Thanks to my realtor/developer dad, I’ve been surrounded by real estate my entire life. I grew up going to open houses on the weekends guised as "family fun days” and have lived in over a dozen homes, as my parents like to buy, remodel, and sell our homes. I am passionate about making homes, having volunteered with Habitat for Humanity consistently over the last 20 years (making me really knowledgeable about the construction process), and sharing my own home with foreign exchange students from around the world throughout my life. A home can be a magical place, something that deeply defines who you are and what you can provide for others in your community. This is why I love real estate!
Buying or selling a home is an incredibly significant event, and a lot can happen—especially in San Francisco’s very competitive real estate environment. I pledge to never cut any corners and do everything I can to make your experience the best one possible. My approach to the real estate business will never be "selling" in the traditional sense. My goal is to educate clients to ensure they feel completely comfortable with the decisions being made and to carefully guide them through the process of buying or selling.
In addition to sales, I have experience working in property management—both in leasing and ongoing management needs. Previous to becoming a real estate agent, I worked at Airbnb for 4 years which has provided interesting insight into the short-term rental market. Whether you’re investing in a long-term rental property or hoping to rent out your own home sporadically, I am happy to help develop your best rental strategy. Other previous work experience includes working as a trip leader with Backroads, leading guests on biking and hiking trips all over the world. When you’re searching for the right home and neighborhood, we could always ditch the usual car tour, and do a biking or walking one instead…
We are lucky to call San Francisco and the beautiful Bay Area home! I’ll forever be on a quest to learn as much as possible about this city. Check out my website/guide to the city, alleycatguides.com, which has been compiled over the years through taking hundreds of tourists around San Francisco on off-the-beaten-path tours.
Cheers to homes,
I first was introduced to to this amazing organization in 2012 when I volunteer coached the Girls on the Run team at Malcolm X Elementary School in Bayview. Girls on the Run reminds me how much impact education, positivity, and team dynamics can make in the life of a young girl—and as a result, their entire community. Along with cultivating a passion for healthy behaviors through running, GOTR also addresses issues every girl faces during life, covering topics such as standing up to peer pressure and celebrating self image. Personally, running has always been something I can turn to throughout life’s roller coasters and team sports have always helped enrich my life.
