We have formed relationships with our clients that we wouldn’t trade for the world. For those of you who we have not had the pleasure to meet yet, we are starting a new “Get To Know Us” Q & A blog, where you will learn all about each member of our team. This month, our feature team member is Listing Specialist and Team Lead, Carrie Webb Heustis. Here is a brief look into the world of one of our most valued, witty, and bubbly team members.
1. Tell me a little about yourself. Where are you from? What did you want to be when you grew up? Did you attend college? If so, where?
I am Jacksonville native and I grew up at the Beach! When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a Veterinarian. As I got older I knew I wanted to someday own my own business. I graduated from the University of North Florida with a Bachelors in Public Relations.
- Why did you choose Real Estate as your profession?
I starting working for a commercial real estate firm as the Director of Operations, and I immediately fell in love with the business. I knew right away that I wanted to be a part of this fast paced, driven industry. Residential real estate caught my eye immediately because of the relationship you gain with your customers. Helping a family sell or purchase a home is an amazing feeling and incredible journey to be a part of.
- Why do you love living in Jax?
Jacksonville is one of those cities where you feel like you are in a small town, yet still have the city and the beaches. Jacksonville has grown so much over the years, and I am proud to say this is my hometown. This city is thriving more and more each year with new restaurants, condos, and events. I am truly excited to see what our future holds!
4.What are some of your favorite things to do? Places to go?
I am a MAJOR foodie, so pretty much my social life revolves around which restaurant I want to go! The Atlantic Beach town center is one of my tops for sure. I love sitting at the corner either at Flying Iguana, sipping margaritas or North Beach Fish Camp with a glass of wine.
Riverside gives you the city feel with boutiques and rooftop restaurant and bars like Black Sheep. I love going to The Florida Theatre for quaint shows by amazing performers.
These are just a few of my favorite things …
5.Do you have any pets? If so, what kind? Names?
I have two English Bulldogs… Churchill and Clementine.
They are ridiculously cute.
They drive me crazy, but I can’t imagine life without them.
- If you could travel anywhere, where would you go, and why?
I want to go everywhere! Traveling is a huge part of my life and it’s extremely important to me to try new things and see new cultures.
My top places next are…
Greece, Italy (Almafi Coast, Florence, etc.), Ireland, Fiji, Bali… Just to name a few 😉
Tell me five interesting facts about yourself:
* My absolute favorite foods are Tomato Mozzarella & PHO
* I have an alter ego… we call her Shakira
* I add hot sauce to almost everything I eat!!
* I’ve been known to randomly bust out into song and dance at any moment
* On my team, I’m known as “The Flower”, but the Thorn can come out 😉
