I moved to New England in 1975 and settled in Brattleboro, Vermont in 1978. While building a house and participating "hands on" in the construction process, I decided to become a Realtor and help others find that dream home or parcel of land on which to build.
I joined Berkley & Veller Greenwood Country Realtors in January 1987 and am licensed in both Vermont & New Hampshire. I served 4 years on the Vermont Real Estate Commission and participated in writing the rules of Agency Disclosure & Buyer Representation. These rules help to ensure that both buyers & sellers have an upfront understanding of how real estate works in Vermont and who the Realtor they are working with is representing in the transaction. Thorough, honest & trustworthy are my personal traits that I strive to adhere to in all transactions, whether representing the seller or the buyer. Give me a call!
If you'd like to get to know me on a more personal level I've done a variety of things prior to becoming a Realtor. In the 1970's I was a weaving apprentice and continued that as a hobby until about 2014. I have a great appreciation for the fiber arts but after several years of dusting off my looms, but not using them, I decided that they would be better off with someone else. They are now in the hands of some very excited weavers and I enjoy the photos of the projects that they send me on occasion.
I am a graduate of Greenfield Community College in Greenfield, MA and also a graduate of the University of Massachusetts in Amherst with a B.S. in Phys Ed. Specializing in Exercise Science. I started that career working in our local hospital and helping to set up a Cardiac Stress Testing Lab - unfortunately, that career ended with a layoff. That was 1986 and here I am today- a member of the Berkley & Veller Greenwood Country family ever since!
My husband Steve and I like to spend our spare time in our kayaks, on our snowshoes or out cruising around Vermont and other parts of New England in our Miata, enjoying the scenery and discovering new roads that we've never been on, plus traveling some old favorites when we need to stay closer to home. Steve is a wonderful musician (trumpeter) and I try to attend his gigs whenever they are open to the public.
If you're a music fan, like I am, you'll be delighted to know that there are an amazing amount of talented musicians living in and around the Brattleboro area. Many quality performances can be heard at a number of local venues such as the Lounge & the Vermont Jazz Center in Brattleboro, The Yellow Barn Music Festival in Putney, the Marlboro Music Festival in Marlboro, VT, the Iron Horse or Calvin Theatre in Northampton & at UMass in Amherst to name a few. There's no shortage of performing arts to enjoy around here! And there are lots of artists and galleries in town. Visit "Gallery Walk" on the first Friday of the month and dine in one of the many restaurants for a fun night out in Brattleboro. Your're sure to want to make this area your home!
