Philosophy 
Quite simply, I love people, the NH Seacoast area, and ‘puzzles.’  I see how a home fits with both a buyer and seller as parts of a wonderful puzzle that need to be understood and arranged perfectly so that everyone’s goals may be achieved.  This begins with a deep understanding of property details and the local market, as well as my clients’ wants and needs.  I completely immerse myself in working side by side with them, whether preparing and marketing their home for sale or [...]

Philosophy 
Quite simply, I love people, the NH Seacoast area, and ‘puzzles.’  I see how a home fits with both a buyer and seller as parts of a wonderful puzzle that need to be understood and arranged perfectly so that everyone’s goals may be achieved.  This begins with a deep understanding of property details and the local market, as well as my clients’ wants and needs.  I completely immerse myself in working side by side with them, whether preparing and marketing their home for sale or searching and negotiating to purchase their dream home. One of the greatest challenges in any person’s life is deciding where and how to live. My experience, empathy and communication style can make the difference for a client seeking a new chapter in life that fulfills their dreams.  That is a responsibility and a source of satisfaction that motivates me every day.

Experience & Education
I have lived in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maryland, Illinois, Texas, Virginia and England, and I have bought and sold homes along the way.  In doing so, I gained genuine insight into the needs of buyers and sellers, and the power of human ‘touch’ in delivering customer service that makes everyone involved go “Wow!”  Now on this side of the table, I leverage my experience and passion to make sure that every sale is handled with the utmost care.  I particularly love to stage homes, setting them up for the best outcome and delighting buyers in the process.  I have a solid, diverse resource network to help families navigate the startup of their lives in a new location; from tradesmen and service providers to personal connections and community organizations.  I was excited to join Tate & Foss Sotheby’s International Realty, a firm with deep local roots and global ties, which is simply a perfect fit for me!

Community & Personality 
I attended high school and college in New Hampshire and have always considered it ‘home,’ even when I lived overseas.  I know firsthand the complexities of buying and selling, tearing down and rebuilding, adding on and remodeling, and I love it all!  I enjoy walking, biking and driving around the Seacoast area, taking in the natural beauty of our towns and the ocean. With my husband, I frequently attend community events and may be seen ‘out and about’ with friends on the weekends. I am a member of the Seacoast Board of Realtors, The Music Hall, Fuller Gardens and Abenaqui Country Club where I Co-Chair the Events Committee and sit on the House Committee. I am active in both volunteering and supporting Cross Roads House shelter in Portsmouth. There is so much to do here that you can stay engaged for a lifetime
