Southern Vermont is a very special place to live. I grew up along the Hudson River in suburban New York; fell in love with Vermont; and moved to Marlboro in 1965. After earning a degree at Marlboro College in design, I planned and constructed my own house atop a cliff overlooking the Green River in Halifax. This project led me to a stint in real estate sales followed by 10 years as a principal in the company that manufactured Window Quilt®.
When our twin sons were born, Sandy and I sold our house in the country and acquired a rundown farmhouse near downtown Brattleboro. Twenty three years later we are still enjoying the seemingly non-stop process of renovating.
Our sons attended local schools and are now pursuing their interests in the arts: Alec at Maine College of Art in Portland and Ian at Sarah Lawrence College outside NYC.
After roles in finance, sales, marketing and as co-founder in the optical components industry, I am happily back as a real estate agent matching buyers' dreams with properties and seeing to it that sellers get the best market exposure - and best price - for their investment.
I currently serve as a Director on the Southern Vermont Board of REALTORS®.
When not working on or around my house, I try to find the time to ski, bike, hike, paddle or just workout at the gym. Occasionally, I even find the time to take my Alfa on an 'explore' over undiscovered area roads.
For me, professionalism and integrity are key. Equally important, success in real estate brokerage - as in any business - requires anticipating and exceeding each client's expectations. My enjoyment comes in putting all the pieces of each transaction together with the best possible outcome for you.
I'd be more than pleased to get together with you to discuss your goals. After I fully understand your requirements, we will develop a plan to acquire or market your property. Then I will do everything I can to turn your dreams into a reality.
Feel free to call, e-mail, or stop by our office to make an appointment.
