We are surrounded by tremendous architectural diversity and natural beauty here. And San Francisco looks great from across the Bay! We are known for having a world-class University, and with that comes an active "life of the mind" as well as an abundance of cultural events and activities. Within minutes of my own home I can be in the woods or by a lake in Tilden Park to the East, or be at the water's edge to the west, watching the sun set through the spires of the Golden Gate Bridge.
I have a special passion for vintage homes, especially homes in the styles of the Arts & Crafts movement: bungalows, brownshinges, prairie styles. Visit my website, TheSimpleHome.com, for lots of information about the styles and the architects who worked in the East Bay while much of this area was being developed. While charming and beautiful, these homes can be cold and drafty as the winter months approach. I'd love to share with buyers and sellers the many ways they can make these older homes more comfortable by taking some simple steps that can also reduce utility costs. Proud to hold the GREEN designation of REALTORS®.
While period homes are my specialty, I have represented condos as well as historic landmarks, as my clients' needs require. I also enjoy working with investment buyers of multi-units and smaller commercial properties.
Whether you're looking in Kensington, El Cerrito, Albany, Oakland, Piedmont, Berkeley or Alameda, I'm happy to give my personalized tour of special restaurants and markets, book stores, nurseries, places to hear music, theaters and some of the surprises this area holds. Please give me a call, or send me email!
