After an exceptional career with several leading Fortune 100 companies including the Mars Corporation, Disney Consumer Products, Levi Strauss and others, Lisa’s navigated the real estate industry with ease allowing her the opportunity to become a successful global real estate advisor with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty.
“I represented the most recognized brands in the world, so when I embarked on my real estate career, it was important for me that I align both my personal beliefs in client relationships and the dominant brand leader, Sotheby’s International Realty.”
Lisa’s expertise can help a client find a perfect home even when they don’t initially recognize it. Lisa says, “My goal is not just about simply selling a house, it’s about inspiring my clients to realize their dream.”
It's about being honest with yourself and your clients. And it's about making sure your actions are consistent with your words—that you're delivering on your promises. But the most important thing of all is this: if you don’t love what you do, you'll never be able to be truly authentic as a real estate professional.
I know what it is like to stand in my customers' shoes. Relocating multiple times across the U.S. - buying and selling houses of my own - has afforded me a sensitivity towards a "customers' journey".
Listening, and understanding to their goals is one of the most valuable assets in the ability to see the big picture. If sometime is talking to you, I give them my undivided attention. Being a great listener is not going out of style. For me, it makes a difference understanding and knowing my clients. Every client is unique, so the way each person or couple decides to purchase is unique. I respect the process involved in making such an important decision. “No matter your price point, I promise to deliver a luxury experience and dedication."
“Good friends called for my expertise on finding a retirement property. While we searched, there was one that had promise, but they did not see it as 'perfect,'” Lisa explains. “We discussed their 'dream' and put a plan in place. The existing home was in need of an extensive remodel, however the location, exceptional water views and private beach, were more than they could imagine. Realizing their vision and having the resources of an amazing remodel done by Precision Builders in Venice, blossomed into their dream home!
My first passion is love of family – my husband Stephen of 25 years, and my two golden retrievers, Venezia (Vinnie) and Chaise, both passionately named after this wonderful place we live. Venice, and Casey Key (history shows it was Chaise’s Key).
Golf. Love of the game – you and the ball – along with playing amazing courses, golf is a mental game, as well as strategic. In order to be a strong player, you must first understand the fundamentals. Practice will improve your overall capability, but the mental game and your next shot, will allow you to achieve your goal. PS: I like the golf outfits, too!
Giving Back. I am the currently the President of the Casey Key Association, the wine chair for the Wine Women and Shoes event supporting Forty Carrots Family Center, and committee chair All Faiths Food Bank.
Love where you live.
Casey Key is not a tourist destination – so I always ask people how did you find Casey Key? The answer is simple - I was driving down Casey Key Road looking out over the Gulf of Mexico and fell in love with the area, or I know someone who lives here. Casey Key is a eight mile barrier island, and most would say is a rare place where commercial development was frozen in time.
“Casey Key chose us,” Lisa explains. “We too drove down Casey Key Road and instantly fell in love with this amazing barrier island. The turquoise blue waters, white sandy beaches. It was truly paradise. While we thought it was beyond our reach, we were blessed to have found the perfect house. Paradise found!"
“The Sotheby’s International Realty exposure and worldwide reach of our listings is a crucial piece of what sets us apart from the rest of the industry. Our global property marketing partners include the most authoritative news, lifestyle, and financial voices, as well as real estate-centric websites,” Lisa says. “Expertise that reaches down the block and around the world. Nothing compares.“
