Patience – it’s a rare quality in today’s hurry-up world – and a cornerstone of my real estate practice. Time and attention are gifts I give freely – listening while clients share their dreams and goals, then answering their questions and helping them explore their options without pressure. My former positions as a paralegal and civil servant with the Alameda County Superior Court gave me years of experience in assisting people in emotionally stressful situations, often involving property and contracts. And although buying or selling a home is hopefully a happier venture, it still can come with stress. To ensure a successful experience, I utilize my talent for guiding people through unfamiliar and emotional processes, as well as my skill and experience in understanding and explaining contracts, negotiating, working with attorneys, and remaining calm under pressure.
My decision to enter the field of real estate evolved from the joy I have experienced of purchasing and selling my own properties since 1999 – plus my desire to provide a service that helps people achieve their goals. It was time for a switch from being a paralegal and civil servant in a courtroom, to helping make dreams come true.
Real estate is a relationship-based business, and I strive to create client relationships built on trust and confidence. My ultimate goal: a business built entirely upon referrals from clients who are completely satisfied with the professional and caring services they received. When you want an agent who gives freely of her time, attention and expertise, call me! My Service Areas: Hercules, Contra Costa County, Alameda County and all of Northern California!
The Expert by Your Side
When you’re selling: My track record of success means I know how to showcase your house effectively, market and promote it so that it attracts qualified buyers and get it SOLD for the highest price. Throughout the process, I’m with you every step of the way, making sure your questions are answered, all the details are handled expertly, and the entire experience is a positive one.
When you’re buying: My expertise in the local market means I can introduce you to homes that meet your criteria – and notify you immediately of brand new listings. I can advise you on what to look for when viewing a home, so you don’t make a catastrophic mistake, and I can arm you with in-depth details on every property you see. When you find a home you fall in love with, I know how to negotiate effectively so you get that property, at the best possible price. In fact, nothing pleases me more than saying, “The home is yours.”
The Right Real Estate Agent for You
Whether you’re buying or selling, it’s ultimately about realizing a dream. I understand how much the decision will mean to you.

Clients often tell me how much they appreciate my expertise, my willingness to be there with them every step of the way, and my determination to get them the best deal. They also tell me I’m friendly and a pleasure to work with – which is quite a compliment!
