If you are thinking of selling your home, part of what sets me apart are my communications skills, which I do honestly and in a very timely and effective manner. I strive to establish close relationships with clients, building a foundation of trust over the course of working together toward a mutual objective...the successful conclusion in their real estate objectives. Additionally, I'm a great listener. I pay attention to what clients are saying, which is critical in interpreting client needs and wants. It's all part of the communications process. I also specialize in relocation, especially with families who are moving either to the suburbs for the first time, relocating from another state or, in many instances, another country. I take pride in being on time with deadlines, and making sound decisions even under the most stressful situations.


  • BA in Business Administration - Salem State University
  • Associate's Degree in Tourism and Hotel Management - Istanbul University

Professional Association

  • The Greater Boston Association of REALTORS


I moved to the Boston area from Turkey many years ago. I studied Business at Salem State University and proceeded to work in a fast, upscale environment as a Business Analyst. I performed extensive analysis of market conditions across the country to determine potential clients, contact and coordinate with clients and build the company's customer base. Passionate about customer service, the move to Real Estate was a natural fit for me. I love to travel and have traveled to many parts of the world; this helps me understand the needs of a diverse clientele. I enjoy competitive sports and have coached boys' soccer teams in Newton. Photography is my passion and I enjoyed designing the yearbook of a local Newton public elementary school.

Professional Specialty

As a technologically savvy realtor, I am very experienced in internet marketing. This is extremely critical in today's real estate market as more than 90% of buyers start their home search on line. Additionally, a majority of sellers also search on line for those realtors that offer these skills to represent them in the selling of their homes. Whether buying or selling, not having an experienced realtor with in-depth knowledge in all aspects of internet marketing, and who understands all the nuances of marketing in its many forms, you may find yourself at a disadvantage.
