I love working with people who appreciate the diversity, culture, and naturally-beautiful landscape of the East Bay. After working in the financial services industry for a decade in New York City, I moved to the Bay Area in 1993 with my young family so we could hike scenic trails, feel the cool ocean breezes, and enjoy the richness of the vibrant people and marketplaces around town.
I value the human element in our highly-complex and quick-moving real estate transactions. When you hire me, you get a patient ear, a deeply-informed advisor, a creative negotiator and someone to integrate your varied needs into an action plan. I will help you develop a strategy that serves your both short- and long-term needs when buying or selling your home.
I look forward to working with you, whether you are buying or selling, or just looking for an educated estimate of your home in today’s market.
