Any Additional Information About Yourself You’d Like to Share:

Just over 20 years ago, I started my career in commercial real estate with Focus Real Estate Advisors, a firm affiliated with the Stabile Companies of Nashua, NH.  Since then, I have brokered, advised on or appraised all forms of real estate from office, industrial and retail properties to single-family homes and multi-family investments.  During the early 2000’s, I worked as a commercial real estate appraiser, earning my Certified General Appraiser’s license while affiliated with Thompson Appraisal Company of Concord, NH; R.G. Bramley & Associates of Nashua, NH; and Atlantic Valuation Consultants of Meredith, NH.


For many years, I was active as treasurer of the Plan New Hampshire board; recently, I rejoined the board after a 10-year absence.  For 15 years I served on the Concord Heritage Commission, 10 of those as vice chair and head of the Demolition Review Committee, and for many years sat on the Design Review Committee of the Concord Planning Board.


Until recently, I served as Vice President of the Board of NEREN (New England Real Estate Network), the regional MLS serving New Hampshire and Vermont; and also on the Board for the Capital Region Board of Realtors, representing the Board as Shareholder rep to NEREN.  My wife, Jennifer Goodman, and I live in Concord with our two daughters, Alice, who is a junior at Concord High School and Kate, who is a sophomore at Bates College.
