My Story

A gator to the core, I graduated with a degree in business from the University of Florida in Gainesville.  Upon graduation, I moved back to Tampa and worked for a national home builder, then another and finally, Lennar.   During that time, I closed over $80.3 million in residential real estate sales.

Residential real estate is a great world to learn how the combination of many details and high emotion can derail a deal.  And while the homes are fun, and the process rewarding, it was not using my primary passion for business, nor the degree I earned.  Becoming a business broker takes the transactional excitement of selling and buying real estate into the business realm of selling and buying a business.



I have always been intrigued with Real Estate and businesses as a kid.  My family owned businesses (home health care, dance studios, etc) when I was young and also had friends that invested in RE.  I am investing in RE now, too.

The skills you use in real estate are deployed similarly in business brokerage –

  • Active listening,
  • Followup,
  • Negotation,
  • Finding something that fits buyers’/sellers’ criteria,
  • Meticulous management of the details

Add to that a keen business acumen and market analysis and you have the business broker definition.

I recently completed the successful sale of a three building, industrial investment complex with Dave Decamella of Transworld Business Advisors. Dave’s communication skills and attention to detail were instrumental in closing the transaction. We look forward to working with Dave again in the future.
