I have worked in residential real estate sales full time since July 2001. Always seeking to stay challenged, in 2004 I launched my own independent, non-franchise brokerage firm STAR REALTY in Hopkinton, MA.  Here's why I love my job:I'm good at it.  Always easy to like something at which you excel.Gratification. People truly appreciate the expert advice and counsel I give.  Many have expressed they feel extremely well-cared for as a whole person. Variety!  Every day is different, every client is unique, every transaction represents a new challenge.I'm "the boss".  I own the company and I can choose to run it as I see fit.  No need for nonsensical corporate run-around.Commute is fantastic.  Eight minutes door to door and the vast majority of my transactions take place in Hopkinton as well.All these factors contribute to the great quality of life I now enjoy with my three kids. Prior to real estate sales, I lived and worked in France (1990-1996) where I launched a small business, KVB Services, training corporate clients in the ways of American business communication, in English of course. Also, just for kicks in the Spring and early Summer, I worked as a Tour Director for EF Education Tours. Little known fact about me:  I got my private pilot's license in 1989 at the Santa Barbara airport.
