My approach to real estate is a potent combination of high-touch service, hard work, and a passion for finding a home that's right for you.
Before real estate, I enjoyed a successful career in design, art direction and brand marketing, all of which comes into play to capture your key objectives and preferences, develop a planned approach, and help buyers shine in an offer presentation. My twenty-year professional background combined with more than a decade of real estate experience and my impeccable relationships within the industry, all come together as a distinct advantage that has contributed to countless successful outcomes for clients year after year.
While a devoted, accomplished agent ranking in the top 5% of agents in the East Bay, I also have multiple eclectic interests. A fondness for Italian language and culture and a taste for adventure propelled me to Italy between careers, where I received a scholarship to study intensive Italian in Genova. I remain a lifelong student of the language today. My explorer instincts also took me to Amsterdam just after college. I spent a year living and cultivating Dutch design while working the graveyard shift at the best photography lab in Europe.
I am passionate about the performing and visual arts, supporting many of the Bay Area’s ballet companies and museums, and hosting music concerts, cooking events, and photo shoots in my home. Active in Oakland, Piedmont, Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito, and Alameda communities, my current home is a 1940s brick warehouse on the Oakland-Emeryville border, converted from an industrial machine shop to a polished residence. The transformation and renovation received a Creative Re-Use award from Metropolitan Home magazine.
Since moving to the Bay Area from Seattle in 1988, I have witnessed a cultural evolution in the East Bay, from a place that many people once shied away from, to a blooming, bustling community where everyone wants to be. I relish this renaissance, and delight in the thought of people enjoying strolls through their neighborhoods, admiring their neighbors’ shiny front doors and crisp picket fences, and contributing to a place that has become a true destination.
Maybe I’ll see you there.
