Meet the LBR Team

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.

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!

Bill Sullivan – Human Resources

I joined Luxury & Beach Realty in 2014 as a realtor, giving myself a substantial increase in income due to our 100% commission fee structure. I am proud to be part of a company that encourages and assists our agents in growing their business. So, when asked to contribute to management and administrative initiatives, I gladly said yes. I enjoy using my past corporate management experience to participate in the professional development of our excellent office team. We are all about process improvements and change management, particularly in the areas of administration and communication. The end results are efforts that guarantee total team success.
