As a Realtor® since 1988, I’ve dedicated myself to creating lasting and highly satisfying relationships with my clients and associates. Because I have their trust and respect, the majority of my business comes by referral from past clients as well as from other agents. Always among the top agents at Compass, and an Estates Division director, I have ranked as high as 33 among 18,000 agents nationwide. I have been fortunate to consistently represent the buyers and sellers of many of the most distinctive properties in my market while providing estate quality service to all of my clients.
A native Northern Californian and a longtime resident of Berkeley, I am a graduate of University of California, Berkeley with a master’s degree in history. My academic and teaching background form the foundation of my excellent communication skills and are the source of my attention to careful research and analysis. Owning my own retail business taught me to appreciate and cultivate the creative skills needed to be an entrepreneur. I meld these attitudes and skills together in the service of my impressive group of clients who come from all over the world.
My understanding of what it takes to be a successful buyer or seller in any market is what sets me apart. My patience and calmness are buttressed by tenacity and intensity. Given my sterling reputation within the real estate community, I am a powerful ally at the table for you, my clients.
I love real estate because it enables me to be both a student and a teacher; it is an endlessly challenging business with new lessons learned every day. I love sharing my clients’ lives and helping them reach their goals. I thrive on finding the right property and preparing properties for the market.
