I was born into Real Estate in Hagerstown, Maryland where my dad sold Real Estate and Insurance all of his life. We spent summers in Venice, FL and I actually attended 2nd and 3rd grade in Venice. Our Family relocated permanently to Englewood, Florida in 1989 when I obtained my Real Estate license and started selling Real Estate in the Venice Area. I have been in the Real Estate business full time ever since. I obtained my Real Estate Brokers license in 1991 and earned the Presidential Elite Status with Coldwell Banker, became a member of the Re/Max Hall of Fame and opened up Settles Real Estate in 2012. Settles Real Estate is a Full-Service Real Estate company handling Residential/Commercial Sales and Property Management.
