Having lived in the Santa Clara Valley all of my life, I bring expertise and experience to your home search. I love living in Santa Clara Valley and I love what I do, helping families find their place in this wonderful community

My services include buyers, sellers, investors and bank owned homes. I am a full time, full service realtor. This is my career and my business. I realize that you are busy with your everyday life and buying and selling property isn't something you do every day.

For the last 9 years I have been assisting my clients navigate through the sometimes complex market conditions that exist today and the challenges of finding "the dream home or investment property." I will advise and negotiate on your behalf. I make your goals and interest my responsibility, and my client's best interest always comes first.

I like to sit down with buyers first to find out what they are looking for. Also to inform the first time buyers what to expect throughout the transaction, strategize a smooth transition for move up buyers and look at ROI and cash flow with investors.

Next I preview properties so that when I show properties, those properties are the best ones to fit my client’s needs. There is never any pressure to buy, but once we have found the right property and you have made the decision it is the right one, I go full out to help you get that property.
