What’s your favorite aspect of living in Marion County?

What keeps you passionate about real estate?
Helping people find what they’re really looking for, even when they don’t know what it is yet.
What do you do in your spare time?
Go to the beach, love going to the beach! That’s one of the things I like about Marion County, is that you can be at the beach in about an hour. I also like to read and hang out by the pool.
Cats, dogs, or neither?
I have cats, I have dogs, I have a bearded dragon…the only thing I will not allow is spiders!

A seafood cookbook, all three Lord of the Rings books in one volume, and The Hobbit.
