“You can no longer put yourself first”. That’s what Beth Flerlage said to herself when their first child came into the world. The focus would now become providing for, teaching, and nurturing the children. It was a concept that she not only took to heart, it has spilled over into the lives of children beyond their own throughout the years.
Beth grew up in an entrepreneurial family. Her father always had few small businesses going, and her mother owned a fabric store. Some of her fondest memories were doing crafts with her Mom...sewing, quilting, stained glass, ceramic dolls, and more. She graduated from the University of Maryland with a Business Management degree and also completed two years of Interior Design, furthering the entrepreneurial direction and what was to become an important future talent in real estate. Part of her passion is seeing rooms in a different way, and bringing ideas that her clients might not have considered.
Today, Beth and Nick, her husband of almost 30 years, work side by side and specialize in helping active professionals or retirees to locate or market local homes to suit their changing needs. They are recognized for their superior knowledge of the Venice lifestyle and its active communities. It’s actually how they earned the title of ‘Lifestyle Locators’. They are consistently in the top 3% of all RE/MAX agents, have been inducted into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame, and voted ‘Best of Venice’ for the past 7 years. The achievement they are most proud of, however, is the RE/MAX Spirit award, given to those who have greatly contributed to their community. Beth has also earned the certifications of Certified Professional Home Stager & Redesigner and Certified Expert E-Designer, helping her put her crafty talents to the best use for their clients.
In addition to their commitment to real estate, Nick and Beth have served on boards or been very involved through the years in many Venice youth organizations, including Miss Venice Fast Pitch, Project Graduation, Venice High Boys Basketball Boosters, and Children First.
When Beth isn’t serving her clients or the community, she spends time with Nick and their children, Zach and Lexie. She continues to hone her crafting skills by making jewelry, stained glass, mosaics, and painting. She likes to creatively
modify recipes and regularly reads motivational and entrepreneurial books. Between running a real estate company, crafting, and her community involvement, her understanding of an active lifestyle is just one more reason her clients treasure her contributions and commitment.
