Tina Escalante Realtor Associate
My passion for real estate began to develop early in my life. I can remember buying home decorating magazines and floor plan books every chance I got. This was well before the advent of the internet and I was still in high school at the time! This passion grew as my husband and I purchased our first home in our early twenties, and discovered how life-changing it was to have a place that was truly our own! Throughout the next several decades, we bought and sold numerous properties both here in Florida and previously in Massachusetts, some of which were our residence and some, investment properties. I have learned how critical it is to ‘know your market’ down to your neighborhood and even a particular street! This is all very valuable knowledge to both buyers and sellers and it is critical to be well versed in this area.
On educational and professional levels, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and have nearly fifteen years of experience as a paralegal, much of which was directly related to the area of real estate. The sum of my experiences both personally in buying and selling real estate and professionally in my work-life, makes me very well-rounded and gives me a thorough understanding of the process of buying, owning and selling real estate, from start to finish, including the importance of staging your home to sell. I look forward to assisting my clients with attaining their goals, whether it be purchasing that dream home they have wanted for so long, finally being able to buy an investment property to help secure their future, or simply selling their own property for top dollar! I look forward to working with you!
