What is your name and the name of your business?
Lobin Frizzell, Team leader of 603 Property Group
How did you get to Sandwich, NH?
As a native to NH, I grew up in Plainfield, NH on the Connecticut River. I brought my son Bryce to the Sandwich Fair when he was 6 years old and I knew then that this is where I needed to live.
How did you get started in this profession?
My mother was a realtor and she passed away when I was 20 but before she passed she made me get my real estate license as she had several transactions that would close after her death. I have been in and out of the real estate business ever since. In my younger days, I would start a business and then sell it, which is where my love for commercial real estate began.
Tell us about your business.
My team and I work all over the state of NH to sell residential and commercial real estate. We specialize in customer service and marketing of luxury homes.
How did your business get started?
I began working under the brokerage of Keller Williams and by their coaching and training my business grew to a point three years ago that I needed to bring on people to grow my business.
What is the most fun/satisfying aspect of your work?
I love helping people find their homes or hit a milestone in their life, like buying their first investment property.
What is the hardest?
When you cannot help. It's challenging when you have a young family that you have a relationship with that are hardworking and they are in need of housing because their rental is being sold and they are unprepared to buy.
How has this last Covid year affected your work?
Covid in the beginning was a boon to real estate. There seemed to be endless amounts of money-cash to buy any property on the market. As of late, the buyers are fatigued from the bidding wars and the seller's overinflated pricing is being corrected. The market seems to be shifting to a balanced market.
What are your goals and hopes for the future?
I love what I do. I have my license in Maine and Florida as well as NH, and I am building teams there.
What else can you tell us about yourself and your life in Sandwich?
Another Sandwich project of mine was buying the North Sandwich Store in the hopes of adding value to the community. Pre-covid when my older children Bryce and Baylee opened the store for me as part of a why-not-try-it campaign, the store actually did okay, and with consistency would likely have continued at okay—okay meaning just covering costs, which I was fine with.
However, when they left for college, staffing became the issue. What I would love is to find a like-minded individual who would like to operate it. At the moment I am working on a plan for a food coop but again I am stretched pretty thin and would need help. If you have any good ideas, please let me know!
Sandwich has my heart. It has a lot going on for a small town. I love that I can ride my horse into town and get a cup of coffee. Really the thing that I find most amazing about Sandwich, beyond Squam, the hiking, and the Sandwich Creamery, is how interesting the people who live here are. I have raised three children in Sandwich and they tell me I can never leave. I think they are right.
