Working as a real estate agent for Berkshire Hathaway is a perfect fit for me both professionally and personally. I admire both the business philosophy and the values that Berkshire Hathaway Home Services (BHSS) represents. With choosing a real estate company to assocciate my name with, I took my options and choices seriously. While researching BHHS as a company I learned that the values that are important to me matched the companies values as well.
Berkshire Hathaway Home Services owner, Warren Buffet, a renowned business man, regards integrity, success and the ability to "do the right thing," in not only himself, but in all of his business affiliations. I am proud to be associated with such a reputable company as BHHS.
I began my real estate career in 1998 when I moved from Southern California to Napa, California. Previously, my husband and I owned and operated a golf pro shop and driving range at a private golf course in Escondido, California. In 1995 my husband had an opportunity to accept a new position as Director Golf/General Manager at Hiddenbrooke Golf Club, just south of Napa, in Vallejo, California. It is here where I started selling custom land parcels for the developer of Hiddenbrooke. Today, Hiddenbrooke has over 3,000 homes along with custom homes built amidst the hillsides that overlook the golf course. I learned invaluable real estate knowledge working with raw land , the city planning department and real estate developers.
In 2008 I purchased a sporting-goods business in Napa where I sold retail sporting equipment, provided team uniforms for local high schools, recreational youth leagues as well as servicing our local business owners with printing and embroidery. For seven years my business grew and I strived to help my customers with all of their sporting needs. This chapter was an instrumental lesson on small business ownership which helped with my overall ablity to be a successful entrepreneur. I sold the business in 2015 and today I focus on residential real estate while continuing to build strong business relationships within the community.
My husband and I have three adult children, Thomas, Torrey and Zack. My proudest moments were watching them grow up in Napa, play sports, graduate college, earn their master degrees and become successful, responsible, happy people. My husband, Tom Sims, is now the Head Golf Professional P.G.A Class A at Silverado Country Club.
My hope is that someone reading my bio will conclude that I put fair, honest business dealings at a very high level. I aspire to being successful in life but never at the cost of my values or beliefs. At the end of the day I want to know that I did my best for my clients and that they feel the time we spent together during our transaction, whether it is a property listing or a purchase, that they were my number one priority every step of the way.
