My specialty is listing distinctive Seacoast properties, particularly luxury estates and waterfront homes. I genuinely enjoy the creativity involved in developing a marketing strategy that makes the unique personality of each property stand out. And I thrive on the challenge of finding the perfect buyer. One of my greatest strengths is working through issues that often arise during complex transactions. It's all about getting things done through collaboration and partnership. I have cultivated a solid client base, with a reputation for excellence in serving empty nesters and high net worth individuals. My approach to real estate brokerage is rooted in honesty, integrity and dedication.
EXPERIENCE & EDUCATION:
I have a Bachelor's degree in Finance and Marketing (University of Miami) and an entrepreneurial background, with 25 years of successfully operating a privately-held, family company in the transportation and travel services industries. At C&J Companies, my responsibilities included day-to-day operations, equipment financing, sales management, real estate investment and strategic development. Owning and operating multiple businesses provided a solid foundation and seamless transition into a residential brokerage career. I am well versed in all aspects of the real estate business from commercial and residential development to leasing and long-term investment. Since joining Tate & Foss Sotheby's International Realty, I have been a top producer and achieved the firm's highest annual sales volume on multiple occasions. In 2013, I welcomed the opportunity to purchase the highly regarded company from founder Ned Tate, become Principal Broker and reposition the firm for continued success into the future. It has been an exciting journey.
COMMUNITY & PERSONALITY:
I grew up in a large family of entrepreneurs in Dover NH and am a lifelong resident of the Seacoast area. Karin and I have lived in Rye Beach for 20 years, which we chose for its small town feel, beaches and golfing. It's also a great place to enjoy cycling, swimming and walking, and offers exceptional quality of life. I proudly support many local organizations and charities, including Rye Public Library, NHSPCA, Portsmouth Pro Musica, Rye Little League, Cross Roads House and the NH Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. I'm a member of the 100 Club, Red House, Abenaqui Country Club, Music Hall, Portsmouth Country Club and Seacoast Sports Center.
'From the first day we talked I had a very good feeling about your integrity and how the sale would be structured to bring the greatest return. It goes without saying that selling a beloved family property is complicated business. At every point you were wonderfully helpful and understanding. My one abiding memory is of the time I was alone, cleaning out the house, and had a large aluminum canoe we had offered to give to my cousins. I literally had no one to help me with this task and decided to see if you might be able to lend a hand. Just 10 minutes later, you and I were walking down the street together, canoe in tow, headed to my cousins' cottage. I unreservedly recommend your services to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. Many thanks and continued success. Clearly you earn it every day.'
