Growing up in Venezuela, my brothers and I couldn’t wait to pile in Dad’s Range Rover, leave the city behind and head to the beach. The sand, the waves, the beautiful color of the Caribbean are among my favorite childhood memories. Our family moved to Lakeland, FL in the 1980s and began trips to the East and West Coast of Florida to find beaches like those we had known. In 1983 we drove over the Cortez bridge and “discovered” Coquina beach. Once we felt the flour sand under our feet, the breezes coming through the shade of Australian pines, palm trees and the beautiful water, we knew we had found our place.
After getting married, I moved with my husband and our son to Connecticut, Chicago, Atlanta, and Tampa. Regardless of where we lived, we always felt the draw of the Island and found ourselves coming back again and again. In 2001, we bought our first home on the Island, became locals and made friends with some of the best (and most unique) people we’ve ever met. We moved to a larger home on a canal and had a great time raising our son, kayaking and biking, and enjoying all that is Anna Maria Island.
I became a real estate agent in 2007 to help others find their little piece of paradise for themselves or for investment. I’d be honored to help you find yours.
