I've been in real estate for over 20 years. Formerly, I was in Washington, D.C. as legislative assistant to Congressman Stanley Tupper. Working for a congressman and learning to focus on constituents' needs was good training for real estate. This job is less about bricks and mortar and much more about human nature. It is very important to listen carefully to the client's concerns and to work diligently to make the buying or selling experience as smooth as possible. Over the years I've been fortunate to work with wonderful clients. I have a B.A. History & Government, University of Maine. For fun Ray and I enjoy our annual visits to Sanibel Island in Southwest Florida, and have collected more shells than we know what to do with. We also have great fun as the world's oldest "groupies" following our daughter and son-in-law's appearances with the Don Campbell Band.
