Claire was raised on a farm full of ponies, horses, and four siblings in Amherts, Nova Scotia after her parents emigrated from England. Show Jumping has been a life-long passion for Claire, and she has competed avidly along the East Coast and in Canada. In fact, she met her husband, Carl, while competing in the Winter Equestrian Circuit in Wellington, Florida, and they married in 1985. Together, they moved to the States and built up a large breeding business and farm, dividing their time between Maryland and Pennsylvania. In addition to horses, Claire has a passion for singing and music is a big part of her life.
Ocala became home for Claire and Carl in 2004. In 2012, Claire entered the real estate industry and accomplished Rookie of the Year in 2013, awarded by OMCAR for agents exceeding 1 million in sales in their first year. Since then, she has earned the title of Top Producer several times. Claire’s passion for her customers and her expertise in equestrian properties make her an invaluable asset to those looking to buy and sell an equine property of any size.
