I am Director of Lodging and Hospitaility Brokerage with The Swan Agency Sotheby's International Realty. I specialize in selling inns, hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts statewide.
I'm a right brain optimist, cookbook author of The Art of Breakfast and former Maine Innkeeper.
As a native Washingtonian who grew up in the Maryland/DC suburbs before moving to Maine, I have fully embraced a more enjoyable pace; "Maine, the way life should be”. I have over 25 years of experience in the real estate management, construction, brokerage and have been a commercial lodging and hospitality broker in Maine since 2008 with 45+ lodging and hospitality sales. I'm a guest chef instructor at Stonewall Kitchen in York, Maine where I offer brunch and dinner cooking classes. I hope my passions about food, photography, art, Maine travel, social media and inspiring others is evident in my daily social media posts and life interactions.
I have three mottoes: everything in moderation; wine and cheese daily; and my glass is always half full.
I won the Maine Lobster Chef of the Year People’s Choice at Harvest on the Harbor in October 2018 and won both first place Judge’s and People’s Choice for my Best Lobster Bite at the 2018 Boothbay Harbor Claw Down competition in October. Both were real shockers and never expected!
Along with marketing, Social Media and visual marketing using quality photography of inns and B&B's in Maine, I focus on some of the more emotional common elements which draw us to innkeeping - food, wine, travel, art and entertaining. I use social media networking in addition to professional networking to maximize exposure of my listings. I am involved with teaching Inn/B&B seminars and help aspiring innkeepers in their transition once they purchase their inn.
I don't sell real estate, I sell a lifestyle. Buying an Inn/B&B provides a job, home, investment and a lifestyle.
