Born: Rhode Island -Navy brat. Moved to many different places in the world including living in Hawaii on Dec. 7, 1941 when Pearl Harbor was bombed.

Family home-in Brunswick Ga. -married a Navy man- continued my life of moving. 10 years later husband became a Lutheran minister. We lived 26 years in SC. -had 4 sons. After 14 years' of part- time schooling , I received my degree in voice performance from the Univ. of S.C. and then taught voice in the University system.

Timeshare History:

1979: Life and career change. Pompano Beach, Fl. , Canada House Beach Club,  that "new" thing called timeshare. Top sales person then Sales Manager.

1982: moved to Orlando. Timeshare industry was just beginning.  Disney World was making an impact on Orlando and I had the feeling it would have  a great impact on the market place.  Little did I know!! Sales Manager-Senior Sales Manager  for 15 years at Orange Lake Country Club, a premier top of the line resort developed by the founder of the Holiday Inn hotel chain.

My proudest and most rewarding moment was when I received, on two different occasions,  two awards, one Gold and one Silver, given by American Resort Development Assc. (ARDA) for National Sales Manager of the Year for "recognition of outstanding achievement and exemplary performance in behalf of the interest of the community of Vacation Ownership"-a very prestigious and highly competitive award (for which I am thankful) as there are thousands of members in ARDA.

15 years later I retired (ha!) and became part of a company selling resales of timeshares, A Timeshare Broker, Inc.  where I established the Disney Vacation Club Resales department and worked there for 11 years.  My son, Kinn,  joined me in this endeavor in 2000. Over 1,600 DVC closings later, my son and I decided to start our own company so here we are!!

DVC Specialist since 2000

Preacher's kid! in  S.C.  We moved a lot and I lived in many S.C. towns including Columbia, Saluda, Orangeburg, Florence and Myrtle Beach. Then off to Florida with my Mom.  I joined the timeshare industry as well. I have sold "on property" with Island One Resorts and I did "off property" marketing for Orange Lake Country Club. This experience allowed me to gain the knowledge required to manage a marketing company that specialized in timeshares and the selling of attraction tickets. I did that for 11 years. Then it was time to help my mother in her very busy DVC resale business. We have worked together now since 2000 and it has been a real pleasure. I feel I have been trained by "the best" and I am ready to pass that knowledge and experience on to you.  We love people and our greatest pleasure is helping you so--call us.!!

I was born in Pensacola, Fl on the navy base.  I moved to South Carolina at a young age where I remained until finishing high school.  I moved to the Orlando area in 1981 where I worked in the restaurant industry for five years.  I then began a new career in the timeshare industry where I remained for the following 11 years.   I changed careers and started a new career with the Orange County Property Appraiser’s Office where I was a residential and commercial appraiser for 12 years. After 12 years with the property appraiser’s office it was time to move on and enter the DVC resale industry to work with my mother and brother.  I have now been working with my family for over 4 exciting years and I enjoy helping people experience the “Magic” that only DVC properties can provide.

I moved to Orlando 25 years ago after a long mortgage banking career in Boston. In Orlando, I retrained in the field of Medical Transcription and ran a Medical Transcription Company for several years until I could not resist the magic of Disney any longer. At the invitation of my mother-in-law, brother-in-law, husband and niece-the Tutas Team, in 2013 I joined Garden Views Realty, Inc. in a clerical capacity. Spreading the joy became so intoxicating that I recently went on to become a licensed Real Estate associate and joined the Tutas Team full time. Truly, helping families realize their Disney dreams and working with my family has been the most rewarding of all my past endeavors.
