The path of real estate unfolded right before me. After graduating from Cal State back in 2000, I met a life-changing mortgage broker. He qualified my parents for a home within a week.  What a blessing! That same broker then qualified me for a loan to purchase MY first home.  And just weeks later, he offered to mentor me in mortgage finance. I leapt from my high tech job and rapidly became a top mortgage consultant.

Fast forward 20 years. I‘ve had a successful mortgage banking career and run my own company (HJLC Partners) renovating and selling homes. In 2015 I earned my MBA at Saint Mary’s College located in beautiful Moraga CA.  Now, as an experienced realtor and licensed broker for almost two decades, I offer my clients useful insights from the trenches.

If you’re looking to get into your first home, I can quickly help you evaluate your financing options and investigate great investments.  If you’re downsizing or looking to move out of an old family home, I’ll help discover how to prep your home for sale without huge expenses.  My passion is working with buyers and sellers on their best financial strategy.

To relax I like to prepare delicious food for my husband and 3 boys, play with my dogs, take long walks, and practice bikram yoga. Highly intuitive, I am in touch with the effects of energy and spirituality on a day-to-day basis.  Buying a home can be stressful, but I like to make it fun!

I bring all my good energy and expertise to the team at Winkler Real Estate Group.   Danny and I clicked the moment we met, and the family-like atmosphere here is fantastic. I look forward to collaborating with others to further success for all, especially my clients.
