Pfeifer Realty Group proudly welcomes Wendy Kirschner to their team of real estate professionals.

Kirschner grew up primarily in Southeast Asia and South America as her father was a diplomat with the United States Foreign Service. She and her family lived in Bolivia, Colombia, Guatemala, Thailand, and Indonesia. Kirschner then attended Brigham Young University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree followed by a Master’s degree from Arizona State University.

After graduation Kirschner worked for the sports marketing firm Advantage International and then began teaching high school. Upon starting a family, she decided to leave the classroom and build her own small business which she did for the next twenty years as a private academic tutor. She and her husband, Rick, moved to Florida in 2009 from the Washington, D.C. area and more recently to Southwest Florida when he assumed the position as Canterbury School's Head of School in Fort Myers. Having bought and sold several houses in the mid-Atlantic area along with her fascination of the beauty of SW Florida helped her easily transition into selling real estate.

"I love the tropical feel of this area as it reminds me of my early years overseas. I truly believe this region provides a unique lifestyle for almost anyone,” said Kirschner.

Wendy and Rick are the parents of three boys, Jake, Alek, and Cade. The older two have now fled the coop and are attending college out in Utah. Their youngest is finishing high school at Canterbury School. An avid tennis player, Wendy and her family love spending quality time together outdoors which is why living on Sanibel's East End is ideal for their interests. They bike, walk, run, paddle board, and play lots of pickleball together as a family. They also are very involved with their church as well as in the lacrosse community in both Fort Myers and Sanibel.
