Real estate has always been a passion of mine stemming back to high school when I worked for Palm Coast Plantation as an Assistant Event Coordinator. Through that, I got to witness first hand the expertise, dedication and hard work required to sell Real Estate.
As a life-long resident of Flagler County with 9+ years of Real Estate experience under my belt, I have a wealth of knowledge of this area as well as all the surrounding areas.
While attending UCF to obtain my business degree, I worked at the Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast where I was able to learn the ins and outs of the areas that resort condos, townhomes and amenities.
In 2009 I decided to give sales a shot. Working for a sales outsourcing company as an Office Depot sales rep, I moved to New York City to do door to door sales. NYC was exciting but wasn't home to me, and in 2011 I moved back to Flagler County to pursue my career as a Realtor®.
I've been in Real Estate ever since, helping customers buy and sell their dream homes. I have dealt in nearly all aspects of real estate, from short-sales and foreclosures, to luxury waterfront properties.

Hey there, I'm Teri, a Jersey native turned Florida enthusiast, and I'm thrilled to share a slice of my journey with you.

Little did I know, those roots would one day bloom into a love for helping people find their own piece of paradise.

Each role added a brushstroke to the canvas of my professional story. Picture this: a kid from Jersey dreaming of a palm tree in the yard.

Fast forward to today, and I call Palm Coast my home. Nestled along a saltwater canal, we built our home. It's not just a house; it's a testament to dreams realized and memories waiting to be made. Now, I've found my true calling as a Realtor. There's something incredibly fulfilling about helping others find their perfect place in the sun.

Hello, I’m Paul McDonald, a retired police officer turned Realtor in Palm Coast, Florida. I specialize in Palm Coast, Flagler Beach, Bunnell and all of Flagler County. I believe knowledge is power, especially in real estate. It is important to me to educate my sellers and buyers about the real estate market and process from start to finish, giving them the confidence to make informed decisions. In turn, their experience is smooth and stress-free. I help buyers find their dream home and sellers get the best possible price for their property.
"We are first time home buyers so we had tons of questions and Paul patiently answered all of them in a very professional but honest manner. We found a house we loved and Paul was on it. Up until the closing, he was there. It was the best outcome and experience we could have hoped for. We didn't imagine buying a house to go this smoothly. With Paul's guidance, we were able to put our minds at ease. Now, we're living in the house of our dreams!"
- Naara & Brian A.
"After my wife, myself, and Paul developed a plan; Paul immediately put it into play. The first weekend after putting it on the market, Paul had an incredible open house--he even brought homemade cookies! Paul, almost daily, kept us in the loop as to what the market was doing and if we should change our strategy or stay put for a while. He is very trustworthy, honest professional. He will work hard for your success. My wife and I highly recommend Paul McDonald!"
- Tom & Mary K.
It is very important to me that a person in any business be hard working, knowledgeable, responsive, accountable and honest. That is what makes a professional. I have carried these traits throughout my career and will put them to work for you.
I retired after sixteen years as a Police Officer in Colorado. My family and I have always wanted to live in a community by the ocean that supports our values and offers a bright future for our children. After searching all over Florida, we found what we were looking for right here in Palm Coast!
As an officer, I spoke with people to solve problems and worked with them to find a solution. I’ve found that it isn’t that different helping sellers and buyers learn about the current market and move forward with a purchase or sale if it makes sense for them. I must admit that helping people in real estate is more fun!
I believe that it is also important to know what is going on in our community and be involved. I am a member of a local business group, Leads Into The Future and a member of the Public Policy Committee through the Flagler County Association of Realtors. I continuously educate myself in real estate and have completed the ‘Success Series’, Short Sales, Reverse Mortgage, 1031 Exchange and Property Management real estate classes. I’ve organized a ‘beach clean-up’ for Flagler Beach. My family and I are also very involved with our church. We enjoy going to our beaches and supporting our local businesses.
