"My philosophy is very simple. I want you to be completely satisfied. The only way to do that is to ensure my clients feel that I have gone the extra mile. That is why my business is comprised almost exclusively of referrals from satisfied clients."

— Sandy

Professional Approach

Every home buyer and seller has different needs and expectations. Only by asking insightful questions and listening closely to your responses will I be able to design an approach that is tailored to your unique requirements. My style is a collaborative one in which we always work together to accomplish your goals. I truly value these client relationships as they are critical to the buying and selling processes. Being a realtor is not just a job for me, it’s my passion. 

I have been a realtor in Northern California for over ten years, and have closed over $150 million in sales. Originally from Jamaica, I received an MBA in Marketing from Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Prior to my real estate career, I worked in marketing and management in the Bay Area high-tech and telecommunications industries.

Certified Residential Specialist Professional Qualification

The Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation is the highest professional designation awarded to realtors in the residential field. Out of more than one million realtors in the US, less than three percent are given the CRS designation. In order to become a designee, a realtor must have significant experience with a high volume of real estate transactions, have completed rigorous educational requirements, and demonstrated outstanding professional achievement in residential real estate.


My CRS designation provides you with:

  • The latest information on real estate negotiations, sales and marketing, and technological advances;

  • A broad network of specialized agents that I am in contact with on a regular basis;

  • Up-to-the-minute industry information with respect to taxes, investment, and real estate legislation.
