My family dates back to the first Spanish settlers in Saint Augustine in 1565. As a 16th generation Floridian, I have watched south Florida over the past six decades change from a sleepy wintering destination into a vibrant modern collection of cities with thriving business. South Florida is a virtual melting pot of nationalities living together with excellent higher education and research facilities, arts and entertainment of all degrees, and is now a year-round vacation destination.
My formal education includes a BA in education from Florid State University, MA of education from SE Louisiana University, and an ABD-Ph.D specializing in Administration of Post Secondary Education.
During this time, I trained for the 1972 Olympics and represented the USA in gymnastics competition in Mexico, Europe, Russia, Canada and USA.
In the fall of 1973 I moved back to Florida and was hired as an associate professor at the University of Florida to teach education classes and also form and develop the first Gator’s women’s collegiate competitive gymnastics team.
In the spring of 1979, I moved to Fort Lauderdale to marry Robert Clobus, a Pittsburgh transplant, with a finance and economics degree from the University of Miami. Bob is a MAI and has owned his own appraisal firm since 1976. I started my real estate career in his office doing property searches and typing appraisal reports.
My first association after earning my real estate license in the fall of 1979 was with the Klock Company, who's excellent and comprehensive sales and time management education enabled me to move into my new career swiftly and profitably even with interest rates as high as 18%. The first five years in real estate were centered on corporate relocations and marketing institutional REOs. In 1983, The Klock Co. was purchased by Coldwell Banker where I entered the management training program and assigned to manage the Plantation office from 1984-1987.
In 1986 Bob and I were blessed with the birth of Christopher Kane. Chris grew up in Fort Lauderdale , graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a degree in Information Systems and business finance. and has helped me keep abreast of the technical changes in the real estate business, and I embrace the new wave of the future.
I joined Intercoastal Realty, Inc. in the fall of 1988 and have been with this outstanding boutique company for the last 30+ years helping individuals find their first homes, move up to their dream homes, downsize, and relocate.
My sales philosophy is based on Honesty, Education of the Customer, Communication at all times and Follow through until the Purchase or Sale if Finalized.
