Originally from Montreal, Canada and raised in Southern California, I completed both my undergraduate and graduate work at UCLA, where I earned a B.A. in economics and an M.B.A. in finance/marketing. My career path took me to Wall Street, where for 35 years I managed client relationships and dealt directly with the equity trading desks of institutional accounts for Kidder Peabody and Goldman Sachs. I completed my trading career as the manager of West Coast sales for Knight Capital Group in San Francisco.
Several years ago I shifted gears and decided to bring my financial background to the world of residential real estate, where I now focus on the high-end, luxury residential properties that abound in San Francisco and its surrounding areas. And while I have shifted asset classes, my core business philosophy remains the same: I am a specialist whose singular priority is my clients. I am committed to providing exceptional service by focusing on my clients’ real estate needs, helping them achieve their goals by going the extra mile on their behalf.
When I am engaged to represent buyers or sellers, I am not just a real estate agent – I am also a consultant and an advisor. I perform all due diligence required in each transaction. I become my clients' advisor, their sounding board, their buffer, and their negotiator. Most importantly, I provide them with creative, nuanced alternatives and solutions to achieve their real estate objectives.
