I grew up in Bethlehem, PA and at age 11 I began spending my summers in Maine at the the oldest continuously-run camp for girls in America. The life skills and lessons learned in those 10 camp seasons shaped who I am today. I developed a strong sense of independence, learned to accept responsibility, and was constantly challenged to try new things in a supportive atmosphere, experiencing the sense of achievement and success from doing so. I enjoyed the simplicity of nature and the outdoors while living in rustic cabins and was free to develop deep friendships with people from varying backgrounds, many of which remain with me today.
The character-building camp experience was an integral part of my life and hardly a day goes by when I don't think of or utilize the lessons of independence and self-confidence, tolerance, problem-solving, and negotiation-with-others strategies I learned "on the shores".
Whether you're a buyer or a seller, I promise you will not be disappointed in my service and that we will have fun along the way. I have specialized in first-time buyers and first-time sellers for more than 17 years and I truly enjoy guiding my clients through the hurdles of each sale. I enjoy a healthy lifestyle including a daily walk and workout. Why is that important to you? I believe that in order for me to take the best care I can of my clients (not to mention my two young sons), I must first take care of myself. Sounds corny, but my workouts keep me energized, and stress-free... and who wouldn't want THAT in their Realtor?
