A commitment to communication is one of my most important assets in working with clients and peers. Client service is my #1 priority. I am known to have a compassionate ear; I listen, I reflect, and then I react appropriately. I do everything I can to prevent and eliminate any potential issues that may arise through attentive, thoughtful listening.
I am a full time professional Realtor educated in all aspects of real estate practice and licensed by the State of California. I adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and am committed to providing you with the highest level of service. As a member of the Board of Realtors, being a Realtor with Alain Pinel, and being a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) and GRI designation, I am part of one of the strongest networks of professional Realtors in Northern California, as well as nationwide. I am honored to be one of the top producers in our office and I take pride in myself, my career, and earn my living for 36 years by servicing the needs of homebuyers and sellers.
I have lived in Almaden Valley and Los Gatos for nearly 40 years. My extensive knowledge about schools, recreation, transportation, cultural activities, restaurants and shopping helps my clients tremendously while purchasing or selling a home. Having purchased, sold and built several residences myself, I know the process from all aspects. All this, combined with my years of experience in real estate, means that I know property values intimately.
As a Premier Realtor with relocation companies, I know that addressing the challenges clients encounter with selling or purchasing property is paramount to good service. I understand the issues that may arise when moving before the school year ends, renting before buying, as well as preparing a home for sale.
I sell primarily in the Los Gatos, Saratoga, Almaden Valley, Cambrian, Willow Glen, Campbell areas. However, I know agents in many of the locations in the Bay area, many I have worked with in various transactions, others I have met through educational opportunities, classes, committees, conventions and professional organizations. Experiencing this, I am able to refer you to a qualified agent anywhere in the United States.
