Maxine is originally from New England and attended George Washington University in Washington, D.C. After graduating, she moved to New York and worked in sales and marketing for several years, typically in some facet of communications or media. She loved her time in New York because it allowed her to meet and work with people from all over the world. She discovered that no matter where we come from in the world, we almost always have more in common than not.
When she left the Big Apple for SW Florida, she began her real estate career in Sarasota. First, as an assistant at Coldwell Banker and then became a licensed Realtor® with Michael Saunders & Company. She is now happy to be a member of the JRW team. Her philosophy is simply: “Integrity Matters”, and that means recognizing that a transaction is more than just a business exchange. She believes the process of buying or selling a home is a very personal thing. Every member of the process is equally important, so clear communication is vital. She experienced the market through the good times, insurmountably difficult times, and saw firsthand just how deeply affected so many people were by the crash. Everyone has their own story and their own set of circumstances. As a realtor, it’s imperative to be mindful of that in order to provide her clients with the best possible service to meet their specific needs and goals. Maxine loves helping people and feels enormous satisfaction in helping them realize their real estate dreams, big and small!
