I started my career in 2002 and after tying out 4 different companies including small , franchise and large regional agencies. What I found was that I liked some things about each agency. I also realized none of these companies were specializing.
After arriving in Southern Maryland from Pensacola, I realized I needed a change in careers. I had been a computer programmer for too long so I took the real estate test and jumped into real estate , while keeping my Computer Software Company. Within the first year I noticed there were a lot of incoming calls asking about vacation rentals in Solomons Island. I also helped many vacation home buyers purchase vacation homes.
It was that first year that I decided one day I would open a brokerage like the ones I used in Florida (Destin and Pensacola). These companies specialized in both selling vacation homes and vacation rentals. I knew I had a lot to learn so I continued to get experience and education in the real estate field. Then I started up my first vacation rental property in 2006 so I could develop a system for managing the properties. The last step was to open my own brokerage because in Maryland you are required to have your own brokerage to manage properties. So I came up with Western Shore Realty, LLC specializing in vacation property (waterfront, communities with water access, condos..)
We are the only company specializing in vacation home rentals and sales in the area. Even our office is decorated with a vacation feel. All staff are friendly and familiar with the area. I was elected on the Tourism Commission this year. We believe buying a vacation home should be a fun experience that runs smoothly.
