Portland, ME 04101
After years in public relations and sales, I took the plunge and began a career in real estate in 2005. Experience has shown me that for many consumers, the transaction process can be daunting and requires a knowledgeable and patient hand. Because I treat my client’s holistically--not just as home buyers or sellers--I am able to guide the process in a way that works for them. I look forward to hearing from you and showing you the Greater Portland I know so well.
I grew up in the Lowcountry of Charleston, S.C. and for a real change of pace, chose to go to college in Ohio. After graduating in 1988, I came to Maine to start a new life. The careers that brought me to REAL ESTATE all have one thing in common--a real curiosity about and dedication to people.
I worked at the PORTLAND MUSEUM OF ART in the public relations department, continued on to the CASCO BAY WEEKLY as an advertising account representative, served as a SALES COACH in the business office at VERIZON, and finally excelled as an account executive for AVEDA CORPORATION.
After my second child was born in 2005, I decided to turn my passion for real estate into my full time job.
I have staked my professional reputation on creating exceptional CLIENT EXPERIENCES and I can do the same for you.
