Welcome to Maine, also known as Vacationland. It’s a special place to call home! Whether it be your primary or secondary residence, Maine is unique in that it is urban and rural, natural and beautiful, offers excellent restaurants and breweries, and sandy beaches to serene lakes. Maine offers a lifestyle that I have not experienced anywhere else and I’m proud to call it my home.
My family has lived all over the country from my hometown of Santa Barbara, CA to now on Little Sebago Lake, just thirty minutes to downtown Portland. After raising two wonderful kids in the greater Portland suburbs for ten years, it was time to move year-round to our lake home. We enjoy the outdoors, time on the water, and winter sports. Living in the greater Portland area offers us an excellent food scene with top restaurants, a quaint feel with local coffee shops, galleries, shopping, and an impressive arts district. The convenience of being close to Portland and able to enjoy the beauty of lake life and quality family time is quite special.
For buyers, I know that many factors go into choosing the right community and I want to make sure you settle in the perfect place to call home. Whether it be a year-round or a second home, I want you to be over the moon with your decision. If you are from out of the area, I will preview properties for you, connect virtually, or take video clips for you. Let’s make this easy for you! My family has relocated several times, so I understand the strain and stress some experience when moving to a new area. I know how important it is to help you explore and feel positive about your purchase. I’ll connect you with the resources you need including schools, doctors, contractors, etc. to help ease your transition. Thoroughly getting to know you is important as it ensures my ability to serve you well and after all, we are a team. At the end of the day I find myself becoming longtime friends with many of my clients.
For my sellers, I provide exceptional marketing including the highest level of professional photography, video, and Matterport 3D virtual tour technology. I’ve been using virtual technology since 2016 and it has proven to be an effective tool for my clients. In addition, I use a gimble for short video clips to post on social media and offer virtual showings to any potential buyer throughout the world. Utilizing the global reach of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand, I am tightly networked with real estate professionals in the US and worldwide. With the ability to share my listings on private platforms with these additional brokers provides them the ability to share your property with their sphere and cast out a net far and wide in search of your buyer.
After practicing finance in the government and corporate sectors, I lacked the personal connection, so I began selling real estate. At that time, I made a pact with myself that I would provide the finest level of service to every client I was fortunate enough to serve. Many years later, I am still treating each and every one of my clients as if they were my only client. It's what I do best. Always going above and beyond, it's about integrity, commitment, hard work, energy, experience, and results. I am friendly, caring, and aggressive, and just love what I'm doing. I delight in hearing my clients say 'wow'!
I hold a vast knowledge in construction and have represented several developers over the years from residential subdivisions to condominium projects. I have also personally acted as general contractor for remodels and understand most things related to construction.
In 2019, I was ranked in the TOP 1% of all residential real estate professionals in the state of Maine. I am experienced, a successful negotiator, and serve my clients well. Allow me to connect with you today to see how we can work together. It’s never too early to start the process and I’ve worked with folks for a few years before they made their move and enjoyed getting to know them!
