Rhonda & Duane Finney - Living in Paradise - FL Gulf Coast
We love the Bradenton/Sarasota area with its gorgeous white sand beaches, blue gulf waters and amazing lifestyle the area offers. Over the years, we have been fortunate to have lived and enjoyed many homes in the area. We have four children in their 20s, Nelson, our Cavalier King Charles, two wonderful daughters-in-law and recently welcomed our first grandbaby. When we’re not assisting our clients buy and sell homes, we love walking the beach, sailing, cooking and, whenever we have the opportunity, traveling the world.
Rhonda was born in Ontario and grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia before following in the footsteps of her father and brother who are accomplished real estate professionals. From the beginning of her real estate career, Rhonda recognized the value and importance of education and expertise to providing effective and exceptional service to her clients. Accordingly, she became one of less than 4% of all Realtors® earning the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS®) designation.
Duane grew up in northwestern Minnesota and worked there for many years managing his family’s consumer electronics/appliance business. In 2001, Duane became a Realtor® and began helping people buy and sell houses, investment property and commercial real estate. Duane is a graduate of the University of British Columbia with a master’s degree in economics.
We believe the best way to begin a satisfying real estate relationship is by really listening to you, and understanding your objectives.
Real estate transactions can be a complicated mix of practical, financial and emotional factors made even more complex by the ever-changing “rules of the game” with respect to real estate and lending regulations. With that in mind, we are committed to investing the time and effort to maintain a strong understanding of our real-estate market and a high level of expertise in every critical aspect of our business.
In real estate, as with many endeavors, it’s the details that matter. You can expect us to:
- Pay attention to the details.
- Maintain frequent communication.
- Always focus on solutions.
- Place your needs and interests first.
- Be positive, enthusiastic and fun to work with.
