As full-time residents, they’ve learned everything they can about their community. As REALTORS®, they’re determined to make sure others learn too.

With all those amenities, Vero’s natural beauty is still vigorously preserved by its residents. I wish I could tell you how many times we pinch ourselves because we actually live here. We love our Vero and we want others to experience that same joy.”
Their passion for their community and philanthropy led them to Dale Sorensen Real Estate (DSRE). “DSRE is the industry leader and dominant presence in Vero Beach and beyond, not only in real estate, but also in community involvement,” John said. “We love belonging to an organization and being part of a team of people who are just as passionate about enriching Vero Beach and the surrounding area as they are about selling homes. It is also refreshing to be part of an organization that is both supremely professional and profoundly family oriented.”
John has a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and Human Relations from St. Joseph’s College. Cindy earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication and Psychology from George Washington University. Both are members of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).

VERO BEACH, FL/JULY 2020 ─ Dale Sorensen Real Estate (DSRE) is pleased to announce that sales associate Colleen Liebert has joined the company’s real estate team.
Colleen began her real estate career early in life. After 58 years in Kentucky, she moved to the Treasure Coast, landing in Vero Beach to enjoy her late husband’s retirement. Colleen’s background and experience have given her a deep understanding of all facets of real estate, from building brick and mortar properties to helping people find a dream home. Her story reads like a novel about a true hard-working, American family.
Colleen became very knowledgeable about residential real estate growing up in the family’s real estate business in Kentucky. Her grandfather built the first commercial strip center in Jefferson County in 1954. For years, Colleen did the accounting and office management for the operation and was licensed to sell real estate in 1974. Her husband began developing shopping centers for the business and she took over managing those properties, writing the leases, and dealing with the tenants. After the back to back deaths of her beloved husband and father, Colleen sold her shares of the business to her siblings in 2010 and retired. She decided to live out her husband’s dream of retiring in Vero Beach. Eventually, she again became involved in buying, managing and selling properties and obtained her Florida license in 2018. This 180-degree view of all aspects of real estate, from building and developing, to reading and managing rental agreements and contracts, to property management, means that she is able to aptly assist her customers as they transition throughout the real estate process. While licensed to sell real estate in Florida, she still maintains her broker’s license in Kentucky.
Colleen makes her customers’ properties a priority, using the many exclusive marketing and advertising tools provided by Dale Sorensen Real Estate to market their properties locally and globally. Using market research and local real estate trends, Colleen helps her customers to price their properties for sale in order to achieve the fastest sale at the highest price point.
Colleen loves living in Vero Beach where every day is paradise. “I love the charming, small town feel of Vero Beach, yet it has all the amenities you would find in a much a larger community,” Colleen said. “We enjoy first rate museums, art galleries, restaurants, shopping and more. Outdoor sports are varied here with boating, fishing, surfing, kayaking, and paddle boarding at the top of the list. I love being able to help others learn about our wonderful community and find their dream home here, just like I did.”
She is a member of Impact 100, and is a former board member of the Children’s Home Society. Her passion though is an idea she has to buy or build a home for the area’s homeless women. “I know that the American dream is to own a home, but to these homeless women and children, just being able to sleep safely, in a bed, is a dream to them. I have goal to make this a reality for them, not just a dream.”
In her free time, Colleen enjoys cooking, boating and visiting her daughters and grandchildren. Contact Colleen on her cell phone at 502.551.2548; via email at firstname.lastname@example.org; or visit her at her office located at 1961 14th Avenue, in Historic Downtown Vero Beach, FL.
