My wife, Deidra, and I are the owners of Paradise Property Brokers. After many memorable vacations to the Emerald Coast, we moved to Sandestin from Fayetteville, GA, with our three children. I enjoy coaching my girls in softball and playing golf with my son. My intense work ethic and determination are a winning combination in the Real Estate Industry. I have quickly become one of the area's leaders in sales in a few short years. It is a privilege to work with my clients, and I am honored that they trust me to assist them with such important decisions.
I graduated from Berry College, in Rome, GA, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics. Formerly a computer programmer for Delta Airlines, the leap into Real Estate has been an exciting venture. I realized at an early age that investing in real estate was a pathway to building tremendous wealth. Serving as the Broker of our company is both challenging and rewarding. My job is to provide the necessary support for the Professionals at Paradise Property Brokers. I work for them so that they can work for you!
I was born and raised in Victoria, BC Canada and have traveled and worked exclusively within resort/lifestyle sales throughout the world in destinations such as Whistler,Canada, Palm Desert, and Mexico. My relentless work ethic and strong commitment to getting it right contribute to my success as a consistent top producer. Working with clients within one of the most desirable locations, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, is my passion. As a resident of the resort, I also serve as the President for my HOA Board, while continuing to be an avid golfer alongside my boat captain husband, Franc. As an investor of resort properties for over 30 years,I am committed to professionally assisting others accomplish the same.
After graduating from Auburn University, I pursued a career in education. I taught at Vestavia High School in Birmingham, Alabama until retiring in 1999. My husband and I have owned a vacation home in Destin since 1982. After retiring, we decided to move to the beautiful Emerald Coast, and make it our permanent home. We live in the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, and I believe there is no other place quite like it. I decided to get my real estate license, so that I could help other people find their dream home or condominium. Whether you are looking for a vacation property or a permanent residence, I would love to help you find the perfect place.
After 28 years of service, I retired from IBM where I traveled the world on various international assignments using two foreign languages spoken fluently: French and Spanish. My husband, John and I retired to Destin in 2002 and began our real estate careers. We were fortunate to work with a great,experienced mentor for two years to learn how to be a successful realtor.Because we live in a thriving vacation rental market, in 2006 we opened a Real Estate and Property Management Company,Destin Memories, LLC. After many successful years in the rental management business,we decided to sell the company and focus exclusively on Real Estate Sales. In my free time, I enjoy the beautiful beach and also playing tennis and golf.
