We met while working together at a real estate office and quickly became friends. We soon realized that we shared the same commitment and dedication to client service and professionalism. We worked together on several transactions and the feedback we got from our clients was terrific (see our testimonials). As a result, we decided to form a team. Combining over 30 years of real estate law and sales and marketing experience, we bring complementary skills to our partnership. Since joining Keller Williams in 2015, we have been in the top 20% in our market center of over 200 agents, and are honored to serve on the Agent Leadership Council.

We work collaboratively to provide our clients with extraordinary support, service and accessibility throughout the process. Our objective is for our clients to have an enjoyable, stress free experience during the purchase or sale of their home.

Our affiliations include: the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, the Greater Boston Real Estate Board, the Massachusetts Association of Realtors, the National Association of Realtors and the Newton- Needham Regional Chamber.

Our designations include: Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, Seniors Real Estate Specialist, Notary Public



I grew up in Newton, and I absolutely love these communities in which I live and work. My husband Jorge and I live in Newton Corner where we have raised our three children. I attended Newton public schools, and graduated from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

Prior to real estate, I had a 25 year career as a sales executive in the health care industry, which cultivated my passion for client focus, relationship building and transaction management; skills which I continue to call upon each and every day.



I grew up in Belmont and, with my husband, have raised our 4 children here, along with assorted chickens and cats. I attended the Belmont public schools, Wheaton College, BU School of Law and BU Graduate School of Management.

Prior to becoming a real estate broker, I was a partner in a Brookline law firm focusing my practice in real estate law and estate planning and administration. I utilize my knowledge of the Greater Boston real estate market and the skills gained in my legal career to help my clients achieve their real estate goals.

I have been involved in a variety of school and community organizations over the years and am currently on the Board of Directors of the Belmont Woman’s Club.
