Monica’s Legal and International Credentials
Born and raised in London, England, Monica grew up in a family that included Irish parents and three siblings, including her identical twin. A graduate of the London School of Economics and Political Science with a Bachelor of Laws degree, she was admitted to the Bar of England and Wales as a “barrister.” Believing that the grass was greener on this side of the Atlantic, Monica moved to New York City, earned a Masters of Laws degree from Columbia Law School, became a member of the New York Bar and practiced commercial litigation with the well-known firm of Lord, Day & Lord. She later became a litigation partner at the international law firms, Lord Day & Lord, Barrett Smith and subsequently, Morgan Lewis & Bockius.
After marrying a Long Island native in 1995, Monica and her husband Jim decided to leave the “rat race” in the big city and move south for a new lifestyle. When they relocated to Wilmington, NC, they knew they had found the best place to call home and raise a family. They have two children and enjoy many activities as a family, including the beach, kayaking, boating, traveling and music. Monica has a passion for helping others, especially children. She makes a donation after every closing to several charities supporting the education of school children here and abroad. In recent years, Monica and her husband have made humanitarian trips to El Salvador on behalf of TheLeastAmongUs.org. In 2008 she and her husband endowed a new school, Our Lady of the Poor, in the village of Zacatecoluca, that now provides a grade-school education for more than 100 impoverished children. Since joining RE/MAX Essential she is excited to be lending her support to SaveAGeneration.com.
Monica’s Accent on a First Class Real Estate Experience
Monica began her real estate career in 1997 and today she applies her expertise for the benefit of her national and international clientele. To quote Monica: “My former career as a litigation attorney taught me to provide the highest level of service to my clients, to always act ethically and to pay attention to the details. I employ those same skills in representing my buyer and seller clients as their Broker”
