Tami has been in the business of organization, marketing and graphic design since starting her first business in 1993 at the age of 23. An entrepreneur by genetics, she left the freelance world in January of 2002 to join her mother’s real estate team as Director of Marketing and Concierge Services.

Along with Sharon Simms, Tami is a trainer for the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, teaching their certification course around the country. A frequent speaker and panelist nationwide, she served a term on the Advisory Board for RE/MAX International’s luxury home division.

Born in Newport, Rhode Island, Tami spent many of her formative years in Tennessee before moving to St. Petersburg in 1986. She graduated from St. Petersburg High School shortly thereafter and then received a bachelor’s degree in Visual Art from Eckerd College in 1992. After college, she was recruited by Stouffer Hotels & Resorts and helped to re-open the historic Vinoy Resort. After a brief transfer to Baltimore’s Harborplace Hotel, she opened her first business as a professional organizer.

Her background as a luxury resort concierge resulted in the Team’s unique concierge program that takes client service to a new level in their Florida market. Tami is particularly adept at helping clients relocating to the St. Petersburg area get acquainted with their new community and engaged in activities that suit them.

Committed to community involvement, Tami has more than twelve years of non-profit board experience. She has specific experience in strategic planning, board governance, bylaws development and transition implementation. Tami ensures that volunteerism and good corporate citizenship are integral parts of her life, personally and professionally. She serves as Chairman for the City of St. Petersburg’s Human Relations Review Board among other activities. An active member of Business and Professional Women (BPW), she served as State President for BPW/FL and served two terms on the BPW/USA Board of Directors in addition to her local involvement.
