Angela Pate, as a partner of the Pate Team, helps homeowners get quicker sales and
better selling prices by staging and designing or renovating homes listed by she and her husband, John Pate. Often staging is gratis to sellers who list with The Pate Team. Angela believes that her experiences as a world traveler for almost 25 years are perhaps as important as her formal education. Angela believes she and her husband’s days as globetrotters have given them insight and understanding of many countries they visited.
Her “extended education” in the university of international travel began as a resident of Singapore in 1975, when her husband took a job as editor of an international offshore oil journal. She holds an undergraduate degree from Elmira College and a Master’s from Syracuse University.
Today, she is active in the local art scene as a supporter of the Atlantic Classical Orchestra and the Vero Beach Museum of Art. She is an active member of the Junior League, The Piano Duet Club of Vero Beach, Beachsiders Toastmasters, and the Junior League Sustainers Book Club.
She likes to jest that food is the only edible art form. In fact, she is a gourmet cook and author of “Cooking By The Seat of Your Pants,” which has been a popular seller at the Vero Beach Book Center. She suggests the recipe to selling your home quickly and with minimal stress begins by contacting The Pate Team.

An honest, dedicated, and hard-working person who loves to help others, she is also very thankful to her loving parents for providing her and her younger sister with an invaluable foundation through Bible education.

REALTOR, ACCREDITED LUXURY HOME SPECIALIST
Greetings! I’m Camille Yates, and I look forward to serving you to help fulfill your real estate needs.
I’ve been involved in real estate all of my adult life, primarily in investment and management and now sales. I enjoy helping people - to connect them to special things that will enhance their lives. Although I’m a sixth generation Texan, I moved to Florida in 1984. My passion for this area runs deep.
To educate people about this beautiful region, I wrote a book called Treasured Waters which describes the history and ecology of the area. Did you know that our surrounding Indian River Lagoon is the most diverse estuary in North America? That’s just one of the many things that make Vero Beach and the Treasure Coast a unique place to live, work and play.
I’m a highly motivated individual, personable, professional, possess excellent communications skills and have a commitment to superior customer service. I’m enthusiastic, creative, confident and poised in interactions with individuals at all levels. Along with my involvement in real estate, I was also a licensed mortgage broker, so I know how important it is to help people get pre-qualified for a mortgage prior to making an offer on a property. I’m also skilled at coordinating and staying on top of things to ensure that transactions are closed in a timely fashion.
When I’m not working for clients assisting them with real estate sales and management, I can be found walking my Labrador retriever along Ocean Drive or boating in the Indian River Lagoon. I’m an avid outdoor enthusiast, bird watcher, orchid grower and like to landscape using native plants to provide food and habitat for butterflies, birds and more. I’m actively involved as a volunteer in this community, and throughout my career I’ve served on numerous government and non-profit boards in the region always striving to improve the quality of life for all. I was recently inducted as a director in the Rotary Club of Vero Beach. Rotary is an international service organization, and our club in Vero was established in 1926. As a Rotarian, I believe in "service above self," and will work hard for you as we accomplish your goals to buy or sell property.

Hailing from Princeton, NJ, via the Chicago suburbs of Wheaton and Glen Ellyn as a child,
Deeann Lemmerling’s love for Vero Beach is evident.
Having visited the Treasure Coast since childhood, and as an adult when her parents divided their retirement years between Chicagoland and Stuart, FL, it was a visit to Vero friends during the particularly rough winter of 2014 that Deeann and husband, Luc, fell in love with the area. So much so that they purchased a house before heading back to NJ! “It was meant to be,” she says, “We listed our house in NJ and had a full price offer in a week!
Several months later Luc retired from his OB-GYN practice, we became full-time Vero residents, and we have never looked back!”
Deeann’s career titles make for a perfect fit for real estate. She had a successful career as a Registered Nurse. She truly cares about people. She ran a well-known gourmet food store and catering business in Princeton called Bon Appetit for nearly 20 years with her brother-in-law, Michel before he sold it and became the general manager of a startup farm-to-fork market in Hopewell, NJ with founders Robin and Jon McConaughy called Brick Farm Market. She’s very service oriented.
Five step-children and grandchild #10 coming the end of August 2017, Deeann finds time, when not walking her furry child Wallace, a Bichon Frise, to volunteer at United Against Poverty in Vero. She assists with their annual Turkey Trot and helps students write resumes then does mock interviews with them so they may better reenter the workforce. “It is a great local organization so I try to help out whenever I am asked to do so. I have made some good friends there,” she declared.
Considering all that, it should be no surprise that some of Deeann’s hobbies include baking, cooking, walking Wallace on the beach, crossword puzzles, reading, biking with Luc, and watching HGTV and the Food Network. And that now, Deeann Lemmerling is pairing two of her many loves…her passion for people with her interest in real estate…to start a new chapter in her life in this paradise she calls home. Feel free to reach out to her anytime at 609-575-7710 or Deeann@alexmacwilliam.com or meet her at www.AlexMacWilliam.com.

