About John

My career has been defined by a commitment to the highest standards of professionalism and exuberant client service. I am proud to be a part of a company that shares the same attributes.

As an accomplished luxury service and sales individual with award winning proven success, I offer 14+ years of real estate industry experience. My interest in real estate sales grew out of my work as a real estate paralegal in Southern California. After working under an attorney for a land developer, I moved to the East Bay in 97. I have spent my career acting as a dynamic client advocate; demonstrated through anticipating my clients needs, skilled contractual negotiations, and exceptional attention to all details.

My family roots are in Seneca Falls NY and I grew up in the suburbs of Detroit. After attending Northwestern University in Evanston, IL I knew I was a displaced CA native and moved west in 86! I am passionate about the arts, all things Deco, Mid-Century Modern architecture, and have a personal flair for Contemporary Italian mens fashion. I love to bake, entertain family and friends, and consider Palm Springs my second home.

My husband, Gene and I (along with our dogs Smokey and Coco) are proud to call Oakland home. It is with immense appreciation for the diversity of our city that we commit ourselves to getting out and being part of the greater community every day.

I am so very fortunate for the life I lead. Because of the people and experiences that have impacted me most I have a personal commitment to give back and support those that do so much. These are a few of my favorite organizations: Creative Growth in Oakland, Human Rights Campaign, The Pacific Center for Human Growth in Berkeley and The Richmond Ermet Aids Foundation.
