NIKKI HOLMES & TEAM
Gold Rush Realty, Inc.
Auburn

I learned to love classic homes when I was very young. My father, a civil engineer, was an architect and a building designer at heart, and he taught me to appreciate design and form. I, too, became a civil engineer, but left in 2003 to pursue the thing that truly speaks to me: connecting people with the homes they love. Over the years, I have had the good fortune to love, improve, and enjoy many home styles including simple mountain cabins, Craftsman style homes and Sears Roebuck kit houses, mid-century modern homes and Eichlers, and a Victorian or two. My team and I work in and around all of Northern California, and in Lake Tahoe. We are based in the Sacramento and Sierra Foothills region.

ANNE LOVELAND
Loveland Carr Group at Coldwell Banker Realty
Los Angeles

I was born and raised in soulful, old homes. My mother & father always bought the biggest dump on the best street and set forth on a path the save it. They let me knock out walls, help strip wood and dip hardware. I watched Mom hang drywall, wallpaper and paint when she needed to make the dollar stretch and tho create beauty. For a time I wanted to avoid this hard works and earned an MBA followed by corporate marketing jobs at Disney and Nestle. The call returned and I joined the family real estate business 16 years ago. Today we help others in the best neighborhood in Los Angeles! Hancock Park is a historical overlay zone and is compromised of home from the early 1920s, many designed by noteworthy architects of the era. Nearly 40% are Mediterranean or Spanish, about 40% English or Tudor and a mix of Craftsman, Tradition, etc. No two are alike. For 40 years the Loveland Carr Group has been passionate about the value of this unique neighborhood, the extraordinary craftsmanship of the properties and showing others how to be good stewards of their own home.

SHANNON PROKUP
Red Oak Realty
Oakland

Most people would describe me as enthusiastic, which is exactly how I feel about real estate. I love talking about it and helping clients either sell and/or find the right home. And my stats show it: I have represented over 100 transactions valued at over $60M. Since 2018, I have been consistently ranked among the top 10% of agents in the Inner East Bay and my listings have sold an average of 13% over list price in an average of 24 days on market.* I am a Bay Area native. I grew up on the Peninsula and lived in San Francisco for 5 years before moving to Berkeley in 2002. I love the culture and diversity that the East Bay brings – who wouldn’t love our fantastic restaurants, outdoor recreational spaces and fantastic weather?! Before my career in real estate, I worked for 10 years as a paralegal at a construction litigation law firm in San Francisco. I have also owned my own business and managed family-owned property remodels and sales. I am a believer in addressing issues as they come up and to take corrective action as soon as possible. I am excellent at keeping clients up-to-date on the transaction and I always tell my clients the hard news, even if they do not want to hear it. I strive to be as upfront and available as needed during the escrow process. I know personally what it is like to wait by the phone to hear if your offer has been accepted and I do not lose sight that it is the client who is either buying or selling, not me. I work hard to alleviate client stress whenever possible and try to make each step of the process as transparent as possible. I enjoy spending time with my family, knitting, bicycling, hiking, and volunteering to support my son’s school as a member of the Stewardship Committee. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology and was awarded a Fulbright Hayes for intensive Swahili study in Tanzania and Zanzibar. I am a member of the National, California and Berkeley Association of Realtors.

JENNY APEL
Nostalgic Homes Group | Compass
Denver

My husband, Corey Wadley, and I are real estate professionals; this is our full time calling and our passion. I tell people I’m going to get the job done but we’re also going to have some fun along the way! Vintage homes hold a special place in both our hearts. The first home I purchased for myself was the two-story at 3927 West 32nd, which has grown into the Highlands Garden Cafe. I love every inch of Denver’s vintage neighborhoods – many of which I study while jogging around Sloan’s Lake. We have nearly two decades of combined experience in this business. No one knows Denver homes and neighborhoods better than we do!

