I have been a full time Realtor and Relocation Consultant since 1988 and an award-winning, top-producing real estate agent. My passion for excellence translates into a high level of professional service, tailored to fit the specific wants and needs of each and every client.
I speak English, Turkish, Spanish and some French. As a relocation consultant, my language fluency and understanding of diverse cultures helps me find what you are looking for in a home and in a community, and to understand the nuances of your specific situation.
Born in Turkey and raised in the US since childhood, I have resided in the Bay Area since 1975. I have lived and worked in every county around the Bay Area, but I specialize in real estate sales and relocation throughout Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, and San Mateo Counties. This multi-county approach allows me the flexibility to provide you with an unbiased view of different areas, to compare and contrast them. I think of myself first and foremost as a professional consultant, and my only agenda is to create the optimal purchase or sale experience for you. My extensive network and contacts throughout these areas also provide you with an edge when dealing in a highly competitive market, whether as a Buyer or Seller.
I earned a Juris Doctorate (J.D.) from the University of California, Hastings College of Law and a B.A. from the University of Michigan in political science and economics. You will feel more secure knowing I have an extensive background in contracts, negotiations and finance. Prior to entering real estate sales, I also worked as a loan officer in mortgage banking, which enables me to field your questions and concerns regarding your home financing issues.
My professional memberships include the State Bar of Michigan, the National Association of REALTORS, the California Association of REALTORS, the Bay East Association of REALTORS, the Contra Costa Association of REALTORS, and the Santa Clara County Association of REALTORS. I have frequently placed within the top 10% and 5% lists of producing agents since 1988.
When I am not working real estate I love sailing, skiing, musical theatre, gourmet cooking, reading, writing, and singing. I also love sharing special times with family and friends.
I look forward to serving you.
