I often say “You can’t take the emotion out of shelter”. 

A lifelong resident of the Greater Boston area, I know Eastern Massachusetts like my own backyard, and I love it here in New England. I purchased my first home in Bedford over 25 years ago, and I’ve bought and sold a few since. As a respected and in-demand Realtor®, I’m known for my passion, experience, and expert negotiation. Whether I’m mobilizing my network of professional resources on your behalf, or simply suggesting a great restaurant, a new veterinarian, or maybe a preschool, I want to be your go-to for insight and advice. 

My blended family consists of four “twenty-something” kids, two pups, and a husband. I specialize in Bedford and the surrounding Middlesex County communities as well as Boston’s North Shore. Fond of both beaches and forests, theater, dancing, and good food, I’ll try just about anything once…but will always decline camping and brussel sprouts. 

A consistent top performer, I’m proud to be affiliated with Barrett Sotheby’s International Realty. I hold a marketing degree from Bentley University and am both a former Director of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board, and a past president of the Women’s Council of Realtors. In addition, I’m a Certified Residential Specialist, an elite designation earned by only a select 4% of Realtors nationally. 

It’s a privilege to share my client’s big life events. Over the years many clients have become friends, and I love learning about them and hearing their stories. I approach each transaction with enthusiasm and curiosity. In addition to being fiercely loyal, I’m a committed problem solver and always looking for ways to better my client’s experience. 

No matter where you are in your life’s journey, I would be honored to assist with your next move.
