Having always called Sonoma County home, Lisa has cultivated a wealth of knowledge and experience about the culture, communities, and industries in this area. She takes responsibility for sharing this experience with each of her clients, ensuring that they feel equally at home -- whether they settle near the vineyards or the Golden Gate.
When clients chose to work with Lisa, they gain insight about the authentic flavors of Northern California. Lisa draws on her degree in viticulture and wine marketing, eight years in hospitality, sales, management, and marketing, and her participation in the start up of several wine and food pairing programs in Sonoma County to direct clients to the best cuisine and wine their new hometown has to offer.
Most will agree that it takes participating in shaping a community to know what makes a good one. Raising her two children in Sonoma taught Lisa the value of family bonds and the importance of committing herself wholeheartedly to any dependents. She carried this feeling of responsibility to the greater community through involvement in its schools, children's reading programs, fundraising, and coaching soccer for five years. Lisa draws on these active roles she’s played in shaping family life and the greater community of Sonoma to discern where clients will best take root and thrive.
In addition to shaping the world around her home, Lisa spent many years designing, building, and remodeling homes in Sonoma County. Her enthusiasm for real estate bloomed in the '90s while helping her family sell some of the most desirable land in the eastern hills of Sonoma Valley. Lisa strives to share this enthusiasm in all her interactions with clients.
Above all else, Lisa understands the importance of organization, patience, communication, and perseverance in all aspects of her life. She understands the vulnerability people experience as they make the leap from one home and phase of life to the next, and she is prepared to offer the guidance and wisdom and fortify that transition with confidence.
In her private time, Lisa enjoys road biking, hiking, playing tennis, cooking, drinking great wine, and traveling. She is looking forward to making new friends and clients in Marin County, Sonoma and Healdsburg – communities she has become deeply immersed in and come to love through the years. Her previous experience buying and selling homes in each of these areas – Sonoma, Tiburon/Marin, and Healdsburg -- has distinguished her from other realtors.
Since becoming an agent in 2005, Lisa has been recognized as a top producer. Furthermore, she has been in the Chairman's Circle of Excellence since 2009 and was selected by Goldline Research as one of the leading real estate professionals of the Western United States for 2009. (The list of leading real estate professionals of the Western United States was published in the Sept. 21, 2009 issue of Forbes magazine.)
