What inspired you to pursue a career in real estate?
Prior to Real Estate, I was a social worker and during that time I quickly realized the importance of how a home impacts one's life. Being happy with where you live, directly impacts one's overall mental health. Changing where you live usually occurs at different phases of your life and is something I wanted to be a part of.
Tell us a real estate "success" story that you are especially proud of.
This is an easy question. My team. I've built a solid team of agents that care about the client and not the sale. They value relationships like I always have and treat their clients like family. Knowing that each of them is out there operating as I have since I started, allows more people to have a satisfying real estate experience which is not always the case.
Can you share a memorable experience or success story from your time at our brokerage?
I've been at this office my entire career in Real Estate. I started from the bottom without a strong network in Boston. Over the past few years, myself and the team have continued to hold the Top spot which is exciting but also shows you the support received from Nick has enabled us to be so successful.
When you're not working, what are some of your favorite hobbies or activities?
I enjoy taking the dog for hikes, hitting the gym, learning to golf, and spending time at my house in Vermont.
What's a fun or surprising fact about you that most people don't know?
I worked in Social work prior to real estate and everyone that finds out is surprised and sees it as a drastic change. Little do they know, the best real estate agents are natural social workers.
