Associate Broker, REALTOR®, MBA
I came to real estate relatively late in my career, in 2014. Prior to becoming a realtor, I consulted to small businesses and non-profits on strategic execution. In English, that’s developing a deep understanding of their customers’ experiences, on operational, financial, and marketing strategies, and on structuring their organization and leveraging their resources to achieve their goals. In shorter English, that’s what do we do that people need, what have we got to do it with, who should do it, and will we be successful doing it.
Would someone describe you as an early bird or a night owl?
Favorite restaurant or hang out?
Ajanta, Chez Panisse Café, the North Branch of the Berkeley Public Library. The Sea Ranch.
Famous person (living or dead) you'd most like to meet?
Eleanor Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson
What's your mantra?
Lead with love. Move at the speed of trust. Impact, not ego.
What's your most treasured possession (besides your phone!)?
I’m not sure that a living thing is a possession, but my most treasured non-human is my dog Beau. He is my rock and my muse. There is nothing that I can’t sort out if he and I can discuss it while we’re on a hike.
What would you tell your 16-year old self?
Dreams really do come true. Keep dreaming and keep working.
Funniest/most interesting thing you've ever found in a house you've helped someone buy or sell?
Oh, the usual realtor stuff; a panic room, an unsuspecting (i.e. non calendar reading) occupant in a state of deshabille, orange carpet and pink tiles, a garden that makes you forget the rest of the world, an amazing wine cellar – our lives are never dull.