I believe it takes a true Denver native to understand this city’s rapidly evolving neighborhoods. My family has lived in this great state for five generations – four of them in Denver. I was born at St. Luke’s Hospital and raised in the heart of Northwest Denver. As the saying goes, “I know this city like the back of my hand.” Denver is the place where I have chosen to raise my own daughter. Corey and I make our home here. I’ve lived in the Highlands, Cottage Hill, Wheat Ridge, and Sloan’s Lake, so I know the many facets of our great city. You’re buying more than four walls and a roof when you buy a home. It is vital to learn all you can about your chosen neighborhood; its history and the clues that point toward its future. In addition to my 12 years in this business, I have an artistic background that gives me an edge when it comes to presenting your home for sale in its best possible light. I’ve developed a true talent for staging, the process of improving each room to make it as inviting as possible while showcasing the home’s architectural features. I offer this key service as a companion service to my top quality marketing.

TINA RUPP
William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty
Essex

Beginning a career as a professional photographer in New York City, Tina has photographed celebrity chefs including Giada DeLaurentiis, Rachael Ray and Mario Batali, and for commercial clients such as Martha Stewart Living, Family Circle, This Old House and Bed, Bath & Beyond. What Tina brings to Real Estate is the experience and professionalism of working in a high pressure environment and seeing projects through to the end with ease.

“In both careers, communication is key…Interpreting an art director’s vision can be related to interpreting a buyer’s vision when finding the perfect home. For sellers, staging, preparing and photographing a home to look it’s best is crucial in today’s market. Both careers also demand attention to detail and have many variables to make it all come together – a magazine story or closing a real estate deal.”

Introducing newcomers to Connecticut is fun for Tina, as she discovered first-hand what a wonderful place it is 12 years ago. Without traveling far one finds it all: beach, river, boating, farm to table, great restaurants, art museums, state parks with hiking trails and trains that easily connect you to New York City and Boston.

With her clients needs in mind Tina created three groups on Facebook: “Saybrook and Shoreline Events” which shares and highlights local events to keep the community informed, “Saybrook and Shoreline Business” which promotes local businesses and “The Shoreline Home” where she shares real estate tips and ideas for home improvements and gardening, it is also a great platform to promote her listings.

Having earned bachelor degrees in German and Visual Arts at Rutgers University in New Jersey, her studies led her to live and study in both Constance and Berlin, Germany and to travel widely which is helpful with her international clients.

A supporter of the arts and culture, she and her family are members of the Florence Griswold Museum, Connecticut River Museum and the Yale Peabody Museum. Tina is active in the Old Saybrook school system and a promoter of local businesses and shops. She has volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, where she learned and practiced the art of hanging drywall.

Proven success is that in her first year as an agent, Tina received the “Rookie of the Year Award” from William Pitt Sotheby’s for selling the most units for a new agent “company wide.” She has also earned Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards for sales volume.

ROBERTA “ROBBI” CORREA
Duck Realty, Inc.
Palatka/Putnam County

“It has been said that, at it’s best, preservation engages the past in a conversation with the present over a mutual concern for the future.” – William Murtagh

I always appreciated the unique character of historic buildings even as a child growing up in Providence, Rhode Island. Post college, I rented a circa 1830 barn converted into a residence in northeast Connecticut. I developed a strong interest in historic architecture as well as local history and antiques. Since that time I have rehabbed several historic homes in Connecticut and now in Florida. Palatka has one of the largest collections of existent, historic architecture in Florida. Real estate has given me the opportunity to share my historic home rehabilitation experience and my appreciation for Palatka’s architecture with others.

J.R. AREVALO
JR Sells, Inc.
South Florida

J.R. is a Miami-based Florida Real Estate Broker.  “I’m not a farmer,” he says of the real estate tradition of focusing on a specific area, “I’m a conqueror.”

He goes where the buyers want to, and where the sellers are. Miami-Dade and Broward are his bread and butter, “but I’ve sold as far north as Volusia, as far west as Lee and Collier, and as far south as the Keys. I work the state, I’m not franchised into a region,” he smiles confidently.

That’s the advantage of being the J.R. in J.R. Sells, Inc.—his own brokerage.

Raised in Miami since age 2—studies at Boston University aside, South Florida has always been home.  “I’m not the exception to the rule. Nobody’s born here,” he continues with precision and humor, “Everyone came here fleeing… the cold, prohibition, oppression, communism, state taxes, the law, the past… something. That’s South Floridian history, it’s the South Florida way.”

