I grew up in Real Estate, my dad sold Real Estate and Insurance all of his life in Hagerstown, Maryland where I was born.
Growing up I would help maintain his rental properties, mowing the grass in the summer and doing the snow removal in the Winter.
I left the snow in 1989 when I moved to Englewood, Florida and started selling real estate for Century 21 Gulfwinds in Venice.
I sold my first house at the age of 18. In 1991 I opened ERA Settles/Davis Real Estate with my partners Buck and Bonnie Davis.
Our company was continually the top office in South Venice and in the top 3 offices in all of the Venice area. In 1998 Coldwell Banker NRT, purchased
our company. I then created a top selling team consisting of myself, a buyers agent and an assistant, we represented Coldwell Banker for the next 5 years selling an average of 80 homes per year. From 2002 to Oct of 2011 I was associated with Re/Max Alliance Group. In October 2011 I returned to the ownership of my own brokerage. My Key Logo has a special meaning to me since it was my Dad’s logo when he owned his company “Settles Real Estate” in Maryland.
I have a history of success and integrity in real estate that you can depend on. Having participated in over 2000 career sales in this area, I am an experienced negotiator with expert knowledge of the local market. You can count on me to always work with your interests in mind, and to represent you and your wishes to the best of my ability.
I look forward to working with you!
