Those that know me well, know I've long been an avid real estate hobbyist. From the outside in, residential real estate is my favorite - I love digging in and getting the history of a particular property as well as explore it's physical character. In 2008 I dove in and became a licensed real estate agent in the Atlanta, GA area....learning the Metro Atlanta area at the peak of the downturn in real estate - Atlanta was one of the hard hit areas...along with Tampa & Las Vegas. I then took what I learned in Atlanta and relocated to Dallas, TX. The Dallas Metroplex Area is a thriving market - new home building , resale and many relocation's to the area. I teamed up with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate on the administrative end. Everyone knows the Better Homes and Gardens Brand....I mean, who's Grandmother or Mom didn't have a subscription to the monthly printed publication- it was almost a right of passage amongst homeowners when setting up their "nest"....and remains so still today. That is just one of the many reasons, upon my return to the Sunshine State, that I partnered up with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, again! I feel like I've not only come home to the Tampa Bay Area again BUT I've come "HOME" to Better Homes and Gardens - Ellie & Associates as a licensed agent. While my job may be assisting in selling and purchasing real estate, my heart is all about building relationships....your real estate sale or purchase is much more than just a transaction to me. I love getting acquainted with and getting to know who I'm working with. Not only does it allow you the opportunity to feel comfortable with one of the biggest financial transactions you may experience but it helps me assist YOU better and be there every step of the way....the way it should be. If you're looking to buy or sell real estate or even just need information on the area, backed with the HOME of real estate, I'd love to talk to you!. You do not need to reside or be searching in the Tampa Bay area - I have access to a great network of professionals that can assist you, wherever you are. For those of you that are lucky enough to call the Tampa Bay Area home OR are looking to call it home...It would be my pleasure to get to know and work with you!
