About Me
Growing up in Michigan, I started my real estate career in Miami and moved to Panama to help launch the Trump Ocean Club resort. I love living in Panama, which has become my home. After taking 6 months of Spanish classes I was able to fully emerge myself into the culture and now speak fluent Spanish, which really comes in handy when exploring outside of the city, which I enjoy doing on weekends.

I am the managing director at Punta Pacifica Realty in charge of operations, training of the team to provide the best customer experience for our clients, and to be a direct resource for international investors looking to invest or move to Panama. Given my experience in hundreds of real estate transactions in Panama over the past 8 years I am able to help speed up the learning curve for prospective buyers and identify the best opportunities while steering my clients clear of potential missteps along the way.

I would be honored to the same for you.
