1.) In three sentences or less tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am a focus business minded individual whose full-time job is real estate.

I care about my customer’s investment and wellbeing more than I care about the sale.

I know the North Florida area like the palm of my hand and that helps me in guiding my customers well.

 

2.) What do you like best about living here in Northeast Florida (can be specific area, i.e. WGV, Jax Beach, PVB, etc.)?

I love St. Johns County because of the relaxed, more suburban lifestyle, but like all of North Florida in general.  It is a melting pot of some of the nicest people from all over the country I have ever met.

 

3.) What is your favorite indoor or outdoor activity?

I love to garden! Over the past 15 years of living here I have converted my yard into an English garden.

Keep your home safe by reinforcing these home entry points

April 28, 2020

 | 

Thanks to video doorbell systems, we are now paying more attention to home security. We’ve all seen the videos online of would-be burglars and scammers caught by high-tech front porch security systems.

 

The only problem? These camera systems don’t actually prevent criminals from accessing your home. Even in gated neighborhoods and master-planned communities throughout Jacksonville and St. Augustine, home break-ins can and do happen—anywhere.

 

 

In addition to installing a home security system to alert the authorities of suspicious activity, it is important to deter criminals from even gaining access in the first place.

 

Here are a few ways you can increase protection at your home’s main entry points.

 

Garage door

The garage door is one of the most vulnerable entry points in a home! An amateur burglar can easily open it by drilling a hole in the door (or breaking a glass window, if applicable) and using a long hook tool to pull the emergency release wire. Once the wire has been pulled, the door disengages and can be opened manually in just seconds. This goes for heavy-duty garage doors as well; the spring system works to counter the door’s weight.
