Prior to selling real estate, I was a vice president of sales for two internet start-up companies that were acquired by publicly traded companies. During this tenure, I traveled over one million miles over a twelve year period. Like most road warriors in northern California, I found it hard to believe that I spent so much time away from home and life in the beautiful Oakland hills. Searching for a career whereby I never had to travel on an airplane or commute long distances to work, I carefully planned to start my career in real estate. Real estate was not entirely new to me as I sold real estate in Houston, TX during the early 1980's while attending graduate school.
To me, success also means giving back to the community from where my money comes from and that means supporting the Oakland public schools in my neighborhood and also to the Piedmont Schools. I underwrite the Crocker Highlands fourth graders trip to the Gold Country each Fall as well as supporting the annual Spring auction, the walk-a-thon and the Crocker Highlands Home & Garden Tour with all proceeds supporting the school. In addition I support the Piedmont Schools in various fundraisers for the elementary schools and the senior prom. I feel that education and the local schools are the cornerstones for all of the communities in Oakland, Piedmont and Berkeley. Giving back to the communities I serves is paramount to my business and success.
Continued success is a top priority for me and coaching with a national real estate coach is an integral part of my growth and planning for the future. Every Monday morning I coach with nationally acclaimed real estate coach Tom Ferry along with fourteen other top agents in the United States.
"Working with other top agents in the country enhances my abilities to manage my growth and it is helpful in bringing new ideas and solutions to the table. Coaching prepares me to manage my growth through planning and execution. Being held accountable with my one on one coaching also makes me stay on target for achieving my quarterly and annual goals."
I am brilliantly supported by a team of professionals at Sotheby's including my longtime personal assistant, Katie Murray. In order to provide better service to my sellers and new buyers at my Sunday Open Houses, I have hired a buyer's agent to my team. Nicole Tamayo joined me in December 2009 and will be highly visible at Sunday Opens and available to meet new clients and introduce them to the wonderful way of life in Oakland, Piedmont and Berkeley.
Feel free to call me directly for all of your real estate needs. I will be happy to give sellers a private consultation on the value of your home. For buyers, my team is available to show you property in a very timely manner.
