Welcome to Ermine Lovell
There is so much to say about the passions and imagination that went into the founding of Ermine Lovell Real Estate. Ermine was from Virginia, white gloves and all, and married into Cape Cod Gentry, the Lovell Family of Menauhant, Falmouth. Among his family’s lands was Ten Acre Farm; a working farm where Ermine and her husband Hollis were able to combine his love of gardening with her love of nature and the open spaces of her new home, Cape Cod.
In 1935, this love of the land eventually transitioned into a real estate business. While Real Estate became her business, conservation became her passion. Ermine’s early fight for conservation, occasionally at odds with the Capes development, was initially under the guidance of the Massachusetts Audubon Society. She worked tirelessly to get her friends and clients to donate lands and to understand the need for preservation to go hand in hand with the business of development.
