Philosophy

I enjoy working with buyers and sellers to “Achieve Success Together.” To me, this means helping clients navigate through a challenging market, while actively listening and keeping the lines of communication open. I have always enjoyed being part of a service-oriented business. Further, my appraising background helps me accurately estimate value and analyze market trends, a valuable tool for clients whether buying or selling. These skills set me apart from the competition, as well as scrupulous attention to detail, customer service and keeping in touch. I equally enjoy working with buyers and sellers, no matter how large or small the transaction.  While I have marketed all kinds of properties, I find myself most often representing homes in Portsmouth’s South End, and unique luxury properties on both sides of the Piscataqua.

Experience & Education

Licensed for more than 52 years and a consistent top producer, I joined Tate and Foss in 1992, going on to represent significant properties in Maine and New Hampshire. I am a former Realtor of the Year, president of both the New Hampshire Association of Realtors and Seacoast Board of Realtors, and currently serving as the board’s Chief Statistician. I am an oft-quoted spokesperson for the Board. You can hear my podcast Seacoast Realtalk wherever most podcasts are found. A former guidance counselor and military officer, I have developed excellent listening, organizational and time management skills. After 33 years of service, I retired with the rank of Lt. Colonel in 2003 from the U.S. Army Reserves and the New Hampshire Air National Guard. I am a graduate of St. Paul’s School, Trinity College (BA-History) and UNH (M.Ed., Counselor Education).

 

Community & Personality

I have lived in Portsmouth since the1970’s. My first apartment was on Ceres Street, right across from the tugboats! My son Thomas is married and lives in Shelburne, Nova Scotia. I have a handsome grandson—Wyatt John Rice. Back home, I am “dad” to a husky-lab mix rescue pup, Tuck. Over the years, I climbed all of New Hampshire’s 48, 4,000-foot mountains with two other great Rice dogs. The Seacoast is beautiful and vibrant. I belong to Rotary, where I edit the Rotary Log. I am Vice President of Portsmouth Pro Musica. A proprietor of the Portsmouth Athenaeum, I served Portsmouth as Historic District Commission chair and Planning Board vice-chair. Outside of the city, I formerly served on the Alumni Association Executive Committee of St. Paul’s School. I have just been appointed as a trustee of the Rosamond Thaxter Foundation. I am a member of the UNH Wildcat Club and major contributor to the hockey and football programs. I am a dedicated season ticket holder at the Ogunquit Playhouse.
