Lowell is a unique city. It’s rough around the edges yet has a lot to recognize and appreciate. For starters, the history. Lowell was one of the first industrialized cities in America. Between the mills, the canals, the trollies, and the cobblestone roads in downtown, there’s a lot that gets over looked around here. The city had an enormous boom of immigrants in the early 1900’s. Mills & homes were being developed, people came here to achieve the “American dream”. During the great depression, things started going downhill. Mill workers had a steady decrease in pay and were treated inhumanely and mid-century Lowell started to become less and less populated. Mills, houses, and building were left abandoned for years. Around the 1970’s developers started investing in these mills and buildings, and what is now the University of Lowell started to show face. After the Korean War and Vietnam wars, Lowell saw an influx of Southeast Asian refugees. It’s easier to appreciate what we are now by understanding where we have been. Now Lowell is home to one of America’s prestigious higher education complexes, UMASS Lowell. I see this expansion helping Lowell in positive ways by increasing economy, recognition and diverse population.

My passion for real estate comes from my passion for helping people and my life goal of providing value to those around me. I love that real estate involves homes. Places that people hold so many memories and good feelings. There no better sense than a sense of home and I want to give as many people the sense of home as possible. This involves turning old homes into new, helping people out of difficult situations causing their home to be a burden, and finding people new homes.
Thanks for reading. Namaste.
