Holly spent almost 25 years in Advertising, Marketing, and Market Research in cities like New York, San Francisco, and Chicago. After living, renting, and owning in such diverse markets, Holly has a deep understanding of how to help people buy and sell their homes, and for looking for potential beyond the MLS listings. After a 5-year stint as a Licensed Therapeutic Riding Instructor, Holly had to close her non-profit business because of COVID-19, so she decided it was time to become a licensed Realtor.
Holly has a degree in Marketing and a minor in Anthropology – it is no wonder that she ended up in Advertising and Market Research! Holly owned her own ethnography business (the study of consumers for big marketers) which helped her to hone her listening skills and further understand the ‘why’ behind people’s behavior studying factors like motivations, unmet needs, and pain points. These unique skills help Holly to assist her clients in ways that other Realtors are not equipped. Whether it be buying or selling your home, Holly’s objective is to help her clients achieve their goals! Holly’s clients would describe her as inquisitive, compassionate, and hard-working and she is skilled at uncovering her client’s wants and needs and helping them to prioritize those needs!
Holly grew up in Washington State, but she had a lot of family on the East Coast and spent the earlier part of her career in Advertising and Marketing moving often to follow the jobs. Holly currently lives just northwest of Boston in a town called Lincoln, MA with her husband, daughter, and a multitude of pets including a horse named Sir George.
