Meet Your Team
our family helping your family
As a family business, we understand how important a home is to creating the foundation for a happy family. Whether you are laying the foundations for your future family or you’ve already got five mouths to feed, we believe finding and creating a home that supports your lifestyle and goals is the most important step toward the life of your dreams.
The Whitney Story
Growing up, our Dad was a builder, and every weekend the three of us would pile into the front his big green truck to the visit the different homes he was constructing. While Madeline became fascinated with the secret rooms and the lives of the people who were building them, Nicole became obsessed with how she would design the empty home - what color she would paint the walls and how she would lay out the furniture.
Our Mom was the perfect complement – a molecular biologist by day and an art student by night. We didn’t know it at the time, but her insistence on exposing us to the beauty and importance of art was foundational in shaping our taste for design. We also definitely inherited her passion for hosting. To this day, whenever we have quests over, she lights candles, cooks with fresh ingredients, and prepares beautiful, hand-made tablescapes using plants and flowers from the garden.
Little did we know, those weekend home visits and artistic immersion throughout our childhood would become the spark to our passions for helping other families sell, buy, and design the homes they’ve always dreamed of.
What we love
Aside from real estate and design, we live for celebration! We are true believers in celebrating and appreciating all the little things in life (who doesn't love an excuse to throw a party or toast a glass of Pinot?). But the most magical thing about what we do is being a little part of those milestone moments with our clients. Whether it's your your first home, your fourth home, or just refreshing your bedroom - we live to help you celebrate in a way that perfectly reflects who you are.
