment?
As an active community volunteer in Iowa, I worked on Junior League fundraising events, the Cancer Crusade, March of Dimes, and Kidney foundation drives, and was extremely active in the school committees involving sports (football, basketball, track); cheerleading; and 4 years of showchoir productions, Concert Choir, and Madrigal Singers!
Naples has already found a nitch for me in the Naples Players Theater, where I have volunteered to advance their enthusiastic cause! I just haven´t gotten on stage. Not always a bad thing! I am also involved in the Make-A-Wish Foundation, pulling on my background of working with children.
My educational background spans a multitude of areas, but all concentrate on improving my real estate performance. It includes:
- BA degrees in Psychology and Vocational Rehabilitation from the University of Northern Colorado
- Mediation Seminars for the Iowa Farmer-Creditor Mediation Services
- Real Estate License in Iowa, 1988
- Graduate of the Realtor´s Institute (GRI) 1992
- Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) 1994
- Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) 1999
- Licensed Broker-Associate, Florida, 2001
As you can tell by my "personal resume", we will become friends as well as business associates. I enjoy teaching my customers Real Estate-ese so that you can make an educated decision regarding your first or second home, or your new rental property. The market in Naples is excellent, and truly is a beautiful Paradise! With year-round tropical temperatures and deep blue skies, I hope that you will agree that I provide
"Midwest warmth in the Naples sunshine"!
