Where were born and raised:
Tom grew up on a horse and cattle farm in Ohio. My family traveled extensively summering in New England, on the mid- coast of Maine and wintering in the Florida Keys. “We spent so much time in beautiful places as a child, I really developed an eye for distinctive and unique property even at an early age.”

Career prior to real estate: Prior to moving to Boston, Tom was a Lead Wilderness Instructor for Hurricane Island Outward Bound School, facilitating students decision making capabilities in stressful situations while maintaining their emotional and physical safety. In what city do you live:
I split my time between my homes in Boston’s South End and the Ipswich Country Club on the North Shore. This gives me a great prospective personally and professionally as I am knowledgeable about the both in-town and suburban markets. I check the markets daily and enjoy sharing my knowledge with my clients.
Parts of your personality that make you a good agent:
I treat every client as an individual and realize that every one of my clients brings a unique perspective to the table. I try to understand where they are coming from and then work hard to exceed their expectations. You will have the added benefit of working with a full time broker who understands your needs when buying,selling, or relocating. I am by nature inquisitive and come up with creative solutions. I am a communicator and I do what I say I am going to do.

The achievement I am probably most proud of to date is I solo hiked the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. 2,163 miles. AND sold the most expensive single family home in Dorchester in 2005.
