Estate Homes, Single Family Homes, Condos, Waterfront, Water View, Golf Communities, Investments

Welcome to lovely Chatham By The Sea! Let me help you find just the home for you in Chatham, Harwich, Brewster or Orleans. Whether you are looking for a seaside cottage, waterfront, water view, investment property, condo, an estate home or a golf community…I will help you locate the perfect place!

When dealing with people, I want to treat them just as I would want to be treated myself.

Are you a BUYER? Know that I will do my utmost to find you just the type of home you are looking for at the price you can afford. I will negotiate strongly on your behalf and be with you through every step of the selling process from the Offer to Purchase, obtaining of a mortgage, home inspection, signing of the Purchase and Sales Agreement and the Closing...and beyond. I pride myself in always being available for my clients and will deal with any questions you may have.

Are you a SELLER? I will do all I can to sell your house for the price you want, starting with a Comparative Market Analysis to determine a realistic price. Then I will hold open houses and advertise it extensively. When an Offer to Purchase comes, I will advise you and help you negotiate for the best possible price. Working with you through the Purchase and Sale Agreement to the Closing, I will be there to help with any of your concerns.

A special achievement  has been being named the top producer at the Chatham office for 2008.  Being a member of the Top Producer's Club, the Chairman's Club and the President's Club are a testament to my dedication  in helping my clients.  As of December, 2009 I not only have certification as an Accredited Buyer's Representative but also hold the RSPS designation which is a Resort and Second Home Property Specialist.  Recently I became certified as a Senior Real Estate specialist too (SRES).  This will be extremely helpful to my clients, the majority of whom come from "over the bridge" looking for that special home for vacationing and retirement in our lovely area on the "elbow" of the Cape!

I have been a year-round resident of Chatham since 1986, and am proud to be a member of one of the Cape's oldest families (albeit by marriage). After graduating from Abington Friends School, I received a degree in Education from Bucknell University and later an M.S. in Counseling from West Chester State University. While in the Philadelphia area, I taught at Temple University. Community involvement has always been important to me and I have served as Secretary and Scholarship Chairman of the Chatham Historical Society and Chairman of St. Christopher's Home and Garden Tour. A special interest is golf, and being on the Board of Governors, Golf Committee and Ladies' Golf Chairman at Eastward Ho! have been an important part of my life.

For information on nearly 50 Cape Cod Golf Courses personally compiled by me, visit Evelyn's Cape Cod Golfer's Page.

When not busy with my responsibilities at the Raveis Real Estate Company, my interests are vintage cars, antiques and golf. With my ten years of experience on St. Christopher's Home and Garden Tour as well as my interest in decorating and gardening, I am very familiar with many of the houses in Chatham and I know I can help my customers find that special home for which they are searching. I am ABR certified and have my Broker's license, both of which make me especially qualified to help you with your real estate needs.  I have just obtained a new certification as a Resort and Second Home Property Specialist  (RSPS) to further help you with your quest! 

You know how important it is to have a Realtor who you can trust and who really knows the area. I will do my very best for you and help you find that home of your dreams! Thanks for visiting my website...please bookmark it and come back for more information on the latest property updates.

Evelyn worked with us for almost 2 years and showed us a lot of houses. She always made time for us and planned well thought out tours of houses that matched our interests. I felt that her advice was honest and valuable. We finally found a house and we are very happy with our choice.

Evelyn listens well. She picked up quickly on our likes and dislikes and consistently found houses that intrigued us and were within our reach. In the end she helped us get a great deal on a lovely home that had even had a view of the water.

I cannot express to you how much you have helped us and been such a resource of information and support, Evelyn. Thank you for all you have done and we do hope to see you before you leave for Florida!


Art and I cannot find the words to express the appreciation and gratitude we feel toward you for all of your expertise and support throughout our home buying experience.  You have remained the strongest source for all of the requirements necessary to buy a house long distance with ease and confidence.  Your counsel, good taste, encouragement and patience guided us every step of the way.  Without you, we are certain we would not have found our darling piece of Cape Cod.                      

Evelyn was there 110% for me. Buying my first home felt daunting yet Evelyn was very supportive and offered her unending enthusiasm, guidance,patience and energy. I am now enjoying the home of my dreams!

Evelyn was very helpful in our search for a house on the Cape.  We really took our time and she never made us feel rushed or foolish for looking and looking.  We eventually found a house and have had a wonderful time fixing it up and just being on the Cape.  She was also very helpful with providing us names to call for plumbing, tiling, painting, etc.  I found that so helpful because it is much nicer to work with someone that has been recommended rather than finding someone in the phone book.  She also took the time to visit us after we closed on the house.  I still feel comfortable calling her for advice or help.
