When Sheila Awad entered the real estate profession, she brought with her a passion for work, for delivering superior service to her clients and a genuine willingness to go the extra mile to attain total satisfaction for those who sought her assistance.
Sheila is noted for doing business with zeal and enthusiasm, for having the absolute need to make things happen whether it’s selling homes to buyer/clients who’re looking for the best location and value that is available or finding the perfect house for that single professional or family that knows exactly what they want. Rest is seldom an option for Sheila, who works hard until her clients are more than satisfied.
She’s lived in Tampa for nearly twenty years, having arrived from Texas (just her) in a used car pulling a U-Haul trailer with all of her belongings. Just days later she would meet the man who would become her lifetime partner, Alex, a senior staffer with the City of Tampa. In her new hometown, she took time out to earn a Bachelor of Arts with Distinction at the University of South Florida. She now lives with her husband, the man she met days after crossing the Tampa city limits and their four beautiful children (two boys and two girls) in South Tampa not far from Plant High School.
Shelia has a strong background in community service and business. She has been a fundraiser for The Spring, a shelter for victims of domestic violence; a fundraiser and community relations specialist for The University of Tampa; program director at YMCA Metropolitan Tampa; a general assistant in a Tampa real estate office; marketing manager for a law firm; and sole owner of a retail store she founded from the bottom up.
In addition, she received accolades from the business community and then Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio for leading the charge in founding the Palma Ceia Business and Design District. That act alone injected new vigor into a strip of MacDill Avenue commercial businesses that up to that point was experiencing only mediocre activity. She is also currently on the Development Committee for The Spring of Tampa Bay and recently chaired The Purple Gala at Busch Gardens.
On weekends for more than ten years, she has found time as a volunteer to teach Sunday School at Christ The King Church, where she and her family regularly attend services.
Sheila is as much a part of the Tampa Community as its skyline and stands ready to act quickly on the residential real estate needs, both buying and selling, of all who seek the best our area has to offer. Call her today and let her show you what a joy finding that dream home or other property can be.
