This agent has a plan to maximize your real estate investment.

What is it about you that makes you a great choice for clients?

I think outside the box. Markets change, each home is unique and each buyer or seller will have their own goals. I will always create a plan, but I am nimble and will adjust that plan for each nuance.


What sets your design approach apart when it comes to improving or staging property?

There is no one design approach, each home is unique. I like the style of architecture to dictate the design. My father was an architect and I think design is baked into my DNA. I can walk into a home and know what can be done to maximize value — and the key is value. I will only suggest an upgrade if I think my client will achieve at least $2 for every $1 they spend. I’m also not opposed to walking into a home and say “do nothing.” I just don’t take a cookie-cutter approach.


How are you addressing some of the new design trends?

I am so excited about the new trends; here are the ones I am most excited about: color is making a comeback from the grey and white pallet we have lived with; rich wood paired with a hard surface such as marble or Caesarstone is back in style; outdoors we are seeing low-maintenance, low-water landscapes with use of native plants and succulents.
