Work Philosophy:  My business is based on referrals from past clients and professionals. Experience, integrity and outstanding results help me build lifelong relationships with clients. As your Agent and Fiduciary (with utmost duties of care, confidentiality, disclosure, loyalty and obedience), I personally supervise and negotiate each step of your transaction from the start to closing of escrow.

Only the finest contractors and stagers are involved in the preparation and marketing of your home for sale, to meet your objectives with peace of mind. You can rely on my deep knowledge of the market, expert advice regarding contracts, disclosures and legal matters, to buy your next home, while benefiting from a seasoned network of lenders and contractors.
