Both Tina and I are members of the National Association of REALTORS®. This means that we follow a strict code of ethics and held accountable for our ethics by our peers. We have both served as Presidents of our local association and are active in MLS and other committees of the association.
We've lived on Amelia Island for 18 years, having relocated from New Jersey. That means that Tina is a southern lady and I'm more direct in my approach, which works well for us. I think the best thing about our practice is that most of the people we've worked with have become very good friends. The close relationships we've formed mean that most of our business is done by personal referral. It also means that many of my buyers and sellers have also bought investment properties and business opportunities from me.
I'm always looking for agents with the same philosophy of excellent service and follow up for referral opportunities.
Grace holds the CRS designation, so our primary interest is residential sales. However, living on a small barrier island means participating in commercial sales, which we do once or twice a year.
Active listening is a well-honed skill which allows me to zero in on what the customer's needs really are. Knowing our market makes it easy to match the customer to the property. Having Tina, my youngest daughter, as a partner means that we can span a large demographic of buyers and sellers. Sometimes, having a younger point of view is an asset. At other times, my more seasoned viewpoints save the day.
Our areas of expertise include waterfront property and golf course communities. There's something for everyone on Amelia Island. Two of my specialties are pre-retirement buyers and investment property. We also handle a good number of relocation services and 1031 exchanges, though not as many as before the current market correction.
