Track Record

I sell property primarily in the Lake Winnipesaukee shored towns; most of my clients' preferred towns are Meredith, Wolfeboro, and Moultonborough. Our firm has been number one in Moultonborough waterfront property sales for over 20 years(Since Moultonborough has twice the amount of Lake Winnipesaukee waterfront of any other Lake Winnipesaukee shore town, you'll want to look at the diverse Moultonborough Lake Winnipesaukee real estate inventory on my site if you are considering buying Lake Winnipesaukee real estate).  I have been a consistent top producer due to a large amount of referral business from previous clients.  

I know these markets well and am immersed in the business of finding homes that are a great fit for my customers and clients.  Click here to read more about our firm and Lakes Region real estate market trends. Our waterfront office in Meredith, NH is right across from the Meredith NH town docks on Lake Winnipesaukee. Our Moultonborough office is at 60 Whittier Highway, Moultonborough, NH.

Selling a NH Lakes Region Home?

I have many years of experience tailoring customized marketing plans for my clients. Put my years of marketing experience to work for you. I'd be happy to provide several examples of my past marketing campaigns.

My past professional experience has given me Marketing and Communications skills that can also be of help to you. My experience includes being an Analyst at a New York City Bank, doing account and copy work at a New York City Advertising Agency, as well as helping to sell the work of Television Commercial Directors to Advertising Agencies.

My Communications experience includes being a Writer for the Internationally broadcast educational television series "Survival English" which teaches English and is produced by Fuji television and shot in New York. I've also worked on various films in the capacity of Writer, Researcher, and Actor, working on projects whose causes I thought needed a voice, including the documentary film "Apartheid a Proposal for Torture" for Channel Four London.

A Real Estate Negotiator

My Real Estate experience began in 1988 as a Real Estate Negotiator in New York City for the Shopco Group, and then for the Hahn Company in La Jolla, California. I returned in the late 1990’s to the Lakes Region to raise my family in the same beautiful area where I was raised. Since then I’ve been raising my son who has been on the water since we arrived, whether it is swimming and fishing for much of the summer or playing hockey from September to Spring.

I've been privileged to help many new Lake Region residents find wonderful properties that have made a positive transition in their lives.

I'm a graduate of The Holderness School in Plymouth, New Hampshire and have a B.A. in English Literature from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, and graduate degrees in two subjects. My Grandfather originally bought Lake Winnipesaukee property after falling in love with Lake Winnipesaukee as a young man. He worked and traveled all over the world, but Lake Winnipesaukee was his favorite place to be.

Years later, my father, who'd discovered Lake Winnipesaukee as a Lakefront Counselor at Camp Idlewild, eventually left his work in Weston, Massachusetts to raise his family in his favorite place in the world, New Hampshire's Lakes Region.

Lake Winnipesaukee and Squam Lake have kept many wonderful friends and my extended family together for generations. I’ve found homes for buyers in almost all Lakes Region towns, from Holderness to Hebron. I’d love to help you in your real estate search.
