I believe in continuing my education and participating in my associations by serving on committees. This helps me stay up to date with trends, build better relationships with my peers, and provide my clients with a well-rounded perspective and up-to-date, comprehensive information.
What they've said .... "You made it possible to not only find our dream house, also to negotiate a contract at a price we could afford. Your professionalism toward your clients and your expertise in the field is only surpassed by your ability to listen to the needs and desires of your clients. Thank you again for all your help" Kurt & Rebecca D.
Some Of My Favorite Things:
Hiking, Skiing, Tennis, and of course, Family and Friends ....... Giving back - I traveled with Global Impact Tours to The House of Friendship orphanage (founded by Sister Theresa) to help bring funds and relief to young girls Racetrack -- not the ponies but cars. I love to "race" them. Through the local Porsche Club I've had the opportunity to participate in "driver's ed" events and have become a better driver. Not to mention, it was FUN! Dining ... we do enjoy cooking and grilling at home many evenings, often with friends or family. But dining out is also very enjoyable. My favorites are, the sophisticated burger & beer in the area at the Trap Rock in Berkeley Heights, NJ, yummy sushi at Yuki Hana in Madison, NJ or Sushi Lounge in Morristown, NJ , french-thai specialties at Origins, special occasions at Restaurant Serenade in Chatham, NJ and great Italian food at my mother's house most Sundays. Cooking ... we have not yet found a recipe we have not liked at CookingLight.com. Fresh, quality ingredients from the local Farmer's Markets, Kings Supermarket in Chatham, Summit, Short Hills and Morristown or Whole Foods Market in Madison certainly help. Buon appetito! History ... I was born in the seaport city of Trieste , Italy (northeast of Venice and on the Croatian border), did most of my growing up in Hoboken, NJ, attended Montclair State University and then began a publishing/marketing career in New York City, managing circulation for children's magazines in the Sesame Street family. In my mid-20's, I moved to Boulder, Colorado, where publishing opportunities were not plentiful and so began my real estate career. When I moved back to NJ, there was nothing more I wanted to do but continue to help people like you buy and sell homes in a caring, professional way. I am fluent in Italian (practicing most Sunday evenings at my mother's house) and I have been studying French for the last 5 years, including a 2-month stint at schools in Paris and Nice . Yes, it was really fun! If this is not yet enough information, you may want to know I was married on April 1, 2007 and am lucky that my husband, who is an engineer, enjoys most of the same things I do. As they say on the t-shirts, Life is Good. Enjoy and be well!
