Team Profile



The Total Real Estate Experience (TREE) is a comprehensive process that combines my unique coaching skills with an integrated team approach to achieving our clients’s success. TREE begins with me helping my clients define their real estate dreams, goals and objectives so that their interests drive these life-size financial decisions, while I become the vehicle to get it done. I don’t merely engineer transactions; I thoughtfully usher in and strategically execute their objectives for complete client satisfaction.

When a more holistic approach is desired, I engage my Client Advocacy Network, a team of diverse best-in class professionals who share my mission and values. Together, we collaborate to work cohesively and seamlessly to support our clients throughout the entire process, from visioning their dreams and goals to creating action plans and executing their objectives.

This might involve developing integrative strategies between our client’s financial advisor, estate planning attorney, CPA, lender and myself. At other times, additional professionals may be brought into the conversation—always ensuring a holistic perspective and approach. For our high net worth clients, the strategies offered may be more complex and innovative, depending on the immediate needs of our clients. Other asset leveraging tools may be a more viable, efficient option than the traditional means of cash and/or selling of certain assets or real estate.

The TREE approach provides:

• A more efficient process that saves you time and money

• Greater ease and joy as you navigate the home buying/selling process

• Increased confidence in knowing that you’ve made the right choices for you and your family

    … every step of the way.

My Mission: To provide impeccable service by combining my life coaching skills with a collaborative team approach to supporting my clients' dreams, goals and objectives.

I relish my ability to think outside the box at Coast and Valley Properties while collaborating with the experts in my chosen network. This allows me to fulfill my mission of not just providing impeccable service…but of truly being of service.

My Vision: A Kinder World of Commerce in which the experience of creating empowered, win-win outcomes is based on transparency, integrity, trust, respect and kindness.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, skiing, traveling, photography, documentary film making and spending time with my young nieces.
