Where did you grow up? Brookline, Mass.
Growing up, what did you want to be? When I was 6, I wanted to be a “motorcycle man.” I know, it makes no sense! 🙂
What do you do to relax when you’re stressed? You will find me at Equinox. Yoga or weights.
If you could have lunch with a well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why? The President of the United States. I find qualities of leadership (on a big scale) fascinating. How to lead a family, an office, a community, a state or a country. I am sure I would have lots of questions!
Where is your favorite place to hang out? Sonsi, Stephanie’s on Newbury. Love the Back Bay.
What do you love most about the industry? What I sell. Boston homes are extremely unique. I love the clients and creating friendships with fellow agents, everyone working together towards a common goal.
How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents? I have my attention on the details. I’ve surrounded myself with excellent management and a great team. Team work is critical because I can’t be everywhere, to grow I’ve had to let go and trust. When I am hired my clients know the quality of marketing they will receive.
Other agents are not my competition, they are my allies. I follow industry leaders to keep up with national real estate trends.
What is the most difficult aspect of your job? To wake up and generate something “new” every single day.
Where do you go to network and meet new clients? I like to network through my spheres of influence. I play a lot of basketball in groups and in men’s leagues. That is an excellent source of clients because we have fun and trust each other. I am also involved with a few Boston community groups and charitable organizations.
What has been your greatest accomplishment? Being recognized as one of the top 50 real estate professionals in the US under the age of 30.

What is your favorite restaurant? True Bistro when I pretend to be vegan.
Abe and Louie’s when I need a classic steak.

What kind of car do you drive? Mercedes Benz.
Smartphone or paper? Smartphone.
What is your favorite city after Boston? Chicago. Of course New York is a close second. Chicago just reminds me of home.
