Buying or selling a home is one of the most significant life decisions you can make. Investing in today’s real estate market in Santa Cruz County provides you with the opportunity for home appreciation, while living in a wonderful and charming area with mild weather, farmer’s markets, diverse restaurants, and the Monterey Bay just steps away.
I am on my third career and I love it. Over 20 years of experience in technology and higher education include working for IBM as an Account Systems Engineer in Silicon Valley. That knowledge plus previously teaching in San Jose allowed me to return to teaching at the community college level where I became Dean of Instructional Technology at San Jose City College. These experiences have provided me with the ability to assess needs, analyze possibilities, and recommend solutions. Involvement with technology for many years also enables me to keep up with the rapid integration of technology into real estate. I am a Certified Zipform Trainer and provide training to realtors in our office. I have a proven track record of selling and buying in Santa Cruz and Santa Clara counties. Originally from Willow Glen in San Jose, I am knowledgeable about both counties.
Regular attendance at REALTOR® courses, workshops, and seminars keeps me informed of market trends and current legal issues. My attention to detail and effective negotiating skills help ensure a smooth and successful transaction. My core values of integrity, fairness, and professionalism are demonstrated through my personal commitment to my clients. I care.
