It might seem odd that somebody like me, with a background in Pediatric Oncology and Cancer Research chose to pursue a career in Real Estate. In truth, it is not: I love people, I love helping them, working with them and we all know that few things are as stressful as buying or selling one’s home.
When I moved from Italy (Sicily, to be precise) I had no idea that I could find happiness and fulfillment selling real estate. It is all about the relationships that are created when two or more people work together, as a team, toward the same goal.
I believe that the most important thing is to be able to listen and understand your clients’ needs, and then use all the tools at your disposal to make sure their goals and dreams are achieved. This is my pledge to you: I will always strive to do not only the best I can, but the best that can be done, with honesty and integrity, and with passion and enthusiasm, without which nothing of importance can be accomplished.
I found a new way to help people by assisting them through one of the major causes of stress in their life. As a REALTOR with Keller Williams International I have the opportunity to share my vast network of connections, both locally and internationally, with my clients and guide them through the exciting yet complicated process of selling or buying a house.

ROOTED IN COMMUNITY
Born and raised in Italy, I studied to become a pediatric oncologist. Eighteen years ago, I moved to New York, then to California. and finally I found my home in Falmouth. I still remember the very first time I came here. I loved everything about Cape Cod: the land, the trees, the ocean, the people. I quickly became deeply involved in our community, volunteering in the public schools, serving on several boards, joining the local Chambers of Commerce and other networking groups. Assisting my clients through the difficult process of selling their home has given me a sense of purpose that I cherish every day.
"Serena was WONDERFUL! She took the time to fully understand our needs, wants, and must-haves for our new home (and we got it all). She gracefully negotiated our dream home and kept the first time home buying nerves at bay. I would HIGHLY recommend Serena to anyone buying or selling! THANK YOU SERENA!"
