With a career spanning over 25 years in the real estate industry….

Career Experience

My career began in mortgage lending in the late 80’s when the rates were double digits.  I worked several years in lending, both with clients and brokers in Sonoma, Marin and San Francisco counties.   My experience encompasses a real estate sales background, mortgage underwriting, loan origination and private trust deed management.  Most recently added was the certification of design and home staging, which I do with my company Grace Designs SoCo.  My background has given me a level of knowledge and experience that truly sets me apart as a real estate agent and allows me to provide unparalleled service to my clients.

Relationships and Building Business

The real estate industry is a business about building and maintaining relationships. Basically, it is a people business that requires you to care about people and help them achieve their dreams of homeownership or the transitions they may be going through.  Each client seeks something unique to them and it is my job to help get the results they want and make the process as seamless and profitable for them as possible.  Each person has their own story. My sincere belief is that in connecting with people and really getting to know them, you find out what they are looking for and how you can truly help them.

Personal

Originally from Southern California, my family moved us to Sonoma County in 1976.   I attended Piner High School and Santa Rosa Junior College and started my career in the real estate industry.  I most recently spent time in Orange County where I also worked for Coldwell Banker in Newport Beach and started Grace Designs O.C., my home staging and design practice.

Staying active with strength training and yoga is something I am passionate about. I have equal passion for family, especially my two grandchildren and 2 yorkshire terriers.  Being of Italian descent, I have been working on my limoncello recipe for the past 12 years, which just received it’s trademark. I am also an avid writer and blogger and work creating videos and good content for social media.  My dream is to inspire others to make the changes they want but maybe fear, so they can live an amazing life of no regrets.

MY PHILOSOPHY

“I believe that it is most important to provide the kind of service you would want to receive.  Working with someone knowledgeable, experienced and you can trust is the only way to form a relationship that will work to benefit all involved.”

“Holly is a real pleasure to work with when it comes to buying or selling your home. Her knowledge, integrity, and honesty are second to none. You feel comfortable knowing that Holly is with you all the way 24 hours a day . I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else.”
