My clients'' real estate needs and expectations become my personal commitment. Because I have founded, managed and sold two market analysis firms in Silicon Valley, my clients appreciate my extensive business skills and market analysis of real estate opportunities. I also offer them detailed knowledge of Bay Area properties as I have lived here for over 20 years. I can give in depth knowledge of property values community by community and street by street. My clients know they will achieve the success they want in real estate transactions. My real estate transaction services involve market analysis, valuation, pricing, guidance in lending, negotiation and execution. My skills in these areas developed as I founded, merged and sold two Silicon Valley market analysis firms. This experience benefits my clients in both buying and selling as transactions are grounded in solid business practice with emphasis on execution and desired results. In real estate with Keller Williams and the 2013 Chair of the Palo Alto Real Estate District, my business and personal experience give me familiarity with a range of communities. I work broadly from San Francisco to San Jose and in Fremont and Newark in the East Bay. Given our current market, I have become certified in the complex procedures of short sales and REOs (Bank Owned properties). I am an Affiliate of the American Institute of Architects. These types of connections can produce opportunities for buyers and sellers, investors, builders and designers. With a PhD in Cross-Cultural Anthropology, I also have certification in international real estate with the National Association of Realtors, CIPS. This affiliation makes me part of a network of 1500 agents working worldwide. We can offer complete internet communication both nationally and internationally.
