With a high level of personalized service, the latest technology, local expertise, and a deep understanding of the Maine lifestyle, I help individuals and families market and sell their homes and investment properties.
By surveying the landscape and identifying potential properties - both on and off the market - I assist buyers relocating to and within Maine.
I get tremendous personal pleasure from helping people sell and find their dream properties - setting them on the course of fulfilling their aspirations for themselves, their families, neighborhoods and communities.
I have logged many years working in, exploring and enjoying many of the communities that comprise Maine's 16 counties. I have developed particular knowledge of the following areas: Greater Portland, including Brunswick and Bath; Knox, Waldo & coastal Washington counties.
The following experiences shape my interests and orientation: having spent a large portion of my childhood in India, Africa and England; sustainable farming, local food production, and farmland preservation; community journalism, and the inspiration and leadership I've witnessed in community revitalization. Maine is special not only because of its amazing natural beauty, but because of its intact communities where the web of connection is valued and integral to daily living.
Before entering real estate in 2016, my previous career involved working with foundations and nonprofits locally, nationally and internationally, including the Maine Community Foundation, Outward Bound, Aspen Institute's Community Strategies and Nonprofit & Philanthropy Groups, and the UN Special Court for Sierra Leone. I was recognized for my strategic abilities, follow-through and implementation.
I grasp complex issues quickly, effectively assess and connect players and issues in a landscape, anticipate trends, develop rapport and trusted relationships, and work effectively in partnership.I have thrived working collaboratively, and with a very broad network of diverse people. This holds me in good stead in real estate where sellers and buyers, the financial sector, municipalities, and building trades intersect.
I am a graduate of Colby College, Maine (BA), and American University, DC (MS).
My family enjoys exploring Maine beaches, towns, and islands; utilizing the many trails protected by area land trusts; camping at Maine’s remarkable state parks; and trying all the delicious food we can.We are grateful we get to live in such an amazing state with such resourceful, creative and wonderful people.
