Purchased a home in Portsmouth in 1978 and raised my family to have the same life experiences I enjoyed as a kid. The costs have grown such that the great things I experienced as a child are now approaching out of reach for my children to live here.

I have five grandchildren two of which live in Tiverton and two in the Portsmouth school system, Portsmouth remains my home and very important to me.
