Sondra Lanier Deaconescu

     Sondra is a lifelong resident of North Florida, and she has made Lake City her home since 2007. Sondra earned her bachelors degree from the University of South Florida and her masters degree from Troy State University. After 30 years in administrative positions with government and non-profit organizations, Sondra decided to pursue the real estate career she had always desired. Her education, experience, knowledge of North Florida, and personal attributes are great assets for her customers.

     Sondra takes a personalized approach to marketing each of her listings, and she listens closely to buyers’ needs and searches tirelessly for the perfect properties for them. She loves to take on a challenge, but she is committed to not taking on more listings than she can actively manage. Sondra’s enthusiasm, tenacity, respect, professionalism, and commitment to ethical business practices equip her to provide top notch services to buyers and sellers alike.

     Sondra loves her real estate career and the people she meets along the way, but her very favorite times are spent with her husband Ovidiu (Ovi), and her children Glen, Grace, and Connor. Ovidiu owns Kays Tour and Cruise in Lake City, and he and Sondra like to travel when they can. As much as they love traveling, they always look forward to returning home to Lake City. 

     One of Sondra and Ovidiu’s favorite charities is Samaritan’s Purse’s Operation Christmas Child. They enjoy packing shoeboxes with gifts for children around the world. Their home turns into Santa’s workshop with stacks of shoeboxes lining the walls, and it is a highlight of their holiday season.



"Working with Sondra Deaconescu was an absolute delight! From the day of our first meeting she was warm, welcoming, and approached every aspect of the home buying process with enthusiasm and grace. I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to work with her. I appreciate her knowledge, integrity, and willingness to walk with me every step of the way!
Keep up the great work, Stan Batten Team! You all are making a difference in the world."
