Thank you for viewing my website..! Real estate is a business of personal relationships and I'm happy to share some details of my lifelong personal experience and business here in the North Bay. Life continues to be great in Marin County and I've never relocated after having been born and raised here. My mother and father settled into San Anselmo in 1952, I was born in 1955, and I attended Brookside Elementary and Drake High Schools. We had sooo much fun growing up in such a slow paced, beautiful and fun County.
I was off to University of California, Davis in 1973 and graduated in 1977 with an Environmental Planning degree. Following a month skiing in Utah I returned to an entry level Park Ranger position with the fledgling Marin County Open Space District. Fantastic job experience, training and advancement led me to a change, a completely new and different career - real estate sales..!
My clients always compliment me on my experience and knowledge of my territory. I've been selling real estate in Marin and Sonoma and the Bay Area counties since 1987. I feel like I've done it all - land, homes, condos, leases, short sales, foreclosures, hot markets, cold markets, buyers, sellers, first time buyers and seniors too. It's hard work and super rewarding to be able to serve such a wide variety of clients, and I'm still going strong!
I cherish my career, I have a beautiful and talented 28 y.o. daughter and fantastic home life. I am physically active and healthy, I've traveled in Europe, Canada, Central America, Mexico and throughout the USA. Many of my childhood friends are still in Marin. Together we hike Mt. Tamalpais, ski the Sierras, surf the Pacific and motocross the dirt trails in Tahoe and Mendocino.
I always have a building, remodeling or landscape construction project going - I am completely hands-on. My most recent purchase of a vintage 1907 home in San Rafael will keep me busy for years. This property is on the City Historic Register, I just finished rebuilding the entire interior, and this year I will continue on the gardens. All types of edible and horticultural gardening are my hobbies. Marin County, Mt. Tamalpais and regional histories are my favorite pastime.
Professionally I'm always ready, trained and equipped for your call, text or email. Together we will address your real estate needs and questions in a professional and confidential manner. Thanks again for checking me out, I look forward to hearing from you.

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
