Complementing Robin’s significant market and negotiation expertise, her background in design and marketing enhances her ability to offer effective real estate marketing and consulting services. Robin studied design and marketing at Parsons School of Design, worked in the luxury retail industry with Saks Fifth Avenue, and later earned an MBA in management, marketing, and entrepreneurship from the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin. With a lifelong interest in architecture and residential design, Robin has enjoyed project managing multiple home renovations for herself and her family: a 1940s bungalow in Austin, a c.1900 former bowling alley on Orient Harbor in New York, two historic Cambridge condos, and an 1871 Mansard Victorian in Union Square, Somerville.

As a Co-founder and Principal of The Team, Robin is passionate about elevating the standard of practice in real estate through agent mentorship and training. Robin serves as a vital resource for other agents, guiding them through the nuanced complexities of the local market and fostering the client-centric approach that has been the hallmark of her own career.

After spending years in Cambridge, Robin and her wife, Lisa, now reside in Somerville’s historic Prospect Hill, where they share their home with hound mix Freddie and British shorthair cat Birdie. They enjoy spending time in Newport, where their 19th century worker’s cottage is a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of the Boston area. Robin is the Vice Chair of Somerville’s Historic Preservation Commission and the past Chair of the Professional Standards Committee of the Greater Boston Association of Realtors (GBAR).
