"Success is unwavering
commitment to results for my clients"

By selecting me as your agent, you are allowing me into your life at a time of great change, as you undertake an enormous financial and emotional transaction. My diligent and persevering approach, refined through extensive experience, starts with total commitment to you and the goals that we set to ensure you receive the best results. I have consistently achieved landmark results through a combination of creativity, tenacity and intuition based solidly on negotiating experience. Staying at the forefront involves in-depth knowledge and experience coupled with my deploying cutting edge techniques.

The increasing complexity of real estate transactions has added multiple challenges and opportunities in the real estate arena. My background as a psychotherapist, with an MSW from UCLA, coupled with my professional interior design work, contribute to the way in which I approach my real estate practice. I specialize in providing extraordinary service to Bay Area buyers and sellers of all sizes of homes, from lofts and condominiums to luxury estates. As a Certified Home Luxury Specialist, meticulous attention to detail, comprehensive follow through, and refined diplomacy are key to meeting my clients' needs at the highest level.

Throughout my 19-year career I have been honored to have the distinction of consistently being recognized among the elite of Top Producing Agents at The GRUBB Company, in the East Bay, county-wide, and nationally in the top .5%.

"Helene is the epitome of a finely tuned agent. She is keenly intuitive, constantly in sync with the market. She has her ear on the trends, her eyes on the staging, and her mind on the marketing, and of course, her antennae on the client's interest."   - Kitty Cole, Sales Manager, The Grubb Co.

"Helene is so smart! Her sense of efficiency and determination is very exciting and effective!"  - DJ Grubb, Owner and President, The Grubb Co.

I am honored that my clients rely on me so fully and I constantly seek to fulfill their trust. References available upon request.
