Having moved over a dozen times during her childhood, Angela always found things to love about each place — "to make it feel like mine, to make it feel like something I connected to and to make it feel like home. Finding a bit of magic in things large and small." She learned to think of moving as a grand adventure, where she consistently played the 'part' of the perpetual new kid on the block, with a new school, new street, and new house. What may have started as a necessity became a habit and a passion. Over the following decades, she received a design degree from Pratt Institute and worked as a designer in NYC. "I enjoyed the work but missed being surrounded by people, so I returned to school to pursue psychology and became a counselor. That career fed my desire to connect, encourage, and be of some help to those who came to me with their struggles. It also made me appreciate on an entirely new level how incredibly diverse and beautiful we all are and how much our struggles ultimately make us better for them.” Eight years ago, Angela and her husband discovered Southwest Florida and fell madly in love with Bonita Springs. They both decided to pursue their true passion — real estate. "We began as part-time agents but soon realized we could not imagine a more satisfying career. We quickly obtained broker's licenses and opened our company, growing from two to four to a full-service real estate team of eleven in only eight years!" They discovered Highlands three years ago and decided to make Highlands their summertime escape! "The natural beauty of the mountains, the hospitality, the food, the people - we were and still are entirely charmed.” The joy of helping people on new journeys has been a blessing while living here and in Florida. "We love everything about Southwest Florida and our new mountaintop community in North Carolina, from the fantastic weather to phenomenal food, but mostly – the people we have had the great fortune to meet along the way.

I am the founder and co-owner of The Dellatorè Real Estate Group in SWFL and a broker with Landmark Realty Group at the Highlands office; I am at your service and happy to help!"
