About Me

Most people think I simply sell real estate. But doing so allows me to be all the other things I am too: a listener, a negotiator, a marketing guru, and an all-around creative problem-solver.

I became a founding agent at Paragon in 2004 because I loved the innovative small-business spirit and the no-nonsense approach of this company. Culture and creativity have always been big priorities for me; I originally studied humanities and fashion design. Before I became a real estate agent, I owned a successful apparel company that took me all over the world serving high-profile clients such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Bullock & Jones. You might say I’ve made a career out of bringing a creative outlook to business transactions.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t value tangible results. I’ve helped sellers capitalize on a heated market, netting tens of thousands more than comparable condos in the same building listed by another agent. I’ve also coached luxury buyers through the negotiation process, ultimately saving them hundreds of thousands they were prepared to spend. Whatever the market is doing, success for both buyers and sellers comes from the negotiation skills and experience of their agent.

I’ve now been with Paragon for 13 years, hold the record for Paragon’s highest residential sale ever, was invited to be a founding member of Paragon’ Luxury Collective, and have been consistently ranked in the top 5 percent of San Francisco realtors. I’m also a member of Top Agent Network, the National Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors, and San Francisco Association of Realtors.

Real estate is an intense field, and I work hard to keep my outlook vibrant and inspired. I practice yoga and travel often. Photography is another big passion of mine, and I invite you to follow me on Instagram to see my weekly photographs of the Bay Area and recent travels.
