The report takes a look back at the last decade of sales activity on the island and breaks it down by on-water and off-water residential type (condo, townhome, single family) to identify market trends.

I have worked primarily in the second-home market since becoming a Realtor® in 2007. My ability to match clients’ spoken and unspoken needs to the service I provide has served both buyers and sellers well. My approach is to provide quality information to clients to assist them in reaching well-researched real estate decisions. Buyers enjoy my use of technology to facilitate productivity even at a distance before embarking on property visits. Likewise, sellers appreciate the data-driven perspective I provide to set realistic and achievable goals.
A native of Pennsylvania, I spent 20 years in Washington, DC working in a major academic medical center before calling our vacation property in West Virginia home. While in West Virginia I engaged in several residential building projects the experiences of which greatly contribute to my understanding of the real estate market and profession. Subsequently my partner of 24 years and I relocated to Tierra Verde, FL, where we enjoy the idyllic environment and diverse community of St. Petersburg and greater Pinellas County.
I am a member of the Pinellas Realtor Organization and the Florida Association of Realtors, and I am a real estate licensee in Florida. Previously I was licensed in West Virginia and Virginia. I possess a bachelor of arts degree in journalism, enjoy photography and graphic design, and frequently will be seen boating on Boca Ciega Bay and the Gulf. In the field of real estate I am an Accredited Buyer Representative and a certified Pricing Strategy Advisor.
