What was the first thing you wrote on your to-do list for today?:

Buyer follow-up calls.


What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?:

Put it in a spreadsheet.


What is your favorite part about working in real estate in this part of the world?:

The territory we cover is absolutely amazing. Breathtaking views, beautiful drives, and so much acreage to walk!


Tell us about a recent challenge you came upon and how you conquered it.:

There have been hiccups along the way as I transitioned into real estate. But I did what I do anytime a challenge presents itself: look for a solution, keeping in mind that not everyone will be fully satisfied, but knowing that everyone has the opportunity to gain something, whether it’s an experience, freedom, getting to the end of a chapter, or just movement in general, there’s always an opportunity. But above all, especially when faced with challenges, I believe in the importance of being kind and grateful.


What role has mentorship played in your career?:

In every job that I have ever held, there has been a mentor by my side. From education to wineries and vineyards, I have been guided by someone who has had patience and faith in me. I work hard, have learned, and continue to learn so I can one day be a mentor to someone who may need me.


What’s your favorite home design feature that you wish more homes had?:

Outdoor entertaining spaces are a must!


If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose and why?:

Author Laurie Notaro, because I have read all her books and I love her sense of humor! If I’m going out to dinner, I want to make sure it’s with someone who I can share a bottle of wine with and who will make me laugh.


Someone is coming to visit Sonoma/Mendocino/SF County. Where should they go first?:

W Real Estate in Ukiah!


What’s something you’re looking forward to in the upcoming year? (Wedding, vacation, new opportunity, etc.):

My daughter’s Quinceañera is happening this summer! It’s going to be a huge event, with all my friends and family sharing what promises to be a day/evening to remember. There will be dancing, traditional music, a church ceremony, traditional Mexican food, drinks, cake and maybe even karaoke because, why not? This will be the biggest birthday party thrown in my family for sure and I am definitely looking forward to that this year!
