Originally from West Granville, Massachusetts, I came to Southwest Florida in 1961 and have been a Florida Realtor since 1975. It has been quite an adventure getting to work with buyers and sellers as they buy or sell their Florida homes and property. In the 1980s I spent a few years with Alliance Mortgage Company and become a vice president over a nationwide inventory of REO and Loss Mitigation. I was able to work with Realtors all over the country as we sold bank owned properties. In 1989 and 1990 we decided to sell a large inventory of homes in the "oil state" using on-site auctions, caravan style. It was a quite a experience to launch this auction event with Daye Realtors and Auctioneers from Louisiana. The auction was a great success and it was wonderful to work with a professonal like Jere Daye. Since 1993 I have concentrated on working with sellers and buyers in Southwest Florida from Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte, North Port, Arcadia, Englewood, Rotonda West and Venice areas. I continue working with many asset managers on REOs as well as helping sellers with Short Sales. The Logan & Atkins team are experienced full time agents and we work hand in hand to list, sell properties whether bank owned or non-distressed sales. In addition to being a full time professional, I also have a passion for leadership and have served as Realtor association President, MLS President, Treasurer, Director, etc. In addition I have served with Florida Realtors as State Director, Auction Marketing Chair, Realtor District Vice President and2012 Florida Realtor Leadership Academy Graduate. My husband and I have grown children and, best of all, 20 grandchildren. We are active in our church where I am a happy volunteer and work with the children ministries. My life is full and overflowing. I am energized with being able to help people sell or buy property as well as serve my community and relish my family and faith.
My years of experience has taken me to years of listing and selling homes from an affordable bungalow to million dollar homes. This area features great waterfrontage and a year round lifestyle of golfing, beaches, beautiful natural resources. The auction experience gave me amazing experience in evaluating and selling everything from commercial buildings and land to homes in every price range. Working with the banks, I have to be their ears and eyes in getting their REOs successfully marketed. Many sellers have an unfortunate situation where they owe more than their property is worth. We work with the seller and the third party banks to get their property sold in a process called "Short Sale." Sometime my job is to make the best of a situation where someone has lost their home or in the process of a short sale as well as working with non-distressed homeowners to sell their home to buy something else or relocate to another area. It is always a joy to help buyers find a great investment, year round home, 2nd home or vacation home.