“I’m a city boy, and not a farmer in any capacity.” smiles the Miamian, circling back.

J.R. grew up in the Brickell financial district, across the river from Downtown. “My elementary school is on the National Register of Historic Places and is the oldest in the county,” he says of Southside Preparatory, located blocks from the Miami Circle archeological site. “and the property next door was discovered to be the original Miami High Schoolhouse,” in recent history. It has since been moved for preservation to Southside Park.

He still has family in the area, “My grandma lives in The Roads; single-family residential Brickell,” where there are plenty of older and historic homes.

“I’ve been enthusiastic about history—South Floridian history, of course—and architecture since I was a small child, because I was surrounded by it.  I’ve seen the city grow my entire life, living history.  I would visit my mother’s office in the McCrory’s building, thinking how beautiful and intricate the white tin ceilings were on the second floor, and how out of place they seemed with all the red paint and orange linoleum. I would later find out that it had been a hotel in the early 1900s, and the third floor which was only used for storage at that point, is where the hotel rooms where located,” he spoke lively, “and of course, the ghost stories.  Old homes, historic places have stories.  They make you feel.  They’re full of surprises and secrets.  My mother later worked at the old courthouse, and I remember how striking and ornate the painted ceilings were.  I suppose I’m always looking up.”

He studied Miami Beach Art Deco in his youth, “it was part of a summer program to keep hyperactive gifted kids out of trouble. I loved all the playful detail; light and bright colors, porthole windows, the creativity and movement hooked me into appreciating architecture.”

He attended the DASH School in the city’s design district before leaving for BU, “My concentration was architecture, and I also took art history and design coursework. Afterward, I lived in Boston, where I fell in love with property conversions.  Living in a brick loft conversion, or a church or schoolhouse conversion is my ultimate dream.”

He’s worked South Florida real estate for almost 10 years. “My favorite transactions include a historically designated 1920s Old Florida home on a small island called Everglades City that I listed, a 1930s home in Miami Shores with Art Nouveau detailing that I listed, and a 1930s wood-framed shot-gun home in Miami where I represented the buyer.”

He’s full of colorful stories, “I’ve gone to a million-dollar walk-through in swim trunks.  I signed a $700k historic home in shorts and sandals. I’m very Floridian, very tropical that way,” he says, “you can have a tremendous work ethic, be brilliant at what you do, and do it in shorts.  I knew that even before the pandemic.”

CHRIS ZOLLER
The Welcome Home Team
Tampa

I grew up in a small town near Cleveland, Ohio. After marrying my high school sweetheart Linda in 2007, we took every penny we had and moved to Tampa. After 23 years living in cold weather, we were ready for year-round sunshine. My passion for real estate began years before I became a realtor. When I step into a vintage home, I think about the history and the stories that come along with it – the families that sat by the fireplace for the holidays, the detail work, and the craftsmanship that went into building each home. Sometimes I have to pinch myself because my job doesn’t feel like a job at all. It’s exhilarating and exciting every day to love what I do and to meet the people I get to meet. When our team lists your home for sale, we do more than just sign a contract. Our team is in the top 1% in Hillsborough county, and with over 30 million sold in real estate, we will do whatever it takes to get the job done.

GEORGIA

MICHELLE SLATER
Keller Williams Realty
Atlanta

I have had a passion for historic homes since the age of 8. Throughout my adult life, I have spent countless hours researching antebellum towns in Georgia. Utilizing my knowledge and passion I helped begin a mission in Roswell, GA to save the area around an antebellum, Greek Revival from being developed. A group of my peers and I were successful in saving Mimosa Hall and Gardens by working with the city of Roswell, GA to purchase the home. Thus began our 501(c)3 non-profit, for which I am currently the presiding treasurer and past secretary. I have attended the 3 day Historic Preservation Trust seminar provided by the Georgia Trust for Preservation, of which I am an active member. I have CE credits in historic preservation and identifying historic styles. In January, I begin course at Georgia state to receive my “Historic Preservationist Certificate.” My favorite past time is riding around old towns, taking down addresses of empty historic properties and then contacting the owners to get them listed. I believe there is someone for every historic home worth saving. Notice the background on my realtor photograph, which was taken in Marietta, GA at my very first listing—an 1838 Federal-turned-Victorian home. I look forward to placing people into historic homes and being featured on one of my favorite sites! Thank you for your consideration!

