Why did you choose to pursue a career in real estate?
I have always loved looking at houses and thought about what a fun job to help people find their dream home. My favorite part is handing over the keys to my clients and sharing in their excitement.
How do you think your clients would describe you?
I had to reach out and ask a friend. I would hope they would say I treated them like family and looked out for their best interest. Knowledgeable, patient, strong negotiating skills, and willing to go the extra mile. I will take it!
What is your motto?
Treat others how you want to be treated.
What is something most people would never guess about you?
I used to make olive oil soaps, lotions, and sugar scrubs.
What is one thing people must do when they visit Sonoma County?
Come to Healdsburg and check out all the wonderful shops, restaurants, wineries and take a drive to Lake Sonoma. It’s so peaceful and beautiful, bring a lunch or some snacks and enjoy!
What does a perfect day in Sonoma County look like for you?
A road trip around the county checking out new restaurants and local shops with friends.
What’s your favorite way to relax?
Overnight trip to Indian Springs in Calistoga. Sign me up.
