I was born in London, moved to Marblehead in 1993 and to Naples in 2017.
My earlier career was in investment banking where I managed offices in London, Singapore, and Boston. I worked both as a research analyst and an investment banker, specializing in capital raising.
I received my B.A. and M.A. from Oxford University and in 2021 completed by M.B.A. from the European Business School of Barcelona.
After 9/11 (I was in the World Trade Center in 1993 when the bomb went off and also the night before 9/11 in which 67 members of my company died) I decided to retire and focus on my work as President of Lifebridge, where our plans for ending homelessness were hailed as “a model for the nation.”
In 2014 I was appointed a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (M.B.E.) for “services to homelessness in the United States”, and received the award from H.M. The Queen at Buckingham Palace.
Through my blogs, www.OliverReportsMA.com and www.OliverReportsFL.com, I am known for producing the most comprehensive and informed statistics and commentary on the real estate market, property taxes, mortgage rates and anything else that influences real estate decisions. Before starting OliverReports.com in 2012, I wrote 8 semi-annual reviews of the local property market for the Marblehead Reporter.
I love to help people achieve their dreams, whether in education, in life – or in real estate. I love real estate and have bought and sold all types of property: condos, commercial property, and single-family homes, from starter to oceanfront.
I am a firm believer in the team concept, believing that a group of people working together can achieve more than they would on their own. In real estate that means being in a position to offer a much better service to clients and I am delighted to be part of the Feins Group at Compass
