About me

I am originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I studied at Temple University, St. Joseph's College and earned a Bachelors degree from the University of Wisconsin, Superior. I taught school in New Jersey and then obtained a Masters degree from Monmouth University and subsequently became a guidance counselor. I coached speech and debate, ran a readers theater, mime group and directed stage plays.
I have worked for two New Jersey government counties as a Director of Training and an administrator. I have managed people, written and received state and federal grants and waited tables both in my teens and in my thirties. ( it was easier in my teens)
In 1986 I began to list and sell real estate after becoming an investor a few years earlier. I have met, helped and worked with countless individuals and families over the years. I continued my real estate education and studied for, and secured a Brokers License in New Jersey where I lived and worked.
Life changes, and in January of 2013 I traded my New Jersey license for a Referral License so that I could continue to help clients find best possible person to help them buy or sell their home anywhere in the world.
I blog daily on Active Rain about issues related to real estate, home improvements, and investment strategies.
I coach agents, train individuals and offices, and counsel buyers and sellers, as well as provide a resource for contractors, stagers and other professionals to anyone needing help.
Other Interests
I have volunteered with animal rescue groups, and fostered pets that waited for their forever homes in my own. Fundraising is part of helping animals get help and homes and I have been involved in this as well.
Working with dogs and cats at adoption centers and screening potential pet parents, is something that I find more rewarding and more difficult than anything else I have ever done.
I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to have visited numerous countries all over the world, learning that home is different everywhere I go, and I enjoy meeting local people and observing every day life. I travel with groups made up of individuals from different countries and experiences, and sometimes independently.
I love antiques and buy and sell them through my Garage Sale Antiques in the Berkshires of Massachusetts where I now live.
