Kate was born and raised in BARRINGTON, RI and fortunate enough to spend her summers in NEWPORT, RI. Ed is a native BRISTOLIAN, and raised both of his children in BARRINGTON, RI. We both have thriving twin boys, and enjoy spending time with them, gathering with our dear friends and traveling the world to explore new cultures and build new relationships. Kate is an active member with the Sarasota Rotary Club, Nexus Women in Leadership, SW Region Alumni board member for the University of Rhode Island, and we both are deeply engaged with our local Sarasota Chamber of Commerce and Greater Newport Rhode Island Chamber. We've been living in Sarasota, Florida, one of the most popular cities of Southwest Florida since 2011. We love its vibrant arts community; it even hosts an Opera House. There is an abundance of fabulous restaurants, unique shopping, farmers markets and beautiful beaches abound and a lovely diverse community. Sarasota offers every opportunity for an active, outdoor lifestyle to meet your personal desires.
Ed has countless years of experience in property management and has always enjoyed buying and selling homes for personal use. Kate is a devoted Real Estate professional and passionate interior designer, specializing in luxury home sales and marketing. We own several wonderful investment properties that we frequently rent as Airbnb's and love the cherished friendships we've fostered there.
Needless to say, we both absolutely love all aspects of Real Estate. It has never been just a job for us, but a passion. As Real Estate professionals, we have the opportunity to provide buyers with homes that fit their unique needs and lifestyle, and sellers the services and support they need to maximize their ROI each and every time. It's so important for us to get to know our clients on a deeper level, allowing us to better understand how you're living, how you want to live, and what your unique needs are. To us, this is not work! It's EVERYTHING.
When a client is preparing to sell their home, we do extensive research. We provide data-based recommendations and construct a comprehensive marketing plan to sell right and sell fast. We don't believe in letting homes sit on the market! Years of industry experience reveals this is the number one most common failure among sellers who attempt to sell privately and not use an agent. The longer a home sits, the more its value depreciates. That's just one reason we are SERIOUS ABOUT SOLD.
We get involved in every detail, from fully preparing a home to be SHOW READY to implementing a fully optimized and CUSTOM MARKETING PLAN for maximum exposure and maximum ROI. We are a team that radiates enthusiasm. In fact, we approach each listing as if it's our own property.
In both buying and selling, we heavily utilize our negotiation skills. We are dedicated to the process, project managing from start to close with secure and constant communication while we create a seamless and stress-free environment for you. We take a complete hands-on role, building lifelong experiences along the way!
