Lic. Real Estate Broker
Looking back on my path that lead me to where I am today makes total sense. Hind sight is 20/20. I started out in housing in 2001 working for a corporate housing company. I managed the day-to-day for the first few years and was the only employee for several years. I moved up to managing groups of warehouse personnel and housekeeping and in early 2007 the company was sold to one of the top largest property management companies in the US. I got my real estate license in 2005 and my broker's license in 2007 and started Greenlee Realty Group. The market busted and business shifted to a new market. Investors started looking for homes to buy and there were a lot of people willing to work as the new housing industry was drying up. Greenlee Realty Group became a moonlighting job secondary to my full time job working at a property management company in Tampa. I was the senior leasing agent as we as the office manager for several years until 2011 when Greenlee Realty Group was finally a full time job. Our offices started out in my bedroom, and once I got tired of staring at work all day long, day in and day out we rented a small executive suite in downtown New Port Richey that was all of 400 square feet. We were able to "fit" four people in the office, but outgrew it in 4 months. Fortunately we were able to stay in the same building and move to a larger unit with a store front. In 2014, we outgrew that space after adding a bookkeeper and had to move our offices to a much larger space on Town Ave. The next leg of this adventure is waiting for us, and we are truly excited to dive into New Port Richey with a helping hand!
