Ambassador to Sarasota
Jamey began her career as a registered nurse graduating with honors from Olivette Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois. Her caring compassionate nature drew her as a young child to dream of becoming a nurse. Nearly fifteen years she devoted her knowledge and passion to care for acute and chronically ill patients. She surpassed her own expectations when she was invited to build an outpatient wound care/hyperbaric program. In her first year as clinical nursing manager the center won several awards including the center for excellence. It was through her beliefs about providing superior personalized care and drive that turned this program around. Jamey was always teaching whether it was with her patients and their families or the group of nursing/ medical students that surrounded her, she was happy to help anyone meet their goals.
Over the last couple of years Jamey has been assisting her husband Jim with his real estate business and, in 2011 obtained her real estate license to become a full time real estate associate. Having a passion for caring for others and a strong work ethic has made the transition from nursing to real estate seamless.
Jamey's passion for the city of Sarasota shows every time she talks to clients who have never been here before. She and Jim live in Lakewood Ranch and specialize in that area along with the barrier islands.
The former computer chip broker used his internet savvy and knack for connecting buyers and sellers to catapult into the top tier of real estate sales. Jim's success stems from his zealous belief in Sarasota's desirability and is grounded in his dedication to family.
When Jim decided to start selling real estate during the worst downturn in generations, his friends were more than skeptical. Having sold a successful international computer chip brokerage, Jim was looking for a new challenge that utilized his considerable skills and allowed him to continue working for himself. Real estate seemed perfect despite his friends qualms.
Using his deep knowledge of computers and the internet, Jim launched his new career less than three years ago with a robust website, SarasotaLandandHomes.com. The strategy paid off. Jim has sold over $20,000,000 in real estate in that short time.
His secret? "I love working with clients. and I'm really passionate about Sarasota. We should pinch ourselves everyday that we wake up in a great town and a great place to live."
He and Jamey live in Lakewood Ranch and specialize in that area as well as the barrier islands.
