Michele and I are the Owner/Brokers of Squanicook Associates Real Estate. We started in real estate in the early 1980's and have seen numerous market conditions come and go. To that end, we have skills that only seasoned Realtors could know, and be able to apply. When we started in the business, interest rates were 18.5%!, but then most houses were less than $100,000!
We know how to market and sell homes in any market condition. Our biggest challenge in todays market is helping Sellers realize how the current conditions have affected their position. It has always been our premise to tell the "market truth" as we read it from MLS and report that to our Clients. We don't always get the "listing" because we are not willing to change or inflate the truth, just to say we got the lisitng.
We are trained in how to help clients through the SHORT SALE process, and help them avoid the far reaching effects of Forclosure and Bankruptcy.
I am a Massachusetts Certified Real Estate Instructor and qualified to teach more than 30, 2 hour Continuing Education courses. Here at the office, we can offer the pre-license course as well as Sales to Broker course. So if you are interested in a real estate career, there is no better place to learn and improve you skills, than here where a Broker always has time for you!
Michele and I are a real estate team, and for many years we have been known as the Hometeam. We have helped hundreds of people realize their real estate dreams.
I have been President of our local Realtor Board NCMAR (North Central Association of Realtors), as well as Treasurer. The board membership bestowed on me, the great honors of Realtor of the Year and Educator of the Year.
I enjoyed a 30 year career in The Coast Guard and Reserve. One of my last assignments was LHA (Local Housing Authority) Boston, in charge of all CG and some DOD Housing in the area.
