I became a realtor after buying my own first home thirteen years ago--I was hooked. For most of us, home is where we get a chance to express our creativity, celebrate the small and large occasions, and have a place to come home to at the end of our long, busy days. San Francisco real estate is a moving target. The market is always shifting, always changing, and being excellent in this profession involves diving in. Seeing homes, asking questions, talking to other agents, paying attention. You're likely to find me brainstorming with my design team, zipping off to check out a new property that just came on the market or meeting with clients to walk through a home and discuss possibilities. Understanding the market and being proactive and aggressive on my clients’ behalf are necessary skills for being a great realtor. At the heart of it, what keeps me so passionate about this career is the incredible clients I get to help, my deep love of houses and architecture and my belief in the power of homeownership--as an investment and as the backdrop to a life that you love.