highly regarded J.M. Stringer Gallery of Fine Art, for the last 15 years located in Bernardsville, NJ and for the past four years on Ocean Drive in Vero Beach. Over that time, John has helped transform his clients’ homes from just a house into a haven of beauty, culture and refinement.
In his words:
When I discovered Vero Beach after searching in other parts of Florida, I said “I found my place”. You know when a community suits you, and for me Vero Beach was exactly the type of place I could call home. It appeals to people with an “artful eye” because it is special, naturally beautiful, quietly sophisticated and genuinely friendly.
It was seven years ago when after my very first visit to Vero that I purchased my home. I have never regretted that decision once. Since that time, I have come to treasure this “Village by the Sea” more and more and feel blessed to live here.
So many of my friends, clients and colleagues have visited and quickly see what makes Vero special. Not surprisingly, many have ultimately purchased homes here as well. Encouraged by many of those friends, I decided to become a Realtor so I can help more people to become part of this exceptional community and find their own slice of paradise.
After buying and selling many homes myself over the years, I am very aware that for many the process of buying and or selling real estate can be a daunting experience. My goal is to make it as stress free as possible, guiding my clients throughout the process and conclude the transaction in the most professionally pleasing manner.
My goal is to offer full service relocation services. Finding the perfect home is of course first and foremost. Identifying ones needs is crucial. For some, a grand home by the sea or river is the right type of property. However for most, it’s finding that perfect little jewel of a property. Or for some looking for a project, it may be finding that gem in the rough that has incredible potential. Whatever is the ideal fit, I’m committed to finding you the perfect home.
Once a property is purchased, if requested, I am happy to help with design services and to be a guide in finding reliable tradesmen as well as sourcing the best of Vero Beach vendors and beyond so my clients may properly outfit and furnish their homes to reflect their own personal style.
I look forward to meeting you and learning how I may be of assistance to you. Welcome to an exciting time in your life and to discovering the magic of Vero Beach.

You will find Kyle to be a gentle man – attentive, kind, and genuinely curious about their needs, desires and dreams – but he also has your back.

As a Vero Beach resident since 1989, I have experienced Vero Beach through unique eyes...
as a student of our local schools, as a working adult, and as a parent with a family now in school. My interests are everything coastal! I love the warm weather and all activities which allow me to be outside. Married to the love of my life, we absolutely live for watching our children perform gymnastics, surf, play soccer, volleyball and flag football.
We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity of watching our daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter grow into a beautiful little family right here in Vero.
My decision to join the real estate market was naturally the next step to enhancing the estate management company my husband and I built together. We have the privilege of working with some of the best barrier island residents while managing and maintaining their private homes. Before building our business, I had the opportunity to work as an American Sign Language Interpreter for the Indian River County School District which helped me develop empathy, understanding and patience. Prior to interpreting I learned a tremendous amount of leadership skills, problem-solving skills, project management, communication skills, customer service and business ethics as the Client Services Manager at Dodgertown Sports and Conference Center (now known as Historic Dodgertown) preceding the Los Angeles Dodgers departure.
As the Executive Administrator of the John’s Island Community Service League, I have developed a huge amount of respect for Vero’s big-hearted businesses and residents. It is true testimony of how philanthropic our community is by their continued generous support of our local agencies in need.
Vero has so much to offer… while enjoying the smell of the salt in the air and listening to the waves crash on the shore, you are able to experience our small town feel dining at one of Vero’s quaint restaurants, visiting a local brewery, enjoying Vero’s art and antique district, walking through the exhibit at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, catching a show at Riverside Theater or strolling down our oceanside boutiques and shops.
I look forward to helping you find your perfect home in our little piece of paradise!

We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak" so said
the Greek Philosopher, Epictetus, around 55AD
If you're buying property:
Do you want a Realtor to tell you what you should buy. What you should not buy. What you need?
Or, do you want to work with someone who listens to what you're saying. What you're thinking. What your priorities are. What your ideas are. What motivates you.
If you're selling property:
Do you want your Realtor to just say "yes" to everything?
Or do you want to be involved with someone who understands how the market works. Understands the process of selling. Can give you a good guide to pricing. Can help make your house more sellable. Can give you real supportive help through the process.
I've been in the "people" business all my life. Caring for people and managing people. Supporting people & helping them work to timetables and deadlines. Looking after the finer details of business. Negotiating with others. Making sure things go smoothly. I've worked in large corporations and run my own company for 18 years. I understand how business works.
I'm originally from London, England and with my American wife Kitty, we moved to Vero Beach in 2002. We love it here and we're both actively involved in the community. It's the best place in the world.
If you need support in any Real Estate business, I'm your man.
Just give me a ring and find out why so many others have been appreciative of my help.
