My husband and I moved back to Maine to be closer to my family, and for him to reconnect with his Bowdoin College (’64) roots. It has been the best move of our lives and I am eager to help others make the same move. Whether you are buying or selling, moving locally or from a thousand miles away, my professional real estate training and my personal experience will be invaluable in helping you to make the transition.
Following graduation from Wheaton College in 1973 I worked in college administration for ten years – including two years at the University of Maine at Orono. Then I joined my husband in a marina and boatyard on Cape Cod, where I became indoctrinated into the world of waterfront property ownership. In the late 1980s we developed a residential waterfront condominium project in South Florida – a wonderful opportunity to join the world of architects and the nuts and bolts of design/construction/real estate development. I earned my real estate license in Florida in 1988. Years later when we lived in Savannah, Georgia for five years, I again turned to the study of architecture and the business of real estate sales – a great combination!
I completed a master’s degree at Tufts University in the 1990s and went on for doctoral studies in architectural history at Boston University; during that time I taught art history at Plymouth State University and was a Teaching Fellow at Harvard University. My first book, Peabody & Stearns: Country Houses and Seaside Cottages, was published in January 2010!
Here in Maine, my husband and I have purchased investment property, renovated an historic 1850s home in Bucksport, and remodeled two homes for ourselves. I understand the processes of buying and selling real estate, because I have done it myself. Add the accumulated knowledge and experience of the brokerage team at Morton Real Estate, and you have an unbeatable combination to assist you in reaching your own real estate goals. Please allow me to facilitate the sale and/or purchase of your next primary residence, summer home, or investment property here in the great state of Maine.
