I was born and raised in West Sussex (south of London) England until 1975 when I immigrated to the USA. Since that time I have lived in Texas, Colorado, Nova Scotia, New Mexico, and Nova Scotia (again!), and am a proud grandparent of two little ones who live in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
I am an avid golfer since age 11, student of meditation for over 30 years, and love to work with my hands as a landscape gardener, carpenter, and all around handyman.
As a professional Estate Agent and Realtor® for over twenty five years I have worked for several large international real estate companies (Prudential Real Estate, Sotheby’s International Realty, Sutton Group, & Canada Trust) and smaller boutique style companies (People Realty, French & French, Running Horse Properties & Red Door Realty) in both the United States & Canada.
I have managed large portfolio sales programs for banks (Colonial Savings & CIBC) and other large public institutions (CMHC), as well as many, many, individual purchase and sale transactions in both countries. I bring a wealth of experience to any individual residential real estate transaction, or large scale marketing program.
I am happy to announce my new association with the first Keller Williams Realty office in Nova Scotia. KW has managed to combine the many powerful networking benefits of a large international real estate company (70,000+ agents in US & Canada), with the recognition and encouragement of the individual agent (or agent team) as a unique brand within their system. Keller Williams encourages its agents, who directly share in the success of the company through profit sharing, to build businesses and sub branding under the Keller Williams brand. So I have finally “come home” to the best of both worlds, a big box company with a boutique flavor.
My philosophy is to place the needs and concerns of my clients first and foremost. All else has followed from that.
[I currently hold an active Real Estate Broker’s license in New Mexico, USA, and a Sales Associate license in Nova Scotia, Canada & an ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative) designation.
Memberships: the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the Real Estate Association of New Mexico (RANM), and the Santa Fe Association of Realtors (SFAR) in the USA, and the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) and the Nova Scotia Real Estate Association (NSREA) in Canada.]
