International Life Style Host
I moved in Sarasota 8 years ago. Some of my favorite activities are: playing tennis, teaching ballet and the most special one: spending time with my kids. Me and my husband own a Tennis Academy and I love this business because working with people is what I like the most.
For 15 years I’ve been a tv host in Europe and I learned that communicating with people is the most fascinating job. My guilty pleasure is watching “Sex in the City.” For 45 minutes as I watch it, I forget about my diet and eat way too much ice cream and live my kids draw all over their body.
Owner/Designer at Heidi Rawson Design
I’ve lived in Sarasota for about 15 years intermittently. and proud to be a Trustee Scholar Graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design. What I enjoy about Sarasota is the sophisticated blend of the vibrant art and cultural scene. My favorite activities are boating and enjoying the picturesque coastline and amazing sunsets. I love the business I am in because I am somewhat of a storyteller. I write my clients biographies by using fabrics, furnishings and finishes. I advise my clients to collect the things they adore and which are authentic to them. Their homes become their story and I love being part of that process.
My favorite guilty pleasures include: white orchids, people who make me laugh, champagne, great bedding, travel, fall, and Voluspa candles……may I continue?
I consider myself a Sarasota native although I was originally born a Georgia peach. My parents moved me to beautiful Siesta Key before I was able to walk. I love anything that involves eating and socializing, whether it is preparing our fresh catch straight off the boat, indulging in the newest restaurant, or crowded around the grill at home with friends. I have a strong sense of adventure and will jump at any opportunity to live in the outdoors, such as paddle boarding, scuba diving, hiking and skiing.
Working in the real estate industry opens new doors each day and every person I meet and each experience I have is never the same. It is rewarding to be a resource to clients, as well as agents, at Berlin Patten Ebling, PLLC as they navigate what can be the biggest investment of their lives. I would say that I am an old soul and my guilty pleasure would be dancing barefoot in the kitchen to Billie Holiday while wearing a pillbox hat from my vintage hat collection and sipping martinis.
Real Estate Agent
I moved to Sarasota from the UK in 2004 after visiting summers as a child. As a favorite activity, my husband and I love to take the boat out into the open waters if the Gulf of Mexico and scuba dive or just cruise around the bay area making the most of our beautiful city. In my business everyone sees the calm above the surface but I’m paddling extremely hard underneath.
It is my job to ensure my clients are as unruffled as possible during what can be a very stressful process. When I see my clients happy satisfied face at the closing table, the intense paddling along the way is all the more worth it! My guilty pleasure is watching the British soap opera- Coronation Street with anything sweet in my hand – usually chocolate…too much chocolate.
