Local Expertise...International Reach!



e-Pro, B.com, B.S., M.B.A.

As a licensed Realtor in the Bay Area since 1989 (DRE #01050721/02029039). I have many years of experience to meet your commercial real estate needs.

I have been a Real Estate Investment Consultant for most of my professional life and have a strong business and customer service background. I successfully started retail and service businesses, and have 20+ years of professional experience in business development and management. I have developed and implemented strategies for businesses to help them achieve their goals.

I find that my participation with various professional organizations at the local, state and national levels have given me a unique perspective of the role of a real estate professional, and has enhanced my ability to offer my clients a superior experience. My business background gives me the tools I need to offer my clients full service.

My contributions with various community organizations and non-profit boards allow me to give back to the community and offer my services – whether as a real estate professional or a business consultant to these organizations.

Since I work with a large network of investors I am able to bring buyer/tenants and sellers/landlords together with my strong negotiation skills. Some of the ventures I have successfully completed include the sale of a 72-unit property, a 13-unit mixed-use retail/residential space and a 3-unit retail/office space. Tenant Representation in a 50,000 square foot warehouse/office and 10,000 SF office leases.

I earned my Real Estate license from the California Department of Real Estate in 1989. I earned a BS degree from the University of California, Berkeley Haas School of Business and an M.B.A from Golden Gate University.
