Get to know Beverly Jo Cole
I'm a native of Miami Beach and grew up in Miami, The Bahamas and the Florida Keys. It's fair to say I've never lived north of the 27th latitude, and that suits me just fine. South Florida isn't just a place, it's a lifestyle.
I attended Parochial school for my entire education. My Bachelors Degree is from St. Thomas University in Miami, where I majored in Political Science and minored in 17th Century English Literature.
A little about my Real Estate career to date: To start with, I've been in Real Estate since I was 4 years old. (That's when my mother opened her office). I grew up in the office and did secretarial work there while in High School. By this time, we were now a Century 21 franchisee. I obtained my Salesman's license while going to college and worked in the business until graduation. I then got my Broker's license and joined the management team at the office. Late in 1998 my mother made the decision to retire and I was ready to move from Miami to the Fort Lauderdale area, but didn't want an office overhead for the time being. I established myself as a Broker-Salesman and became very active with my current Board of Realtors. Well that lasted just under a decade and I missed having my own office, so I dove back in Broker/Owner waters and opened a boutique Real Estate Company, Southern Cross Real Estate, Inc.
As a member of the South Broward Board of Realtors, I've served on Education, Installment, Grievance, Professional Standards and Chaired or Co-chaired Standard Forms many times. I'm a two time past President of the Hollywood Area Women's Council of Realtors, past Director of MMAP, the Metro Miami Action Plan: an organization to help minorites in Miami-Dade County achieve first time home ownership. I have volunteered for Habitat for Humanity and was a volunteer on site for the first Habitat Home built in Miami in the early 1990's.
I've spent 35 years helping everyone from first time FHA buyers to seasoned investors purchase property. Whether it's a 1 bedroom condo or a waterfront estate, I've listed and sold just about every type of property South Florida has to offer.
I have an excellent team of agents who are dedicated to providing professional service to their customers.
My company's main marketing areas are:
BROWARD COUNTY including: Coral Springs, Cooper City, Davie, Dania, Fort Lauderdale, Hallandale, Hollywood, Hollywood Beach, Lauderhill, Miramar, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, Pompano, Southwest Ranches, Sunrise and Weston.
