NFRES: As one of the more seasoned real estate agents on the North Fork, what is it that sets you apart from the others? JM: Perhaps it’s my background in the arts and history, and  I hold an MFA in Textile Design and Textile History. I had a Fulbright to study traditional weaving in the Andes. I taught at the university level and worked for years as textile conservator at the Metropolitan Museum.  So I have a passion for conservation and preservation, traditional architecture and beautiful spaces and landscapes.

Q: As one of the more seasoned real estate agents on the North Fork,what is it that sets you apart from the others? A: Most of the buyers I work with are looking for second homes, and I understand that journey well because it’s the path I took.  I bought my house here over 25 years ago and for a long time it was a weekend place, while I worked in the city.  I know that feeling of respite the North Fork provides, that “exhale” when you get out here after a busy week in the city.

  How would you describe your selling style? A client once thanked me for my polite persistence. I think that best describes the approach to my selling style. I try to give my clients and customers the space they need to make the right decisions while helping them navigate through the sometimes daunting buying and selling process. I also strive to keep the process as stress free as possible and work together with everyone involved towards a successful sale.

What is the most challenging aspect of being a real estate agent? I have been fortunate to successfully hone a happy medium over these many years in the business, to marry as best as possible the very critical real estate goals of the seller, to the excited wish list of the buyers. The challenge before this takes place is gaining the consumer’s trust that you are highly knowledgeable and professional, you sincerely care about them fulfilling their dreams, that you are service oriented, and have all the skills to bring a transaction through its various trials, from the first offer to the closing table months later.
