I am often asked two specific questions: - What brought me to Boston, Massachusetts? and - How did I get started in Real Estate? Well, I was born and raised in the Islands of Bermuda and my first "taste" of Boston was back in 1991 while visiting a long lost friend who attended Emerson University. It was through the initial introduction to this incredible City that would later decide my destiny; Boston, Massachusetts was to be my new home. Boston is a VERY user-friendly City and a "melting pot" of cultures and people from all over the world. I am always excited to experience the 4 distinctive seasons every year and even the occasional abrasive winters keep me interested. I enjoy the atmosphere of the east coast and the close proximity to New York, Vermont, Nantucket, the Cape and of course Bermuda which makes this City & State the ideal destination.

I have been fortunate to meet MANY intriguing people during my 15+ years as a permanent Boston resident. The City is small enough to run into familiar faces around the Back Bay & Downtown, but large enough to stay enlightened by the many residents and transplants into the area. As for Real Estate, that's another twist of fate. I bought my first home, a 2-Family, back in 1993 and although I was very young and inexperienced I could not have completed such an important transaction without the aid of my "Team"; my Realtor, Mortgage Broker, Real Estate Attorney and my Contractors. I realized right away that Real Estate transactions are not as simple as an automobile purchase and they require a team of dedicated professionals who will follow through with every necessary detail.

Buying and Selling Real Estate at ANY price level is a serious venture and should not be taken likely. There are qualified professionals in every field from auto mechanics to tax accountants and we rely on their training and expertise to complete the job successfully. This is also true for Realtors®! After spending almost 20 years in the Hospitality & Service Industry (operating restaurants & nightclubs in Bermuda & Boston), I fell back into Real Estate for my own personal ventures as well as the opportunity to work with others in reaching similar goals. Suddenly, I found myself very active as a Buyer's and Seller's Agent, working with first-time Home Owners as well as experienced Investors. By combining my experience in the Hospitality Industry with the principles of Real Estate I have "branded" a new level of service with every Real Estate transaction. My Client's needs and goals are my top priority, therefore I give 100% towards every transaction. I look forward to earning your business.

Found a tenant for a home.

Norman will get everything done professionally with no hassles. Extremely reliable and dependable. Wouldn't work with any other real estate in Boston and I've lived in this city for almost 9 years. He has established connections with many local businesses for all your painting, handyman, electrical, housekeeping needs. Good communicator, patient, pleasant, and hard working.  More Less
