What did you do before real estate and how did you get started in the business?
After graduating from Northeastern University with a Bachelors degree in Biology, I was scooped by a medical corporation to sell Chemistry Analyzers to hospitals across the United States. That is whereI learned my salesmanship skills, and also where I learned that I wanted to settle down after ten years of intense traveling. Knowing I could sell almost anything, I chose to enter the real estate industry and returned to my hometown of Chatham on Cape Cod to make my mark. My familiarity with the townand the people made a true difference in my success.After owning Chatham Real Estate for thirty years, I transitioned the company to Gibson Sothebys International Realty, the best brand in the industry.

Clients turn and routinely return to me because of my keen knowledge of the area and the success I have had helping clients reach their goals and dreams of property ownership on Cape Cod.
What are some of your favorite local activities or organizations that you participate in?
I enjoy serving on the Professional Standards Committee in the Cape Cod and Islands Association of REALTORS, and also volunteering where I can throughout my community.
What about the Chatham and Cape Cod lifestyle excites you most?
I love boating, fishing, and spending time at a beach cottage that I own on North Beach Island with my two brothers and three best friends. I enjoy exercising and fitting in a bit of golf at Eastward Ho! Country ClubI hope to spend more time with the great sport in 2020.
