I grew up in Los Altos, attended its public schools and Stanford University. Growing up in Los Altos, half of my street was an orchard field where I earned money cutting apricots for drying. Now this street and the surrounding area is prime real estate just a short walk to downtown Los Altos.
Before becoming a Realtor® I had a career in product management and launch for complex scientific instrumentation at Hewlett-Packard. My work involved participating and often leading cross-functional teams working toward a well defined common goal. In real estate today I utilize these project management and negotiating skills to ensure we meet and exceed our clients’ goals. I know every property transaction has a lifecycle with key milestones that must be well defined and communicated. I have the good fortune of working with the Troyer Group -- a team of specialists who make sure milestones are met on time and within budget to ensure our clients reach their goals as seamlessly as possible. Every clients’ success is our triumph. We believe our clients deserve the best, so we do our best!
I live in Los Altos with my husband Peter. We have raised two boys who have grown to be amazing young men. In our spare time, Peter and I love to hike our local trails with our two trail dogs Chanel and Charlie. We have donated our time to the Peninsula Open Space Trust which has assured, in perpetuity, the beauty of our surroundings will be open to all of us to enjoy. We also ski, cycle and enjoy great home cooked meals with friends and family.
