I especially enjoy working with families moving here for the top schools or relocating due to a job transfer. I can provide them the best advice on neighborhoods, schools, and community services as I have been a very active participant  for the past 20 years, as a board member of the Educational Foundation of Orinda,  Miramonte Parents Club,  OASIS (Orindans for Arts Support in Schools), President of the Newcomers' Club, and Chairperson for Orinda Action Day, for which I recently was awarded the Wm. Penn Mott Environmental Award by the city.  I enjoy working with buyers new to the area as I've moved many times-from NY/NJ, Boston, Atlanta, Ft. Lauderdale and Palm Beach, FL.The senior population has very unique needs and I enjoy working with them as buyers and sellers. I earned the designation of SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist) and learned how it’s so important to build trust with the senior and also with the family. I know that I have the patience to work at the senior’s pace and really listen to their concerns and help them to deal with a move which may be difficult for them. As a volunteer driver for Seniors Around Town in Orinda, I enjoy learning about their interests and their past history. I’ve had experience in purchases and sales of condos and co-ops in Rossmoor, the premier active retirement community in Walnut Creek. It’s a very satisfying experience to successfully navigate first time home buyers through the process of home ownership. Since many of them are close to my children’s ages, I feel I can guide them to make good choices, educate them throughout the process, and communicate well with them, often by e-mail and text messaging. My past clients have purchased with FHA and VA loans which are challenging, but are good options for first time buyers.I not only work with buyers, but can advise sellers how to prepare their home to look its best and price it to sell competitively. I’m proud of my negotiating skills and will use them to best represent my sellers’ interests. Having first worked as a banker in corporate trust and then personal trust and estate planning, I know how important it is to be a “fiduciary” for clients.