LINDA BLAKEMORE
Cliff Murse Realty
Savannah

Originally from the Midwest, I spent 30 years of my life in California. I am an entrepreneur and a lover of old houses. I married my high school sweetheart Michael, 36 years ago, who is an award-winning architect. We lived in San Francisco for 6 years and I’ve been in love with old houses every since. Our first house was a 600 square foot cottage in SF. We first visited Savannah in 2016 as a “side trip” while touring colleges on the East Coast for our daughter. It was July and yes it was hot and humid but we were blown away by the beautiful old homes, the heavenly squares, and the Southern Charm. We jumped in to the deep end and purchased a beautiful “Four Square” build in 1919 as our first renovation project. Every day when I walk through our magical city, I have to pinch myself. For an old house lover, living in Savannah is like being a kid in a candy store. I’m completely invigorated and in love with the “hostess city of the South” and I invite you to join me in this magical place by purchasing a historical home. I’m an active member and volunteer with Historic Savannah Foundation and hope to contribute in some small way to their preservation efforts by selling historic homes to other like minded, old house obsessed friends!

LAURA SCHIAVONE
The Schiavone Group – Keller Williams Realty Infinity
Naperville

All my life, I can remember having the same dream….I’m wandering through a big, old home and find some hidden room inside. Fast forward to 2001 and I start to make my dream a reality. I leave the 8-5 corporate world behind to start a new career and become a real estate agent. Twenty years later, I still get excited to work with clients that are seeking out these historic beauties. Four years ago, I finally took the plunge and bought one myself – a gorgeous 1904 Edwardian in the Southwest Suburbs of Chicago. My years of experience in the field have taught me how to help clients not only identify potential pitfalls, but also how to restore or update them appropriately so that they continue to be seen as assets that maintain and grow in value and educate potential buyers so they’re not afraid of them. One cannot simply buy an old home, it’s a lifestyle. It becomes your hobby, your baby, your passion and you, in turn, get the privilege of becoming part of its history.

ANTHONY POSEY
Anthony Posey Properties, Inc.
New Orleans

Anthony Posey comes from a construction and investment background and knows that most deals fall apart because many brokers can not solve problems — something Anthony excels at.

MAINE

VICTORIA CONDON
Dwelling in Maine
Camden

Victoria has been a licensed real estate broker in Maine since 2003. Victoria resides in Rockport with her husband, kids, and their yellow lab Dory.

Real estate brokers are skillful in many aspects of the business but our differences lie in how we conduct ourselves, our passions, and personality. My approach to real estate is low on pressure and precise in presentation. Marketing has always been my sweet spot, and I love the process from vision, to production, and conversion into sales. In turn, I enjoy the education and advocacy involved in helping buyers find a home. It brings me joy to see the instant change in a buyers body language when they discover their perfect home.

Midcoast Maine offers a variety of home settings that range from rural hillsides to serene lakes, and idyllic islands. Traditional, village homes from which you can walk into town are a favorite for many. The area also attracts many who seek a more contemporary lifestyle that is balanced by easy access to nature. Hiking, skiing, climbing, sailing, dining, and a busy community calendar have provided my family with a quality of life that we have not found anywhere else. Maine is our home.

GARY GESTSON
Historic Home Team
Gaithersburg

Gary Gestson is a Certified Historic Maryland Properties Specialist (CHMP) with over $100,000,000 in historic homes, estates & farm sales.

Gary was featured in the July 2009 issue of REALTOR Magazine “OWN YOUR NICHE” celebrating his success in “Niche” marketing historic homes and estates.

He earned a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Art and is an accomplished equestrian. He has lived in the Washington, DC area for over 40 years.

