A newbie in the real estate world, Maggie spent the early part of her professional life at the Community College of Rhode Island as an academic advisor and adjunct faculty member for the psychology department. She enjoyed working with people in that capacity tremendously, and was always honored to be trusted by students to participate in their education. One of the most interesting parts of establishing herself in this business is to see how those trusting relationships are just as valuable in real estate. She’s excited to continue to learn and grow in this new field. Maggie’s natural inclination for order and organization lends itself nicely to file management, and her education background is useful as we roll out ongoing professional development for our agents.
The Good Stuff
Maggie is a lifelong resident of South County, and currently lives in Richmond with her husband, CJ, and two girls, Joey and Mara. Her family frequents all the area’s playgrounds, ice cream places, and libraries! Their current favorite is Ninigret Park—bike path, playground and clean bathrooms for the win!
But really…what’s it like to be a part of the Lighthouse team?
You know, every day I’m at work, I learn something, and I laugh. I started out my career working in higher education, and I never imagined that I’d do anything else. But after I had my girls, I felt like a different person, with different priorities. I knew leaving the college was the best decision for my family, but I worried that I’d be lost. Working in real estate is an experience that I never thought I’d have, but if I’m laughing and learning at work, it makes me feel like I’m in the right place.
Best local food/drink?
Hands down, Spain of Narragansett. I had my wedding reception there, it’s just my most favorite place. We could go right now! A little sangria, some calamari, that shrimp they do with the tomatoes and peppers and onions. Oh dear. Yes. Let’s go. Maybe we’ll run into Mike Rocchio there!
What local tradition do you love the most?
I love the Monsignor Clarke School Christmas bazaar!! I went to school there as a kid, and for as long as I can remember, that bazaar (or festival? I think they might call it a festival now) has felt like the kick off to the Christmas season. It has grown and changed over the years, but there’s something very familiar and comforting and Christmas-y about showing up to do a little shopping and bumping into the same people that I’ve bumped into there since I was seven.
