Miriam Watkins is a licensed REALTOR® whose passion lies in helping first-time home buyers purchase their first property. In fact, she works closely with the Community Economic Development Center (CEDC) in New Bedford as a Certified Trainer/Instructor teaching First-Time Home Buyer classes. Noticing that many of her students were focusing on purchasing multi-family units, she now also offers Landlord/Investor classes.
Miriam is multi-lingual, with fluency in Spanish, English, and Portuguese. At the CEDC, she also helps teach English as a Second Language and citizenship classes, as well as providing translation services. This work makes Miriam very comfortable working with both buyers and sellers with varied backgrounds and language skills.
Miriam is a member of the REALTORS® Association of Southeastern Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Association of REALTORS®, and the National Association of REALTORS®.
Miriam has lived in New Bedford for the past 30 years and has family throughout the South Coast. She is also a black belt in Karate, which may be initially surprising given her kind and helping nature.
