Sandi Kerr, a veteran real estate professional, has returned to Tampa where she grew up, attended Plant High School and graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in education. While attending the University of Florida, Sandi was an active member of Alpha Delta Pi.
Sandi's professional career began as a public school teacher in Hillsborough County. But when she was hired by Smith & Associates and later by Beneficial Finance for its new Harbour Island development, she knew she’d found her true calling. Many of the people she met as customers have remained personal friends.
Marriage resulted in a move to England where Sandi’s sales skills were expanded in a position with Beneficial Bank in the U.K.’s southwest Devon region.
After daughter Kate was born, Sandi and husband Tim left England for New York where she worked in retail sales including William-Sonoma and Lily Pulitzer. But real estate remained a lure and she obtained her New York license and joined Town & Country Real Estate in eastern Long Island.
With Kate enrolled at Florida State University, Sandi has returned to Tampa (along with her two Labrador retrievers) to pursue her passion in meeting new people and matching them with the perfect properties. Family and friends, she says, played a major role in her decision to return to Florida. And, after 15 winters in New York, she admits the prospect of somewhat warmer weather also helped!
