BACKGROUND:

I lived in the Bay Area my whole life, living in 11 different cities. Before I received my license, I worked in many positions in the banking industry, but customer service mainly. On my days off, I enjoy outdoor activities, short weekend vacations, visiting family and friends, and learning about the history of the places I visit. Life is a blessing and every moment is precious!

WHY REAL ESTATE:

I've wanted to be a Realtor since I was 20. Touching family, friends and peoples lives by helping them with their largest investment is very rewarding. They put their tuste in me to help them sell their highest investment - I intern want them to get the highest sales price for their home.

Plus, when raising a family it provided flexibility. Now that my children have grown, I enjoy through the lives of others the experience of home buying and selling.
