What would you like to know about me?

  •      I'm a third generation San Franciscan who moved to the Sacramento foothills when my kids were grown. I kept coming up here for the weekend to visit friends and hated going back home. Now I am proud to be the Owner of my own real Estate Company here in Auburn, CA.(Placer County) I work with some great agents, all here to assist you.
  •       I've been in sales and client service for over 25 years & don't believe in high pressure sales tactics. What we at BBR do believe is that strong communication & building relationships is my priority and getting you the right property is my business. Thats why we are built By Referral and Branded By Reputation.
  •      If you're a buyer, let's work together on finding you properties. I work closely with local Realtors and regularly get prior knowledge of listings coming on the market . If a property meets your needs, you will know about it and be happy to show it to you. Your next home is not something anyone can talk you in to. once you see it, YOU will know.
  •       If you're a seller,  Marketing is my passion. I do whatever it takes to get your home sold at the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time. If you find yourself upside down on your mortgage, I work some great professionals who can consult with you on strategies.

A fifth generation Placer & El Dorado County resident. Over 35 years of varied real estate experience, including appraisal, financing, land development, & construction to help my clients with all their real estate needs.

I am a 5th generation Placer & El Dorado County resident with an intimate knowledge and connection to this area. My family helped pioneer the fruit industry in Placer & El Dorado County with farms in Auburn and Cool. I grew up between the Bay Area and Auburn working on the family pear and cattle ranch in Cool. I have commercially farmed Peaches, Prunes, Walnuts, and Grapes in Sutter County near Live Oak, CA. 

I graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and worked a variety of positions. Thirty plus years of real estate experience, starting with the Federal Land Bank, includes lending, appraisal, land development, custom home design, construction, and property management. I have helped clients buy, sell, and lease homes, residential land, income, commercial, and agricultural property. My experience with a wide variety of market conditions gives me firsthand knowledge for handling many situations.

Community service is a large part of my commitment to the area. I am a Past President of the Marysville/Yuba City Active 20-30 Club, past Man of the Year for The American Cancer Society Sutter/Yuba Counties, and a past member of several Lions Clubs. I am currently a member of several real estate professional organizations. I volunteer as a grief facilitator for the Healing Through Loss & Grief Support Group in Grass Valley and Roseville.

I was one of the original members of the Trailhead Estates Owners Association and past and current Chairman of the Trailhead Estates Architectural Review Committee. I currently serve as President of Trailhead Estates Owners Association. My real estate and financial background and my experience working with the board of directors at Trailhead Estates and other boards throughout my career qualify me to serve you in the professional capacity needed as an HOA director putting the community first. 

Our HOA begin as a community of neighbors working together for our common interests and the good of our association. I would like to see that continue and strengthened for our community benefit. Working together we can maintain our neighborhood for the highest value. My commitment to our community is to uphold our bylaws and CC&Rs in a professional and courteous manner to maximize the enjoyment of our homes and neighborhood.
