As a California native, I have had an opportunity to live in wonderful cities scattered across the Bay - Los Gatos, San Jose, Morgan Hill and currently Campbell – and I love the unique culture and sense of community that each city has to offer. We have distinct benefits here that make this an amazing place to settle down and raise a family. Our geography alone sets us apart; from the beaches of Santa Cruz to the mountains of Lake Tahoe to the vineyards of Napa and Sonoma, we have just about every possible recreational activity at our fingertips. For these reasons and much more, my family and I will always call the Bay our home.
That being said, I understand that the need to move is an emotional life decision that can cause a tremendous amount of stress for the whole family. As I was growing up, my family spoke of their memories and stories of California and how it was the best decision they made to settle down here. This experience has given me an appreciation for the importance of family, a secure place to settle down, and I always approach my work with sensitivity to the whole family. Now, as the mother of a teenager, the importance of finding a home for my clients has further deepened.
My method of working with clients is holistic; I spend time getting to know what is important to them as a family and I make sure that we address those needs. It’s not only about finding the right home but about the right neighborhood, the right culture, the right access to activities that will enhance their lives. Silicon Valley is such a diverse and vast place the choices can seem overwhelming to a newcomer. My job is to reveal my client's true needs and simplify the search process so that they can focus on their family’s happiness and adapt to new roles at work. My commitment to my clients does not end with a lease signed or a home purchased. I always provide ongoing support as a friend, concierge, and advisor as clients get adjusted to their new surroundings. From hairdressers to kitchen remodeling, I’m here to help them find what they need.
Throughout the years I have developed quite a “Rolodex,” and between my connections and those of my fellow Sereno Realtors, there is a very good chance I can help them find anything they are looking for. My affiliation with the Sereno provides me with a strong support system – from trustworthy and experienced upper management and talented in-house marketing to our well-reputed legal counsel representation. The supporting team at Sereno lays the foundation for my success and enhances my ability to provide superior service to my clients. I enjoy what I do tremendously and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and care as my clients embark on this exciting new journey and chapter in their lives.
