I started my career as an attorney at some of the largest law firms in the country, representing Silicon Valley’s tech giants in high-stakes disputes. After years of practicing law, my entrepreneurial spirit led me to launch my own real estate business, where I rediscovered passions: real estate and helping people.
I quickly found clients coming to me frustrated and dissatisfied with the level of service they had received from other realtors. They often felt rushed by realtors who were too busy to give them more than a few minutes of their time, and they felt like just another number. They lost out on homes that they had fallen in love with. They didn’t know what they didn’t know, and they feared they were missing something important.
I made it my mission then to bring the level of service, knowledge, and expertise that is expected of attorneys to my real estate business. I see myself as an advisor, not a salesperson. Acknowledging that I am first and foremost a fiduciary to my clients, it became my priority to never allow a client to feel rushed, overwhelmed, or underserved. As a practicing minimalist, I am a believer in quality over quantity in all aspects of my life and business.
My years of practicing law offer my clients a unique skill set in each negotiation and transaction I encounter. I am focused on protecting them, helping them understand complex data and documents, and guiding them to make informed decisions. My proven process helps bring clients a sense of calm in the midst of what’s often a stressful, overwhelming, and litigious real estate market.
I am a graduate, cum laude, of the University of San Francisco (B.A., Media Studies) and the Santa Clara University School of Law. I am a member of the California State Bar, the National Association of Realtors, the California Association of Realtors, the San Francisco Association of Realtors, and the Hawaii Chamber of Commerce of Northern California (HCCNC). I am an ongoing supporter of the San Francisco SPCA and a dog lover.
When I’m not working, I love reading, writing, exploring the outdoors with my husband and puppy (Nala), redecorating my 1907 home in the Richmond district, and working on my latest home improvement or craft project.
