I became a REALTOR with Berkshire Hathaway Keys Real Estate in early 2021, joining my husband Chad, a seasoned REALTOR in the Florida Keys. I have quickly enjoyed building relationships with his clients and, as The Burtch Group, now share in the responsibilities which come along with being your agents, with us you get two for one.
From my perspective, one reason we found ourselves in Key West is I have always lived in coastal communities, many with the small town feel of the Florida Keys. Understanding your community is just as important in real estate as many other factors, however location is the factor driving for many people to our beautiful archipelago. Also as property owners in Key West, we want all our clients to feel at home immediately, especially if you are new to the area and hopefully love it as much as we do. The additional service Chad and I can provide comes from many years in the customer service industry, the education we have received throughout our careers, and from the places we have called home.
I have a unique background knowing about residential spaces, in addition to my more recent experience in real estate. I have a Bachelor's of Design in Architecture from the University of Florida 2005. I spent the first few years out of college as a residential designer on Martha’s Vineyard, MA at Hutker Architects. Not only do I understand the challenges of design and building in coastal communities, I am trained for what may be entailed after you purchase your property related to code, HARC, and other local variables.
Also I have a rare insight into our community in Key West because I owned a small business for 10 years. My business was a boutique with a focus on nurturing the local community by selling many things made here in the Keys or by independent artists. I enjoyed getting to know much of my community both vendors and customers alike, by having a physical storefront and being at the shop much of the time. Unique also in that I negotiated the sale of my business in 2020 to a previously competing boutique, without owning the building.
As Chad and I continue to grow our current client relationships, we look forward to meeting new clients in order to accomplish a goal of buying or selling in the Florida Keys and getting the best. Contact The Burtch Group today!