Gary sees enormous similarities between historic homeowners & art devotee’s, both understand and relish the intangible nature of things. Gary believes that… “A historic home’s true value can only be ascertained with specialized marketing that shares its virtues and benefits in a manner that compels a prospective buyer to act. It is that understanding of the unique nature of a historic home that bonds the buyer to it. When asked, most historic home owners will tell you that they fell in love with their homes at first sight. Successful historic home marketing has to facilitate and amplify that experience, while minimal traditional real estate marketing does not even begin to satisfy that need.”

SUZANNE KOLLER
Suzanne & Company
Bedford

Born in Concord and raised in Bedford, Suzanne is a lifelong resident of the area. Inspired by her realtor grandfather, she began showing an interest in real estate at a very young age. Instead of playing house or teacher, she collected one of her father’s discarded briefcases as well as an obsolete “pink rotary telephone” from the 1970’s and would pretend to operate her own real estate business! The dog days of summer were largely consumed with riding her bicycle to nearby open houses and pouring over the local real estate ad books that she would collect during the family’s summer outings.

Suzanne has gone on to be the 2014 Bedford Business Person of the Year! She is also sitting high in the rankings as one of the Top 1% of agents in MA. As a listing agent, she is #1 in Bedford and has been since 2013. She has built a team of highly successful Buyer Agents, who are also claiming the top spots.

She lives in Bedford, MA with her husband and 2 children, June and Wes, plus their beloved German Shorthaired Pointer, Josie Mittens. They currently own an old farmhouse with a couple of even older looking barns that they are slowly and lovingly working towards restoring. Suzanne and Ryan have been investing in real estate since they left UMass. These include a few bank owned investments, a “flip” house in Littleton, and of course the 1848 Greek Revival located at 90 Great Road in Bedford, which has been a labor of love for over 15 years and now prominently serves as the headquarters for Team Suzanne and Co.

Suzanne and Ryan enjoy renovating houses, traveling (Montana is a new favorite), hiking and boating. They enjoy spending their downtime on Cape Cod with family and friends at their small but charming cottage.

MINNESOTA


JENNIFER KIRBY
Kirby Fine Homes
Minneapolis

Since she was a young child, homes have held a special fascination with Jennifer. Growing up in a southern Indiana town renowned internationally for its architecture, her interest in historic homes became a passion. Eventually that led to restoration projects, her largest being an 1893 Queen Anne Victorian. At some point it had been converted to five apartments, but Jennifer and her husband brought it back to its original single family splendor. Since moving to Minnesota, Jennifer has created a special niche in the Twin Cities as a “Historic Home Specialist”. Clients quickly discover that her passion for old homes is a great advantage when it comes to marketing their home. While most agents just see them as another home to sell, Jennifer understands and appreciates the historical significance, architectural detail, and special story that each home possesses. She takes the time to research her historic home listings, digging deep into their pasts by utilizing historical societies, old documents, books, and even finding previous owners for important information. Buyers of old homes love the story behind them, and Jennifer is the perfect “story teller” to share it. Jennifer also takes it a step further by writing her blog Historic Homes of Minnesota. As a photographer, her camera is always at her side as she travels around Minnesota, just in case she comes upon an old church, historic home, or architectural masterpiece. She takes her finds, researches them, and places the stories on the blog. Jennifer is quickly becoming known as the local Storyteller for historic homes and the “go-to agent” for marketing historic real estate in the Twin Cities. She is a member of the Minnesota Historical Society, writes the Ramsey Hill Home Tour Book, and is an Old Home Certified instructor with the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota.

My genuine interest in architecture began in the 1980s while working alongside my father, a master craftsman of period construction and renovations, whose work was featured in Colonial Homes magazine. I quickly developed a trained eye for quality design and superior details in houses. An enduring love of antique homes is reflected in the historic homes I have lived in—an 18th century schoolhouse, a circa 1872 church manse, and a 250+ plus year old stone and brick colonial my husband and I renovated. Representing clients listing or selling historic homes is my passion.

For me it is so much more than being the number one agent in an area. It is about providing clients with the highest level of support while never underestimating the emotional aspect of the business. This must, however, be combined with an intimate knowledge of the real estate market and a thorough understanding of the real estate process – knowing all the ins and outs of a transaction, anticipating and proactively addressing issues that might arise and having a strong list of resources to call on if needed.

