Manuela Hendrickson, Broker/Owner


Manuela wants to make the real estate transaction an understandable and satisfactory experience. She focuses as much on guiding the first-time homebuyer to fulfilling their dream as she works hand in hand with the foreign investor in meeting their real estate needs and goals. Manuela’s service area is Florida, The USA, and the international market. She has the patience it takes to realize that your needs come first. Overcoming difficulties during a transaction and problem solving are challenges that Manuela will tackle for you.

Tommy Gibbs, Realtor

Tommy Gibbs, REALTOR®


As a former college athlete, NCAA college basketball referee for 17 years and having served in United States Marine Corps, I have a unique perspective on how important teamwork and discipline are when working with customers, Realtors, and lending institutions.

For most of my adult life, I’ve owned new car dealerships and been in the business of consulting and teaching leadership and communication skills in that industry.

I’ve purchased over 30 properties in my lifetime, so I know full well from both the selling and buying sides how frustrating and stressful the experience can be.

My number one goal in working with you as a buyer or seller is to make the experience as easy and as seamless as possible.

I look forward to the opportunity of working with you. I am available 24/7.

Stefanie Gruber

Stefanie Gruber, REALTOR®


Born in New Jersey, my parents moved me to Florida when I was 12. I grew up in Palm Beach Gardens, making my debut in the Real Estate Business in 2003 working for a Real Estate Attorney/ Title Insurance Company in West Palm Beach. Progressing from assistant, to post closer, to closing agent, my life and work brought me to Port St Lucie, Florida, where we purchased our first home.

I spent the next 10 years working for a Title Company/ Real Estate Attorney, bouncing back and forth when needed as the market twisted and turned. After the market crashed, I started a short sale division for the attorney’s office and spent a couple of years negotiating short sales. As title insurance got busy again, I turned over the reins of the short sale division and went back to title insurance, where I did title exams, closings and policies; working with Realtors and their clients, along with their Mortgage Companies, to make people’s dream of home-ownership come true.

When my daughter came to St Petersburg to go to USFSP, we absolutely fell in love with the area!! I left my desk behind, got my real estate license and took my career to what I REALLY love about Real Estate, the huge smiles and pure joy that comes at the end of a successful closing!

I love everything about my job!! I love meeting people, finding out their needs and wants and hopes and dreams, and then pairing them with the perfect house, or the perfect buyer… it truly is my passion to work closely with my clients to achieve a successful, stress-free closing whether selling your home or searching for your dream house!

With my background in Title Insurance and Retail Management, along with years of working closely with Real Estate Attorneys, I have the knowledge and tools necessary to make your real estate transaction smooth and stress-free from contract to close.

Need to Sell? Call me! I will get your home sold, fast and for top dollar!

Searching aimlessly for your dream home? Let me help guide you through the process so we can find the home of your dreams!!!
