Sean Crothers, Office Administrator

My name is Sean Crothers, a born & raised New Englander, I have been a resident of South County for over 15 years. Most of my life was spent near the beach, growing up in Plymouth,

MA giving me a true admiration for the beaches of Rhode Island. After attending school at Suffolk University in Boston, MA I realized city life wasn’t for me & I followed a backroad to the place I love to call home, here in RI.

Since coming to RI, I have continued to pursue my career in retail management.  I have been in retail management for almost 20 years, 15 of those for the current company.  Over the last decade I have managed and operated several multi-million dollar retail stores, all while maintaining the highest level of customer expectations. Customer service is a personal mission for me.  When I am not at my 9 to 5 I have discovered a passion for home renovations, interior design, real estate & the pride of home ownership. In the last 10 years my husband and I have completely renovated four of our own personal homes. It was our very first home we purchased together that sparked my love for DIY home improvements and real estate.

Although I have been a part of Beaches and Backroads for many years, in 2017 I became the official Office Administrator.  I have become much more involved in the real estate world & put my strong organizational & people skills to further use. Since then I have used my knowledge & experience in the fashion industry & a passion for home design to aid our clients and home owners in the renovation process through design consulting.

While most of what I do here is behind the scenes with files and agent-client communication, I would love the opportunity to help any homeowner, buyer or investor in anything from answering questions to bringing their renovation dreams to life!
