Coming from a twenty year career as a marketing manager for several international companies, I bring with me skills in writing, advertising, product promotion, design and customer service - all skills that I use daily for the benefit of my real estate clients. Over the past twelve years my husband and I have lived in the communities of South Bristol, East Boothbay and Portland. We love boating, gardening and volunteering for many local organizations that serve the mid-coast area. We are fans of the Sea Dogs, the Portland Symphony, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, and life in Maine in general. My philosophy of real estate (and life, for that matter) is to make it fun and satisfying. For most of us, a real estate purchase or sale is a significant and infrequent event where the stakes are high, both emotionally and financially. As a Realtor (R), I make it my job to take the stress out of the process by giving clients a clear view of the market, offering sound advice that is grounded in experience, and communicating well and often.
