When I was little, I dreamed of living in a good home. It didn’t need to be large. A peaked roof cottage would do, with a front yard and maybe a dog on a tree-lined street in the kind of town where neighbors would drop by for a visit and you knew the postman by name.

I started selling real estate in the Haight Ashbury in 1986 and bought my first piece of real estate two years later: a Marina Style set of flats in San Francisco’s NOPA District. It was nothing like what my younger self had in mind, but it was all mine, and I could paint the walls any color I wanted, finally get a cat and never worry again about my landlord kicking me out.

Because I believe a good agent should invest in their product, I converted my little building into three condos and trading each one into a new real estate adventure. Residential income properties remain a specialty for me and I love talking about how they can be leveraged into sound financial investments.

30 years and hundreds of deals later, my smart, funny clients are comfortably ensconced in homes that reflect their best selves. To learn more about who I am and how our SFRealEstateBuzz team works, you can visit us at, follow at , call us at 415-577-0809 or email us at
