Jodi came to Florida in 1982 to attend the University of Miami and obtain her Masters Degree in Computer Information Systems and Business. Upon graduating she accepted a position as a Consultant with Arthur Anderson. After a couple of years she decided that she wanted to obtain a position in IT with a local company rather than constantly move from one client to another. Jodi ended up running the IT department for a dynamic real estate company, Radice Corporation in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Jodi has sold educational and IT solutions to the Fortune 500. She has been a resident of Boca Raton for 33 years, and all three of her children were born and raised there.
Jodi is a REALTOR with Signature Paradise Realty International, LLC, The Signature Real Estate Companies’ boutique luxury division. She is proud to be part of this exceptional real estate team, and takes tremendous pride in being a true “Real Estate Concierge”.
Jodi is President of Tropical Precision Lawns which specializes in professional commercial, residential, and HOA Landscape Maintenance and Management. Tropical Precision Lawn’s managing partner is Robin Goodell , Jodi’s husband who has over 27 years of experience as a Class A Golf Course Superintendent managing country club properties.

Real Estate has become a way for me to express my passion and take pride in helping people find their way home. As a first-generation immigrant to the United States from Trinidad and Tobago, a mother of three, a wife and a career-oriented woman, I’ve had to balance building my family, obtaining my degrees, and starting my business in a new country. I know what it means to build a life, raise a family, launch a career, and then start all over in a new country. That sense of discovery paired with determination and desire for accomplishment drove me to do my best and my best is what I strive to deliver to my clients.
My life has been a lifelong journey that has prepared me for the world I have now embarked upon. As I began my career, being an Accountant taught me the value of finance and analytics, which I believe is the foundation that allows me to confidently support my clients when making one of the largest financial decisions of their life. My decade-long entrepreneurial endeavors with McDonald’s Restaurants as Franchisee, taught me how to serve customers’ needs and is the foremost priority in any business, which means my clients will always come first. Finally, my pursuit of an MBA in Marketing has provided me with the tools I need to be successful in achieving results in the real estate industry; this I believe is the difference between being a listing agent, and actually delivering results for my clients.
While my professional and academic careers have positioned me for success in this field, success is defined not by what you achieve, but by what you do with those achievements. In that regard, this is best illustrated by my participation with the global volunteer network, Soroptimist of Boca Raton/ Deerfield chapter, and my advocacy and support of the Human Trafficking Coalition of the Palm Beaches. While both impact the lives of many individuals, my goal is to help and contribute towards the improvement of lives for women and girls worldwide, through education, awareness and advocacy.
To sum up myself in three words, I would say I’m grateful, passionate, and different, all qualities I believe are important to a successful real estate career. I will always have my clients’ interest at heart. I commit to working hard every day, ensuring that my clients understand their options, and receive my “concierge service”, so that they can find their home in Paradise!
Farida has been a Florida resident for over 15 years. With a bachelor’s degree in engineering and a professional background in credit repair and accounting, Farida provides her clients a combination of skills that connect buyers and sellers quickly with an attention to detail that ensures a smooth transaction. Farida lives in East Boca Raton with her husband and two daughters; enjoys painting, yoga, and spending time exploring all that South Florida has to offer with her family.
Robert is passionate about details. Actually, it’s more like details, data, and digital marketing. In his youth it led him to join the Peace Corps, learn more than a bit of Russian, and build a team of local IT professionals to create an internet commerce portal to increase agricultural trade between the former republics of the Soviet Union. 15 years ago, he combined all three passions to meticulously research every spot in the United States based on climate and cost of living. That project resulted in he, his wife Farida Morris (also a Realtor with Signature Paradise!), and his two daughters moving from Chicago to East Boca Raton Florida before enduring another winter. Thrilled with every aspect of South Florida he designed websites for local realtors until he returned to an executive marketing role – this time supporting independent investors with tools to identify and analyze commercial real estate opportunities.
Robert’s mantra is that details, data, and digital marketing result in peace of mind for both buyers and sellers in either retail or commercial real estate transactions. When listing a home, he works with his clients to determine the top competitive advantages to create a target market for PPC and social media advertising. When helping investors locate a property that meets their requirements, he relies on data mining combined with extensive proforma analysis refined over decades to zero in on the best opportunities.
A graduate of Rutgers University School of Business, Robert spends his free time exploring all that South Florida offers with his wife and daughters.
Debra Raburn brought her Mid-Western values to South Florida 35 years ago. Her passion for the beach, palm trees, real estate, community, volunteer work, sport teams and everything that is Florida makes her a good choice for your Real Estate needs. Whether it be buying, selling, or investing, she has the experience needed to deliver your desired results

I am a Realtor for Signature Paradise Realty, focusing on Palm Beach & Broward Counties, FL, where I help my customers buy and sell homes & condos, and rent too. I treat people as individuals because everyone’s real estate needs are different. I share my wealth of knowledge about real estate with my BUYERS (getting them the lowest possible price) and SELLERS (getting them the highest possible price). I personally show my listings every time a buyer wants to see them (no lock box).
My 26 years of experience in financial services in Manhattan has honed my skills in customer service, contract negotiations, and making sure all the details are covered. I have a BS in Marketing.
Outside of Real Estate, my interests include: biking up to 50 miles; golf (12 handicap); pickleball; tennis; kayaking; and walking with my Golden Doodle “Cooper”.
I am happy to help you with your Real Estate needs.
As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. I have been a resident in Palm Beach and Broward County for over 40 years. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
