Office Team

Our team here in the office is a highly qualified group of people that aid in making the company flourish and grow every day.

Julie Simpson- Licensed Real Estate Broker/ Owner

After spending years in the real estate business working as a realtor for many big companies in the area, such as, Century 21 and Keller Williams, I realized something was missing. I was working too hard for my commissions to give away such a large percentage of it. I was paying too much in high franchise fees and wanted a change. That is when I became a broker and co-founded Luxury & Beach Realty. We are committed to keeping our fees low and giving 100% commission to our realtors because we believe in a fair market. Here at Luxury & Beach Realty we are committed to changing real estate one career at a time.

Ziomara Zee Martinez- Office Manager & Marketing Specialist

My love for Real Estate started in 1997, as I interned at a very prominent Real Estate company in Upstate New York while I earned my degree in Graphic Design. Over the years I have worked with many Realtors & offices, however, I have found my home. Ensuring the success of every Real Estate Agent in our office is my TOP priority. I oversee the day to day operations and provide a high level of support to our agents and our Broker. As a graphic designer, I can also provide an added service to everyone, from email campaigns to custom designs, our agents get the best of both worlds. We have extensive training in the office to help our agents with the 20% of relevant tasks that are essential to their business. We as a TEAM, go above & beyond better than the big box brokerages, for a fraction of the cost.

I have been a licensed realtor since 1998. I have worked for several companies in my career and have learned the advantages of what each company offers. My goal is to ensure that Luxury & Beach Realty, Inc. provides the best in service and support for our agents, while giving them the benefit of the 100% commission and the tools to build their business. When they are successful, then we are successful.
