About Barbara

Menlo Park and Atherton have been my home since childhood! It is here that I built lifelong friendships attending local schools, clubs and churches. After College in Colorado and relocations to Tokyo, Missouri, and Texas, I returned home in 1984 to resume my career and raise my family.

I specialize in Fine Properties right here in the heart of the Mid-Peninsula. I am a creative, problem-solving Professional. My Degree in Fine Arts/Interior Design gives me an eye for beauty, proportion, elegance and a comprehension of building styles and techniques. This unique perspective in evaluating existing homes, as well as their future potential for updating or redesign, is invaluable to my clients.

Previously, I spent 23 years as a Financial Advisor at Morgan Stanley. This intimate knowledge of finance gives me a special appreciation for the fact that your home is the most important investment that you will make in your lifetime!


“ It is a pleasure to provide a reference for Barbara’s great help and support when we purchased our house on Olive Street in Menlo Park last year. She was present for the Inspections, personally supervised the signing and initialing of the Purchase Contract and all necessary Disclosure documents and attended the Close of Escrow. Barbara was also helpful in recommending business professionals and trade contacts in the community. At all times she was responsive within minutes of receiving a call or email.”
