Hi. I have lived in Aptos since 1995 and have loved every minute of it! Prior to moving ‘over-the'hill' I grew up in Cupertino, earned my BA degree in Psychology and my teaching credentials from UCLA, and my Masters in Business from San Jose State University.
I worked 20 years in the high-tech world in Marketing and in Finance and I designed and built my own home in Cupertino.
I love people and I love numbers so Real Estate is a perfect fit for me.
I am a Top Producer in Santa Cruz County in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
I have helped Buyers and Sellers with upsizing, downsizing, finding estate properties, beachfront bungalows, homes for children, homes for grandchildren, homes for selves, condos, mobile homes and everything in-between. I have sold properties ranging from $87,000 for a 1 bedroom condo to $1,629,000 for an Aptos estate home.
I have two children, Lauren and Bret, whom I love dearly. Bret is still at home but driving so never really home! I enjoy golf, jogging and mountain biking -- and painting, dancing, and singing too!
I currently live in a beautiful Aptos forest town home a mile from the beach. I understand all the joys and pitfalls of association living and I serve on the board of my Homeowners Association. I am an active non-profit volunteer and have enjoyed working for Friends of the Del Mar, the Santa Cruz Film Festival and the Santa Cruz Art League
I love working with BUYERS – showing properties and getting the very best deals for my clients is a really fun part of the job!
I love working with SELLERS – driving a project through to completion is very fulfilling!
