Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, my dad was a Bricklayer and my mom a homemaker. Later, the two formed their own real estate company from which they retired in their early 70s. Their experience and way of life was the foundation of my strong work ethic. I graduated from Boston College with a business degree and, like traditional northeast people, started my professional career working for a Fortune 500 company — Digital Equipment Corporation, the second largest tech corporation after IBM at that time.
After 10 years of career growth culminating in managing DEC’s strategic major accounts, my desire to broaden my perspective led me to accept an executive sales role with a software company in Los Angeles. Of course, the geographical location lent itself to getaways in Hawaii. It is during one of these trips that I decided I had had enough of the corporate rat race. I wanted to explore another world: waking up each day to breathtaking views, sunny days and a better quality of life.
Consistent with my ability to quickly recognize and act on an opportunity, I took a three-month sabbatical and moved to Maui. My conservative upbringing rationalized that I would take this time to get this paradise desire “out of my system” and then return to California. I never made it back!
Having purchased my first home at age 23, real estate was a familiar business and a natural progression for my career. I have owned my own real estate company (twice) and true to form, acted on many exciting, life and career-expanding opportunities during that time.
Professionally, my passion lies in establishing long term client relationships. Often my client’s real estate needs change throughout different stages of their lives. It is natural that many of my clients become close friends. I recognize the world is small and that Maui attracts a certain person. I help my clients make their best investment into the Maui lifestyle. They only deserve the best and my website SoldMaui.com exemplify my commitment.
