I've lived here all my life and I love Lakeland... as much as I love my job!

Cyleste is deeply connected to Lakeland. She is a lifetime resident, has working as a registered nurse for 31 years. Helping people is her passion, that’s why she went into the nursing field originally, and that helping people mentality shows in her real estate business. Cyleste supports numerous local organizations and charities - including Salvation Army, Huntington’s Foundation, and attends Family Worship Center. 

The Executive and Luxury Homes Team takes a team approach to real estate. Buying or selling a home is a complex, sophisticated and often deeply personal endeavor. The client deserves the full service and attention that only a team of experts can consistently provide. Working with us, you will have the personal attention traditionally associated with the client-agent relationship improved by the professionalism and consistency of a thoughtful business model. 

When Cyleste isn’t working, she enjoys cooking, traveling, collecting antiques, cuddling with her dogs Gracie and Milo, and spending time with her husband, family and friends.
