Growing up in the area and residing in Adams, I am proud to call The Berkshires my home. Real estate piqued my interest while I was teaching music in the public school systems of North Adams and Adams-Cheshire during the 80’s and 90’s. My real estate career began nearly 20 years ago when I passed my Massachusetts State Real Estate Exam, obtained my MA real estate license and started my business with Steepleview Realty the year it opened its doors…1998. Since then I have acquired real estate licenses in New York and Vermont, giving me greater opportunities to work with buyers and sellers in the tri-state area and helping them to achieve their real estate goals. I attribute my success in the real estate business to Steepleview Realty’s team oriented approach, on-going educational opportunities and training sessions provided by the company AND to my prior professional experience as a licensed music educator in the region, working with faculty, students and staff where I developed many of the skills I use on a day to day basis with my clients and customers. When I’m not immersed in real estate, I love to travel, spend time with my family and friends, sing, and serve the community at large through various projects and activities…where I feel I can make a difference in people’s lives. My husband Paul and I have three grown children: Evan, Katie and Nathan and 2 grandchildren.
