I came to this area in 1988 from upstate New York to take graduate classes at UMass, fell in love with western Massachusetts, and never left! The sunny days, friendly people, and the rich resources for education and entertainment make this area a great place to live and raise a family.
I have moved many times and understand first hand that moving can be very stressful. We all know that nothing in life is simple, even when we think it should be, and that includes buying and/or selling a home. Real estate transactions have become increasingly complicated and the role of the real estate practitioner is evolving into one that is best served by acting as a consultant, educator, and a GPS for the real estate transaction once the seller/buyer has plugged in a destination. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or a seasoned home owner looking to make some changes, I would be happy to meet with you for a consultation. I’m here to help!

She is an honest realtor with a keen eye [...]
