Q&A

  • Would someone describe you as an early bird or a night owl?
  • More of a night owl, though not extreme. I enjoy mornings the most after I’ve had my morning coffee!
  • Favorite restaurant or hang out?
  • I love to hang out on my back deck with good friends having a glass of wine and enjoying the sun setting over San Francisco.
  • Famous person (living or dead) you’d most like to meet?
  • Chef Gordon Ramsay, for a cooking lesson and to find out if he is really that outrageous in “real life”.
  • What’s your mantra?
  • Moderation is for monks!
  • What’s your most treasured possession (besides your phone!)?
  • I know a dog is not really a possession, but she is what I treasure most in my life. But what would I grab besides her if I had to evacuate my home? I’d be putting my Christopher Burkett original photographs in the car.
  • What would you tell your 16-year old self?
  • Why do you keep misbehaving when you get caught every time?!
  • Funniest/most interesting thing you’ve ever found in a house you’ve helped someone buy or sell?
  • It was definitely the collection of Barbie and Ken dolls displayed in various compromising positions – to this day I giggle thinking about it!

REALTOR®

Using my rich knowledge of the wonderfully diverse East Bay neighborhoods, I’ve been bringing buyers and sellers together since 2002. My greatest joys are handing buyers keys to their dream homes and guiding sellers through a smooth, profitable process.

I understand that buying or selling a home in today’s market is exciting, challenging, and one of the biggest financial decisions most people will ever make. But I’m here for my clients every step of the way, because – besides being a real estate pro with two decades of experience – I’m part cheerleader and therapist, too!

Whether I’m helping folks with a starter home, a million-dollar estate, or an investment property, clients and colleagues know me as forthright and honest. One agent recently told me her seller accepted my buyer’s offer not because it was the highest bid (it was not!) but because I wrote such a clean and detailed proposal.

I specialize in cutting-edge marketing and excellent negotiation skills. You’ll find I am exceptionally knowledgeable about the vibrant neighborhoods of Oakland and Piedmont, including Montclair, Rockridge, Oakmore, Claremont Hills, and Glenview. I’ve lived in the Oakland Hills for more than 20 years, so I have invaluable connections, including with the best tradespeople for your home improvement needs.

How I got here: After many years in the software industry performing marketing and business development roles, I decided to take my marketing and negotiation skills in a new direction!

More about me: I grew up in northern Wisconsin. No, I don’t miss the winters. Yes, I still cheer for the Green Bay Packers (proud Cheesehead!). I love exploring all the East Bay parks with my rescue dog Jelly Bean. When I’m not real-estating or hiking, you might find me scuba diving somewhere warm.

Above all, you should know I am a fantastic listener, I care deeply about my clients, and I go the extra mile to meet and exceed expectations!
