About Grace

Grace Appleton PR Shot Small FileHello!  Please allow me to give you a little background on myself and why you might want to work with me to help you buy or sell your new home.  I am a strong passionate person who always goes that extra mile for my customers.  I am honest, friendly and I think I am fun to be around but you will have to be the judge on that.

I am from Toronto Ontario Canada and born of Portuguese parents.  I am fluent in Portuguese and always happy to chat with local Brazilians or friends from Lisbon.  In Canada I loved spending time with family and friends at the cottage boating and fishing… but even better was the time spent sharing wonderful meals.  And if any of you know Toronto, it has some of the best restaurants in the world with over 75 unique ethnic cultures represented.

In 2000 I moved to Carmel Indiana and really enjoyed my time there.  I made wonderful friends and it will always hold a place in my heart.   I then had the opportunity of a lifetime and moved to sunny south Florida.  I have been here since 2006 and plan on staying forever!

My career before moving to Florida and getting into real estate was in the automotive industry.  I wore many hats on the way here and had the opportunity to become the Director of sales for one of the Big 3’s finance division and I was the VP of Business development for a Fleet Optimization company.  My favorite time was in the remarketing side of the business working with one of the largest auction companies in North America.

I have worked with and met many great people in my life and I am happy to say that I still call many of them friends.  Listening to the needs and desires of my customers is the basis for long term success.  Matching those needs to the realities of the marketplace at any given point in time is my forte.  Whether listing homes on behalf of my local clients or showing homes to those actively seeking to live or invest here, my goal is to make your dreams come true as expeditiously and painlessly as possible.

Whether you are looking to relocate and raise a family or just come down for part time fun I am sure I can help you find what you are looking for.  I look forward to working with you soon!

Warm regards, Grace
