Prior to residing in the greater Bay area, Meg spent her earlier years in Canada, France, the East Coast, and the Southern states. She has been a resident of California for the past 35 years, and much of that time has been in the East Bay. Having begun her real estate career on the peninsula, Meg worked for some of the top builders, specializing in selling distinctive properties from Woodside to San Francisco. Meg relocated to the East Bay in 1989, and has called Danville her home since that time. Married with a daughter and two sons, Meg's enjoyment comes from spending time with her family, traveling, music, exploring new wineries and restaurants, interior design, and, of course, satisfied clients. Prior to selling real estate, Meg managed a West Coast division of a national engineering firm. It was there that she developed a passion for real estate, as the company's consistent growth created the need for replacement facilities.
