Thank you for taking the time to explore the potential to work together on buying or selling your home. Prior to real estate, I worked in finance in investments, sales and relationship managementroles. I greatly enjoyed the various positions I held within financial services but always found myself drawn to real estate. I would attend open houses, track local market trends and constantly monitored and researched active inventory in the city and commutable suburbs. In the summer of 2010, I decided to leave my job as a seed money analyst to pursue a full-time career in real estate.

Real Estate haallowed me to combine my strong analytical background, marketing expertise, negotiating skills, and a love of helping clients achieve their goals. I take great care in my product, you the client, through the practices and principles I put into place. 

The areas in whi
ch I cover range from Boston, North Shore, Metrowest and the Cape. I currently operate my full service team through both the The Collaborative Company and Coldwell Banker ResidentialI believe that by partnering with both TCC and Coldwell Banker I am able to offer my clients the widest breadth of market knowledge from large scale new development to single unit dwellings. Both firms believe in the same white glove service that the McLaren Team provides. I am in this business to build relationships, not to shuffle through transactions. My team and I stay dedicated long after the closing and continue to assist clients, whether it’s finding them a mortgage broker to refinance, a contractor to help with new kitchen designs or just finding a great place to eat in their new neighborhood.
