My smart strategies create successful sales.
Together more than 450 sets of clients and I have celebrated a record breaking sale price, a smartly navigated bidding war, laughed and cried together, run with our dogs or just sat and talked for hours. I enjoy the art and science of architecture but I love people. Investing my time learning what you need from me and the next home allows me to create a custom road map just for you. I manage your needs in a way that will leave you feeling comfortable, valued and confident throughout the process. This isn't work for me, it's just what I do.
In 2017 we earned the #160th position on the Wall Street Journal's real trends list of the most successful 250 agents in the country with only 2 other Massachusetts teams ranking on the list.
It's not about "selling" your home. I have an ongoing 12 + year love affair with the act of creating a story that you are proud to share. When my sons or husband meet a buyer or seller client and hear how I made them feel, the impact I had on their life financially and emotionally I am inspired. This feeling makes me leap out of bed in the morning and do it all over again. I'll be here when you need me.
Creating a stunning, well crafted story with attention grabbing visuals that inspire feelings about your home and shows what makes it so unique is invigorating. Sharing that story with the world and compelling house hunters to stop and take notice, seeing them recognize it's perfect for them, negotiating the most impactful offer for you and managing the transaction to bring you to a flawless outcome is what I adore.
I have the experience you need to make smart choices about your options.

Marketing Matters - Get to know what I do and see for yourself why my homes attract so much attention.
This lovely home needed immediate attention. I created a set of ads that would attract many different types of buyers. The ad shown below worked beautifully as two of the interested buyers found the home through this link.
Lots of agents share their listings on social media - very few are able to reach the masses like we do. Our name recognition reaches across the nation. The attention my listings receive is truly extraordinary. More exposure means more interest. More interest means you have options in your sale.
This Andover home was a unique situation. It had failed to sell with another agent just 2 weeks before I was selected to market the home. The seller and I made the decision to increase the asking price by $100,000 in order to attract a different type of home seeker.
Here's a sample of how we marketed a North Andover House I have just sold - $713,000
I incorporated 3D technology, television quality video commercials and story telling marketing to attract many buyers within just a few hours.
See cutting edge 3D technology that I use to attract relocating and international clients that are unable to view your home in person prior to purchasing. Yes, this happens! With immersive marketing your home has more options than a home being marketed in the same old fashion with still photos alone. With my marketing the buyer can actually "walk" around your home from their screen and interact with the floorpan. Click the"read more button" to see it in action.

Without giving away my technical secrets I can share that the ad shown below worked beautifully as two of the interested buyers found the home through this link. This home was a unique situation.

1 Hoyts Gypsy Lane Newburyport - $762,000 - Previously marketed without selling by another firm.
This relocating family was depending on me to reintroduce the home to the market after a failed attempt at selling. They were recommended to me by a home owner in North Andover who I had helped under similar circumstances. Together we repacked the home in many ways and ultimately reached a very wide audience of people who wanted to purchase the home. Many suggested the home needed to be renovated or a drastic price reduction to attract people. With the marketing portfolio that we created we had no shortage of people who saw the beauty in the home.
