Anna-Maria, along with her husband, Erin, and their English bulldog, Cooper, moved to historic Apalachicola in the spring of 2004 because it reminded them of their favorite coastal Maine fishing village, without the freezing weather.
Born and raised in south Louisiana, Anna-Maria was intent on heading north and pursuing a career in the art and design industry. After graduating from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, with a degree in Art History and Archaeology, she fled to New York City to study furniture history and received her master's degree from The Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design, and Culture. During her time in New York, Anna-Maria held numerous research stints at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and was an associate at a prestigious appraisal firm in the city. Sales, however, have always been her "bread and butter," and prior to her real estate career, she was busy brokering Italian art between the two continents.
Today, Anna-Maria is an experienced Realtor--a professional who will work for you, advocate for you and guide you through the process of buying and selling your home. She has expert knowledge in historic architecture and first-hand experience in local planning and zoning so that she is well equipped in any situation. Working with Anna-Maria eliminates guesswork; she has the information you need to make an informed decision.
Anna-Maria is also actively involved with many elements of our local community, including the Apalachicola Board of Adjustment, the Apalachicola Community Redevelopment Agency, the Apalachicola Bay Area Chamber of Commerce, and The Franklin Cultural Arts Council. She is also a member of the Realtor Association of Franklin and Southern Gulf Counties, the Florida Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors.
When not working for her clients, Anna-Maria and her husband, Erin, are introducing their first child to the natural wonders of the Apalachicola River. Their favorite family pastimes are cooking for gracious friends; island camping on their boat, Migration; and swimming the local waters of the Apalachicola River and the Gulf of Mexico.
