Live every day with joy, purpose, and intent
Raised in Berkeley and Albany, I have an in-depth knowledge about the East Bay Area, and bring a Native's understanding of the rhythm of life here to my market expertise. I am passionate about the Bay Area, passionate about my work in real estate, and am driven by my commitment to deliver truly excellent service. I have always derived a great amount of joy and satisfaction in helping others, and working in real estate provides an endless channel of opportunities.
If I am representing you as a seller, it will be my goal to discover the heart and soul of your home and focus on that in all marketing efforts and sales strategies. If I am representing you as a buyer, my main purpose and joy will be to match you with a home whose heart and soul truly speaks to you. Together, we will make those dreams a reality! I listen to my clients, focus on what they are looking for, then guide them through the home selling and buying process with hard work, commitment, sensitivity, and a little fun along the way. I am flexible and easily adjust to many different personal styles, needs, and situations.
A virtual lifetime of experience in sales has truly equipped me with the skills required to represent both buyers and sellers in the real estate market. My past role as a sales executive in the fashion accessories industry grew over an exciting 25 years to include negotiations with top retailers, sales analysis, forecasting, design, branding and product development. This skillset, along with my passion for the industry, combine to make me an ideal real estate professional for your next home purchase or sale. Whether you're a first time buyer, or looking to up or downsize, I will be there with you every step of the way and beyond. My aim is to assist you in furthering your real estate needs, and to help you navigate the sometimes confusing and frustrating waters of this crazy market.
When I'm not working, I'm likely at the gym dancing up a storm in the name of fitness, tending to my garden, fulfilling my fruit and veggie habit at Monterey Market, or reading a great new book. I never waste an opportunity to move and grow! I am a life-long dancer with 12 years of classical ballet training. In fact, I met my husband, Philippe, on the dance floor, over 29 years ago; the beginning of a great love story, we married just six weeks later! We have raised our two sons here in the Bay Area, keeping close family ties both here and in Philippe's native France.
I truly love the Bay Area and look forward to sharing my knowledge, enthusiasm and skills to benefit you in your next move!
