  • I started my real estate career in 1980 in New Jersey where I lived and worked for five years when I relocated to St.Louis, Missouri and worked from 1985 to 1993 for a small local brokerage. In 1993 I started working for Colwell Banker in St. Louis and in 1997 decided to move back to my hometown of San Jose, California. I have been a top producer at the San Jose Main office now for 5 years.
  • I have a B.A. in English obtained at San Jose State as well as a secondary teaching credential (also obtained at San Jose State). I attended real estate school in New Jersey where I first obtained my license, then Missouri where I obtained a broker's license and then again in California to get my current real estate license.
  • My professional philosophy is simple: do the right thing! My partner and I live by this philosophy which has brought us much repeat business and some wonderful friends.
  • I grew up in Willow Glen and attended San Jose State University where I obtained a bachelor's degree in English followed by a secondary teaching credential. I married, moved to St. Louis where I taught high school for three years in an inner city school which turned out to be a wonderful experience. When we moved to New Jersey I went into real estate and have been in real estate since 1980 in three different states. After my divorce, I decided to move back to my home state of California where I have been happily selling real estate since 1999.
