Roberta's journey into real estate began in the development department at the Massachusetts Housing Finance Agency. Her experience led her to the Philadelphia Housing Development Corporation where she was a mortgage analyst. She returned to Boston to pursue her interest in cooking and study with the widely acclaimed Madeleine Kamman and later with Roland Mesnier, a former White House pastry chef. She taught cooking classes, owned a catering firm and was a food correspondent for the Boston Globe and Food & Wine magazine before starting a pubic relations agency specializing in the hospitality, residential architectural and design communities.
