This coveted designation is awarded to real estate practitioners by the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council (REBAC) of the National Association of REALTORS who meet the specified educational and practical experience criteria.In 2009, with the change of the economy and the real estate market, Fran stayed on the leading edge of real estate sales by earning her Short Sale and Foreclosure Recource certification.

She specialized in the Ponte Vedra / Sawgrass Resort & Country Club (home of the famous TPC Golf Course), as well as the North Beaches area and helped "break-ground" at the brand new development of Jacksonville Golf & County Club. This background has given Fran detailed knowledge in resort condo, home, and lot sales, as well as experience in working with builders and developers.Her husband, Mark, or Mac, as he is known on the base and by close friends, was a Commander and helicopter pilot in the US Navy at the Pacific Missile Range Facility/NAS Barking Sands in west Kauai. He retired from the Navy in 2004 after 22 years of active duty and is now working back out at the Navy base, PMRF, as a civilian helicopter pilot and airfield contractor.Having been stationed in Hawaii before, the McDonald family felt they had moved back home and decided that Kauai was their 'last move'.
