About Jodi Heifner-DiVietro


About Me:

As a Realtor, Interior Designer & Investor, homes are not only a profession, they are my passion. Buying, selling, or renovating a home can be an overwhelming experience. The good news is, it doesn't have to be, especially when you work with a seasoned professional. With over 25 years of personal experience in real estate, interior design, investing, luxury listings, property management and construction, the process has become an expertise, let me and the SandCitySold Team help! Collectively, we cover real estate in ALL of Tampa, St Pete, Clearwater, Orlando, and surrounding areas.

When you hire an EXP Realty agent, you also enjoy the benefit of working with an extended real estate network not only in Florida and the U.S., but all over the world! If I do not service your area of interest, I have a an experienced EXP team member ready to refer. Additionally, our network of trusted professionals including mortgage lenders, insurance agents, title companies, contractors and more, are ready to assist and ensure a smooth buying and selling process.

Helping sellers get top dollar for their home, in the least amount of time, is our #1 priority. When selling your home, there are 3 key components to a successful transaction:

  • Pricing: Absolutely nothing is more important than pricing your home at current market value. An in-depth comparative market analysis (CMA) will guide us to the right price. This is an ongoing process, and we will stay on top of every transaction happening in your area.
  • Condition: Listings MUST put their best foot forward. All listings include small renovation consultation (if necessary) and minor staging utilizing your décor, or accessories from our small in-house inventory. Full furniture and accessory rental will be referred to a trusted third party. Curb appeal must also not be forgotten.
  • Marketing: This is self-explanatory, and we are experts at this! We will dive into this at our first meeting.

Purchasing a home in this hot market can be a challenge, but don’t worry, we have many tricks up our sleeve to help you get the home of your dreams at the price you need. Location is key, but the home may need a little updating. With a solid Interior Design background personally, OF COURSE I will help you envision all the space could be. And with my network of professional referrals, we can help you get it done. Further Interior Design and renovation services are available through Xavier Interior Design.

Dreaming of moving to Florida? Fantastic! I can guarantee you won’t regret it! Along the Gulf here in Tampa/St Pete/Clearwater and surrounding areas, one will find a vibrant lifestyle consisting of world-famous beaches, dynamic cuisine, and fantastic culture. Relocation has also become a specialty following a personal move from Illinois to Florida in 2020. Moving across county is a HUGE undertaking – not to mention very scary - but I guarantee it’s worth it! Through trial and error of my own, I am happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about relocating to Florida specifically, as well as answer questions you may not even know you have yet (and there are many!). It has been a pleasure assisting many others achieve the Florida Life Dream these past few years!

  • Bachelor of Science, Interior & Environmental Design, Illinois State University; Minor: Construction Management
