- Previews Property Specialist
My overall approach is simple and can be defined by three key fundamentals: hard work; honesty; and being sensitive to the individual needs of my clients. Abiding by these three main principles delivers results. While properties can be similar, no two are alike. Therefore, each client is unique yet each client will be treated with the same professionalism without discrimination. Whether it is home buying or selling, both can be an emotional process but at the end of the day, it is an investment. I strive to provide you with maximum revenue and best value. I place honesty and integrity above all and I strive to maintain the highest standards of professional excellence.
I have been self-employed for over 37 years. Prior to my career in real-estate, I lived in New York City where I held a career in the fashion industry. Shortly after moving to Plainfield, New Jersey in 1998, I opened a home accessory store in Westfield where I was able to pursue my passion for interior decorating. My eclectic professional background allows me to bring a unique skill set to real-estate; helping my clients to visualize how a home can work for them and their needs. Conversely, when it comes time to sell, I can help stage a home to showcase its best features.

I am originally from central Pennsylvania. After high school, I moved to New York City where I resided for 25 years. In 1997 I moved to New Jersey, where I am proud to call home. I love the historic architecture and design of the homes in the area. On my spare time, I enjoy renovating and decorating my 14-room, circa 1910 house in Plainfield. I have gained an appreciation for the history and culture that defines real estate today. Some of my favorite hobbies include entertaining, cooking, decorating and landscaping. I am married to James Galvin who is a licensed civil engineer. He enjoys woodworking and builds reproduction antique furniture as a hobby. Together, we enjoy traveling throughout New England, antique shopping and sightseeing. We also enjoy spoiling our Springer Spaniel, Bandit.
