I am a Portland native ~ born and raised. After earning a degree from McGill University in Montreal, I returned home to begin pursuing my interest in real estate. Eight years later, and with lots of experience to build from, I still find real estate as exciting and as rewarding as my first day in the profession. I continue to work towards growing my education and involvement in the Realtor organization and currently serve as a member of the Board of Directors for the Greater Portland Board of Realtors, as well as serving on three other board committees. I have earned the highest level of brokerage license available in Maine and continue to educate myself on the ever expanding business of real estate and real estate technology to better serve my clients. Some of my unique specialties in brokerage include the Portland market (with a focus on Peninsula properties--single family, multi or condo) and real estate development, including condo conversions, renovations, design and new construction. I currently live in downtown Portland with my husband, Ben, and our dog, Hinckley. We are also looking forward to the arrival of our first baby in the spring of 2013!
What do you love most about real estate?
“ As a third generation broker, my education and passion for real estate began at a young age. I remember Sunday drives with my Dad where he would pay me fifty cents for every street name I could remember, telling me that 'knowing my market' was most important. Summers were spent alongside my parents at what they referred to as 'Apartment Camp', which consisted of painting, cleaning the family's apartments to get ready for the next renter. My experience has given me a huge sense of pride in home ownership, shown me the value of being educated on the market, and of course, the value of good, old-fashioned elbow grease! ”

"We have known Ali since 2008 when we started looking for a condo in Portland. When the building we were interested in never came to fruition, Ali worked with us (from our current city which is 2,000 miles away fromPortland) over the next two years until she found us the perfect place. Ali never gave up until we were completely happy. She went far beyond what any real estate agent should be expected to do both before, during and after the sale. We would recommend Ali without any reservations, as her work ethic, business sense and desire to please her clients are exemplary."
"Ali showed me about 20 houses before we found what I was looking for, and I never felt pressured. Her patience and knowledge were reassuring. i continue to refer Ali to anyone i know looking to purchase a property."
"Ali helped us get down to the bottom of the the transaction. In addition, she kept the deal alive during the common back and forth involved in negotiations. Simply put, the deal would not have happened if we had used another broker."
We'll be in touch soon!
