More About Me

With a competitive and challenging real estate market such as the Silicon Valley, you need a savvy Realtor who knows the true value of your home. Whether you’re buying or selling, you need someone with experience who can make sure your transaction runs smoothly.  

I am not only a licensed Realtor, but I have also been a local Real Estate Appraiser for decades. My interest in real estate started when I moved to the Bay Area from Minnesota (after a short detour in New York!) almost 30 years ago. It was shortly after purchasing my first home that I became interested in real estate valuation.  

As a Real Estate Appraiser, I have the education and experience to help you find the right home. I can spot issues that others may be unaware of, and since I know what lenders will approve, I have the expertise to navigate situations before they occur.  

Additionally, if you are a seller, these same skills benefit you. I have knowledge and experience in Santa Clara County, as well as neighboring counties.  

On a personal note, I am also your neighbor in the Cambrian area of San Jose. I have lived in the Cambrian area with my two children and husband since 1997, and previously resided in Almaden Valley, Cupertino and Sunnyvale.

I left Minnesota in 1986 to become a Flight Attendant for American Airlines, and have always had a passion for the sky.  That is why I became a private licensed pilot in approximatly 1990.  

After building a successful real estate appraisal business, I realized that I could make a difference to my neighbors, and the families around me, by helping navigate the often eclectic Silicon Valley real estate market. My attention to detail and perseverance cause my clients to rave about working with me.  Additionally, I am highly responsive, providing answers to questions, and offering support and advise within minutes.  

My unique skillset and passion for real estate makes me the right choice for your real estate experience.  I look forward to working with you, and am never too busy for your referrals.
