After spending over 20 years in the field of Interior Design, I felt it was time to transition into Real Estate sales which has proven to be the perfect blend of artistic expression, effective marketing and skillful negotiation. Whether working with buyers or sellers, my passion for creating the best possible outcome is clearly seen in my long list of satisfied clients.
After years of flipping over two-dozen personal homes and assisting hundreds of property owners with various premarket improvements and interior-design projects, I have developed a keen sense of the entire home sale or purchase process.
I approach every search through the eyes of a trained designer to address what is perfect about a property and what is not. We all love “turn-key”, but we rarely find the perfect home, so I can quickly identify changes that I would see fit, while being candid about what should remain “as-is”. Once we find that perfect home, it’s on to the offer process, negotiations and closing the transaction successfully on all accounts.
From making that initial list of value-add, pre-market improvements, I move quickly to ensure that the process of making a property ready for the market is seamless for my sellers. My team of tradesmen have been in my arena since 2001, and have been a big part of my stellar reputation in sales and design throughout the Bay Area. Once all improvements are complete, I personally stage every listing I sell which my clients have found to be extremely valuable. Once the property is “show ready”, I take great pride in launching it with every detail in check while setting new standards of excellence in the field of Real Estate.
Bottom line, working with my buyers and sellers is all about trust, so I consider the opportunity, a true privilege!
