Meet Our Team

The COMPLETE Package

Whether it’s marketing, sales, or utilizing today’s technology, our TEAM of experienced professionals has the expertise to help you start YOUR Florida Dream. We’re not just a business…we’re your new neighbors!

My Florida dreams is owned and operated by 4 friends who came from different places and very different backgrounds. We all had a dream of retiring to Florida and enjoying the blessings this tropical paradise has to offer but I’m pretty sure none of us could have foreseen owning a business that sells mobile homes in Florida. But here we are and We Love What We Do!

We have created the business we always wanted to be a part of when we were working for other people.  Of course that doesn’t mean we don’t take it seriously because we work hard for you but we also want to have fun doing it.  We said goodbye to suits and ties and hello to something a lot more comfortable.  Don’t be surprised if we show up on our golf cart to drive you around to look at mobile homes for sale.  You’ll love the breeze and I promise you, it’ll put a smile on your face.  In short, you’re not our business….YOU’RE OUR NEW NEIGHBORS.  We’ll be here after the sale because this is where we call home and we love to help our new friends find their way here in our little part of Florida.

Each of us here in the Cove has a unique story which lead us to the Cove but I’ve noticed a common thread that keeps coming up…many of us needed a fresh start.   For me, after over 25 years in real estate brokerage firms and sales, I was burned out.  I sold hundreds of homes, if not thousands.  But, the stress of being successful and a commitment to being diligent in all my dealings with the public had become a burden.  I needed a fresh start. I found life much simpler here in the Cove.  I retired my real estate licenses in Tennessee, Missouri, and Florida and made a commitment to sell homes here in the Cove.  My experience in real estate enables me to assist every buyer and seller in a timely and professional manner.  I’ve found my passion again.  And that’s what the cove is all about.
