Janine was raised in Miami and spent her summers in a small town on the shores of Lake Michigan. She received an art and design degree from Florida State University before moving to greater Los Angeles where she enjoyed a decade in the world of visual arts and interiors. Yet, she still had Florida sand in her shoes. She returned to the Sunshine State and settled in Naples in 1992, advancing her career in upper management at a large-scale furniture corporation. Her tenure in that industry offered a wealth of experience in sales, marketing, finance, negotiations, consumer services, communications and design, and was an ideal segue into real estate in 2005.


Janine’s life’s journey from Miami to Newport Beach to Naples gave her the perspective to recognize that the Southwest Florida Gulf Coast is a captivatingly beautiful place to live with an ideal community for every taste. Helping her buyers find their idyllic perch here enables Janine to showcase this enchanting region’s attributes and leverage her lifetime of sales and marketing skills to their benefit. And it’s not just about real estate, it’s about the joy in connecting her buyers with all the things that enhance quality of life: the arts, beaches, boating, dining, fishing, golf, shopping, recreation and so much more.
