I am a native of Berkeley and have lived in the Bay Area all my life. After a career in advertising I now dedicate myself to assisting others in achieving their real estate dreams. Being a native definitely has its advantages in representing buyers and sellers in the East Bay real estate markets. I customize my strategy for the purchase or sale of each home and every buyer or seller to achieve the best possible results in each situation. To do that, I take the time to get to know my clients to determine what is important to them. I bring mindfulness and care to each client relationship and I have a keen awareness of my fiduciary role as Realtor. I love to see people do smart things with their money, and I view real estate as an important part of a balanced financial portfolio. Whatever your needs are, I am here to help you every step along the way. My success depends on my ability to understand how important a housing decision is to your present and future needs. After all, for most people buying a home is the biggest investment that they will every make. I hope to help make your buying and selling experience as seamless and rewarding as possible. Whether you are selling or buying a home, you can trust that you'll be well informed on all aspects of your transactions.
