Professional Bio...

 

Over thirty years ago, I originated my first home loan for a wonderful family … and that sparked my passion of helping make homeownership dreams come true!  This prompted me to change careers from the legal industry into mortgage lending so I could live my most genuine life – helping others! I helped put thousands of families into new homes and acquire their American dream.  This career change also required that I get a real estate license in order to work in the mortgage industry.  That was a fortunate side effect, as now that the mortgage industry has gone more in the direction of being ‘transactional’, having my license allows me to stay “relational’ and continue to help families. Being able to be a part of the exciting time of getting them into a home is most gratifying for me. I will probably work until I keel over; I absolutely love working and wake up each morning excited for the day!

Personal Bio...

 

I was born and raised in Pleasanton, CA (which is also the birthplace of NextHome!).  No stoplights, only stop signs and a grocery store.  I watched the city grow and I grew up with it.  Emancipated and married at 15, I then had the most amazing little girl. I raised her in Pleasanton and San Ramon – determined to give her the childhood that I never had. I went to Cal State Hayward and studied paralegal, and then transferred on to Santa Clara.  I worked at a prestigious law firm for several years before discovering my love for real estate through my father.  Mortgage lending was an easy transition for me and gave me the opportunity to be a very involved mother. I was at every practice, every school event, every … EVERYTHING!  I was so fortunate! I now have two grandsons. I love being a granny! They are my everything AND give me affirmation that I have the strongest, most loving daughter.  Additionally, I have always been an advocate for volunteering – I work with the OC Rescue Mission and the LA Mission – and am a cat lover, raising my new kitty Charlie after losing DJ after 14 years.
