Desha Hislop spent her formative years in the Caribbean, on the idyllic islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Growing up in a multicultural society, her appreciation, and love of different cultures, art and lifestyles has always been apparent.

Desha spent the next 14 years moving throughout England, spanning the regions of Newcastle to Southampton, Essex to London – while her husband pursued a successful career as a professional athlete.

Desha’s success stems from this true appreciation, and an unrivalled understanding of the challenges her clients face during relocation.

In 2009, after a brief period in Texas, Desha, her husband, and their 5 beautiful children finally settled and embraced life in New England.

Desha appreciates the roles that active involvement and a strong sense of community brings, both key factors that have helped her family along the way. Raising 5 children may have been the greatest contributor to her calm demeanor, a valuable asset when negotiating, and essential to ensuring that her clients have a positive experience throughout their transactions.

Her work ethic and dedication to the success of her clients are key to the exceptional service she provides.
