About Betsy

With 15 years of marketing experience prior to my real estate career, I know what it takes to sell a home. Having grown up in Wellesley and raised a family here, I also know how to find the perfect home in the area. From staging an open house that will have your neighbors drooling, to recommending the perfect cheese shop for your housewarming party needs, I’ve got your back. I want you to feel like you are working with a trusted friend—who also happens to know every street in town.

Deciding which of the many #1 realtors out there you’d like to work with can be a daunting task. Frankly, it’s hard enough to figure out what kind of wizard math is necessary to come up with that many #1 realtors in the first place. More importantly, you need to figure out what’s behind each one of those ratings.

My formula? A lifelong knowledge of the local neighborhoods (Wellesley, Weston, Needham, and Dover), a commitment to my client’s needs over my commission check, and over 20 years of real estate experience. I will always be honest with you, do what’s in your best interest, and give you the individualized attention you deserve as you navigate the process of buying or selling your home.

I’d love to grab a coffee and discuss what you’re looking for and how I can help. Now for an even harder decision, Starbucks or Cafe Nero?

Why Rutledge Properties

I am proud that highly personalized service is a hallmark of my approach and equally proud to be affiliated with a brokerage that shares that philosophy.

Rutledge Properties is locally owned and operated and has been providing exceptional service in the Wellesley area since 1978. I basically grew up in this office, before cell phones, before the internet, and way before HGTV and Zillow. My mom used to own Rutledge. While I could never work for my mom (c’mon, you get it, right?), I am so proud to work with the exceptional brokerage that she helped to build. With a single office and an experienced team, Rutledge continually emerges as a leader in the field. By staying intentionally small, Rutledge agents can focus on cultivating genuine, lasting client relationships and going above and beyond in every situation.
