Local Expertise. Global Connections.
I have been in the real estate environment since childhood as my father was a broker who built a successful multi-office agency with as many as 19 agents. I earned a degree in Business Administration, with a concentration in Real Estate and Marketing, but with interest rates topping 17% at the time, I decided to postpone my real estate career temporarily for a career in technology. For 20+ years I evangelized emerging (bleeding edge, actually) technology and implemented innovative sales and marketing concepts at major corporations such as Toshiba, Samsung and Siemens as well as a few tech start-ups. Starting out as an individual contributor and then working my way up to leadership roles such as VP Sales and National Sales Manager, I honed my people and negotiation skills. Parlaying those rich experiences, I thoroughly appreciate the much greater degree of satisfaction derived from helping so many clients in their real estate needs in Napa and the surrounding area. Now that I am not traveling 3-5 days a week, I am allowed to fully engage in the local community! I sit on multiple local non-profit boards, co-founded a local business referral group, www.NapaBusinessAdvantage.com and served for three years on the Council of the North Bay Association of REALTORS® - Napa Chapter as as the President Elect, President and Past President. Applying the same work ethic, high integrity and professionalism utilized in the corporate world is paying dividends for my clients. Being a certified Life Coach gives me an edge in being an effective communicator. My clients have often told me their entire experience of buying a Napa home or selling their Napa home was much more enjoyable than they anticipated. In addition to the importance of protecting my clients and optimizing their value, which is paramount, I like to have fun during the process!
