Helping you beyond start to finish
I have lived in Contra Costa County my entire life; born and raised in Pittsburg, then moved to Antioch once out of high school. I raised my son in Antioch and when he married and started a family of his own, my husband and I moved to Brentwood. I really enjoy what our area has to offer; beautiful homes, community activities for families and adults, restaurants, shops, local grown produce, wineries to name a few. I am not just familiar with the areas I've lived in, the areas I cover have extended to all our surrounding cities and I've made it my mission to know as much about those areas as I
do about my "home towns".
I began my real estate career in the early 1990's and have experienced many changes in the real estate industry, from traditional sales, to short sales, to bank owned properties, market value highs and market lows, not to mention all the changes in the lending guidelines. I've learned a lot, I've changed a lot and I continue to do so with continuing education, experience and a willingness to always grow. One thing that has never changed is what has always meant the most to me and why I chose my career in real estate in the first place which is to help others and share their excitement when buying or selling; it was such a fun experience for me when I purchased my homes. Over my 20 years in the business I learned there are many ups and downs for all of us and sometimes selling a home was not the "dream" but can come with a heavy heart. I've experienced the ups and downs with my clients, had a few of my own and I have come to realize that not all transactions are happy ones but I am still helping, by providing valuable information and my knowledge and experience that allows my clients to make good, educated decisions. The feeling I get when clients express their appreciation and are able to move forward with their lives is
I feel extremely lucky that I have been able to make real estate my lifelong career and I have my past clients, my family and my friends to thank for making that happen for me. Their referrals have kept me going even in the hardest market times. My goal is to always focus on those I am helping at the time and I am able to do just that. In fact, because my business has been based on referrals, I don't have to spend my time looking for other business while I'm working with and helping my current clients in their search for a home or selling a home; I am beyond grateful for the support! I want to continue to run my business in such a way that while I am working with you, you are so happy with my services, you are also referring others who may need my help. I know that can only happen by providing top notch service to my clients so they feel good about recommending me to their family, friends and co-workers, knowing I will provide
that same level of service and professionalism to them as well.
