I have been active in listing and selling East Bay real estate including Oakland, Berkeley, Piedmont, and Emeryville properties since 1987.
I placed my license with the Montclair-Piedmont office of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in 2004, and have earned the Previews Property Specialist designation through successfully listing and selling luxury residential properties.
I have focused on residential resales, as well as having significant residential income, new construction and vacant land sales experience.
I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, the California Association of Realtors, and of the Oakland-Berkeley Association of Realtors.
I have been honored by being elected by my fellow Realtors to serve as one of the directors of the Oakland Association of Realtors starting in 2012 until the merger with the Berkeley Association of Realtors in January, 2015.
I have also been honored with being appointed one of the East Bay Regional Data, Inc. Multiple Listing Service directors starting in 2012, and last year was elected to serve as a director through 2015.
I served as a Board of Realtors Political Action Commitee (BORPAC) trustee 1998-2000, and was BORPAC Vice-Chair for 2000.
My professional philosophy is based upon a foundation of commitment to my agency responsibilities and to continuing professional and personal development. Set firmly on that foundation, the heart of my real estate practice is a passion to add something really worthwhile to my clients lives and to our community.
