A Note From Joan
A warm welcome and greeting to all who are considering Ocala/Marion County as a place to call home. Known as the “Horse Capital of the World”, Ocala is not only a great place for equestrians; it is a great place to call “Home.”
Ocala is not what most imagine when thinking of Florida. With all the luxuries of any large, sophisticated city, Ocala offers even more. From galloping horses running free in lush pastures, this town exceeds surface beauty. Ocala is impressive in a unique way. We are adorned with delicate canopies of cascading moss, old granddaddy Oaks that shade long stretches of hillside roadways and some of nature’s rarest, most plush landscapes. Home to miles of riding, hiking and biking trails, challenging golf courses, natural springs providing an abundance of fresh water and clear lakes for fishing and recreation, Ocala is one of the best places to live in Florida!
I was born into real estate watching my father design and build incredible homes. I literally grew up in the real estate business. My passion is helping my clients find the property that makes their dreams come true.
I grew up with horses. I had my first horse at the age of 6 and enjoyed riding and taking care of our family cattle. I started breaking and training my own show horses until I met my husband and became involved in Thoroughbred racing that brought us to Ocala more than 30 years ago. Ocala horses are known for outrunning their pedigrees.
Ocala is not limited to Thoroughbreds. All disciplines are trained and shown n this community. Ocala is home to HITS (Horseshows in the Sun), Live Oak International will celebrate its Silver Anniversary, the Florida Horse Park, rodeos and many other competitions.
My specialty is equestrian estates, Ocala horse farms and luxury homes. Luxury is personal. A property doesn’t have to be large to be luxurious and inviting. Each property has its own personality. Real Estate is my passion and for me, it’s a lifestyle. When you love what you are doing, you never wake up thinking about work.
I am very fortunate to have JJ, my husband who is very supportive of my career and a dynamic
sales team of very knowledgeable, licensed assistants. We enjoy helping people find the right property. When our clients are satisfied and settled into their new home or farm, it is a thrill for us as much as it is for them.
I like to say “It is not how much you spend, but the value that is gained from money well spent.” Luxury is within your reach. If you are considering buying your dream home or selling a property, please give me a call or email to discuss, I look forward to meeting with you.
