I always joke I have the worst last name for a business. Yep. It's Roache... like the bug (with an e). But I guess in a way, absolutely perfect when it comes to Florida and Homes. (Side note: if you are moving here from a place without Roaches, get ready... they are kind of everywhere. And mosquitos, and lizards, and well, yeah.. alligators too.) BUT with all those critters you have a bunch of the amazing majestic ones like Eagles, Pelicans, Dolphins, and Manatees, just to name a few, that show up in your life quite often! It's one of things I absolutely love about Florida. Our landscape provides so much fun and beauty. Whether it's boating, fishing, stand up paddle boarding, surfing, kayaking, or just putting your toes in the sand, North Florida has something for everyone.
I was born and raised here in Jacksonville. I attended the Episcopal School of Jacksonville and then went onto The Florida State University where I got my degree in Interior Design in 2004. I married my high school sweetheart, TJ that same year. After a few years in residential design, I decided to follow my dream of owning a children's design boutique and opened lulu. The name was foreshadowing for the next big additions in my life, my daughter Lucy, born in in 2007 and my son Lucas born in 2008. Wanting to spend more time with my kids and wanting another child, I closed up shop in 2011.
We were residents of San Marco and loved every second of living on the Duck Pond, but decided it might be fun to give the beach (and their amazing public schools) a try. So in 2012, we put our house on the market and started another adventure in Ponte Vedra Beach. On April 2nd, 2012 we closed on our new house, TJ started a brand new job and I found out I was pregnant! Roaches go big, or go home!
We made the move down to PVB just at Lucy was starting Kindergarten at PVPV Rawlings and Lola joined the family. It has been the best decision we ever made moving to this area. The schools are amazing, the kids ride the bus with all their friends, we can walk to the beach and we know everyone in the neighborhood. Our church and school are a bike ride away.
We have met the best friends. Our kids have met the best friends. It's been the best 6 years of raising kids and loving the community we live in! As my youngest gets ready to head off to Kindergarten, I have been looking for ways to get back to work. Real Estate seemed like the perfect fit as it provides me an opportunity to use all my strengths: design, sales, organization, area knowledge, and working with people!
I am thrilled to join Ponte Vedra Club Realty! Established since 1937, Ponte Vedra Club Realty has been specializing in premium oceanfront homes, condominiums, single-family homes, townhouses, lots and vacant land, and intracoastal properties in the Ponte Vedra Beach area.
I LOVE this area and know it well! I look forward to helping you choose the right neighborhood and place to call home! I am a wealth of information when it comes to PVB and the surrounding areas. I hope you will give me a chance to show you around or help sell your home!
