I have always been a New Englander; growing up in Fairfield County, Connecticut; spending the summers of my youth in New Hampshire on Lake Winnipesaukee and Lake Ossipee; my first post-college job on Squam Lake as a teacher/naturalist; living now with my wife in Falmouth, Maine. I traveled a bit along the way; graduated college in Pennsylvania with a B.S. in Environmental Science and Resource Management from Lehigh University; manager of western operations for an international hydrogeological consulting firm, a job that took me to 39 states over nine years. Even after living for a while in the beautiful Rocky Mountains my heart was still in New England; and I eventually settled on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee where I founded, owned, and operated three resort gift and apparel shops for twenty years. I served on the board of corporators for my local bank as well as on the boards of the water and sewer commissions, planning board, merchants association, and chamber of commerce.
Customer service, attention to detail, and community service were major reasons for my success in retail; the very same practices that allowed a natural transition into real estate sales and investment. I obtained both my Maine and New Hampshire real estate licenses in 2004, but now limit my practice to Maine. My wife and I along with our Welsh Corgi enjoy our vacation homes on Bear Island on Lake Winnipesaukee, Sugarloaf, and down east in a working harbor in Frenchman Bay that time forgot. When we are not tending our bees we boat on the lake, sail with friends on the bay, attempt to hold our own at 6-wicket croquet, and are parents, grandparents, and in-laws to a blended family living 16 times zones apart.
I work closely with my clients, listening always, appreciating lifestyles and time frames and then artfully structuring a plan to market a property for a seller or identify the perfect home for a buyer. Primary homes, vacation homes, oceanfront, lakefront, mountaintop; I go wherever extraordinary properties and extraordinary lives come together.
