A local of Northeast Florida, Holly joins Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty as a Realtor who has over a decade of experience as the owner and designer of several successful design companies. Holly began her career in the computer industry designing client-based computer software, but due to her love of furniture and woodworking, Holly established “Design 51 Studio” to focus her attention and talent on cabinetry design and space planning.

With a full understanding of their needs and goals, Holly partnered with her clients on the redesign of their existing homes as well as for review and design modification of architectural drawings for new construction projects.

Holly also worked with other Realtors to help their sellers and prospective buyers envision a home’s fullest potential through a comprehensive redesign of “deficient” spaces.   Being able to look beyond the existing structure to see the bones of a house is a skill that Holly has honed over her design career.  This expertise enables Holly to provide valuable insight to her clients.

In addition to all of this, Holly also holds two U.S. patents for products she has designed, a utility patent for an athletic apparel product and a design patent for furniture molding.

As with design, Holly, as a Realtor, knows that each client is unique with specific needs and desires.  Whether buying or selling a home, Holly partners with clients to identify and understand those specific needs and, of equal importance, to identify what, if any, fears or concerns there may be regarding the buying or selling process. Holly believes this valuable information is critical in affecting the best, uniquely-appropriate outcome for the client.

“Having the right real estate agent means having an agent who is committed to helping you buy or sell your home with the highest level of expertise in your local market.
