During WWII, while her husband was active in the Army, Ann graduated from Fashion School and became a Powers Model. “In 1947, we moved back to Boston where my husband entered the heating business (today he works for Boded Oil Co.), and I started in the real estate business working for a residential office…modeling just didn’t pay enough in Boston. In 1950, I opened Southeastern Properties with Bob Avery, handling homes on the South Shore; and in 1952 I opened A.L. DeWolfe in Milton, where I have been ever since. This is THE bedroom town south of the city and the average house sale runs about $35,000.” Ann found time to bring up four children, including a 22 year old son who will join the firm this winter. “I love the business and will never retire,” states the attractive ex-model. “I have always believed in working long hours to be successful.”
