I am 29 years old, was born and raised right here in beautiful south Florida. I grew up in Palm Beach Gardens in an equestrian community known as “Caloosa”, where Real Estate was a part of my life from age 6. My mother, Cindi Stage, began her career in Real Estate when I was only 6 years old, and I have been around it ever since! I grew up racing go-karts, starting when I was 11. We traveled most of the United States doing this and there was one major thing I learned from all my travels, that Jupiter/Juno Beach/Palm Beach Gardens is one of the nicest places to live in the United States. After graduating from William T. Dwyer High School in 2000, I attended the University of Florida and graduated with honors in the fall of 2004, with a degree in Criminology. With my ear always close to the ground on Real Estate, due to my mother’s successful business, I obviously was aware of the soaring Real Estate Market. I quickly jumped into the business and began working with my mother at Re/max in Palm Beach Gardens. With Immediate success I thought for sure this was a career that would be permanent, but by the spring of 2006, the economy and Real Estate market plummeted, and so did the continued success. I was then forced to use my degree and find a new line of work until things in Real Estate picked back up. I was soon hired by the Target Corporation as an Executive Team Leader of Assets Protection. With my degree and people skills, I was a great fit for this position, as it pertained to investigations and resolution of employee theft. I did this for roughly 4 years, which was more than enough time to realize that I ultimately missed the Real Estate world and felt I was passing up my true calling. I spoke to my mother in detail about re-entering the Real Estate world, as she was still having her success even though she had weathered the economic storm. She embraced my thoughts on returning to the business and I returned full time to Real Estate in September 2010, and I haven’t looked back since. I’m a true believer in you have to do what makes you happy in life and working in Real Estate is what appeases me professionally. I work side by side with my mother at Re/max Ocean Properties in Juno Beach, Florida (seconds from our beautiful beaches). We work for two outstanding brokers, a husband and wife team, Pete and Angelina Martinsen. Our offices are like one big family and that’s how we treat our clients!!
