Born and raised in Somerville, I have been working in Arlington and local real estate for going on 30 years. I own several investment properties personally, and am intimately familiar with multi-family properties as well as the local housing market, neighborhoods, values, and trends. While Arlington has a desirable school system and tends to be less transitory, Somerville leans more towards the first time buyer or renter with a 3-5 year on average term of residency. Developers and investors comprise more of the buyer pool for Somerville properties versus Arlington. Both Arlington and Somerville feature a perceived lifestyle that attracts particular profiles of buyers. The red line remains ever popular; whether settling in Somerville, Cambridge, or Arlington. The Green Line Extension and development in East Somerville is changing the landscape and having a positive effect on property values. All neighborhoods around the new Green Line stations, and Union Square, are burgeoning and adding value to the homes in those area! In Arlington, a good proportion of our buyers are moving from a more urban environment to the nesting stage of their lives. Often this buyer is transitioning from renting, or ownership of a first purchase condo, and motivated by a lifestyle change (marriage, birth of a child). And today, more boomers are buying in the burbs, liberated from a 5-day work week commute. The suburbs are on fire and now experiencing the hotly competitive marketplace we've been working in for decades! No matter your real estate needs, I welcome the opportunity to assist you in Arlington, Somerville, Cambridge, Medford, Belmont, Watertown, Lexington, Winchester as primary markets, and many other towns on a referral basis. If you're searching for a home, as your Buyer's Agent, I will counsel you so you can make educated decisions, and will always advocate solely for the most advantageous outcome. As your representative, I apply honed skills, an awareness of the marketplace and patterns, expert knowledge, and abundant resources acquired from 30 years of working in the local market. My goal is to help you navigate the course, avoid the pitfalls, and to provide a smooth, successful, and satisfying experience! I obtained my real estate license 30 years ago. Back when there was no buyer agency. Being a single woman making the journey to homeownership on my own, I valued getting an education first, and there was planted the first seed when I obtained a real estate license for personal purposes. After purchasing a 3rd investment property, and forever having my nose ‘in the market’, I decided to take a giant leap of faith, leave the business world behind, and begin a career in real estate - fondly referred to as ‘going from the fire into the frying pan”! Every day is interesting, fueled with adrenaline, and exciting! Purchasing or selling a home is a huge event in your life. Hire a seasoned agent who is equally dedicated to your goal! I both recognize, and appreciate, the magnitude of your decision to buy, or sell, and I am committed to providing you with full service, time, and attention. Many homebuyers and homesellers have placed their confidence and trust in me, repeatedly. My past clients have endorsed me wholeheartedly. My 100% satisfaction rating (via independent survey) is reflective of the dedication I bring to every transaction. All agents are not created equal. Choose to work with an agent who is spirited, enthusiastic, and successful. You deserve no less.
