BIO – I became passionate about real estate during my 1st home search, while I was a professor of film/media studies. When I became an agent in 1999, I discovered that teaching is a natural platform for working with real estate clients. I also bring research skills to the home valuation process, which is a competitive advantage.
You can benefit from my extensive experience: in addition to helping 100s of clients, I’ve bought, improved, and sold my own homes several times. I’ve owned and managed rental properties. I’ve also renovated a multi-family and converted it into condos, creating brand-new homes for first-time buyers.
Born in Cambridge, I grew up in Back Bay, Beacon Hill, and Albuquerque. I’ve also lived in Cambridge, Somerville, Watertown, and Austin TX. I’ve spent a lot of time on the coast of Maine, in San Francisco, and with family in Virginia and Florida. On my former academic path, I taught at Wellesley College, Emerson College, Babson College, UT Austin, and gave lectures at Harvard, MIT, and Lesley.
EXPERIENCE – To date, I’ve been involved in sales totaling over $80 million. I could handle more sales with a team, but I personally prefer to manage the purchase or sale process from start to finish for my clients. My business has expanded as satisfied home buyers and home sellers have referred family, friends, and co-workers to me for their real estate needs.
BROKER LICENSE – Associate Broker, Sales & Rentals
My #1 priority is working with people as an agent, not managing other agents (Owner Broker). I’m trained as a List Agent to work with home sellers, a Buyer Agent to work with home buyers, and a Rental Agent to work with owners and tenants.
