Key West is magical. It’s not just the clear water that surrounds us, or the human scale of our historic architecture, or the smell of jasmine on the evening breeze. It’s the people. Interesting, diverse, eccentric — all are welcome here. With a rich history and culture, artists and musicians and writers and and diplomats and entrepreneurs and free spirits and captains of industry have all been captivated by the island’s charms. It’s been my home for over 20 years. I’m raising my family here, happy to give them a safe, small hometown where unparalleled nature and exceptional cultural opportunities are right outside our door.
I moved to Key West in 2000 when I purchased a 38-room women’s guesthouse here which I operated for 13 years. I had the privilege of serving as a County Commissioner for 12 years, giving me a keen understanding of all our islands, from the Southernmost Point to Ocean Reef. I have decades of marketing experience, and I understand land use regulations and property insurance issues. One of my proudest moments was as a Co-chair of Key West PrideFest in 2003 when we unfurled Gilbert Baker’s Sea-to-Sea Rainbow Flag. Our entire community came together to sew and carry a truly colorful demonstration of Key West’s One Human Family motto. I enjoy welcoming new folks to this very special place.

Heather helped us with the purchase of a house under construction in a new development in Key West. The purchase price was north of $2 million, so our expectations were pretty high. Heather exceeded our expectations in every respect. We found her to be knowledgeable on all aspects of what was going on. See was an effective liaison to the builder. She is a good communicator, gets things done accurately, completely and quickly. She’s easy to work with and responds quickly to requests. We will definitely avail ourselves of Heather’s services the next time we have a real estate transaction in Key West. Martin&Jon
