We launched Avenue 3 Real Estate in 2008 to create a company that would adapt to a new real estate reality, answering our client's call for flexibility, premiere service, intelligent marketing and transparency.
"With a real estate career spanning over twenty years, I've seen the evolution of our industry from several perspectives. As I moved from a sales agent and relocation coordinator in a small local office to the manager of a national franchise office with 85+ agents, I've witnessed the joys and rewards as well as the frustrations and challenges of our business. Our industry has been impacted by remarkable developments. I welcome the recent technological advances that have improved our ability to service the consumer, but real estate is a relationship based business and my success has been determined by constant networking and focusing on the consumer's (or agent's) needs. Whether I was counseling a buyer or seller or coaching a sales agent, my job was to listen, to respond and to advise with competence and care. I look forward to continuing that practice at Avenue 3." -D.H.
"My professional journey began in advertising at McCann-Erickson, San Francisco, working with real estate, retail and banking clients. I returned to the Boston area as an Asset Manager for 10 years with Liberty Real Estate Group (subsidiary of Liberty Mutual) and then to retail real estate with Coldwell Banker and now as a partner at Avenue 3. However, the real estate experience is only gauged if the buyer or client is satisfied in their purchase or sale. Most information is beyond the "listing" sheet or city assessment. My value to you is looking at the zoning, upside potential, and advice given the past and current trends. Hopefully, we can work together in an open and direct manner. I believe that "give and take" leads to the best outcome for the client." -J.C.
"After graduating from Harvard many years ago, I took my interest in architecture into real estate sales as a short term job. Twenty plus years later, I am still a Realtor. The past two decades have been spent working for small and large firms, helping many wonderful people buy or sell their homes. In addition, I have vented my architectural interests with multiple renovation projects in properties throughout the Greater Boston area. I have extensive experience in property sales, renovations, management, and conversion." -K.L.
"Since 1984, I have been an active real estate professional. I have seen growth in my community and the surrounding towns, new and exciting changes, from the building of new schools, to the proliferation of restaurants that were once available only with a ride into Boston. These changes parallel the change in the way we conduct business. We are in the midst of an exciting paradigm shift. My career has been shaped by adapting to the changes in our industry, as well as market conditions, over the past 20 years. I continue to embrace the new technologies that make us more efficient and I am enthusiastic about having the opportunity to use my background in the visual arts in contributing to the crafting of the Avenue 3 website." -L.A.
"I have worked in the real estate industry specializing in investment property for the last 10 years. I view every property as "investment property" whether it is a studio condo, 3 family building or your for the ideal home or "cash-cow" investment property. Finally, always walk the neighborhood at various times of the day / night before you finalize your decision."dream" home, whatever that may be. All real estate is an investment and you do not want to make the wrong decision. I also think it is better to be cautious and bring along a "negative Gus" when purchasing any type of real estate. The consumer sometimes needs to have an agent who may dampen the excitement of what they might perceive as the perfect home. I remember one of my first transactions in which the parking had to be arranged via a nearby church and I never said much to the buyer about it. However, it is always better to bring up the future and present "sticking" points with a half-empty manner and look at the possibilities. You will most likely sell that property within 10 or less years and you do not want to have any complications with your future buyer. It is always difficult for a buyer to imagine selling but continue to view your property from the buying prospective. This includes improvements you make during ownership (i.e: return on your investment)... I hope this approach might be a match as you search" -R.R.
