You deserve to work with a Realtor who is dedicated to providing you with exceptional, personalized service, resulting in a smooth & successful experience, regardless of your price point or the housing market. Are you concerned about whether now is the right time to buy or sell? My job is to listen to your needs and provide you with the information that will enable you to make the best decisions for you. When you decide that the time is right, my goal is to guide you on your journey, anticipate concerns before they become problems, and add some fun to the process…all while achieving or exceeding your financial goals!
I specialize in residential real estate sales throughout the Diablo Valley, Lamorinda, and Tri-Valley communities. With 32 years of experience as a full-time Realtor, I am prepared to help you make your next move, your best ever! My business style is consultative and never pushy because to me, business is all about the relationships. Most of my business comes from repeat clients and their family & friends, because they know that I genuinely care about them and they know that they can count on excellence, in every transaction.
I also strive to build & maintain strong relationships within the professional real estate community, which benefits my clients. Some of these benefits include networking to get advance information about listings that are coming soon and being a Realtor who other Realtors wish to work with (this can be critical in a multiple-offer scenario for a buyer, or when representing a seller in a slower market). I also maintain relationships with a top-notch team of experts to help you (lenders, escrow, title, inspectors, etc.). If you’re considering buying or selling in another area - please let me know. I’ve got an excellent network of Realtors across the country and I’m happy to help you find the one that is best suited to help you.
Sellers benefit from my personal management of every detail, expert marketing & presentation of properties, and strong contract negotiation skills, resulting in the highest possible price for my listings. Buyers appreciate my patience and tireless efforts to find them the right home and negotiate the best terms on their behalf, even in competitive multiple offer market conditions.
I graduated from UC Davis, in 1990, and began my career as a Realtor in 1991. I have a strong history of working with a diverse clientèle. My portfolio of homes sold includes numerous multi-million dollar estates, to the smallest of condos. I also have experience with acreage and vacant land/lot sales, at different stages of development. Regardless of the property value, every client can always expect the same respect and first class service, in every transaction.
I am a native of the East San Francisco Bay Area and I’m a longtime Danville resident. I’ve also spent many years selling homes in the coastal areas of Orange County. I returned to the Bay Area in 2005, to be closer to family and friends. I believe that supporting our local community is one of the most important roles of being a Realtor…and a great citizen! I’ve enjoyed leading a girl scout troop, volunteering with the local 4-H Club and helping with the high school Instrumental Music programs, where my two children have been involved. I’m passionate about nature and love spending time exploring the many local trails that our area has to offer.
Throughout the years, I have been the recipient of numerous sales awards. I take the most pride in receiving the “5 Star Professional” award, since it is based on quality of service (as rated by past clients), rather than on sales volume. My past clients know that I do what it takes to reduce their stress, negotiate strongly on their behalf, and provide clear communication throughout the entire transaction. I take pride in my work ethic, attention to detail, creative solutions and loyalty to my clients.
Call me today to find out how I can help you achieve your real estate goals and to experience service that comes from the heart.
