Amy Isherwood grew up in the Chicagoland area in a home where the entrepreneurial spirit and an appreciation for hard work ran deep, having parents who ran their own business for over 40 years. Exposed early to Chicago’s astounding arts and culture, Amy fell in love with theatre and dreamt of being on the stage, which led her to the University of Iowa and a bachelor of fine arts in dance and a minor in theatre with honors. Out of college, Amy was excited to accept a position as a professional dancer with the top global cruise line corporation, Carnival Cruise Lines. She was soon promoted to Dance Captain, managing the cast and crew of the onboard production shows, and enjoying being a member of the hospitality staff of a floating hotel. After a ten-year career, a new venture was on the horizon. Living on the sea for a decade, it was impossible to imagine not being near the ocean. And with a passion for the arts and theatre, she needed a place that offered a rich and diverse cultural scene. South Florida was the perfect segue. Very quickly, Amy adopted South Florida and its people as her home. It wasn’t long before she realized that her unique talents could best help the people of South Florida and those who want to call South Florida home through a new career in real estate. Now Amy relies on her work ethic, competitive attitude, and finesse for customer service to help buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals, and guide them through the transaction as a trustworthy and knowledgeable advocate.

Next, she gives them the information they need to move through the process of buying or selling a home with the least possible stress or uncertainty. While others might push a client to quickly make a choice, so they can move on to the next client, Liz urges her clients to think it through carefully before making a decision. Liz, who is originally from Cali, Colombia, moved to New York, and resided there for 15 years, she then relocated to Miami, Florida. She graduated and received a MBA from Nova Southeastern.
