My son asked me what career I would have if I wasn't a realtor, and I said I couldn't think of anything else I would rather be doing! It's been 19 successful years of representing buyers and sellers in all parts of the City, and I am proud to be consistently recognized as a top agent in San Francisco and in Sotheby's International Realty.
Before starting in real estate, I had two career experiences that contributed to the success I have today. Starting as a management trainee for Hyatt Hotels, I did EVERYTHING - made beds, bussed tables and checked in guests on the midnight shift - and because of it, I developed a 100% customer service focus. Later, I managed mergers and acquisitions activity for Bank of America and Intel Corporation, where I learned to be a calm presence in the midst of controlled chaos and gained respect as a no-nonsense, solutions-driven negotiator.
I live by the phrase, "do what you say you will do", and I ensure my work reflects it every day. My clients know I can navigate them through our sophisticated housing market to get the deal done, and they can rely on me for a multitude of resources - from referrals to local vendors to trusted real estate advisors around the globe. I am well respected in the brokerage community, which is a very important consideration for you since the person you hire will essentially become your face and voice when communicating on your behalf with buyer and seller agents.
I am deeply committed to my work and my family - husband Dennis, teenage son Declan and two spoiled cats, Indie and Dixie. I am a fourth generation Californian and a 34-year resident of San Francisco. With my husband, we have raised our son in the City and appreciate its beauty along with its frustrations and opportunities.
In my spare time I am a passionate USTA tennis player and NorCal committee member, a dedicated San Francisco Parks Alliance board member and a University High School parent volunteer. If there is any time left over, I attempt to get through my stack of books on the nightstand.
