The Providence East Side
I moved to Providence 30 years ago,
after having lived in a lot of places - - New York, Boston, Cape Cod, Michigan, and even Japan. Location and a sense of home have always been important to me. At one time I strongly contemplated a career as an architect. I settled for restoring homes as a hobby and professionally helping people realize their real estate dreams as their Realtor.
I met my wife Clary in Providence (she was my next-door neighbor). Clary is from Chicago. After graduating from RISD, she decided to stay here. Clary is a master printmaker, wonderful chef, devoted mother and loves to restore old houses too.
We enjoyed raising our son in Providence's small Ivy League college town environment. He is now away and on his own, but we still travel together to ski. In recent years we've skied Lake Tahoe, Alta, Whistler, Aspen and locally at Killington, Stowe and Sunday River.
Grace is the fourth member of our household. She is an Irish Wolfhound. Can't forget to mention Louie, our Manx cat.
I have a strong interest in decorative arts and design and was a pretty serious collector of antiques and books. I study history and investing.
Prior to 2005, I owned a successful manufacturing business that provided employment for 30 people. Now as a Realtor, I'm focused on the one-on-one relationships that develop when helping individuals achieve their real estate goals. I'm very good at what I do. Many of my real estate clients have become close personal friends.
I've toured many hundreds of Providence homes with buyers, so think it's only fair to show you a couple of the East Side homes I've owned.
