Caitlynd Born-Dohm

License Number: SL3527354

I was born and raised surrounded by the crystalline teal waters, sandy beaches, and coconut-filled palm trees in the U. S. Virgin Islands. I then moved to Charleston, South Carolina, where the primary ingredients were lovely pink camellias and plantation-style homes. I missed the sunshine and warmth, so I moved here to Citrus County Florida six years ago, to reside amongst the stilt homes built on the wetlands, and the sun-kissed fishermen on the piers. I have always had a passion for real estate and exploring new places, but now, instead of simply scrolling through Zillow for fun, I joined the National Association of REALTORS® and signed up as an agent with EXIT Realty Leaders, a franchise of EXIT Realty Corp International, which has been owned and operated by the Wade family since 1999! Here, I am surrounded by an amazing team of like-minded individuals comprised of client advocates, market experts, and people that have been around and know a thing or two! In this age of endless technology, having stellar communication, innovative ideas, and a streamlined process has never been more important. In between listings and closings, my time consists of reading, writing, spending time with my family, and taking informal photos of nature. I am so honored to help my clients, whether sellers, buyers, or investors, and I can't wait to grab a coffee with you to discuss all things real estate! Please feel free to call, text, or email me.

Laura Williamson



For many years the Real Estate business has been a personal passion for Laura Duda. As an investor in residential property she quickly learned how to find the best deal available for the current market. Flipping homes with some of the most undesirable conditions became a fun, challenging and extremely rewarding experience. In 2014 Duda decided it was time to share what she had learned about the Real Estate business. She became a new addition to the Exit Realty Leaders team located in Beverly Hills, Florida. Duda brings over a decade of customer service skills to this family orientated group. Through the years she has proven to have a strong work ethic, dedication and an enthusiastic approach with her clients. This has always left customers with a positive experience. The excitement she shows for helping people find their perfect home is uncanny! Real estate certainly holds a part of her heart and a huge part of her time. However, Duda does find time to escape and enjoy the natural beauty of Florida. Being outside is truly a relaxing experience! Her hobbies include golfing, horseback riding lessons and camping. Duda believes there is no other place better than the small community of Citrus County to be able to enjoy nature at its best!

Robert Dyson



Robert Dyson III loves all that Citrus County Florida has to offer and decided to make it his permanent home in the summer of 2014. One of the main reasons why he made the jump from the northeast is because the weather allows for year round outdoor activity. When Dyson is not energetically helping his clients find their dream home, you can find him in one of two places. Either on one of the twenty golf courses found throughout the county practicing on his golf swing or on his motorcycle taking in the breathtaking scenery found on the rolling hills and winding back roads of Citrus and Marion Counties. One thing Dyson always stresses to clients who have not yet seen this area is “This is not your typical Florida, you always think Florida is just flat”! Dyson has worked in many customer service jobs throughout the years but states being a Real Estate Agent is by far the best experience he has had in public relations. Purchasing a home is one of the most important decisions people make in their lives and Dyson always goes that extra mile to help make that dream come true!

Vicki Jeffers

License Number: SL3510261

I moved from southeast Michigan to Citrus County along with my husband in the summer of 2019. We moved for many reasons, mainly to be near family, but also to take in all that the Nature Coast has to offer. We both enjoy the outdoors; the weather here is perfect for that. Being near the water is also a big bonus for me. I love wildlife as well! So, between the weather, water and wildlife, for me, there is no better place to be. I chose EXIT Realty Leaders because I want to be associated with quality and integrity. Their dedication to the industry as well as their associates is exemplary. My goal is to provide customers with the best possible experience when buying or selling their next home. From first time buyers to those wanting to downsize, and everything in between, I want to help them find the perfect home.
