"When my clients have reached their goals. I consider my job a success."
I work diligently to ensure that all of your real estate needs are met during each stage of the transaction. I employ a transaction coordinator dedicated to the professional handling and monitoring of contract information and dates to ensure a smooth and uneventful path to successful close. I specialize in strategic marketing, and I am known for my attention to detail in preparing and positioning homes for sale. I have a network of proven professionals I call on depending on your needs: lenders, designers, movers, photographers, electricians, painters, house cleaners, carpet cleaners, window cleaners, and many more. In addition to being a realtor, I am an accredited staging professional, and I stage each of my listings at no additional cost. Professionally staged homes sell more quickly and for more money.

When I am not living out my passion helping people meet their real estate needs, I like to keep active in my community. I am especially focused on education and the importance of life-long learning. I have served on the Parent Faculty Board, School Site Council, and I am currently a member of the curriculum committee at the Clayton Valley Charter High School and volunteer on various committees through the school year. Recently I joined a bocce league with my husband and some former clients and serve as the "capo". We play on the beautiful courts at Skipolini's in downtown Clayton.
