Raised in a “Real Estate” Family in New England and later in South Florida, Detra Croke graduated from The University of Miami’s Honor College Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. Because of her passion for finance, she then pursued and received a Master’s degree in Business Administration here in her hometown of Boca Raton. At the beginning of her career, she joined a local Luxury Real Estate Brokerage and worked to market and sell Boca Raton’s luxury estate home development, Le Rivage. Following that success, she went to work for F.P. Dino & Associates and was appointed treasurer of the company. Here, she managed construction lending for new residential home developments. She also worked closely with fellow directors on home design layout, as well as with home buyers to provide assistance with the interior design and finishes of their new homes. Detra’s attention to design detail and function is paramount. In 2017, she joined BEX Realty where she worked with both the residential and commercial clients, procuring land to develop for institutional clients such as L.O.T Early Learning Academy, Academic Charter Schools, Newbridge Preparatory Academy, Emerging Minds Montessori School, and International Montessori Kids Program.
Today, as a Compass agent, Detra has access to exclusive programs and technology to simplify the real estate buying and selling process for her clients.
Detra currently resides in East Delray Beach with her husband and children. She enjoys theater and supports the local and iconic Boca Ballet Theatre, where she was a member and performer. She enjoys seeing the next generation of young dancers take the stage as they continue the tradition of inspiring others and bringing culture and art to our beautiful community.
A Florida resident since 1991, Detra has witnessed the growth of the communities of South Florida and the diversity that this highly sought-after Real Estate market has to offer. From homes on sprawling greens of the golf courses to those with majestic waterfront views, she is eager and committed to sharing with her clients the beauty and the unique environment that embodies South Florida.
