A couple of words about me...

I joined First National Palm Beach in 2004 to work with my sister Jacqui Grimshaw, Jacqui G, as part of her “Beyond Compare” sales team. Jacqui Grimshaw was the number one sales agent in Palm Beach and during my time working for her she passed on her outstanding, unique skills in negotiation, pricing and marketing strategies to me.

I’ve been involved in real estate one way or another for the past 25 years, buying selling and developing properties and I have an understanding approach to the expectations required by my clients. My background is in hospitality and hotel management and while balancing a young family of three kids I’ve developed a good time management skills to fit in with my passion and enthusiasm for selling real estate.

In real estate we have only one thing to offer our clients and that is trust, list with me and I promise you your property will get the best sales and marketing that I can give.
