Prior to becoming licensed to sell real estate in Maine, I was a registered nurse with experience in Emergency Department settings as well as Non Profit management for rare and under-represented diseases; driving disease awareness, educational outreach, organization growth and oversight of an established research grant program. I have always thrived in dynamic and challenging environments, as well as situations where there was stagnation and revitalization and growth was the goal. End of the day, I love a challenge!
I am originally a native of eastern central Pennsylvania, where I met my husband of the last 35 years. Together we have raised 3 children and are now proud grandparents to 4 fabulous grandsons, 2 grand dogs and 4 grand cats. We moved from Pottsville, PA to the Chicago suburbs when our kids were middle and high school aged and made the midwest our home for 3.5 years. After that we had the good fortune to be transferred to Maine’s beautiful seacoast making our home in York Village for the last 17 years. Due to my husband’s work transfers I have gained a lot of personal experience in home sales, purchases, relocation and restoration giving me a vast wealth of information to be drawn upon when representing my buyer and seller clients. I have a particular fondness for vintage and antique homes coupled with hands on experience in their restoration.
I consider myself lucky to be able to represent buyers and seller clients across Southern Maine. My job provides me with unparalleled scenery where ever I go. And while I am not new to the area I often feel like I am still a tourist as I am always discovering new places that leave me awestruck. It is this very scenario that makes so many people want to also own a piece of this amazing area. I can’t count how many times someone has said to me “we have been coming here for years and it is our dream to own a second home, or to retire to York, Ogunquit, or (insert your favorite town here)”. That’s what makes my job so enjoyable…helping people realize those dreams. Working with my clients and a team of experienced lenders, inspectors, builders, title companies and lawyers that dream has become a reality for many. I have been assisting in this very process for almost 11 years. No situation is too challenging. If there is a will on the part of a buyer or seller, I exhaust every option to be sure that I can get them to the desired real estate goal. If it can be done, we will get it done. I love to work with folks all over the buying spectrum from first time home buyers to investors to those in the luxury market. As well as working with all types of sellers, from straightforward, uncomplicated list to sell situations to more complex sales situations where multiple heirs are involved, reverse mortgages are in place, out of state sellers and situations where market value is not inline with the seller’s current investment in the home, to name a few. Problem solving is my strong suit, so let me utilize that skill to help you make owning a home, or selling a home here in Southern Maine a reality. I look forward to being at your service.
