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. So, I decided to break the cycle and make a change. That is when I became a broker and co-founded Luxury & Beach Realty. I am committed to supporting our agents and their success by offering one-on-one coaching, 100% commissions, low fees, and many more tools that contribute to changing real estate one career at a time.
Lauri Transtrom- Operations and HR Consultant
Partnering with Luxury & Beach Realty, Inc. in April 2018, I am dedicated to ensuring that the company maintains its position as one of the fastest-growing brokerages in the markets we serve. Utilizing my background in entrepreneurial ventures as well as human resources, I am excited to assist with strategic business goals; defining objectives; and fueling future growth. I am focused on developing a core team that believes in delivering quality service and support to our clients. Together, we collaborate in implementing industry best practices, and leveraging our agents with their individual business pursuits.
Ziomara “Zee” Martinez- Training Coordinator
I have over 20 years of diverse real estate experience in various markets. I love real estate and agent success is My TOP priority. In order to accomplish this, I facilitate comprehensive training workshops, and one-on-one mentoring to orientate our agents with the various tools that are essential to the success of their business. Working with our customers on a daily basis, I am always assessing ways to improve agent services. I believe that we, as a TEAM, excel beyond the “big box brokerages” in providing office support to our agents. And, for a fraction of the cost!
Gordon Francis – Recruiter
I’ve had a diverse career in sales, in addition to my experience as a Florida realtor. My goal is to understand agents’ individual business requirements to recommend tools and resources we offer through Luxury & Beach Realty. We are the best value in helping agents invest back into their business. When they are successful, we are successful. Such a win/win model makes it easy for me to be an ambassador for the company. Give us a call so we can discuss the advantages available to you!

I joined Luxury & Beach Realty in August of 2018 and immediately felt welcomed. My passion for helping others led me to the profession of real estate.

We provide them with the individual tools they need for success, and the freedom to run their business the way they want. I truly enjoy my involvement with hiring and on-boarding agents. I find it rewarding to see agents get the customized support needed from LBR!
