More About Me


I came to the San Francisco Bay Area from Coventry. England in 1979. When I arrived here, I stayed with my Aunt who lived in Daly City at the time.

While in England, I had completed my vocational college course and earned an O.N.D in Travel and Tourism. So, my parents rewarded me with a graduation trip.

We had always loved watching “The Streets Of San Francisco” on television. We loved the sight of the Golden Gate Bridge peeking through the fog, and the car chases up and down the hills of the city. After my vacation and returning home to England, I couldn't settle, I had fallen in love with the bay area. So with my parents' blessing, I decided to emigrate, and returned in 1980. Sometimes I still marvel at the fact that I ventured out to this beautiful place at age 18, and have remained here ever since.

I love the City of San Francisco and went through a second coming of age there in the late 80’s -90’s. I love the many scenic neighborhoods, Noe Valley, Dolores St, the Haight/Ashbury, Embarcadero, and the Marina etc. and of course theater and dining with so many different cuisines to choose from.

By the year 2000 I moved to Pacifica, and I fell in love again, with my fabulous coastal town. Driving home alongside the Pacific Ocean every evening makes for a perfect ending to the work day. Walking along the beach and spending time reflecting by the ocean is so enjoyable. I am so grateful for my experience and life here, that I want help others settle here too or find their ideal place to call home.

I have always enjoyed serving the public, and have always worked doing so from waitressing, to property management, to Realtor.

In June of 1999 I went into Real Estate full time. During the past 23 years as a Realtor, I have had the pleasure of helping people achieve the American dream of home ownership, believing a warm place to call home should be accessible to all. I have sold homes and condominiums throughout the Bay Area, but mainly, on the Peninsula, in Pacifica and the surrounding areas. I have always considered it a delightful privilege.

Helping people grow personal wealth through real estate, being there in both good and bad times. I have walked people through the process of home buying for the first time, downsizing, buying up, or dissolving an estate.

The relationships you build during these processes turn into lifetime friendships. More often than not, helping people buy or sell real estate, is handling a person's most valuable asset and needs to be respected as such, building trust and using the utmost integrity.

As a realtor, my most valued assets are my clients. Our Business is hugely reliant on referrals and excellent customer service is a must.!!

I look forward to us working together, and making your next move as smooth and stress free as possible.
