I have been a resident of Maine for over 30 years, after spending my youth in New York and Southern New England. I raised my family in Down East Maine and currently reside in the Mid Coast region. With a long family history in boat building and sailing, staying close to the water is most important to me and I feed this passion as a member and volunteer of the Maine Maritime Museum and as a supporter of Sail Maine. I have completed my second annual lecture series in March of 2013 in order to continue fund raising for the Sail Maine program. Additionally, I am an active participant in my local community, enjoying all that Bath, named Maine's "cool little city" has to offer. The Bath Freight Shed Alliance, Fields for our Future and Maine's First Ship are not only worthy groups to support they bring enjoyment to all who become involved with the dynamic people who form them. It is a great pleasure to have the opportunity to be a part of all three. My love of travel and my enthusiasm for sailing have led me to form a partnership with a Sotheby's International Realty colleague in Miami. Between us we have a strong connection to the world of yachting and this collaboration has brought us to a variety of events where we promote luxury waterfront and marine related properties from Maine to Miami. Whether it is at boat shows, mega yacht charter shows, sailing regattas or at Art Basel, we are there to present all that Sotheby's International Realty has to offer in distinctive homes. In conjunction with this I am also a member of FIABCI, the international federation of real estate brokers which allows me to take advantage of my traveling to connect with brokers all over the world. It was my love of Maine and of rehabilitating homes which led me into real estate. I am currently renovating yet another home and enjoy the hunt for these abandoned treasures which just need a little TLC to bring them back to life. Prior to real estate I worked in the health care field including working for Harvard in the Commonwealth Research Evaluation Unit at DMH, and at state prisons and inpatient psychiatric units. I believe the skills gained from that experience; empathy, active listening, and attention to detail are a true asset and translate well into the real estate business. I am dedicated to bringing the highest quality of service and warmth to all client relationships so that the transition of buying and/or selling a property is an enjoyable and rewarding experience. I look forward to working with you!
