Starting in the real estate industry in 1987, I began my career in mortgage lending 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 career encompasses underwriting, loan origination, private trust deed management along with property acquisition and sales. Most recently added was the certification of design and home staging, which I do with my company Grace Designs O.C. This experience has given me a level of knowledge that truly sets me apart as a real estate agent. More importantly, I have experienced the fluctuations in the real estate market over the years and have a good understanding the ebb and flow of an industry that constantly changes. It is in keeping up with the changes not only in this industry, but how business is done and being well versed in strategic marketing in this high tech / social media time we find ourselves in.
Relationships and Building Business
The real estate industry is truly a business about building and maintaining relationships. More importantly, each client seeks their own unique result. My belief is in connecting with people and getting to know them, you find out what they are looking for. From that understanding, you can really help them. My goal with everyone of my clients is to listen to what it is they want and get them the results they are seeking. My in depth market knowledge and expertise allows me to provide unparalleled service to my clients.
Originally from Southern California, I spent many wonderful years in Northern California living in Sonoma County. I have been blessed to really enjoy living in 2 of California’s most beautiful places. I still travel north to see friends and family and back east to spend time with my daughter’s family and 2 beautiful grandchildren. I am active with the Greater Irvine Chamber of Commerce and I enjoy my friends here along with staying active with strength training, running and doing yoga. My aim is to also inspire others to keep going after their dreams!
