Biography
Let me introduce myself, raised by my parents and grandparents who had emigrated from Portugal to Fall River, MA. From an early age I was taught to appreciate what I had and to always strive to be the best, no matter what job I was undertaking. My parent’s motto was "Always reach to succeed!" Caring, listening, and following through for complete customer satisfaction are my three steps to success in everything I do.

Fleet National Bank is were I began my career back in 1977 as the executive secretary for the Human Resources Vice-president and when I left in 1982 to move to Florida was the Mortgage Area Specialist meeting customers in their homes and completing their mortgage applications and following through until closing.

My husband Manny and I moved to Florida after purchasing our first Dunkin' Donuts Franchise and then developing four other stores negotiating the leases and developing the business.  Our success were the people we had working for us and they made it possible to have a Top Rated store fronts five years running.  I thank them for all their hard work and devotion. Our two sons Manny Jr. and Joshua were an extreme contribution to our success as well.   They grew up in the business and I am extremely proud to have two wonderful young men who not only gave up many holidays, vacations and personal time to make our business a well oiled machine that ran like clock work.  
 
My oldest son Manny Jr. is married to a wonderful young lady by the name of Allison who has given to our family not only herself but two beautiful identical twin grandsons Manny III and Jeremiah who are the sunshine of our lives.  I am blessed with such a wonderful family as well as many wonderful friends.  My success has not only been the people I have touched along these many years but more importantly the people that have impacted and touched my life as well.

Choosing Watson  back in 2005 was an easy decision for me since the company Bill Watson started over 40 years ago is run on the same principals I believe in, delivering a successful Real Estate transaction with honesty and integrity!  Bill always says to be successful, you have to devote at least half the day to your business and customers and it doesn't matter which half 12 to 12 morning or evening. My partner Andria Erickson and I are committed to delivering to our customer the best that we both can offer.  We partnered in order to insure that our clients always had a back up just in case one of us were on vacation or fell ill. We Are the "Jaxs Realtors on the GO.........

I have enjoyed great success with the Watson family of agents over the past few years and I hope you will give me a call for any of your Real Estate needs!  I pride myself in finding out what my client's needs and concerns are so that I can save them time and money.  This way we both succeed! 
Testimonials
'I had power of attorney for a friend of my mothers and lived 1500 miles away and Leona handled the sale of the home and did all of the leg work to obtain the bids for all the work that had to be done on the home as well as overseeing the completion. She truely came through and we did not even have to come to the closing.'
'Before I relocated to Jacksonville, I use to drive one hour each way to work. Leona found the right house for me and my wife and now it takes me 15 minutes to get to work.'
'Short sales are not the easiest transactions to be involved with but Leona got me through the toughest time in my life and was successfull in getting my two banks to accept a satisfaction in full. She really gets the job done.'
'I moved to be with my mother in Massachussetts and left Leona in charge of selling my condo which she did and was not able to go back there to hire a moving company and oversee the packing of my personal belongings. Leona not only handled the transaction of the sale but also hired a moving company and insured that my belongings reached me within two days and had a successful closing. I would recommend her to any one with a real estate transaction because she is the best in her field. Thank you Leona'
