What is something your clients find comfort in that makes them turn to you for their real estate needs?
I am dedicated to providing exceptional client communication and maintaining strong relationships built on trust and honesty. I understand that uncertainty can be uncomfortable, so I make it a priority to keep my clients informed and updated throughout the process. If a client has a question or request, I respond promptly, even if it's just to acknowledge their message and let them know that I am working on finding a solution. In the event I am unable to provide an answer immediately, I still be sure to keep my clients up to date which goes a long way in putting them at ease.
What are some of your favorite local hobbies, activities, or organizations that you participate in?
Spending quality time with my family and close friends is a top priority for me as I am highly family-oriented. My parents live just north of Boston, so I make an effort to visit them for a day or two whenever my schedule allows.
Additionally, I am passionate about fitness, which includes weight lifting, running, throwing a football, playing tennis, or doing any competitive activity. I also enjoy watching a variety of sports, especially football, mixed martial arts, and tennis.
Lastly, because I am curious by nature, I enjoy reading nonfiction and researching topics of interest.
What do you love most about where you live and work?
I currently reside with my older brother in a certain section of Brighton which is surrounded by wildlife. This has been incredibly enjoyable for me given my love for animals. The area is also great for walks, convenient to activities in Boston, and has great parking, which I’ve learned to appreciate after living on Commonwealth Avenue for two years!
On the whole, I find Boston's historical significance incredibly fascinating. As a former marine engineering undergraduate student at Maine Maritime Academy, I had the opportunity to spend three successive summers working on large sea-going vessels sailing across the Atlantic to several European locations, where I developed an appreciation for European-style architecture and culture. Boston has much of the same ambiance, which I find appealing.
Any favorite spots in the Boston area?
It’s too hard to choose just one because each neighborhood in Boston is so distinct. It depends on who I am with and how I feel at the time; but a few of note are Back Bay, Beacon Hill, and the Faneuil Hall area.
What are three sources of joy in your week?
I am very devoted to a daily routine of waking up early, working out, and reading. Similarly, I enjoy using the last couple of hours of the night to rest and unwind. I also enjoy keeping in touch with family and friends, and when the opportunity presents itself, going to a good restaurant.
