Carin Bloomfield recently joined Wilchins Cosentino & Novins, bringing years of legal experience in both residential and commercial real estate. During college, she interned for a prominent criminal defense attorney and became fascinated with the law.
Carin grew up in Shrewsbury, MA with her parents and an older brother. As a kid, she wanted to ride horses and convinced the owners of a local barn to have her feed and care for the horses in the morning before school in return for riding for free. Her Dad assumed this interest would quickly fade as he drove her every morning to the barn. Carin took care of the horses and rode for over ten years!
In high school, Carin loved to debate her teachers which led to her teachers recommending becoming a lawyer as the perfect career path. This love of debate was an early indicator of her passion for political science and law. An avid reader and writer, Carin earned a double major in both History and Political Science in college and, at that time, thought her career would be in either education or continuing to law school.
Unsure if she wanted to make the financial investment in law school, Carin worked as a paralegal for several years before deciding to attend law school and launching her career at a major Boston law firm in their real estate department.
Carin ran her own real estate firm for several decades as she started her family and balanced the demands of real estate law and raising two children. As her oldest entered college, she joined another MetroWest firm to focus on commercial real estate before recently joining WCN.
When not working, Carin loves history and has tracked her genealogy back to the 1500s. She has secured the documentation of family members in Daughters of the American Revolution and some who arrived in America on the Mayflower. Her genealogy research revealed her family had even owned a circus which they sold to Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus in the 19th century.
Carin describes her parents as her mentors and heroes. She lost both of her parents when they were relatively young, but she attributes her work ethic and drive to her father, who grew up very poor with his immigrant parents working in the mills of the Merrimack Valley. At the young age of 12, he realized that education was going to be his key to a better life. He biked to Brooks School and secured his attendance at the prestigious private school in return for working in the cafeteria. While at Brooks he captained three sports teams, graduated with a 4.0 and earned a full scholarship to Middlebury College in Vermont. He started his own business and Carin learned from his example that you could define your own path through hard work and determination.
Carin lives in Hudson, MA with her husband, two children and two dogs. She is an animal lover and regularly volunteers at animal shelters and rescue operations. Her love of animals is shared by her daughter who is applying to veterinary schools.
Her favorite biographies include books on Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan. She loves hiking with her dogs, getting a chance to ride a horse when possible and does not like to cook, to her husband’s dismay.
WCN is thrilled to have Carin Bloomfield at the firm to offer guidance and counsel on real estate matters. To learn more about Carin or to contact her directly, click here.
