More About Me

Thoughtful. Thorough. Trusted.

A home is so much more than just a place to lay your head -- investing in real estate is all about fostering the community we live in, and that's the driving force behind everything I do. As a real estate investor, consultant and formerly a technologist, I’m experienced in both corporate and small business enterprises and leverage this to bring the highest standard of professionalism, integrity, and care to my clients. This analytical background perfectly complements my creative side to deliver expert guidance and successful transactions. Educating my clients and helping them achieve their goals is what I truly love doing.

My approach starts with thoughtfully listening.  Once I understand your goals and unique circumstance, I take a consultative approach in sharing details about the process we’ll be going through together based on the specifics you’ve shared, coupled with the local neighborhood you’re in or planning to move to. 

As a third generation native Californian, born and raised in Santa Clara Valley, I offer my clients first-hand insights into the wonderfully varied neighborhoods in our area. Leveraging this thorough knowledge of the neighborhood and market, I commit to my clients to be their trusted advisor; someone that will communicate frequently and have enormous dedication to always putting their needs and wants ahead of my own.

With my experience in real estate coupled with a Bachelors of Science degree in Chemistry from San Jose State University, and 27 years experience at IBM in technology and executive sales, I offer a unique level of negotiation and project management expertise and experience for my clients, helping them to achieve the best possible pricing and terms for their home purchase or sale. I also stay personally involved to be sure we meet every commitment and creatively solve any hurdle that comes along.

I am passionate about giving back to the communities where I live, work, and invest. I currently serve and volunteer my time with the following organizations:  

  • Sereno Group’s 1% for Good - committee member

  • Silicon Valley Association of Realtors - Council member and Global Business Council member

  • Los Gatos Affordable Teacher Housing Project - community member

  • Voices of Hope Humanitarian Choir and Instrumentalists - singer and Secretary on the Board of Directors
