You can't say Realtor, without REAL
Life is short, so laugh...A LOT
I believe that anyone has the ability to participate in the real estate market. By doing so, you build stability, safety and security. It remains one of the largest source of wealth creation and upward mobility if you are willing and able to jump through some hoops.. and there are hoops! From understanding your credit, to understanding loan options, and purchase options, there are many ways to slice it. My role is to empower you by demystifying the realm of real estate for my clients. Education is power.
2022, Year of the Tiger
My husband took this headshot in May 2020, just after we closed our nonprofit project post COVID. Our landlord gave us the boot and we we shut down our business to move in with my mom. Life felt like a real bummer. As I was getting ready to dust off my real estate license after a break, a new headshot was in order - it just so happens my dog was taking a giant crap behind me. Unbeknownst to me my husband humorously captured the moment.
WHAT'S YOUR SECRET SAUCE? My expansive network enables me to open doors for my clients on both sides of the property equation. I am extremely client focused and thus, I utilize technology to empower the customer at all stages of the process. I’ll guide you every step of the way, check out some of my search tools in the navigation bar or my collection of market reports.
WHAT ELSE DO YOU DO? In my spare time, I teach trauma-informed Yoga and Masters level courses on Real Estate Fundamentals, conduct Social Emotional Learning research and run a small SaaS business that caters to start-up phase entrepreneurs. I have a toddler and a husband and a garden that constantly needs tending. My hands are busy, my heart is full and I am fortunate to still be able to give back.
2020, Year of the Dog Poop
I believe in taking hardship with laughter and lots of it.
If there is anything the post pandemic world has drilled into me, life is short, and sometimes it can suck and it's also OK that it does. We move on and eventually laugh. I strive to be authentic, real and use laughter to release the pressure valve. This is the approach I take in working with clients, other agents, and vendor partners. And we get some incredible results because of it.
WHY IS IMPACT A CORE VALUE?
I am a deep community connector with both for-profit and nonprofit start up experience.
Most importantly, a desire to make meaningful social impact in the world. While holding a CA Real Estate license for over 15+ years, I've earned two master's degrees, developed analytics skills at an elite risk management consulting firm and refined the ability to quickly build and assess risk in a fast paced Bay Area "unicorn." One of the first 100 unicorns at the time. Today, there are over 1000 unicorns and counting.
As industry outsiders, my partner and I successfully bootstrapped and launched the nation's first tuition-free private boarding non-profit program in which we raised a total of $1M in donations. The array of partnerships developed along with the real estate business acumen acquired in taking transactions from "soup to nuts."
The word "impact" represents a core value for me, as I am a mission-motivated professional with real business and entrepreneurship experience, not afraid to think and execute.
