Born and raised in Texas, Verna lived most of her adult life in the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee. A ture lover of houses, Verna has never been one to settle for the ordinary. She and her husband have built several houses of their own. It was this lifelong love affair with houses that led Verna into the world of real estate. She was a successful accountant with her own business, later worked in stocks and insurance, but nothing gave her the professional satisfaction she found in real estate. She owned her own real estate company while in Tennessee. When she discovered the historic beauty of St Augustine, her search was over for a home on the coastline of Northeast Florida where one can enjoy wonderful weather, the beautiful beaches, boating, sailing, good friends and the good life in many ways. Verna's business experience and keen appreciation of a person's connection to their home make her a natural in the field of real estate. She studies each transaction carefully and will not hesitate to give advice when a customer seems uncertain. She is also astute in recognizing the customer who knows exactly what they want, and she is delighted to be the one to help them get it. She is a Broker/Associate with over 30 years of real estate experience and many designations.
