After more than 25+ years in Silicon Valley in key marketing positions, I ventured out to build a second career in real estate in 2008. Forged by a tough marketplace in 2008-2011, I learned the intricacies of the real estate arena and successfully built a strong business, fueled by referrals and recommendations. Specializing in sellers, small investors and empty-nesters, I am proud to use my skills to smoothly guide a seller through the sometimes-daunting process. Based on the philosophy that a real estate agent is really the guide--not the decision-maker---I work diligently to make sure each client is educated and well-informed about the marketplace, the process and the implications of a sale. This assures that the client can make the important decisions needed to reach their particular goals.
