Buying a home is both a matter of the heart, largely driven by emotions, and finances. One really does not outweigh the other. As your real estate agent, I'll help you find a balance between finding a house you will fall in love with and finding a house that you can afford.

You'll benefit from the wealth of experience I bring successfully negotiating and closing transactions in the Santa Clara County real estate market. I'll help you find the house and the neighborhood that will meet your emotional and financial needs for today and tomorrow.

I'll do everything I can to take the stress out of your home buying and home selling experience. There are hundreds of details that go into each real estate transaction. Let me handle those for you. I will help you find a lender, inspector, appraiser and all the other service providers that make for a smooth and worry-free transaction.

I specialize in probate real estate. As a Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist my focus is on helping Executors and Administrators avoid headaches before they start. When someone is appointed by the court to administer an estate, they become an officer of the court. There are certain duties, obligations and legal responsibilities that involve a high standard of care in managing property for a person. Hiring an experienced probate real estate agent is a good place to start to ensure a high standard of care.

Whether you are a first-time buyer or a "real estate veteran", I'm ready to answer all your questions about San Jose and Silicon Valley real estate.
