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.
Les Williams – Sales
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.
Sue Shields – Sales
Sue is originally from Cincinnati, OH. Her plan was always to retire to Florida’s Suncoast and bask in the
sun. In 2011 she brought her virtual sales training business to Ellenton, Fl., phased out her business over the next few years intending to completely retire. As things turned out, she had the opportunity to sell mobile homes in her community and found a new career. Sue loves helping others, especially those from the cold north winters find their dream home here in Florida.

Gloria Correll – Sales
I recently joined the team at My Florida Dreams. My husband Bill & I moved here from Pennsylvania in 2016.I can tell you from our very first week here we have never found ourselves looking for something to do. I always tell prospective buyers “if you are bored here it is your choice’. We have numerous clubs that you can join, they all plan different events. We have tennis, pickle ball & shuffle board courts as well as our 5 pools and other amenities. I myself am a people person and Bill and I both love dancing. We attend most all dances. My profile picture has a Hawaiian lei on my head. It is from a Luau themed dance here in the cove. One of many great dances. No matter what you choose to do in the cove you will have a great time!
Because I love the lifestyle and I love people selling homes seemed like a great idea. I worked as a Senior Tax Advisor for H & R Block for 8 yrs. previous to moving here. I still think of my clients and the bonds we made. Many are still in contact with me. I look forward to getting to know you and help you find your dream home. Just as I enjoy helping you to sell your home to move on and allow someone else to make it their dream home. My goal is to make this a pleasant experience for you. See you in the Cove!
Pat McLaughlin – Sales
My Real Estate career began in 2004 in Annapolis, Maryland. After retiring from 30 years in customer service with Verizon, I wanted to do something I really liked so I went into real estate. The training and experience in customer service provides me with the skills needed to help clients in a respectful, diligent manner. Every year me and my husband visited St. Pete’s Beach and loved the Gulf side of Florida. We were fortunate to be able to move to the ‘sunshine’ state in 2015. Although I planned to retire, I had the opportunity to join My Florida Dreams and get back to what I do best, help clients find their dream home in the sun! My background in Home Staging also helps me assist sellers put their homes in the best light when getting ready to list. I enjoy meeting new people, listening to their plans and helping them meet their goals. Open communication with buyers and sellers is key to a successful transaction and I make a point of keeping them updated throughout the process. After the sale, I make sure they have all the information they need for the surrounding area to help them settle in. If you, or your family or friends, are in the market for a vacation/full-time residence just give me a call and I will make sure they receive the best in customer service!

Barbara moved here less than a year ago to be closer to her daughter and her family which includes four beautiful grandsons. Growing up on the shores of Maryland she always knew she would retire to a beach so when her daughter and her husband moved the family to Tampa the answer was obvious as to which beach it would be !!

Barb has lived in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Hilton Head Island, Charlotte NC and finally has found her forever home here in Florida.
