I am passionate about animals, so you will rarely find me without my sidekick Coco and my new labardoodle puppy, Charlie. Sadly my horse George is no longer with us.
Whenever possible I try to represent owners of large country properties. My experience as an avid equestrian and member of the Woodside Trails Committee gives me an advantage over a typical realtor.
I have remodeled literally hundreds of properties and have even built a home from the ground up in Portola Valley, which was over 5500 sq ft and was photographed by Architectural Digest. I understand the regulations unique to each of the towns I work in because of this firsthand experience. This has proven to be very beneficial to my clients.
