Design & Operations
Annie’s background in art dealing and consulting may seem like an unlikely fit for a home management company but has armed her with over 10 years of experience in luxury service and design. Before joining the Coda Team she worked in art galleries and most recently as an art consultant for designers and architects working on large, custom renovations and new construction projects. She brings her eye for design and a strong sense of structure to the company, and has helped Coda to build out more robust project management and task tracking systems. Annie is also proficient in architectural planning and modeling software, adding a new element to Coda’s ability to help our clients think through and visualize their projects.
Head of Field Operations
Jon has worked in Real Estate and Property Management since 1997. He started as a leasing consultant for Princeton Properties where he managed roughly 800 apartments spread across 8 communities. After many years there he left to start his own mortgage corporation, an experience that gave him extensive experience in construction and finance. In 2011, Jon joined Skinner Demolition where he helped grow his division and launched a new branch within the company, Skinner Disposal. Jon’s experience also includes multiple ground-up residential developments. At Coda, this varied and extensive experience makes him the perfect fit to run our field operations, and to oversee our medium to large projects. Jon lives in Sharon with his wife and 2 children, and he is the head coach of Sharon High School Lacrosse.

As a Project manager at Coda, Austin brings a positive and dedicated approach to projects of all sizes and with the constant flux of tasks and challenges brought to Coda, his skillset never stops growing. Austin recently received his Construction Supervisors License in the state of Massachusetts and continues to prove himself as an invaluable member of the team.
