Hello! I have been in the Bay Area real estate industry since 1989, including: sales; administration; coaching; mentorships, training and relocation services. I’ve had the pleasure mentoring several top producing agents.
I strongly believe in the principles of integrity, dependability, honest communication, thoroughness and open negotiation. I understand the delicate balance between sentimentality and investment involved in real estate sales and purchases.
My real estate education includes: appraisal; ethics; finance; economics; risk management; consumer protection; property management; and sales procedures. I am an ex-real estate appraiser. I believe in continual education. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Science – Business concentration, a minor in Spanish, and an Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts. I am a proud holder of a Private Pilot’s License and hold a Cross-Cultural Elementary Teaching Credential.
A native Californian, I grew up in the Belmont and Woodside areas and have most recently resided in Los Altos Hills and Mountain View. I have taught elementary school in both the Los Altos and Milpitas School Districts.
