Worldly, wise and weaving an intricate life tapestry that speaks to her love for art, style and people. Chih Wu, Realtor®, was born in Taiwan, but at an early age business took her family on the road traveling through South America, discovering a kaleidoscope of cultures and languages; hence her fluency in both Mandarin and Spanish. From the rain forest of Brazil to the cities of Buenos Aires, Chih learned that all of her life experiences, small to grand, are colorful threads in your life journey.
As a young adult she moved to Oakland to earn her BA in economics with an emphasis in finance in three short and condensed years at Mills College. With a strong belief that education is the foundation of progress and knowledge is power in business, Chih entered the world of marketing and sharpened her negotiating skills with positions at reputable financial institutions: Thomas Cook Foreign Exchange; Fidelity Investments and Pacific Stock Exchange Equity Market.
With an innate skill at communication, Chih started her real estate career as a salesperson in 2004 and received her broker license in 2012. Joining the Alain Pinel family in 2015, Chih expertly guides families thoughtfully through the every-changing real estate climate with elegance, intelligence and top shelf customer service. She sets clear, understandable and achievable goals. Chih stays unflinchingly on course when negotiations begin until objectives are met for her clients on both the buy and sell sides in residential real estate transactions.
She, her husband Jerome, and daughter, Chloe, live on the East End of Alameda in a Spanish Mediterranean home where they love to collect antique landscape lithographs. Chih appreciates all that the Island has to offer and is deeply involved in the community’s activities as a supporter of Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter, Tzu Chih Foundation, and Susan G. Koman Foundation. On a Sunday afternoon, you may see Chih doing Open Houses or going to Open House.
