Tom Perkins, Realtor
A Florida native, born in St. Petersburg Florida, I currently am a resident of Longboat Key, Florida and have previously lived in New York City, La Jolla CA, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. A graduate of the University of South Florida, I furthered my education at the Gemological Institute of Gemology earning a Graduate Gemologist Degree.
Prior to entering the real estate field, I had a successful career in the retail fine jewelry business, focusing on luxury brand development and marketing, as senior vice president and merchandise manager for a national jewelry chain and as director of sales and marketing for a New York based jewelry manufacturing company.
Applying my talents to real estate, I intuitively know the importance of understanding the buyer’s needs and wants – from the practical to the most luxurious. When working with sellers, I develop unique marketing plans to present the home to its best advantage with a price that assures a maximum return and a prompt sale.
Involved in civic and philanthropic activities, I have served on boards of American Heart Association in Tampa Florida and The American Stage in St. Petersburg Florida, and am. a contributing member of the Literacy Council of Sarasota and the John and Mable Museum of Art in Sarasota Florida.
As a licensed real estate agent, I am proud to be affiliated with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty – teaming my knowledge of the area with the resources of a nationally known luxury real estate firm.
Whether buying or selling, you can trust me to give you professional service and an enjoyable experience.
