Partner, Associate Broker, SRES
I’ve been passionate about real estate since before I was old enough to actually sell or list a home! I was born and raised in Moraga, and formally began my real estate career in 2001 after I realized that I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Since then, I’ve crafted my career and created relationships that lead me to the same conclusion: I absolutely love what I do!
My clients keep me in this business. They drive me to be better every day and I want to make sure they’re taken care of and always get the best results. Getting to know so many different kinds of people is an added bonus.
People who work with me are going to find that I’m personable, never pushy, and I can play ball with the best (and toughest) of agents. But the one thing I will never do is intentionally burn any bridge. I believe that while a deal may close, the relationship doesn’t. That means that many of my clients also become long-term friends.
My keys to success? It’s pretty simple: respect the people you work with, focus on keeping clients happy, and be open to learning something new – especially if it can help make this business easier! I’ve always dreamt of building a company that has an open, healthy and positive culture, and is truly focused on the client. I want Abio to be that company and for everyone who works with us to experience that, regardless of who they are or what they need.
But as passionate as I am about this business, you have to have some balance. For me, that comes with spending time with my partner Tammy, daughter Colette and lil’ dog Bogie, and getting outdoors to ski, bike, hike, or even discover the next great restaurant.
