From its thriving arts scene to its prestigious colleges and eclectic restaurants, the Northampton, MA area provides all the benefits of big city life in a small, diverse community. With so much to see and do, it’s no wonder why so many students from The Five Colleges return to the area to begin their lives after graduation.

LGBT Friendly
Every day I introduce gay couples to the Pioneer Valley from as far away as California, New York City and other big cities across the country.


They have done their research and know that they can finally live in a community that is accepting and welcoming of the LGBT community. In fact, more and more parents are relocating to the area, knowing their children will attend school with many other children who have two moms or two dads.

As an Accredited and Certified Buyer’s Agent, I’ll be happy to introduce you to this special community and will work hard to assist you in your search for the perfect home.

With so many places to run off leash and meet fellow canines, it’s a dog’s life in the Pioneer Valley.

From dog parks to rivers and hiking trails, there is never a dull moment for dogs or their adventurous humans. The Northampton dog park features miles of wide, easy trails for your morning run, or if you prefer a view of the water, there’s the Mill River, Look Park and numerous conservation areas.

Those with little time to spare will also find numerous options for doggy daycare facilities and enthusiastic dog walkers – especially among the large population of college students looking for part-time work.
