A native of Piedmont, California, I attended college in Chico and spent the first seven years following graduation working in marketing with a specialty in aging demographics. But, having grown up as the daughter of a real estate developer, this business is in my blood; you could say that I was raised on "brick and mortar." In 1995, I began my career as a Real Estate Agent with Elmwood Realty & Investments in Berkeley — mastering the art of both residential and investment sales — in the highly regulated Bay Area communities. I haven't looked back since. My talents were recognized when, in 2005, I was offered the opportunity to become the owner of Elmwood Realty. After a number of successful years, I met my husband (owner of the Brewery Gulch Inn), sold my Berkeley brokerage to San Francisco based McGuire Real Estate and relocated to the beautiful Coastal Mendocino and re-started what I love doing most: buying and selling properties for my clients.
I just celebrated my 5-year anniversary with living on the coast and working with Mendo Realty. Within a relatively short period of time, I successfully completed an impressive list of sales for my clients. I am a big believer in presenting my listings to their greatest advantage and this is why I always use professional photography. In today's market, our buyers are primarily coming from out-of-area and you must present in its best light.
In addition to real estate, I am also involved in my family's vineyard in the Anderson Valley. I enjoy performing the duties of a "vineyard ambassador" for wineries that we sell grapes to. In 2012 my husband, father, step-daughter, daughter, and I embarked on a multi-generational adventure and started our own wine label, Fathers and Daughters Cellars — exploring three of the best things in life: fathers, daughters, and wine.
