The Village of Contoocook (Hopkinton), just north of Concord, NH is my home. I work for Homequest Real Estate, The family atmosphere and supportive environment makes for happy agents. There is always someone to give a hand,share their knowledge or even pick up lunch!
I concentrate my efforts on Merrimack County and towns within it. This has enabled me to be knowledgeable of values, attributes and unique traits of any given town or area. Merrimack County reflects an exciting diversity of landscape, villages, lakes,mountains,rivers and of course the Capitol City of Concord. This is a wonderful area to put down roots!
After living in the same house for 26 years my family and I have recently moved and downsized. During all of this I have experienced and seen Real Estate go through some remarkable changes.
I have been married for 40 years and have one son, who is 26. We have two small dogs who are very noisy but give my husband and I many humorous moments!
WHY ME ??
I believe that the most important part of my job is being educated in the process. If I know my business then I can use that knowledge to better serve my clients,both Buyer and Seller. To that end I make an effort to take many education classes as they are offered during the year. I acquired my GRI from the RE Institute. That alone required 80 hours of education. I am also Certified in Buyer Representation. I have also been inducted into the NHAR Honor Society for the past 4 years.
I have recently earned my SRES designation. This will enable me to uniquely serve the needs of the Senior Community.I decided to expand into this niche' because I feel my own recent personal experiences and my peer relationship will give me a unique perception of Seniors and their issues.
Real Estate is one of the few businesses that encompasses "friendly" rivals. To furthur good relationships in my RE community I am an active member of several State Realtor committies.
Volunteering is an important part of my life. I am the Board Chair for The Parent Information Center, a local community non-profit. This organization helps familys with children with disabilities.I am also increasingly involved in the tecnological aspects of my Profession. I find the changes to be really exciting.
I spent many years in the food service industry. For 7 years I had my own company -a cafeteria franchise business-Joni's Tidbits Cafe. This business required me to develop the skills of Management, Mediation, Negotiation and Positive Interaction. Real Estate was a smooth transition! Same skill set just a different venue.
In conclusion...I really love what I do. I meet many wonderful people. I am constantly challenged with interesting situations and I have unexpectadly discoverd a whole new circle of friends!
I will work hard for YOU.
Nurturing valuable associations with several Lenders, Home Inspectors, and Home Related Service people whom I can recommend in confidence assures my clients of good representation. I refer only those people who subscribe to the same Service ethic that I personally try to uphold.
I like working with motivated Sellers and I pride myself on my frequent communication and collaboration with them. "Team work" sells! I always do assisted showings. No lock boxes or single broker showings. I feel your property is my responsibility, and to show it in it's best light ... I should be there.
I have additional training in Buyer representation. I have a special fondness for first time home buyers! Their special excitement is always "new" even after many transactions. And I never tire of it. I am proud to be a surrogate "Grandmother" to many new 2cd generations. I look forward to pictures and emails detailing their many milestones.
I'm now preparing to practice these skills in an additional client niche'. I plan to also be working with Seniors and their familys to help smooth the way over many diverse ostacles unique to the"boomer" generation and beyond.
Client service is my priority. I work in Buyer and Seller representation. I'm active in several State Board committees. I am especially interested in Senior needs, interests and issues.
