Shannon Lease joined The Naumann Group’s Coastal Branch Division as a Real Estate Sales Associate in 2017. A native Floridian, she earned a Master’s Degree in Counseling from Florida State University and spent the next 25 years in both executive level state government and the private sector – managing mission-oriented non-profits in Florida’s Panhandle, including Apalachicola Riverkeeper, a 1500 member-supported non-profit dedicated to restoring and preserving the Apalachicola River and Bay. Unable to put off her passion for real estate any longer, Shannon is thrilled to be teaming up with Catherine Korfanty, a Broker Associate with The Naumann Group Real Estate, Inc.
Throughout her life, Shannon has lived and adventured all along the Forgotten Coast and knows it well. St. George Island and its neighboring port, Apalachicola, are most special to her: “I’ve always loved the community here with its colorful blend of maritime history, commercial and recreational fishing and our low-impact tourism. I really do understand the powerful lure of our beautiful coastline. My dream to live here came true. Now, I’m excited for the opportunity to combine my unique knowledge of ‘all things local’ with my professional skills in social media marketing and photography to help others make their dreams a reality, too!”
Shannon is currently living her dream in a quaint cottage in Apalachicola’s Historic District, just two blocks from the pristine waters of Apalachicola Bay, its world-renown oysters and some of the best recreational fishing in the world.