NORTH CAROLINA

DAWN WILLIAMS
Fonville Morisey Realty, a Long & Foster Company
Clayton

I have been in awe of historic properties since I was a child and have worked for more than 15 years at a local nonprofit that protects endangered historic properties throughout the state. Coming across so many listings advertising historic properties as “tear-downs” is heartbreaking. Many of those historic homes could be saved, even though it may require a significant investment if the property has been vacant and deteriorating for years. Investing in these wonderful buildings that encompass so much of our past, and typically vastly better building materials than those available today, can be incredibly rewarding.  Plus, it saves those materials from going into our landfills.

Serving the Triangle (Raleigh/Durham and immediate surrounding areas), my goal is to help my clients make their home dreams a reality, whether that be for home sellers, first-time home buyers, buyers looking to buy-up to a larger home, down-size or investors. I strive to keep my clients informed and aware during the entire home purchase and sale process. As searching for and selling a home can be stressful, I also like to bring a sense of humor and laughter into the mix. I’d love to help make your historic home dreams a reality!

ADRIAN BROWN
Inhabit Real Estate, LLC
Durham

My love for real estate was formed when I was a partner in a multi-store home furnishings business and the reason I came to NC. Helping people “make home” was a natural step toward helping people transition to and from their perfect idea of home.

Licensed in 2004, I practiced real estate brokerage until 2009, making a commitment to return after exploring other opportunities including time on staff at the Durham Chamber of Commerce. In 2015 I restarted my real estate career, and in 2017 launched Inhabit Real Estate with my business partner. Inhabit is a boutique firm with a growing team of agents who all have strong local market knowledge, and for whom real estate is a career.

I live in a late 60’s brick cape cod in Durham’s Duke Forest which is slowly undergoing renovations  (it is surrounded by so many amazing mid-century modern homes). I love to vacation in tropical locations and I’m slowly checking off international destinations that I’ve longed to visit. In addition to my work with sellers & buyers in the Triangle, I also represent local buyers actively seeking to purchase a vacation home in the NC’s High Country. I have two miniature schnauzers, and most of my family now live in Durham, which fills me with deep gratitude.

I pursued my interest by getting my real estate license and helping other people discover the beautiful details of an older homes.

I restored my first home in 1996 and since then have remodeled, restored, and preserved eight homes in High Point. Along with this, I have assited many buyers with remodeling their old home purchases and shared contacts for work needed. With my many years in the business I have a vast list of trades and craftsmen needed for an old home remodel. In 2010, I received the Gertrude S. Carraway award of merit from the Historic Preservation Foundation of North Carolina for the Briles House project on N. Main Street in High Point.

Through my experience of remodeling and selling older homes, I know the things to look out for and the special guidance buyers and sellers need when buying or selling an older home. An older home is in a different category and requires an experienced agent to give it the attention needed. I love helping clients buy or sell their piece of the past and keeping it alive for generations to come!

LYRIN MURPHY
Old House Real Estate Group/PDX Property Group
Portland

I started my career in finance and banking, but was always working on old houses. I loved everything about them and they’ve been my passion since I was 6 years old when I found a giant set of old keys in the attic of a 100 year old house my family had just moved into. I took a leap of faith and started buying old houses out of auction or through estates, restoring them and selling them to my clients. We were restoring them, not flipping them and we loved every part of the process. I realized through this process, that sometimes old houses require a different conversation, different marketing and different resources. People love the idea of an old house, but taking one on can be daunting. Preparing an old house for sale, dealing with repairs, staging, creatively marketing, pricing and negotiating can be as equally challenging. Through my extensive experience with old houses and the people who love them, I’ve developed a vast network of resources, subject matter experts and skilled craftspeople to help my buyers and sellers navigate this exciting process.

HOLLY HAMILTON
Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty
Charleston

Holly Hamilton was born and raised in Rocky Mount, North Carolina to an entrepreneurial family. She grew up discussing business around the dinner table and started several successful companies in her teens and early twenties. While attending North Carolina Wesleyan College, Holly began a botanical import business selling exotic orchids sourced in Hawaii. Later in college, she developed and ran a successful drapery business. Holly’s education continued after Wesleyan, when she enrolled in Regent University School of Law, and gained her Juris Doctorate, as well as an L.L.M. in International Law and Taxation. She is currently admitted to both the Virginia and North Carolina Bars.

