Raised in New
Hampshire, with a degree in Business Science. I have worked in
the fields of education, law enforcement and professional legal
field before starting my own businesses. I enjoyed operating
several businesses such as business support services, and later
my favorite ... a newspaper business before falling in love with
the Adirondack'er. With my sense of adventure, I just simply
couldn't say 'no' the Adirondacks when I was afforded the
opportunity to join. I found the folks so helpful and warm
that I wanted to return the welcome by helping others join the
Adirondacks. "What better way than helping folks with their
real estate needs?" is the reason I started a real estate
agency. So, I got a little carried away with helping; we are
now seven offices, and over 7,000 sub agents. Our goal is to
help the entire Adirondack Park, so we're always looking for
good folks to help me help others!
Areas of Expertise
inherit my mother's artistic abilities, I blended this talent
into the business world.
My expertise was
built in many stepping blocks. First armed with the degree in
Business, I exploring my skill in the Fortune 500 company world,
but found this unfulfilling. Then I tried worked in the
education sector as Adm. Assistant whereby we built the new
vocation building and programs from planning to building
completion. It was rewarding to take on an entire five year
project from start to finish. Then, I started my family, and I
relocated my job area where I ventured in the field of law at
the state police department as Adm. Assistant and Dispatcher.
As my family demanded more, I started the world of
entrepreneurship and never looked back into the 9-5 routine. I
ran and operated a business support service for many years
assisting folks from K-Mart to small contractor's needing a
brochure. Desktop Publishing, resume designing, large databases
maintenance, to legal assistance, was the normal day. Variety
kept the artistic ideas growing, and my clients grew their
businesses as well successfully.
found a need for a local community newspaper as the old one been
abandoned. I picked this up with a help of a great team, and we
brought back the newspaper, but it grew to beyond a community,
into 12 communities and being a monthly struggle to keep the
shelves stocked. We organized it as a newsmagazine with local
professional writers, state & town news, historical stories,
health and food features and many other great information from
our community; much like the sponsored site of "In
And Around The Adirondack Park."
I believe my
varied background prepared me well for the career of real
estate. There is nothing more rewarding that seeing others
achieve their goals and sometimes their helpers (like us
Realtors) need to be creative and understanding. I can see a
project from the beginning to the end, and make it grow outside
Why I Love the Adirondacks
feel the seasons are how I measure my life timeline. The cold
Alaskan tundra to the shores of Key West can't compare to the
beauty of the mountains, lakes and four seasons here in the
Adirondacks. The Park has many favors to enjoy and I'm still
sampling each and every one. With 6 million acres to explore,
I'm going to be busy for many more years; so I figured I'd call
this home. Adirondack folks, which I hope to be considered
among them, are helpful, giving and cheery.
Best Advice to Clients
customers should be comfortable with their real estate
representative. Don't be a sheep, and make your agent work with
you to achieve your goals. A good agent will listen and a good
customer will be honest. Choose an agent who you sense is
knowledgeable in the areas you are seeking and works well with
you. Our agents have been trained in the environment of the
Adirondack Park agency laws, trained by New York Board of
Realtors on ethical service to our public. No longer are the
days of 10 meg computers and the old stereo type of real estate
salesmen. The business of real estate has changed to one of
service to our property owners, of which we are the cause of
their sale, and buyers now are afforded their own representation
in their purchase. The law has taken a good position of
protecting the public in real estate practices, and rightly so.
So find an agent that is right for you, good service, good
ethics, honest answers and one that listens.
