Real Estate Advisor
A very driven and professional individual with experience and education in the financial industry,
small business development and real estate sector. DeAnn gained most of her knowledge for
business by working her way up through the banking industry in the Midwest for a period of over
30 years, holding positions such as Loan Originator, Assistant Vice President and Sales
Manager. She continued in this sector and obtained her Series 7 and 66 investment licenses to
become a Financial Advisor with a well-known investment firm. Her passion to excel in her own
small business prompted her to open a new business in Naples, Florida offering packing,
shipping and moving services along with many additional products through a store front
operation. She later converted the business to a company called Box & Freight which remains
active today and deals mainly with small freight demands both nationally and internationally.
DeAnn’s passion for real estate always remained prevalent in her mind, and given her ambition
to open new doors, she obtained her real estate license in 2010 in Florida and became a
licensed Realtor®. Her further ambition prompted her to obtain her Florida brokers licenses in 2015, and her North Carolina Brokers license in 2017. She continues to excel, educate, and flourish in the real estate industry.
With her extensive love of the industry, travel and enjoying new adventures, DeAnn welcomed
the opportunity to offer her experience and knowledge to Engel and Voelkers Fort Myers