Holly’s legal training couples perfectly with her luxury real estate career, as she is able to advocate for her clients from a legal and international perspective. No stranger to international travel, Holly has lived in Romania, Strasbourg, and has frequented the African continent for business, as well as traveling extensively in the U.S.

She knew Charleston was the place to call home after she met her husband, Heyward Hamilton, a 12th generation Charlestonian and philanthropist. The two settled into a beautiful home on the lower peninsula, otherwise known as “South of Broad,” and where she fosters a flock of wild Guinea Fowl in her garden.

Holly is an active member of St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, the Junior League, and has served on numerous boards, including The Harbor Club of Charleston.

Her professional history is too long to mention here, but Holly’s most impressive asset is her true passion for our area.

MATTHEW SWAIN
Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty
Charleston

Born and raised on the South Carolina coast, Matthew Swain and his family have deep connections to the Lowcountry. When he was young, Matthew spent many summers working at his family’s company learning from his parents’ entrepreneurial mindset and successful operation. He witnessed firsthand how the client experience is central to any successful endeavor in business. Matthew studied Business at the College of Charleston before an exciting opportunity in New York City led him to make a bold move to the Big Apple.

For the next fifteen years, Matthew was the Managing Director for two well known, international luxury fashion companies. This experience helped Matthew develop a sophisticated taste-level that could be trusted by the most astute clientele. During his tenure he was offered a position back in Charleston allowing him to spend the next eight years of his career here. At that point, he decided to plant his roots and invest in his first home west-of-the-Ashley.

His initial buying experience peaked his interest in the real estate industry, and a few years later, after careful consideration, Matthew chose to make another bold move and pursue a career in real estate.

Matthew has traveled extensively throughout Europe for both personal and professional interests and even lived in the Netherlands for a year. Those journeys have expanded his appreciation for fine architecture, culture, and history, and these experiences have influenced his professional development both in the real estate industry and beyond.

Matthew’s specialty is delivering an elevated client experience, and in that regard, he is a perfect fit for the powerful Sotheby’s International Realty Brand. From his childhood experiences in business, to his successful careers in the luxury sector, Matthew has displayed a very strong work ethic, sense of loyalty, and a sophisticated entrepreneurial mindset. His current and past clients directly benefit from these traits and understand the value that Matthew brings as an advocate.

SANDY GAMMON
Keller Williams West Knoxville
Knoxville

Hello and welcome to my passion of historic and vintage homes! My education and experience in historic homes, have given me the knowledge and training necessary to handle one of the most delicate of real estate transactions – buying or selling a historic home. During almost three decades as a Paralegal, I came to deeply understand the necessity of contracts and other legal documents crucial in listing or purchasing a home. I ventured back into education later and obtained a B.S. in Historic Preservation and Urban Planning, graduating Cum Laude. Following graduation, I became Director of Ramsey House, a 1797 historic home in Knoxville TN, for three years. My experience, coupled with my education, led me totally and unexpectedly into the field of Real Estate and to being the award-winning Realtor I am today. Helping people achieve their goals is sometimes a challenge and a blessing, but I was given the gift of being a problem-solver and, together, we will make it happen! Historic homes have been my passion since my youth, and helping my clients achieve their goals is one of my greatest joys!

UTAH

RHETT ALLEN
Big Utah Homes | RealtyPath South Valley
Riverton

Rhett Allen grew up both in the San Francisco Bay Peninsula and Salt Lake County, and definitely surrounded himself with many diverse cultures. After moving to Utah he had the privilege of watching the diversity grow in this state. This state is well-rounded and full of great potential in so many ways, the economy continues to stay strong and is truly a great environment for all walks of life.

After being involved in real estate and marketing one way or another for over 20 years, Rhett began to notice a trend by some of the other high volume real estate top producers, lead generators, and other agents that have been lacking! Lacking in compassion and sincerity of putting a clients needs first based before the simple ease of technology today, the lack of a true human touch we like to say. Call it a lack of training, standards, or morals, he knew that he couldn’t do anything about what they were doing currently but could change the way clients and others perceived what is expected of a Realtor and definitely one with heart one client at a time.

