My obsession with Gasparilla Island & Boca Grande began the day I first set foot on the island. The old town charm instantly reminded me of growing up in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. My family has been enjoying the island, it’s waterways, it’s restaurants and it’s character for over 10 years and we look forward to a lifetime ahead of us. Our daughter, Sophie, can be found sharing her smiles and giggles at the BG Child Care Center while Mommy & Daddy run the business and care for our youngest daughter Ella.

In 2007, I decided to open my own brokerage and Paradise Cove Properties was born! Today we have 3 local offices covering the Cape Haze Peninsula and its barrier islands. With strategic locations on Placida Road, Gasparilla Road & in the village of Boca Grande, our associates are able to provide great hometown service for our various communities. We have evolved into one of the most aggressive brokerage in the area with rapid structured growth year after year.  We are constantly giving back to the communities we serve and, specifically, in 2015 began an annual event involving recreational cyclists. This new annual event allowed us to raise enough to give away 46 shiny new bikes to kids in need.
