Meet the Team
Marty, my husband, and I were both caught up in the day to day rat race of managing multiple companies in NC. All the time believing there was more to living than just work and paying bills. Our kids had married, moved away and there was nothing else keeping us in that location. We both desired the warm climate, island feel and things to do. We wanted shorts, flip flops and toes in the sand… My husband’s moto is “Love where you live and live where you love” This is how we began our adventures… We started driving on A1A and stumbled into the Island. We feel in love with the area and returned to visit many times. Amelia Island reminds me of SC where I grew up. The people are kind, inviting and no one acts like they own the island.
There are grand looming oak trees, filled with moss and lots of water around. The down town has the farmers market on Saturdays and the tree lined streets with brick work at the intersections I just knew this was Home. It took us about a year and a half to tie up all the loose ends and move. We moved and I liad low for about one year but could not sit still any longer… I had three state licenses, so I figured one more would not hurt. But, I was going to do things a little different this time… I wanted a company that represented my season in life and this is how we came up with Island Life Realty Amelia.
I was born and raised in Devils Lake, North Dakota and made my way to the south as a teenager where I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology. I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Duran, for almost 25 years and have two awesome kids. We moved to Fernandina Beach from Atlanta in 2012 – talk about the best decision of our lives!
I found I was professing my love for this amazing place I call home to anyone that would listen which is ultimately what led me to become a REALTOR. Combining my passion for where I live with 20+ years of experience in technology & data analytics resulted in an authentic, fact-based approach to selling real estate. My only measure of success is based on the long-term relationships I have developed – not the number of transactions I’ve done. At the end of the day, it’s about YOU and whether or not you are proud to share my name as YOUR agent.

Hi, I’m Lindsay, and I can’t wait to meet you! In 2014, I left everything I’d ever known, and moved to Amelia Island. I am thankful every day for this decision! My parents, who discovered Amelia Island 15+ years prior, had just retired here and it didn’t take much convincing for me to follow them to this charming town. They raised my brother and me in the beautiful suburbs of Clarksville, Maryland. After college, I spent my early adult years working in the fitness industry, and dabbling in every side job I could fit into my schedule, all the while searching to find a true passion. I grew to dread the cold Maryland winters, and felt suffocated by the over-development of our once quiet town. I was ready for a change, and Amelia Island was exactly what I needed.
Living on Amelia Island has opened my eyes to the powerful impact of loving where you live. My mornings went from wondering how long I’d sit in traffic on my daily commute, to wondering if I should make my coffee before or after I hit the beach for sunrise. We often take for granted the beauty that surrounds us every day, but here on Amelia, it’s different. The people of our town have craftily woven an appreciation for our island into every day life, and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.
As if moving to paradise weren’t enough, I wound up meeting the love of my life, Marton, who shares my vision for our life here on Amelia Island. Together, we own and operate a comprehensive property management business, specializing in providing peace of mind to those managing home ownership from a distance. My strengths in interpersonal communication and attention to detail, paired with my experience in property management, and home staging, are what drove me to get my Real Estate License in 2016. I am truly fortunate to work with a team of knowledgeable, experienced, and friendly professionals at Island Life Realty. I can’t wait to help you discover how Amelia Island can change your life too!
