I grew up on the shores of Lake Erie on the Cedar Point peninsula-just down the road from the world-famous, Cedar Point Amusement Park. Living on Lake Erie taught me early on the benefits of "location, location, location". We spent idyllic summer days swimming, boating and fishing on Sandusky Bay and Lake Erie. For additional fun, my parents took us a mile down the road to Cedar Point amusement park. Cedar Point became my first employer at age 15 and I worked there every summer until I moved away from Ohio. In winter, we ice boated and skated on Lake Erie and Sandusky Bay. As a child, I understood we lived in a magical place.
Growing up at the beach in the sixties and seventies, my sister and I listened to Beach Boys singing, "California Girls" and dreamed of another coast where there was an endless summer. After graduating from Miami University of Ohio, we headed out to San Diego. There, I became a REALTOR in 1989 and worked with Prudential California Realty and Coldwell Banker before NE Ohio called me back 10 years later.
In early 2000, I attained my Ohio Real Estate License and built a home in Huron near Lake Erie. In 2015, I sold the house in Huron and moved to a 1950s ranch 1/2 block from Lake Erie in Avon Lake.
Nearly 30 years of selling real estate on two coasts reinforced my understanding of the importance of location. Homes near water typically sell for a premium price/square foot compared to other areas. There is a finite amount of land to be developed on or near our oceans and Great Lakes. Purchasing a home or lot in a beach community is a way to fully enjoy the many benefits of living near water while maximizing your opportunity to build personal wealth through your real estate investment. Building future wealth along with wonderful memories of life on the lake with your family and friends is a wonderful gift to give to yourself and a great legacy for your heirs.
My specialty is selling the lifestyle and homes in beach communities along the shores of Lake Erie, with emphasis on the communities of Avon Lake, Bay Village, Rocky River, Lakewood, Willoughby, Vermilion, Huron, Sandusky, Port Clinton, Marblehead and Catawba Island.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you buy or sell your Great Lake Erie Home.
