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.

I would like to introduce myself to you and hope I can assist you in buying or selling your next home! I have been active in general Real Estate for 38 years and am a licensed broker in N.C and Florida. In 2002 I moved to the Amelia Island and worked for the developer selling new properties at the Resort at Summer Beach. I have been successful in the resale of many of these properties over the past 16 years. It is also very typical for buyers in the Summer Beach Neighborhoods to move from one property to larger or smaller ones as their lifestyles change.Amelia Island is a special place and home to two resorts, The Resort at Summer Beach with the Golf Club of Amelia and The Ritz Carlton as the anchors, and The Omni at the Amelia Island Plantation. I specialize in locating 2nd homes, primary residences and investment properties at these resorts or elsewhere on the island for my customers. I am available 7 days a week and welcome your calls, email or texts any time.
