For my whole life, I’ve been a devoted supporter of the arts—especially local music. At the age of eighteen, I threw myself into a career in music production for nightclubs across Sacramento, helping coordinate shows at venues such as Harlow’s, Crest Theater, and Memorial Auditorium. It was in that business that I met my husband, Jerry, and built a career spanning more than a decade.

But it’s hard to make a steady living in music, and as my son Elijah started growing older and starting school, I knew I needed to shift to something more reliable. When I was younger, my family was constantly relocating. I would basically find out we were moving when I came home from school and found the truck outside my house. And while my career wasn’t forcing me to leave town, I still wanted my son to have more consistency in his life than I did while growing up.

I decided to take the marketing skills I had developed promoting shows and apply them to real estate marketing. While assisting other agents with their marketing, I developed a strong foundation for my future in the industry, both in my knowledge of contracts and transactions as well as the understanding that I could really help people in real estate.

I went on to spend a year in a commercial office before shifting my focus to residential real estate, where I first met Heather Pearce. Heather and I were desk-mates at our brokerage, and we quickly developed a friendship. For a long time, we’ve had each other’s backs both personally and professionally. And now, we’ve partnered together to provide even better service to our clients.

Serving others has been a high priority for me ever since I was young. Both my grandmothers taught me not only to be social, but also socially conscious, and instilled in me a strong appreciation for community involvement. Those values have remained with me my whole life, and I’m continually working with those around me to improve our community.

Today, I’m the president of Chalk It Up, a non-profit devoted to creating an annual free chalk art festival for Sacramento, as well as giving out grants to local youth art projects, whether it’s for a teacher who needs supplies, or a student who wants to take a class. With my background in event planning, I’ve brought the attendance of our annual festival from 10,000 up to over 50,000 people over the past few years. I also do volunteer work for Organize Sacramento, where we help citizens get the resources they need to improve their neighborhoods, as well as Sacramento Self-Help Housing, assisting low-income families in securing a home.

My favorite community service will always be helping others achieve their dreams of homeownership. To that end, I place an emphasis on communication and adaptability, and I always strive to be a facilitator and educator to my clients.

Heather and I would love nothing more than to lend our knowledge and experience toward helping you with your real estate endeavors. Buying or selling real estate is often an enormously important transaction, and the representation you receive from your agent can have significant impact on your results. We want you to pick the agent or team that’s the right fit for your particular needs. If that ends up being us, we promise to work diligently to exceed your expectations.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. When you or someone you know is in need of a real estate agent, we ask that you give us the opportunity to demonstrate our services and interview for the job.
