Personal Background

I was born in the Czech Republic during the communist era. When the Russian army occupied the Czech Republic, I escaped to London to continue my education there. When I visited San Francisco, I fell in love with the Bay Area, and decided to settle here. I am married and have twin daughters, who attended Bacich, Kent and Redwood high school. My husband and I lived in Sausalito for many years, and we are now in Greenbrae for over 20 years because of the excellent schools, good weatehr and easy access to 101 and San Francisco.

Professional experience

I have been a full-time professional residential and commercial real estate agent since 1987 and have won numerous sales awards. While I specialize in Greenbrae/Kentfield, approximately 50% of my business is in the rest of Marin county. I have bought and sold homes, and have references from almost every town in Marin.

Professional Philosophy

INTEGRITY + KNOWLEDGE + EXPERIENCE + PATIENCE
I know the local market, and have seen most of the homes for sale over the years. When I REPRESENT SELLERS, I believe that "preparation is the key to success". I am known for selling "beautiful homes" with many selling over the asking price: I provide a full "concierge service" that includes access to a list of contractors, painters, architects, gardeners, cleaners, inspectors etc. When I REPRESENT BUYERS I am not afraid to spend the time it takes to educate them. "Buyers and sellers must have a good understanding of today's market to efficiently maximize their return".
