Holly started in the real estate business in 1991. She was Manager of the Cumberland Office of Residential Properties for 24 years. She decided to step down as Manager in 2019 to embark on this new partnership in real estate with her husband, Bill. With Holly’s experience in real estate and Bill’s years in high tech and real estate marketing, they feel their close personal relationship will enable them to work well together. They are committed to the importance of listening, being proactive, responding to requests, and finding creative solutions to represent buyers and sellers in one of the most important, life time decisions.
Bill and Holly raised their family in Cumberland, but moved to Historic Benefit Street on the East Side in 2006. This history provides a strong knowledge of the housing market in Northern RI, near by Mass, and the greater Providence areas.
Holly takes pride in her creativity in helping a seller re-create the essence of his or her home with staging and that special touch to help tell a story to a new buyer.. She brings attention to detail, enthusiasm and passion for her business, and quick responsiveness to make things happen.
