REALTOR®, SFR, SRES
I’m a “Cali Girl” through and through… I was born in Southern California but moved North to Lafayette at an early age where the San Francisco Bay Area became my “Forever Home.” After graduating from Chico State, I moved to the East Coast to start my corporate career, but it didn’t take too many winters for me to move back. I’ve been fortunate to have lived in some amazing towns such as Pleasant Hill, Palo Alto, Mountain View, Castro Valley and 27 total years in Lafayette.
What I love about Real Estate, is that with each opportunity to help someone achieve their real estate dream, it’s an honor and privilege to be part of the process. My corporate years were spent in the industrial world of petroleum and environmental recycling serving in a variety of industries. While this background may not scream “cozy 4-bedroom, 2 baths home…” having worked both on the operational and marketing sides of business expanded my skill sets to include contract negotiations, sales/service and marketing management including profit/loss budgets which helped when I transitioned into Real Estate in 2005.
Go Team! It seems like yesterday but, seven years have flown by where I’ve had the pleasure to work with my colleague and friend, Larry Jacobs. Our team approach brings balance (and humor) to our personal lives, gives us the ability to be in two places at one time and it offers a higher level of care and service to our clients.
Outside of Real Estate… my husband Leander and I are known for travel. Be it road trips to discover new parts of the United States, exploring the far reaches of the world, sailing the Caribbean, or power boating the inland passage of Alaska. Our priority is our family, so we try to spend time with our families in other states and in Switzerland. We love it when they come to visit us, and we get to be tourists too.
