What did you do before real estate and how did you get started in the business?
I worked as an SAP technical consultant for numerous companies throughout the country.My husband, Hans-Peter, is a consultant and travels all the time, so I was the solo parent during the week. I stayed at home with my girls for 8 years. My kids were in school full-time and I needed to get busy andreturn to the business world. I needed to find a job where I could have flexible hours and work around my children's schedules.I tried IT software recruiting, which was fun, but I found my clients calling me to help them find housing and offer my opinion on the various areas of the city.It was a natural progression into real estate.
What is something your clients find comfort in that makes them turn to you for their real estate needs?
I work very hard to ensure that my clients feel I am representing them to the highest standard. My knowledge of the local community and experience representing buyers and sellers offer each client the confidence that they are working with a professional. Nothing is more exciting than the gratifying feeling I receive from helping people meet their real estate needs. I feel it is my responsibility to help my clients achieve their goals in the real estate market.

What are some of your favorite local organizations or activities that you participate in?
The Cohasset Chamber is a pleasure to work with because of our amazing community. All the business owners take the time and effort to make Cohasset Village a very special place to visit. We hold the Holiday Stroll and Summer Fun Day which both attract people from all over. I am a former Girl Scout leader of twelve years, a National Association of Women member, and an active participant in the South Shore Hospital's Moonlight Gala event.
I love dogs and I enjoy walking with fellow dog walkers on the beach and through the numerous trails in Cohasset. I have come to truly appreciate the opportunity to walk a gorgeous beach and breathe in the fresh salt air. It always recalibrates my state of mind to a positive outlook.
What do you love most about where you live and work?
Cohasset is one of those towns where you will always find someone to help when you're in need. Whether it's looking for a missing dog, creating an amazing costume on Halloween Day to make a child feel special, or helping out with homeworkCohasset is a town where the community comes together to improve our schools. It's one of those towns where you know others are looking out for you and your family and will always have your back. Spending time at the sandbar at Bassing Beach looking for shells and visiting with friends will always be a part of our family stories. I am very grateful to call Cohasset my home.
I also work at the sweetest corner office in the prominent Cohasset Village. Everybody loves our window front and will stop and check out the latest listings. Our office is a welcoming place for all. Since 2020, I have been collaborating with my business partner, Karen Peters, and I believe we offer a more innovative approach to our business. I truly believe that I am surrounded by an amazing team of brokers that are team players and want to see us all be successful. I love my job and not everybody can say that.
