Coast and Farm Luxury Real Estate: Expect More— Expect the Best

The Rhode Island/Connecticut coastline has always been my backyard. Growing up in Westerly, Rhode Island has given me the opportunity to experience some of the best of what coastal living offers. A stone’s throw over the Connecticut border are the hidden coastal nooks and crannies that can only be found— as they are— in New England. Travel 10 miles inland and you will find yourself along scenic rural roads where you might slow to see baby calves alongside their momma. Right here, combining coastal and county living, is New England at its finest. Now, I reside with my family on a small farm where you never know what we’ll be up to!


Education never stops. I earned two masters degrees that continue to help me grow in my quest to help others. Growing up, I learned about real estate through a family business close to my heart. When certain interests and ethics are embedded in you from a young age, they become you. My creative impulses coupled with a natural inclination to endlessly educate myself on the real estate market, morphed into the desire to invest myself into the arduous and gratifying career of a Realtor. It’s about being educated in what you do, being driven by a passion, and most of all, having both grit and heart. I began my real estate career in 2016 with the invaluable experience as a broker’s assistant for a well respected real estate brokerage in Rhode Island. That brokerage was Mott and Chace Sotheby’s International Realty. I was quite simply trained by the best. What intrigued me most was not only the art of listing homes, but the personal investment in helping buyers and sellers reach their goals and live their dream. It’s about people’s homes, sometimes their legacy “written on the walls,” and that’s a really big deal. 

Is Friend the Right Realtor for You?

With hundreds of Realtor’s to choose from, you just might need a Friend who understands your real estate goals.  Integrity, communication, understanding of client needs, and fiduciary responsibility are most important to me. In addition to my knowledge of the real estate market, I support my clients with design and remodeling insight for any space, with a style and appeal that is timeless. My husband has been a trusted professional in the building and remodeling industry for over 20 years. 


Whether you are just browsing the market with a feel of what could catch your eye and meet your situation, or needing to find the perfect home in record time, I will be invested in your search and ultimately the closing on a home that is right for you.        

A Realtor’s mind never goes to sleep— so you can.


Whether you need to sell or are just curious as to what your home is worth in a thriving market,  I’m ready to help.  As your listing agent, I will assist you in staging a home so that your property not only gets the high profile views, but the successful showings that will draw in the right buyers for your home. Potential buyers are everywhere. From start to close, the selling of your home will be completed flawlessly and with utmost professionalism. *Results are not guaranteed, but anything is possible!

-Investors, Seasonal, and Retirees- 

If you are in the market for investment or business property, the shoreline is and has always had, a thriving investment market. Perhaps you are looking for the perfect seasonal retreat or vacation home? Whether it is to enjoy time with your own family or share the opportunity with others- I grew up in this market niche. Planning for retirement? I can help make that happen whether you are looking for a retirement community, or simply eager to simplify where you call home. 

Home: It’s a place that evades time and lives on forever. 

It is that calm sense of stability that helps build your story. 

You just might need a “Friend” in real estate who understands. Always know that if I earn the privilege of being your realtor that I am grateful for your trust and support. 

All good things!
