From quaint seaside cottages to multi-million dollar estates, I always strive to guide my clients through the process of buying and selling real estate with grace, discretion, care and respect. Over the past 30 years, I have honed my knowledge of Seacoast towns, schools, mortgage lenders and craftsmen by working and living in the same community. I know the homes and communities of our market area and am skilled at conveying this expertise to my buyer and seller clients. I've had the pleasure of assisting many clients over the years and been fortunate to receive referrals to assist their family members, friends, business associates or the rest of their neighborhood. My colleagues respect my deep understanding of the market and often ask for my opinion and guidance.
EXPERIENCE & EDUCATION:
For many years, I was dedicated to creating a wonderful home for my young family. As my children grew, the idea of assisting others in discovering the tranquility and small-town feel of the Seacoast area became intriguing. I could see that the area was growing and wanted to be an integral part of helping others find a home and town in which they too could settle and enjoy all that our special community has to offer. I launched my real estate career in 1985 as a sales agent with The Joycelyn Caulfield Agency and quickly found my niche in the local market. I joined Tate & Foss in 1994, feeling that the firm's presence within my home town and the quality of the sales staff and management team would be a perfect fit. I've been a consistent sales leader for many years.
COMMUNITY & PERSONALITY:
I have lived in Rye since 1975 and continue to enjoy the Seacoast area's outstanding quality of life. When not with clients, you'll find me on one of our beautiful beaches with one or more of our seven grandchildren, at one of our farmers markets, enjoying concerts and plays al fresco or at our local schools on the sidelines of many youth sporting events. And of course sampling the fabulous restaurants at our fingertips. Our five children have lived and traveled abroad and all have come back to the NH Seacoast to stay. We are so very fortunate to have an expansive array of options for education in the Seacoast, with many private and public schools. My family and I support the Rye schools, Heronfield Academy, St Thomas Aquinas, Portsmouth High School and Phillips Exeter Academy. Our children have and or our grandchildren currently attend all of these schools. It would be my distinct pleasure to meet you and introduce you to all the Seacoast has to offer.
'From the first sale of our Royal Barry Wills Cape in Stratham, to the most recent purchase of a New England Craftsman Bungalow in Greenland, I knew that you excelled at your job in not only walking your clients through the process of buying and selling a home, but I experienced firsthand your amazing, intuitive sense of matching families to the perfect house. You know the geographic area, towns and neighborhoods. Anytime I had a question you had the answer, whether it was about potential renovations, market value or mortgage lenders. You have easily navigated me through multiple transactions with gentle reminders, keeping me on task and successfully closing the deal. You have a calm presence and when situations get stressful, you remain composed. Your professionalism is the benchmark from which I have gauged all others.'
