Personal Background

Born and raised in Moscow, Russia, Elena moved to US in 1996.
After working for a boutique investment firm, Elena decided to pursue her MBA, upon which she accepted a position with a Bay Area IT company, specializing in banking software products. While pursuing her corporate aspirations Elena developed a passion for real estate marked by active investments both, domestically and overseas.
Surfacing of two adorable but excruciatingly demanding children, made Elena's transition to a formal real estate career not only logical, but exciting. Elena's background in project management, business administration, negotiation and consulting make a great addition to her expertise in Real Estate.
Elena and her family are proud 10-year residents of Walnut Creek and enjoy hiking, biking, cooking, reading, entertaining and chasing children's activities in the vicinity of 200 miles, as evidenced by links on her web-site at
