Real estate is in my blood. Born and raised in Connecticut with a builder/developer father I always enjoyed the field trips out to measure raw, vacant land. Those were the days of stone walls and old stumps marking boundaries.
I attended college in New Hampshire, then worked as a real estate paralegal since 1980. That experience has given me an edge over my competition. Writing, reviewing and explaining contracts is second nature to me. I have also worked as a property manager when not a landlord myself.
I have travelled in all but 2 states in the U.S. and many countries abroad. Before discovering beautiful North Idaho I spent 20 plus years as a volunteer in my childrens schools, my neighborhood association and town politics in Fairfield, Connecticut.