Richmond

Experience has shown that above all else, the best agents are those that effectively educate and advocate for their clients. Helping my clients to navigate through seemingly endless information and countless options so that they can confidently make the best decisions possible is the focus of my work. In the end, having the ability to efficiently process data while also identifying the trends and forces driving the market is the key to having successful and low-stress transactions.

Having chosen Richmond as my home over 16 years ago, I truly love this city for it’s unique character, charm, architecture and amazing history. As a fan of all things “RVA”, it has been important to me to have a role in helping to protect and improve the fabric of my city. Being an active part of local community groups allows me to stay up to the minute with the pulse of current and future developments that are shaping Richmond’s future.

Added to my years of Real Estate experience is a strong background in the historic renovation / restoration fields along with schooling in engineering that have given me a unique vision of the potential and an in-depth understanding of the unique challenges some properties may present.

WASHINGTON, DC

CHRISTINE BASSO FITZGERALD
TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

“I have always had an innate curiosity for the details of Washington DC as a well-designed city, particularly the history of real estate design and development. That curiosity still energizes my work in representing my clients. I put myself in their life situation and work for their objectives. This philosophy gives me a deep sense of pride in trying to be of maximum service to my buyers and sellers; clients who often become enduring friends”. -Christine

Realtor representation is about so much more than showing homes and writing contracts. It is a process that involves so many questions and has a domino-effect on daily life. “Can I remove this wall? If I sell my house now, how fast will I have to move out? How can I get my place ready without ruining my marriage?”

For two decades, I have invested myself in finding solutions and answers (good ones, specifically) to these questions. I ensure that every step of the transaction is organized, transparent and that we are utilizing vetted lenders and vendors to accomplish the process seamlessly. I consider my own home my best investment and took every step to ensure that it fit my lifestyle needs and that it would be a good investment over time; I do the same for my buyers and sellers with painstaking detail and prompt response.

At TTR Sotheby’s, I have been awarded Outstanding Sales Achievement Award for sales volume multiple times. I have repeat clients come back again and again as well as referral clients from past transactions.

On a personal note – because that’s what real estate is all about – I live in Georgetown, with my family; John (old), Madeleine (18), Oliver (3) and Brando (16 – the Shi Tzu with 9 lives). I am an involved daughter, a grateful mother, and a patient wife (John would agree, most of the time). I have 25-year friendships with classmates from Georgetown Visitation. I love to laugh. I thrive underwater (lifetime long distance swimmer). I enjoy oil painting and obsessively look at interior design photos. I am an avid reader, 37 books for 2020. I detest clutter and am often donating things my family members do not approve of. I want to succeed at helping the people around me; this drive becomes a great asset to my clients. I am optimistic (except when I am pessimistic), I have a strong work ethic from my father and an intuitive sense about other’s feelings. I have strong confidence in my ability to help my clients and that confidence will be evident when you meet me.

WEST VIRGINIA

LIZ MCDONALD
Dandridge Realty Group
Charles Town

I started my career in real estate as a Property Manager, managing single-family homes and investing in rental houses, but quickly realized that helping people buy and sell their home in a smart, strategic way is my calling. My team began developing a marketing program for buyers coming from the D.C. area and beyond to purchase more for their money in a more rural area of Virginia and West Virginia. Over the years, we found that our expertise in attracting buyers from metro areas was extremely useful to our seller clients, too. In 2003, when I moved from New York City/Washington D.C. to Charles Town, WV, I was lured by the beauty of the area, the community spirit and welcoming people I encountered, and by the fact that I could afford an actual house rather than a tiny hole in the wall! (Fast forward to the present and I still own that house as a rental and haven’t left this fabulous area!) Many buyers and sellers in the area are like me. They are moving from a more urban area and demand a negotiation plan, whether buying or selling, and a tactical marketing of their property. I enjoy working with sellers who want to get top dollar for their property through our strategic marketing and good old-fashioned elbow grease.
