"I grew up in the Pittsburgh area, and at the age of seven, visited the New Jersey beach for the first time. As I was listening to my parents make conversation with our waitress one morning at breakfast, it suddenly dawned on me that there are people who actually live in vacation towns; they never have to ‘go home.' From that point, it became my dream to someday live at the beach; to be one of the fortunate few who do not have to pack up and return home at the end of the week. Just as my dream finally came to fruition, I hope to make my clients' property ownership dreams come true." So give Dina a call – because you'll never know how many friends you have until you own a home at the beach!
