What do you love most about Your City? 

I love the energy and small town feel that Danville has to offer.  An abundance of boutique shops, top restaurants and plenty of trails to hike and ride.  Close to Napa Valley, Silicon Valley and San Francisco.  Lake Tahoe and Carmel are within hours which I frequent often.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant? 

“Sideboard Restaurant” is a favorite of mine, with such a warm cozy feel.  Poached eggs on Potato Au Gratin is amazing (extra tabasco), although everything they make is delicious.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM –  Pouring my first cup of coffee for the morning and watching CNN to get the morning news for the day.  Corepower Yoga four times per week is a weekly goal.

10:00 AM – Checking the MLS, daily tracking the real estate market is key.  Checking social media, returning emails, previewing any new properties that hit the market (second cup of coffee) adding more events to the calendar for the day.  

12:00 PM - Favorite Power Lunch spot/meal?

Piatti’s in The Livery next to our Agency Office is one my favorites.  I am a creature of habit so I usually order the Carpaccio salad or the Lemon ravioli.  You will always find us local Realtors eating lunch there.

( - Danville

7:00 PM -  If I make it home by 7:00 then typically dinner with my husband and kid’s.

11:00 PM – Watching Netflix.  The Ozarks and Queen of the South are two of my favorites.

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

COFFEE… Three cups in the morning to late morning.  A glass of Sauvignon Blanc when I get home and am ready to relax.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

Instagram is my favorite, it works well for Realtors as we can post new listings etc.  Spark Post is my favorite App.  It allows you to design something very easily.

What should everyone try at least once? 

Compose a piece of Art and display it.  Everyone has a talent, they may not realize until they try.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

In San Francisco, such a diverse wonderful city with plenty of things to get lost in.  Art galleries and restaurants.  Hiking up to Coit tower  in S.F. Once you reach the top, enjoy the views!  When you get to the bottom, a Bloody Mary at Fog City Diner is in order.
