Carla Cottrell moved to New Smyrna beach three years ago from just north of Tampa when her husband, Reverend Peter Cottrell, was asked to become the senior pastor at Coronado Community United Methodist Church. Carla was serving as an assistant principal in Pasco County, and, with the move, came an opportunity to pursue a new and exciting career in real estate!
Born in historic Saint Augustine, Carla is a 6th generation Minorcan Floridian. Upon moving to NSB, she realized her natural affinity for the area and was thrilled to find her ancestors’ names in the New Smyrna Museum of History!
Carla joined Watson to work with a team that is second to none! In her first year as an agent, Carla was nominated fort he Watson Realty Rising Star Award, and she was nominated and won the 2017 New Smyrna Beach Board of REALTORS Rising Star Award! Currently she is earning her GRI designation, and she is so grateful to have opportunities to learn and grow as she serves her customers.
In her free time, she enjoys working with various missions sponsored by the church, playing with her precious grandchildren, reading, walking her dog at Smyrna Dunes, cooking, and camping and traveling with her husband.
