I am fortunate to work in a field that I love. Real estate is fun, exciting, interesting and challenging. Every day brings new problems to solve and great people to meet.
My real estate career started on St. George Island in 1981, and I’ve helped people from around the world become a part of St. George Island and Florida’s Forgotten Coast with its environmentally-protected communities. I’ve been a top producer in the real estate industry for many years. I have also handled transactions in other coastal areas around Florida and in the Bahamas. But, my primary focus is on St. George Island, Apalachicola and Eastpoint.
My specialty is working with waterfront and resort properties for investments, second homes or residences. I also have experience with foreclosures, bank owned properties (REOs) and short sales as well as commercial real estate.
My education, expertise, experience and marketing skills give me a solid foundation from which to successfully market listings for sellers and help buyers make the right investment choices.
St. George Island, Apalachicola and the Forgotten Coast are wonderful places to live. I have lived here since 1980 and love the natural environment, wildlife and diverse ecosystems.
I was born and raised in Louisiana, and my undergraduate degree is from Louisiana State University. My husband John and I are loyal Tiger fans, and love SEC sports. John is a wildlife photographer and writer. We share our home on five acres on Scipio Creek north of Apalachicola with our two rescued dogs – Waterboy and Lizzie. And, we have a second home in St. Francisville, Louisiana.
Other business ventures I’ve had include marketing & consulting, restaurants and quarter horses. I formerly worked for a major daily newspaper. John and I also created and formerly owned Forgotten Coast TV.
Franklin County is one of the few places in Florida not spoiled by over-development and commercialization. I am privileged to live here, and strive daily to protect the amazing wildlife and environment.

After viewing a number of properties, she spent much time and effort in negotiating a successful sale. I had just retired after 22 years as a real estate broker in Maine. I can say from experience that Helen is exceptional. She is thorough, knowledgeable, and always available even with a busy schedule. I can recommend Helen without hesitation for her unstinting work ethic and professional integrity. Kathy and Dick
