Born in Michigan and raised in Florida, Larissa discovered her passion for real estate by following her parents’ 30 year careers as Realtors. Her career path started at the University of Florida, graduating with a BS in Business Administration with honors and multiple leadership awards. Her love for travel led her to study in Innsbruck, Austria, and also work as a college intern for Walt Disney World which allowed her to meet worldwide guests and co-workers.
After graduating in 1992, she rejoined the Walt Disney Company where she enjoyed a fruitful 16 year career. Highlights included HR recruiting, marketing in London to promote global sales, and becoming licensed in real estate for the Disney Vacation Club helping worldwide clients realize their vacation ownership dreams. She excelled as a Senior Sales Consultant at DVC receiving WDW CEO recognition as the top 20% of her sales team.
In 2004 she obtained her mortgage loan origination license to further expand her industry knowledge and in 2008 she moved to Julington Creek Plantation Estates in Jacksonville to support her husband’s career in general contracting/construction management. This allowed her the opportunity to stay at home with their 2 children, to serve her community as PTO President of Julington Creek Elementary, and be honored as JCE Volunteer of the Year.
Licensed in real estate since 1994 and in loan origination since 2004, Larissa commands the expertise, education and enthusiasm to welcome you home with simplicity. Whether a first-time buyer, seasoned homeowner, or multi-property investor, she is ready to lend a helping hand by turning your ownership dreams into reality!
