As a Bay Area native, I have extensive knowledge and love of the area. I got my start in the real estate industry 12 years ago, with my primary focus being real estate marketing, interior design, and home staging. Eight years ago, I decided to take my growing passion for homes one step further and get my real estate license. Since then, I have developed a keen sense and skill for both the entire home sale and purchase processes and I have had the pleasure and honor of being a part of a team that has been in the top 1% of all agents in Contra Costa County.
Every step of the home buying and selling process brings me a sense of joy and fulfillment. I have a skill and a trained eye for walking into a home that needs work and seeing the potential it holds. I truly love what I do, and with the collaborative efforts of my long list of contacts, colleagues, and tradesmen, I am able to coordinate every step of the process from landscaping, staging, photography, general remodels like paint and carpet, to tearing a home down to the studs for a whole remodel to ensure my clients get the most streamlined buying or selling experience possible.
