About Amali SvienAmali’s warm and welcoming
nature stems from her deeply rooted 17 year career in the Hospitality Industry. While managing
restaurants and the events department for a renowned 3 Michelin Star Chef, she developed and
exemplified one of her core values: Commitment.
“A motto that resonates with me is “Be the Bacon” which is based on the ‘American Breakfast’
of Bacon and Eggs; the chicken contributed but the pig was fully committed! Be the Bacon!”
After 10 years with the restaurant group, Amali worked as a Financial Consultant to Restaurants
and Bars in the Bay Area, putting her double Master’s Degree in International Business and
Hospitality Administration to good use.
Finally, she ended up in the wine industry, where she reveled in her position of Director of
Hedonism… i.e. Hospitality. Amali curated guest experiences to mirror the pleasures offered by
the Napa Valley. Additionally, from walking the vineyards to harvesting grapes with vineyard
workers, she became intimate with the various terroirs and regions of the Napa Valley… Amali’s
“I remember purchasing my first home in Napa during a volatile economy. It happened to be a
short-sale and involved a few more hoops to jump through - it was daunting. However, I had the
guidance of a good Sales Agent who patiently walked me through each step. I want to earn the
trust of my clients through my conscientious and compassionate efforts.”
She is grateful to have found a real estate brokerage that celebrates and reflects her commitment
to high standards.
Amali enjoys traveling the world with her husband and 2 kids. They spend every other summer
in Sri Lanka, where Amali is originally from and on the family ranch in Montana where her
husband spent most of his adolescence. She enjoys eating out and trying different foods.
Champagne and caviar are one of her favorite combinations but she also enjoys a big scoop of
Salted Caramel Ice Cream on top of a molten chocolate cake!
