“Life is what you make of it!” agree Judy and Bob Holder, New England natives who returned to the area in 1997 – following their separate careers in Chicago – to enjoy the magnificent landscape and active lifestyles they’d grown up with. “Home was calling us back,” remembers Judy, “and we couldn’t think of a better way to share our passion for Southern New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts than combining our talents and forming a real estate team.”
As a young man, Bob’s first job was as a dishwasher in a restaurant. “It taught me the importance of listening – really listening – when someone speaks, whether you’re earning minimum wage or managing a company,” reflects the former corporate executive. Judy landed her first job as a sales clerk, where she learned how much people truly appreciate great customer service. Today, this knowledgeable team epitomizes integrity, hard work, creativity, and steadfast attention to detail. They’ve established exceptional working relationships with specialists who perform all the tasks their clients require – financiers, mortgage brokers, home inspectors, and title companies included. Bob is analytical – a real number-cruncher – while Judy is the more creative of the two. Together, they’ve helped everyone from first-time buyers to empty nesters maximize their real estate goals.
Bob and Judy share a close-knit family and love spending time with their four children, their spouses, and seven grandchildren – whom they cherish. Natural-born nature lovers, the couple relish a walk on the beach, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and kayaking. Separately, Judy is an avid seamstress, artist and an accomplished vocalist, and Bob enjoys sports – especially fishing. As their way of giving back to the area they adore, volunteering is an integral part of their lives.
