For most people, buying or selling a home is an emotionally complex endeavor. One’s home is the outward extension of the inward self, and ideally, a place to rest, entertain, laugh, and truly enjoy life. For each client, that picture is different, original, and intensely personal. I relish bringing my natural personal ability to connect with others to my professional life, facilitating a holistic approach to buying and selling real estate.
I am a fourth generation Berkeley native who brings a diverse occupational background that includes direct sales for Southern Living Magazine’s Interiors line, technical assistance in pediatric ophthalmology and 16 years of property management to The GRUBB Company. I have a lifelong interest in horticulture and as a result of that passion, ran a successful floral design business for several years. Having lived in Kensington, Piedmont and Berkeley, I bring my lifelong, intimate knowledge of our schools, neighborhoods and community to my clients.
Personalized, high-quality service delivered in a composed manner is critical to any solid business relationship, and effective time management is crucial to a clear, successful transaction. I can effectively use my compassionate, yet focused listening ear to get to the crux of my clients’ goals.
Continuing to develop effective relationships with the brokerage community and with my qualified resources serves as the foundation of my success. Attention to detail, tenacious follow-through and strong commitment to my clients are among the attributes that make my transactions seamless and uncomplicated. My fine-tuned negotiating acumen and communication skills deliver extraordinary results.
I am an active participant in our community as a member of the Oakland Association of Realtors, the California Association of Realtors, the National Association of Realtors, the Emeryville Chamber of Commerce and the San Francisco Ballet’s volunteer corps.
I am interested in working with clients that energize and challenge my professional life as well as my spirit. The current real estate market requires a Realtor® who will bring a fresh look at the market, have a finger on the pulse of the community, and connect with creative service professionals to bring the dream of homebuying into reality. I look forward to working with you!
