Unlocking doors to make dreams a reality.
As a kid I always had my head in a book. Though I began my career in law looking to make a positive difference in peoples’ lives, I quickly realized that real estate held the key, pardon the pun, to my professional calling.
It turns out I have a passion for real estate! A licensed Realtor since 2005 I soon joined the Million Dollar Club, selling an average of more than $16M per year. I focus on exceeding my clients’ expectations. Whether handling a purchase, a sale, probate, an investment or 1031 exchange, a potential flip, or a lot, I draw on extensive local knowledge and honed negotiation skills. I was consistently ranked in the Top 10 Agents and #1 in Northern California at my prior company.
At Highland Partners, I use my core strengths daily:
- Stellar communication creates great results for clients. I love to negotiate on their behalf.
- I make the dream of home ownership a reality! Nothing beats handing a first-time buyer those keys…
- Clients count on me to navigate calmly through challenging situations. I especially like working with seniors.
Serving on the Board of the Associated Real Property Brokers I advocate for democracy in housing. In 2018 I received the 2018 Realtist of the Year Award, an honor that reflects my commitment to community. When not making deals, I mentor young men and women who are interested in pursuing a real estate career. I also volunteer with Defy Ventures, a non-profit working in the prisons to teach important re-entry skills to men about to rejoin their families and friends. And the Oakland Private Industry Council is where I offer workforce training and job placement support by providing mock interviews and coaching. Let’s face it, I’m a motivational teddy bear.
I am loyal to the fight against breast cancer, and support ongoing autism research. These issues have touched lives close to me. As an ordained Deacon in the church I know what matters to my neighbors and friends: kindness and honesty. It’s no surprise that my real estate practice is one of integrity and authenticity.
Staying on top of my education is key. Early on I earned an MBA, and I regularly update my professional toolbox; I recently completed a Harvard course on Business Analytics. In my remaining free time, I enjoy cooking with family and friends, or spending time near a beach. Rio is a favorite get away where I can be near the water, in a boat, riding a wave, diving or snorkeling. My favorite foods come from the sea, too: gumbo, crab, and shrimp. Top it off with some of my peach cobbler, and we’re good!
I look forward to collaborating with you. Let’s unlock your dream today.
