Luxury Homes and Real Estate - Sotheby’s International Realty

Monterey Peninsula, Northern California

As a realtor, I function as my clients’ trusted advisor. The abundance of information about buying and selling real estate can be overwhelming. My job is to decipher the best path through this maze and present my clients with the most important, necessary, and up-to-date information so they are able to make sound decisions given their options. Because I view real estate as a “helping” profession, I serve as a facilitator, educator, and support to my clients in all aspects of the real estate process. My clients can rest assured that their best interests will never be compromised.

Cultural knowledge for diverse populations entering, leaving, and moving within the Monterey Peninsula is an asset I bring to servicing my clients. I am bi-lingual and bi-cultural and these attributes provide me with sensitivity and flexibility in negotiating successful transactions. I appreciate that every client is as unique as their goals and thus nothing is taken for granted. Honest communication is of utmost importance in dealings with my clients.

As a designated REO (Foreclosure) listing agent for a major bank, I have listed and sold foreclosures nationwide. This role has honed my skills in helping my clients to negotiate transactions in today’s challenging market. Managing systems is integral to my business. Dealings with City and County offices, attorneys, contractors, asset managers, and others in specialized fields is commonplace. Successful coordination of these disciplines is necessary to close a transaction. I am also a certified Short Sale specialist and understand the importance of informing and guiding my clients through this process.

I grew up in Los Angeles and settled in Monterey County 23 years ago. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from UCSC and Master’s degree in Social Work from San Jose State University. Previous to real estate, I worked for the Monterey County Office of Aging and Community Services and prior to returning to school, I spent most of my working years as a legal and executive secretary to attorneys in Southern California and Seattle Washington.
