J. Brittany DeVarso



Originally a native of Massachusetts, J. Brittany DeVarso received a B.A. of English and a Music Minor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, graduating cum laude. She then went on to graduate school where she earned a Master of Theological Studies at Vanderbilt University Divinity School. After serving in the ministry for five years, Brittany moved to New York and worked as a legal assistant while contemplating law school. Brittany decided not to pursue a law career and relocated to Los Angeles in 2000. After working at several real estate companies, Brittany chose to get her real estate license because she enjoys working with people and helping them find a place to call home. She started her real estate career at a boutique agency in Venice Beach called Bulldog Realtors. After a few years, Brittany transferred her license to Keller Williams Realty in Beverly Hills.

Brittany relocated back to New York in 2012 and continued to work with Keller Williams Realty selling homes and leasing apartments. She also worked at North Shore Towers and Premier Properties at Meadowbrook Pointe selling luxury co-ops and condominiums. Brittany received a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation in 2018 which qualifies her to work with the senior population.

In 2020, Brittany got her broker’s license and decided that it was time for her to start her own real estate company. Her interest in interior design also prompted her to earn a certificate in interior design. Combining her love of real estate and passion for interior design, Brittany launched her company, “Mermaid Realty & Design” in 2020. A boutique agency located on Ocean Avenue in East Rockaway, NY which borders Oceanside, Rockville Centre, Lynbrook and Hewlett, Mermaid Realty & Design services the beach communities of the South Shore to the North Shore of Long Island and out East to Westhampton.
