A native of Boston, Elise Dubuque first discovered an interest in real estate during a high school internship with Campion and Company, a boutique residential real estate firm in Boston that specializes in luxury properties. That introduction to real estate sales, marketing, and development, combined with her long-held fascination with Boston’s history and urban fabric, became the foundation for Elise’s course of undergraduate study and independent research at Princeton University in the departments of American History, Urban Studies and American Studies.
Following Princeton, Elise returned to Campion and Company where she has held her real estate license and the role of Director of Research and Marketing for the past six years. She has worked closely alongside Massachusetts’ top broker not only in the sales of individual residences, but also in providing pre-development consultation services, in addition to sales and marketing, for residential development projects in and around the city. These developments range in scope from luxury high-rises that have altered Boston’s skyline to restorations of historic brownstones in its most storied neighborhoods.
At MIT, Elise looks to expand her understanding of real estate economics and entrepreneurship, and to strengthen her network within the local and national real estate community. Beyond the program, she plans to further her career in residential real estate development while maintaining reverence for each place’s unique history. She hopes to prove that it is possible to simultaneously serve as a steward of the city’s past, present and future through contributions to its built environment.
In her free time Elise can be found exploring Boston by foot or by longboard, trying new restaurants, and supporting her beloved Boston sports teams.
