About The Author

Born and raised in Germany, I moved to Emeryville (Hollis Corridor) in 2012 to escape the bad weather of San Francisco. Living on the greenbelt in one of Emeryville’s ‘painted ladies’, I take advantage of the walkability of the neighborhood and am known to stop dog owners to have lengthy petting sessions with their pooches. After a successful IT career and being burned by the stock market, I invested heavily in real estate. The transition to become a realtor seemed natural. I love helping buyers and sellers yield optimal results. Just as in IT, my goal is to stay in budget, scope and time and to leave my clients happy.
