Dane is a native of Panama City and very knowledgeable about the immediate and surrounding areas. His family moved here when he was five. After graduating high school and Gulf Coast Community College, he moved to Pensacola where he finished his bachelors and masters degrees. He joined the military and served on active duty before transferring to civil service. After moving around the world in his government career, he returned to Panama City where he still has family.
He began his real estate career with Century 21® in Maryland. He then joined Keller Williams Success Realty as a sales agent when relocating to Florida. It was always his desire to have his own real estate company, so in April, 2014, he obtained his Broker’s license and founded McKenzie Real Estate. As he slowly builds his company, his focus, as well as that of McKenzie Real Estate, is the customer.
Dane is also a Certified Public Accountant and has been assisting clients with their tax and accounting needs for over 20 years. It became clear early on how useful it is to have both of these skills (tax/accounting and real estate). Often times while viewing a home to buy or contemplating the sale of their home, a customer will ask about the tax consequences of the transaction. Other agents are limited with the advice they can provide to customers, but having the skills and experience, Dane can answer the questions on the spot.
