About Liz

Her career experience makes Liz well suited for today’s competitive real estate market. Trained as an attorney, and formerly in-house counsel for a number of Bay Area companies, Liz is tenacious, hardworking, and has a well-honed appreciation for the ups and downs of negotiating for her clients -- her sense of humor and ability to get along with all kinds certainly help.

Liz gets sellers the highest possible price for their homes. With a keen designer’s eye (she’s a Certified Home Stager), she can recommend upgrades and tidying that will reap a higher sales price without needless spending. She’ll help them determine a realistic sales price and market the home through her vast network of realtor and non-realtor contacts.

Buyers know that Liz will find them their dream home. She gets to know all her clients on a personal level-long before the home search begins. She learns what their “dream home” would feel like-and then goes out and finds it. Liz negotiates for them-often getting the deal done when theirs is not the highest offer.

While Liz is a bulldog for her clients, she also understands that buying or selling a home can be an emotional and stressful experience. It’s personal and she’s been there. Liz has been a first time home-owner, sold a home in a market downturn, been relocated, renovated a turn-of-the century Edwardian and dealt with architects, inspectors and vendors of all types.

Liz is a long time supporter of PAWS and lives on Potrero Hill with her husband and rescue pup, Sassy.


Liz is a phenomenal agent!  The first time we worked together she had a young couple expecting their first child within a month.  Liz found out what the seller was looking for and got them into contract (I think on their first offer!). She successfully managed all aspects of the transaction (and worked closely with me to make sure all the financing was in place) and got them into their new home before the delivery date!  She made home-buying seem easy. -Tom B.

We ran into Liz at an open house at the start of our frantic search for a home just a few weeks before the birth of our first baby after finding out our rental was being sold.  Liz was immediately helpful and I knew we had to work with her.  She understood our sense of urgency and the parameters of our search (neighborhood price range proximity to public transit size etc.). She helped us navigate the process of deciding whether or not to buy a particular property that we were interested in and then when we fell in love with a different property at the 11th hour she wasn't even phased.  Less than 24 hours after seeing the house of our dreams she had an offer written up bargained with the selling agent and offer accepted.  She pushed for a super quick escrow was militant about helping us get everything we needed to close and 20 days later we were home owners - 3 days before the arrival of our little guy.  Liz is warm fun professional and has a great eye.  She paid great attention to detail and made the process as fun and seamless for us as it could be.  We are so thankful to have found this home to spend our lives in in our favorite city in the world and Liz was a huge part of making that happen for us as she loves this city too.  I definitely recommend working with her! -Emily
