Q: Tell us about your business?
A: Real Estate Agent specializing in Island and Lakefront Property on Lake Winnipesaukee.
Q: Tell us about yourself:
A: I grew up in Melrose, MA and summered in Alton Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee since early childhood. Moved to Alton Bay with my husband and two children in 2002. Prior to that I worked for a large global consulting firm as an Administrative Assistant. I started selling Real Estate 8 years ago and have combined my passion for the lake in work. Truly feel blessed. In my spare time, I enjoy water and snow skiing, boating, snowmobiling, running and spending time with family at the Lake.
Q: How did your business get started?
A: I decided 9 years ago to get my real estate license and thought I would dabble in it. Little did I know it would turn into a successful business selling real estate in my boat on the Islands of Winnipesaukee. I was fortunate to have friends in the business that aided me in my endeavor from the beginning.
Q: What has your relationship with the Alton Business Association done for you or
A: Meeting like-minded people, and improving my awareness of local businesses and business owners.
Q: What do you value most about this community?
A: Small town antics, the people, and the beauty of my surroundings. I would not want to live anywhere else in the world.
Q: Why did you want to open your business in this community?
A: Because I have a true passion for the area and what it has to offer, and incorporating that into my work has truly been a dream come true. I feel most comfortable behind the wheel of a boat, and to be able to spend much of my work day out on the lake is amazing.
Q: What business accomplishment are you most proud of?
A: Along with my business partner, continuing to be #1 in Island sales consistently every year.
Q: What does the future hold for you and your business?
A: Continued growth in sales, and improving upon our marketing strategy.
Q: What is one piece of advice you wish you had as a new business member?
