Why did I choose real estate for career?

My passion for people, long time residence in St. Petersburg, and desire to pursue a new career in business combined making real estate a perfect choice for me. I have met so many wonderful people both as buyers and sellers and other realtors.

What was your career before real estate?
My previous career was as an educator. From science teacher, to professional development, to school improvement consultant, I had an extraordinary experience in education. But it was time to move on so I “tied a bow on my career” and decided to challenge myself with a career in real estate.

Tell us about yourself
I’m married to Patrick McGurk, have no children, have one dog, and have lived in the OLD NE all my married life. You will see me out walking my dog in the park or the streets of OLD NE. What a great place to live! As a graduate of University of Florida I am an exuberant Gator Fan and go to allhome football games. I have 2 Master’s Degrees from USF so they are also a favorite team.
You will find me playing tennis, bicycling with my husband, or at the gym in my free time! St. Pete is such a great place to do all things outside!

Community commitment
I am a member of the All Childrens’ Hospital Guild Evening Branch and have been volunteering as a Branch Member for 26 years. Our main fundraiser is the Annual Charity Ball which raises money for specific Foundation projects while building friends for Johns Hopkins All Childrens Hospital.
I am also on the CelmaMastry Ovarian Cancer Foundation Board and participate in organizing and supporting this extremely worthwhile charity.
I am a member of the Stuart Society of the Museum of Fine Arts and work to continue the great tradition of growing the Arts in St. Pete and maintaining the high level of art collections in the Museum.
I am active with my sorority alumnae, Kappa Delta.

Why I chose YES Homes
I believe success in real estate is 90% building relationship and acting upon solid core values. I chose YES Homes because of the core values, integrity, reputation, and knowledge of Marian Yon Maguire and Rhonda Sanderford. I have known Marian for over 25 years working with her in many community service venues and knew that both Rhonda and Marian have years of experience in real estate with great results. I wanted to be part of the high level team of realtors that are YES Homes.
