I’m a Realtor in Northampton with a special niche practice. I specialize in houses near unused, former railroads that have been converted into bicycle and walking trails—rail trails. I also specialize in antique or historic properties and places near to conservation lands. All together the niche represents about 50% of my business and I am in the top 1% of realtors in the area.
I’m also the author of five books, while four have been written that feature me in them as a case-study in creative marketing in the 21st century. Along with my wife Kathleen, we also operate SUGAR MAPLE TRAILSIDE INN, a bed & breakfast located in a nicely restored, 1865 farmhouse in Northampton’s historic village of Florence. This is located 8 feet from New England's oldest municipally built rail trail.
