Buying or selling real estate is more than a transaction — it’s about finding a true home. Selling a home represents so much more than an investment. It’s a process that can be filled with emotional and financial stress. Which is why I got into real estate. I take great joy in handling every detail for my clients and supporting them every step of the way. For my clients, I leverage my years of local real estate expertise, my history in the tech industry, and my decades of living in this community. All to make the process less stressful, more successful, and leading to a final result that exceeds your expectations.
