My mission is to be the trusted real estate advisor that people turn to when they decide it's their time to buy or sell their house.
My belief is that personal commitment; trust, communication and hard work are the
cornerstones of a great real estate transaction. It's all about uncovering my clients' objectives and applying my skills and resources towards realizing their goals. This understanding comes from actively listening to you throughout the entire process - from preliminary meeting through close of escrow - and beyond!
The team concept is a key part of my approach and I maintain an extensive network of trusted advisors, professionals and support staff to bring to bear on any situations we encounter during the process. This includes, among others, lenders, inspectors and contractors. If we need acompetent professional we will find them quick.
I draw from my engineering background to bring organization and clarity to the process. This means that we always remain one step ahead throughout the process and that you are maximally protected by thorough and complete paperwork.
My marketing and fine art experience come to the fore in getting properties sold effectively through detailed market analyses and outstanding professional promotional materials.
Finally, I am a "data hound" and use all the means at my disposal to make sure you have the most current information available informing your decision.
Having personally relocated numerous times in former times, I am particularly sensitive to the concerns and needs of those moving into the Bay Area from other parts of the country. I also maintain an active referral network of dependable agents throughout the United States and internationally for those who are moving here and need to sell their home or who are leaving the Bay area and need dependable contacts wherever they are relocating to.
Here are a few personal tidbits about my personal background. I was born in San Jose and have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, Boston, Switzerland, Italy and The Netherlands. I am a Stanford University graduate and have worked at SLAC and GTE. In addition, I am a professional photography which serves me well in the real estate business for my seller clients. I enjoy sports (Go Cardinal!), hiking, travel, cooking and photography.
