About Us


Ethan and Jamie Berg are the owners of the Winthrop Estate.  Since 2003, they have been restoring the property to its original purpose as an elegant residence.


Ethan is a full-tme value investor. He was a management consultant with Monitor Company for many years before he began his investment carreer. He grew up in Marblehead, Massachusetts. When he is not managing investments, he enjoys cycling, organic food, beach time, the Red Sox, reading, and playing games with his children.   


Jamie grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She was a personal fitness trainer and event planner and is now a full-time mom. When not busy with the house or kids, she enjoys cycling, cooking, learning the ukulele, gardening and traveling.
