All of my life I have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area and no more than 40 miles from San Francisco, the city of my birth. I grew up in the shadow of Silicon Valley before it was given that name and even worked at for a semiconductor manufacturing company almost right out of high school. Through my adult years I'm discovering (yes at my age I do still discover) that I have a passion for helping people and as a Realtor that is a perfect fit because working with people is what I do. Secondary to that is I love finding things...I love helping people find the home that best meets their needs and their budget. Also, because I've been in the bay area all my life and I love to drive, I have a familiarity with many of the cities and neighborhoods that comprise the San Francisco Bay Area.
