My unique personal and professional experience provides the perfect complement to Ginny’s 35 years of real estate experience in the area. On the personal side, being raised in Portola Valley but residing in Menlo Park provides perspective on living in two of the most attractive areas in Silicon Valley. Professionally, my financial services background benefits clients because I worked in an incredibly strict fiduciary environment where the needs of the client are always put before anything else.
