Real estate is all about connecting people and cultivating relationships to achieve great results. I thrive on finding solutions to rise above any challenge encountered along the way, for my clients and my sales team. The key is asking the right questions, listening carefully and understanding what is important in order to guide people to make prudent decisions. And I'm passionate about marketing. That's why I strive to learn as much as possible about you and your lifestyle, needs and goals. I genuinely enjoy the creative process of crafting a plan to connect with the ideal buyer for your home. I also have an 'Energy Smart' designation and appreciate the importance of efficient design in today's residential market. I've had the valuable experience of collaborating with an architect, builder and subcontractors for the construction of my own home--translating technical features into lifestyle benefits is one of my specialties!
EXPERIENCE & EDUCATION:
My real estate career was inspired by my mother, who has owned an independent real estate company for decades. My husband Shawn and I purchased a Tate & Foss listing in 2003, which gave me first-hand experience as a customer of the firm. When the time came to launch my career in 2005, Tate & Foss was the only choice. I have been a consistent multi-million dollar producer and became Sales Manager in 2014, now leading a team of highly experienced sales associates. I have 20 years of experience in marketing, advertising, client services and project management for companies including Putnam Investments, Tidewatch Market Research and MicroArts Creative Agency. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology (University of New Hampshire) and a Master's degree in Business Administration (Northeastern University).
COMMUNITY & PERSONALITY:
I'm committed to improving Quality of Life throughout the Seacoast. That's why I've supported many local organizations, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Seacoast, Coastal Conservation Association, Cross Roads House, NHSPCA, Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce, Rye Senior Serve, Seacoast Repertory Theater, The Music Hall and NH Public Radio. I live in Rye NH and am a lifelong resident of Southern NH. Shawn, Jack (our black Lab) and I enjoy walking along the sandy beaches and wooded trails of our beautiful town. We're members of the Wentworth Marina and avid UNH ice hockey fans. When I'm not meeting with clients or working on their behalf, my favorite pursuits include tennis, skiing, kayaking, hiking, international travel, creative marketing projects and spending quality time with family and friends.
'A well-respected neighbor recommended you very highly and, after interviewing several agents, I hired you to sell my home. I was amazed when, in a slow market, you had qualified buyers lined up and, within a short time, it was under solid agreement. You handled every aspect of the process with the utmost professionalism. From your marketing expertise, respect in the way you scheduled and showed the house, to the details and legal aspects of the agreement and closing. You made a potentially disruptive event into a smooth transition for my family and me. You represented my best interests with absolute integrity.'
