Welcome from Donna...

MA Real Estate in 2009 looking into 2010

Real Estate in MA, and throughout the country has been volatile over the past few months and years as the Market moves from boom to correction.  As we enter mid-2009, we find ourselves in a  Market that has lost significant value.  However, it presents a unique opportunity.     Looking to upgrade?   Now could be that time! ...Long Term Mortgage Rates are at an all time low.  While the home you own, may have experienced depreciation, the new home you  have been thinking about is much more affordable.   NOW IS A GREAT TIME TO BUY!

New to the Market?  What a great time to jump in!   The New First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit,
low interest Mortgage Rates  and attractively priced  homes have combined to create what may very well be a once in a life time  home buying opportunity.  This is a great time to see what might be there for you !  For more information about the First Time Home Buyer Credit click here:


Be careful what you say to your husband (in particular if you plan on keeping him)

I’ll do this for a couple of years…. GET Bored ...And Move On.

At least that’s what I thought in 1983. What I didn’t count  on was loving the profession and thoroughly enjoying the people I came in contact with.

It seems like yesterday. I had just passed my Real Estate Licensing Exam. I said to my husband “I’ll do this for a couple of years but then I think I’ll move on to something new. After all, you just show a couple of houses and then your customer buys one.” He just laughed at me (he has been a constant source of humor throughout our Marriage).

Each and very day I assist people and families with the most important investment of their lives. This is where your children will grow up, your haven after a long day’s work, a neighborhood and community to meet friends for life.  This is where you will protect and grow a significant part of your savings and investments. I have never lost sight of this and that is why I stay at the forefront of my profession in continuing education and services. And, that is also why, I provide and aintain this web site as a service to you.  

What have I done since 1983 besides get older (Sigh!)??? Well, I kept my husband for his humor...

Living in Framingham, I started my career as a salesperson in Sudbury. Upon attaining my Broker License I joined a start-up as the Assistant Manager. As the Business grew I created and Maintained a 3rd party relocation division, assisted in the training and directing the sales staff, maintained my personal customer base and attained the GRI designation (Graduate Realtor Institute).  

Looking for new challenges, I opened an office in Marlborough (for a company that will reain nameless) and became a Licensed Real Estate Instructor. The office was a success, but it was corporate policy that Managers could not sell. Quite simply, I missed interacting with the public and the day to day challenge of finding that “just right home”. Frankly, that was the reason I became a broker and it is what I truly enjoy about my profession.

 So, along with a family move to Upton, I changed offices and affiliations, returned to sales and attained the Certified Buyer Representative designation. Now, located at the Re/Max Executive Office in Hopkinton, I provide the services of a broker with a unique depth of experience rarely found in the industry.  

I continue to attend professional education courses, most recently attaining the E-PRO designation (a course dealing with the unique needs and services of Internet customers) in an effort to continue to provide cutting edge service.  

And, with all this, I have never lost sight of one thing. Whether you are relocating from out of state or moving down the street, this is one of the most important moves of your life. I hope it will be my privilege to assist you in finding a home that meets your needs and requirements.  

As a Broker with Re/Max Executive Hopkinton, my office is conveniently located at the crossroads of the Mass Pike (Route 90), Routes 495 and 9  providing excellent proximity to the surrounding towns of Westborough, Upton, Mendon, Holliston, Northborough, Southborough, Uxbridge and the MetroWest area including Wayland, Sudbury, Weston, Natick and Framingham from easily accessible Major Routes.
