Originally from Indiana, Paula came to California more than four decades ago. She considers herself one of San Francisco’s biggest enthusiasts and as such involves herself in a variety of community-related volunteer activities and nonprofit organizations in addition to numerous real estate associations. Today, she uses her keen research and interpersonal communication skills to help buyers and sellers of San Francisco Bay Area properties.
Paula is ranked in the top 10 percent of San Francisco real estate agents and is a member of San Francisco’s Top Agent Network, an exclusive, invitation-only network of San Francisco’s top performing real estate agents.
For the past 16 years, Paula has represented both buyers and sellers of single-family homes, condominiums, and multiunit buildings. Paula makes a serious commitment to all of her clients. That personal commitment is to listen closely, speak honestly, negotiate aggressively, and lead with her clients’ best interests in mind. Capitalizing on approximately 30 years of real estate-related and financial expertise and a diversity of deal-making experience, Paula makes it a point to employ unique measures to ensure her clients stand out from the proverbial crowd.
Paula’s clients recognize her proactive, “can-do” attitude, her 24/7 accessibility, her legendary discretion, her laser focus, and attention to detail. Most importantly, they recognize her extraordinary commitment to achieving their real estate goals.
After leaving the corporate/legal business world, Paula created a unique real estate business model: Her real estate practice focuses on serving the business community by representing national and international corporations in their efforts to recruit and relocate employees, senior management, partners, and so on, to the San Francisco Bay Area. To be most effective, Paula specializes in serving the broader Bay Area by focusing on five counties: San Francisco County, Marin County, Alameda County, Contra Costa County, and San Mateo County.
With a background in securities and real estate law, real estate lending, and investment banking, Paula takes great care in representing her clients, protecting her clients’ valuable time and confidentiality, and managing their expectations while delivering on their objectives. Her commitment is to protect their most significant asset, so their priorities become her own and their investment is considered her responsibility to protect. She negotiates to win on every occasion, yet always in an ethical framework that places the highest regard on the reputation of her clients.
