In 1980, I decided not to pursue a career in law, and moved from Connecticut to the Vineyard, where I started a store called Trader Fred’s. Thirty-two years later, I still own the flourishing business. In 1996, I joined Jane Brown Associates, the Vineyard’s third oldest real estate firm. Because of my success during my first year with the company, the owner sold me the agency. Since then, we have expanded and now operate at a capacity that places us in the top ten. Through the years, I have developed many different strategies regarding buying and selling. I firmly believe that every sale dictates its own unique story and strategy, qualities which computer generated searches like Zillow cannot offer. I can give you my personal first-hand knowledge of the property and location. As evidence of my personal vested interest in the community, I have been a member of many non-profit boards. I have served as President for the Edgartown Board of Trade and presently serve and have been on The Edgartown Planning Board for more than nine years.

I have been involved in various aspects of the real estate field for over 25 years. During this time I have gained experience in the construction aspect and the details that are involved with the actual building of the home. Also the permitting process that the local towns require. This experience is essential to properly represent the potential buyer or seller. My representation and this experience has given me a healthy inventory of returning loyal clients who in turn send me referrals from their friends and relatives. My range of sales and clients cover the spectrum from very expensive properties to starter homes. I made the decision to make selling and renting properties my full time occupation in 1994 and have never looked back. I enjoy the interaction as an agent and consider every day and every sale as a learning experience. I feel very lucky to be able to be involved in a profession that I thoroughly enjoy and do very well at.

I grew up in West Hartford, Ct and at 16 years moved to western Massachusetts. I had property in Vermont and also lived in New York state. I attended Umass/Amherst and received my degree from SUNY. I loved those areas until I came to this beautiful island in 1979.1 vacationed on the vineyard from 1979 until moving here full time in 1989. I am really a beach person. I love the surf at any of the Atlantic south facing beaches. I enjoy boating and hiking and going out to dinner in any one of this islands beautiful locations. I feel very lucky everyday to be living in such spectacular place. lt is truly a paradise.
