A passion for homes and the people who live in them is why I love what I do. To me, what makes a home a home is all that resides within its four walls. Home is where we love, laugh, relax and dream.
Our vibrant city is filled with architecture that is as diverse and beautiful as its people. Drawn to homes that will stand the test of time, I love properties with historical appeal, those with cutting edge, contemporary aesthetics and those bungalows that simply feel like “home.”
I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where I developed an enduring love for its people, the Pittsburgh Steelers and its beautiful terrain. I graduated from Vassar College and came west to this beautiful city by the bay. San Francisco has been home for thirty years and continues to amaze and seduce me. I have worked, volunteered, fallen in love, married and raised three wonderful sons here.
I love…my husband, my three sons, family, friends, my dog Rooney, my home, walking my dog in the Presidio and along Crissy Field and Baker Beach, reading, sports, food and history. I am especially happy when nature grants San Francisco one of those rare, sunny, warm days!
Real estate in San Francisco is as dynamic and unique as the City and its occupants. Everyone deserves a partner as they navigate the complex world of buying and selling real estate. And, you deserve the benefits that I bring to my clients.
As a luxury property specialist, top producer and a member of Top Agent Network, I bring opportunities not readily available to most buyers and sellers. My listings reach local, national and international markets and quickly achieve high final sale prices. My buying clients discover opportunities that give them an edge in today’s competitive market.
Tenacious and patient, I expertly guide you through what is often a major financial transaction and emotional journey. Smart and laser-focused, I ensure less stress for you throughout the entire process by preparing carefully, managing all of the various pieces and people, and successfully completing your sale or purchase.
An effective communicator and a professionally trained negotiator, I negotiate strategically on your behalf.
I take my fiduciary responsibilities seriously and protect you and your interests. Honest and forthright, I tell you what you need to know – even if you don’t want to hear what I am saying.
It seems like a simple concept but it is paramount to how I run my business. I respect you and your needs, goals, decisions, timing, privacy and property. I will bring data, experience and knowledge to you but will never forget that this sale is about you and not about me. Your privacy and confidentiality is a priority.
