I’m thrilled to join the team at Winkler Real Estate Group, working with top-producing agent Felicia Duncan.  Collaborating with Felicia is a natural extension of my go-getter, get-it-done mindset; together, we’re unstoppable.

I'm from the East Coast, but spent the majority of my childhood in Arizona. As a child, I was a trendsetter. I was the first on my block to get rollerblades and kickstart a neighborhood craze. I joined the swim team at ten, ready for competition. After earning my degree in Psychology from Arizona State University, I became a tobacco cessation counselor. Over the years I've helped thousands of people, across the country and internationally, quit using tobacco. While I am no longer in the business, I donate my time to friends and family who want to quit smoking for good. I’m passionate about self care, love to cook, and regularly hike and exercise. I am close with family and friends; I am the person everyone calls when they need a boost.

In 2012, I moved to Berkeley and fell in love; I consider the East Bay my home. The skills I developed as a counselor are essential in real estate.  We all know buying or selling a home or investment  property is not for the faint of heart!  The power of clear communication, clarity in goal setting, and an endless capacity to deal with unexpected challenges is where my strength lies. Clients know they can count on me, I listen to what my clients want and how they operate; collaboration is essential.  

Trust me, when it comes to real estate, I’ve seen it all.  And when you’re working closely together on an important financial transaction, trust is key. I’ll be your confidant, your advisor,  and your advocate. Having spent several years as a property manager, I’m intimately familiar with repairs, remodels, updates, and conversions. This is my terrain: creating and maintaining property value. 

One of my greatest assets is that I work well with people in challenging situations, I manage tenant issues with respect and care. I know what contractors and vendors need to work quickly and get a home ready for the market.  Clients don’t need to worry about a thing. My expertise allows my clients to make smart choices in real estate. I set my clients up for success in future projects or the next chapter of their lives. 

During my days as a property manager, I bought a German Shepard and trained him to go to work with me. In my free time, I work on his protection and obedience training. I’m an avid hiker and camper; when I don’t have an open house, my weekends are spent on the trail. Wildcat Canyon, Albany Bulb, and Mt. Diablo are my go-to hiking spots in the East Bay. 

I am geared up and ready to bring my talents and special magic to the Felicia Duncan Team. Beginning to end we’ll go above and beyond, helping families and building relationships is just what we do. 

Hope to hear from you soon!
