Q&A

  • Would someone describe you as an early bird or a night owl?
  • Night Owl. Though, I am easily convinced to hit the ground running as long as there is coffee waiting for me on the other side.
  • Favorite restaurant or hang out?
  • Hands down my kitchen where I love to cook for family and friends and then sit down and relax with a bottle or two of our very own Harrell Family Wine which we grow, produce and bottle at my parents house in Alamo.
  • Famous person (living or dead) you’d most like to meet?
  • Living: Kelly Clarkson – yes, real answer. She is hilarious! Dead: Lewis and Clark – I want to hear their stories about seeing the western frontier for the first time!
  • What’s your mantra?
  • As a former Boy Scout – “Always be prepared”
  • What’s your most treasured possession (besides your phone!)?
  • My Camera! I love documenting my travels and life experiences through photography, whether on a hike around Mount Diablo or on safari in Africa!
  • What would you tell your 16-year old self?
  • Don’t sweat the small stuff; your life turns out pretty amazing.
  • Funniest/most interesting thing you’ve ever found in a house you’ve helped someone buy or sell?
  • There was one house with a bomb shelter, people thought that it was very creepy, a hard sell!
