Our work together is not about me. It's about you and your objectives, hopes, and dreams. Those are my priorities, and I will work tirelessly to make them a reality. I'm most interested in getting to know you, and not only learning about your current goals, but helping you to tease out and better understand your goals and wildest dreams for the future. Plain and simple, that's my secret I listen.
I'm not just here to help you through the technical aspects of buying a home, although I strive to execute those details flawlessly. I'm here as an advisor, confidant, and coach, helping you through this process and all of the emotions, anxieties, and big decisions that come along for the ride. To help you find your new home, the backdrop to your life and where you'll make a lifetime of memories I cannot think of a greater honor or anything more exciting.
As a native of Lafayette and a second-generation real estate agent, my knowledge of the East Bay and the ways in which it has changed over the last 30 years runs deep. I've lived in the Bay Area my entire life, from Oakland to San Francisco to Vallejo, and I can't imagine living anywhere else. While feeling immensely fortunate to live in such an incredibly diverse, progressive, and beautiful place, I understand that buying a home here poses a unique set of challenges, and I'm adept at navigating them in order to find the right fit for each of my clients.
Before officially joining the real estate community, I worked for 20 years in the hospitality industry. I began as a server and quickly realized my passion for cooking, and have worked in some of the top hotels and restaurants in the Bay Area and Sonoma Valley, from line cook to sous chef. Service is my background, and I love the new ways in which I'm able to deploy my love of making people happy.
I may have left the kitchen professionally, but I still love food and spend much of my free time cooking and eating my way through the Bay Area and beyond. I enjoy getting out and exploring, but ultimately I'm a homebody who likes a good dose of peace and quiet. I'm also a member of San Francisco Bay Area Families for Safe Streets, a pedestrian and bicyclist advocacy group that serves the Bay Area.
Trust is the key element in my work, and I look forward to meeting you and earning yours.
