Full company name
Mangrove Realty, Inc. I am the Broker, Founder and Owner
- When did you start?
- Why did you start?
Tell us about your goals
I wanted to offer expanded services to our market. At the time, I was one the first in Florida to negotiate and handle Short Sale Transactions. My current Broker wasn’t familiar with this service and didn’t want me to do it. I knew I could help people at their worst times, and I had to open my own brokerage to have the ability to help these homeowners.
- What motivates you?
Describe your mission passion
Helping people realize and achieve their dreams
- What was the most fulfilling moment that happened to you?
What is it that you love most about what you do?
I am grateful to have experienced many fulfilling moments in my career. The best moments have been saving people from foreclosure and then helping them own a home again years later. I helped them in their darkest times and gave them another chance at the American Dream
- What was the hardest/toughest moment you had to deal with?
Obstacles you faced when dealing with bureaucracy, permits, funding, etc. Something you would like to point out to anyone who might be starting their own organization.
The demise of the South Florida Housing Market. It was a Depression Era for our local area.
- What separates you from the rest? Why you?
Customer service, truly and genuinely caring about people, cutting-edge technology and marketing, and a focus on always improving.
- Are you involved in local community, and if yes, how?
Yes. I am a member of all of the PTA Organizations at my children’s schools in Delray Beach and Boca Raton and sponsor classes at the elementary school. I am also a member of our Local and National Realtor Boards and serve on the ethics committee for the local board.
- Where do you see your business in 5 years?
I want to always be a Boutique Brokerage that is focused on an excellent customer experience so I don’t see us growing much larger in terms of agents at this office. I do plan on opening a duplicate office to service more areas in South Florida.
- Anything else you would like to add?
I love living and selling the South Florida Lifestyle. I have been a resident since 1990, and love welcoming new residents to our paradise!
