About Rene

A home is much more than a roof over our heads, it's where life happens, where we engage and care for those we love. My client’s goals are key to what motivates me. The greatest single factor in satisfying my clients is the service they experience. Having a plan, working hard, responding quickly, thinking creatively, expecting the unexpected and ultimately doing whatever is necessary to ensure that their goals are met – these are all vital elements to delivering excellent service.

Having sold real estate on the North Shore since 2002, I have experience in fast-moving and slower markets and can manage the marketing process and search effort with ease and confidence. My past work experience both in interior design, catering and specialty food sales has taught me to listen well, be intuitive and creatively problem solve while remaining a calming force in all situations.

My home for the last 30 years has been on the North Shore, where we've raised three kids. I am a consultant for my husband's company - Benchmark Carpentry & Woodworks LLC, renovating homes and utilizing my design skills all while continuing to be in leadership roles in our community and church. This gives me the unique ability and perspective to guide buyers and sellers in making the best investment.
