Growing up in Southern California, I have been involved in real estate since 1977. Starting out my real estate career in Hawaii, I sold townhouses for a large developer on the island of Oahu. In 1984, I relocated to San Francisco and joined a firm selling both residential and income properties. However, after a few years of living in the "windy city by the bay", I longed for more sun and less hustle and bustle. So, in the early nineties, I moved to the wine country and purchased a home with some land. In Sonoma, I developed my first horse breeding facility, and in 2000, I relocated to beautiful Nevada County. Living and working for almost 20 years in this special community, I've had the opportunity to make some wonderful personal and business relationships with some of the greatest people on our planet...
Up-to-date with the most recent and available properties, trends in the marketplace, and marketing strategies, I regularly attend training seminars to stay current with the ever-changing real estate industry. Blessed with an excellent work ethic, I'm friendly, professional and offer the highest level of service available. Listening to your needs, I provide sound advice along with skillful negotiation techniques. In addition, I keep my clients informed of all important aspects of their transactions from start to finish.
Due to my years of experience in the real estate industry, I'm able to give my buyers and sellers the up-most care. And, as an avid equestrian most of my life, my knowledge of real estate in the equine community is definitely a plus for the horse enthusiast!
A top-producing agent in Nevada County and a member of the Nevada County Association of Realtor's "Master's Club", I am also affiliated with Placer, Sutter, Yuba, Sacramento, San Francisco and the greater Bay Area Counties Multiple Listing Services (MLS).
