“Life is Good” After almost 50 “award winning” years, I still feel the excitement at each closing. We came to Florida years ago, before McDonalds and Stop Lights. We settled with our seven children in “Farm Country” and worked hard to prove you can be successful even in small towns. Our Franchise Real Estate business was truly a winning success, but with my husband’s illness changes happened and I came to Rainbow Springs, becoming one of the owner/agents of Rainbow Springs Realty Group, Inc. Business continued to be award winning. Rainbow Springs was a pioneer in introducing our community to an active younger generation. The awesome Crystal Clear Rainbow River with its numerous springs attracted folks looking or natural beauty and they found it here.

Loving real estate and work at Rainbow Springs along with my positive attitude and “can do” spirit made me a “Go to Realtor”

My seven wonderfully successful children have made me proud. As I look back on all these years, I don’t think I could have chosen a more challenging, exciting, and rewarding career.

As an owner/agent it is rewarding to see our business grow and prosper.
