Nearly native, Tia moved to St. Petersburg from Long Island in her early elementary school years. A graduate of St. Petersburg High School, Tia took advantage of opportunities combining education and travel.
Landing safely back in St. Petersburg after 12 years away, she realized that there is no place like home!
"St. Petersburg can easily rival any of the wonderful cities I have had the fortune to live in and visit. I truly enjoy the best of both worlds, living on St. Pete Beach with my husband, Tom, and our two children- and working from offices steps from the Gulf of Mexico and the Waterfront Parks of Downtown St. Petersburg overlooking Tampa Bay."
Tia has the greatest confidence in the real estate market in and around Tampa Bay. She and her husband, Tom, have personally invested in Historic Restoration, Renovation and New Construction Projects in the neighborhoods of Historic Kenwood, Crescent Lake, Euclid/St. Paul, Allendale, St. Pete Beach, Historic Pass-a-grille Beach, Largo, Seminole and Redington Shores.
As a licensed Real Estate Broker for 25 years, Tia has experience in Commercial and Residential Sales, Leasing and Property Management. She is a certified and experienced 1031 Exchange Agent, a member of Prestigious Million Dollar Guild and has earned the CLHMS Designation as a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist.
