Carol Ann Benjamin
Carol Ann is originally from California and graduated from high school in Jacksonville. After a 20 year career as a senior litigation paralegal she earned her real estate license 10 years ago and joined Sunshine Realty’s team in 2011. She obtained her Resort & Second Home Property Specialist designation and is a Certified Negotiation Expert (only 2% of realtors nationwide hold this designation). Her prior legal experience has proved to be invaluable when representing real estate clients as she researches every aspect of a prospective property so that the client can make an educated financial decision before making an offer. She is a multi-million dollar producer.
Carol Ann was presented the 2007 Florida Association of Realtor’s Humanitarian Award, the 2007 VAAC Victim Service Advocate Award, and was named the National Association of Professional Women’s Woman of the Year for 2012-13, all for her participation in co-founding The Missing Link, a non-profit organization consisting of lawyers and paralegals who assist victims of domestic violence.
When asked if she enjoys her profession, you will always hear her say, “ I love, love, love what I do! I am so fortunate to live and work in St. Augustine. I wouldn’t live anywhere else!!!”
Carol Ann also hosts a weekly real estate radio show on WSOS 99.5 FM every Thursday from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. This show streams online at www.staugustineradio.com.
