Q&A

  • Would someone describe you as an early bird or a night owl?
  • 100% an early bird! I hop out of bed bright and early, regardless of the time I went to bed. I can also be a night owl when the right occasion calls for it, but I literally don’t know how to sleep in.
  • Favorite restaurant or hang out?
  • It changes frequently, but I’m currently loving the underground vibe & creative menu at Blind Tiger, an Asian fusion restaurant in Oakland.
  • Famous person (living or dead) you’d most like to meet?
  • Robin Williams, whose humor always reminded me of my dad. Or I’d like to meet my favorite Robin Williams character, Mrs. Doubtfire who served as my inspiration during my nanny years – firm yet loving.
  • What’s your mantra?
  • Love people, use things. Because the opposite never works.
  • What’s your most treasured possession?
  • The ring my mom gave me when I turned 15 years old. I opted out of having a quinceañera to avoid the headache that comes with the traditional ceremony, so my mom gave me a ring to commemorate my “coming of age”.
  • What would you tell your 16-year old self?
  • Stop looking to “find yourself” – you’ll always be growing and adapting and that’s a great thing.

I was born and raised in Richmond, California. As a child, my mom would bring me to Oakland for a “day-trip” which usually consisted of a visit to Fairyland, the Oakland Zoo, or to Lake Merritt to feed the birds. I recall looking up at the old brick buildings that surround the lake and being in awe. These experiences led to my love for Oakland’s architecture and community, which drove me to move here after graduating from UC Davis. Although I loved the small quaint town of Davis, there’s no place like home.

Before getting into real estate, I was a nanny in Oakland for nearly five years. I loved every minute those little girls and I shared. Real estate allows me to continue helping families, but in a different way. Instead of caring for their little ones, I want to help families find their perfect home. My former employers have become like family to me, which I emulate with all my clients.

At Abio I am honored to work alongside an outstanding team which consists of Cameron Platt (the resident recovering attorney) and Nicole Platt (the top communicator), all while being backed by an in-house designer, multiple support staff, and an array of contractors and stagers. We are dedicated to open communication, honesty, and a truly collaborative approach. My clients receive my wholehearted attention, enthusiasm, and an entire team who have their back.
