Real Estate junkie through and through! A native to the Bay Area, I am a 3rd generation Italian-American raised in a family of builders. I have lived in many of the cities that comprise of Silicon Valley and can say that Real Estate is in my blood. Hundreds of transactions later proves I LOVE what I do. Saying I've been a Real Estate consultant since 1993 may date me but it feels like yesterday that I keyed in the parameters of my first clients criteria. Out came yards and yards of thermographic paper and I was off for the day! Since then we've gone through more contract revisions that I can count, numerous types of lock boxes/keys and last but not least the headshots!

I admire all architecture and appreciate every era's craftsmanship and character. I am always intrigued with the story behind each property. Say the word MODERN and I go crazy! I enjoy the clean and contemporary design of a modern home. I feel I have a keen sense of what people are looking for and love to share my building experience. I can tell you how I LOVE to negotiate and how I consistently win contracts for buyers but the truth of the matter is, it's all about the relationships of the great people I get to spend my time with... and who wouldn't want the BEST for them?

I hope to be spending time with you!

Growing up as the third generation of a farming family founded in the Silicon Valley is such an important part of my heritage. I remember picking ripe blenheim apricots, sweet bing cherries, and the smell of fresh picked corn as I walked in the fields with my dad as a young girl. When Santa Clara was filled with a plethora of orchards, it was known as "The Valley of Heart's Delight". I feel blessed to have been able to experience the adaptation of the Silicon Valley throughout the years.

I am proud to be a part of Team Arena of Sereno Group.  A group of women passionate about what we do within Real Estate.  I enjoy representing my clients throughout the entire journey of selling their home.  Being able to integrate my knowledge of horse ownership, as well as my experience within the agriculture industry has proven to be an asset in representing horse properties. The founder of Team Arena, Broker Associate, Darcey K. Arena, leads our team with over 20 years of experience. Her leadership gives me the opportunity to work confidently with both home buyers and sellers while we work closely together to provide the highest quality of service to get the job done efficiently. We are a team of agents who are willing and able to take care of all your Real Estate needs!

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my family, going to baseball games, skiing, camping, and introducing people to my horses. I strive to share the same enjoyable experience I had when I began my passion for horseback riding and the history of our western heritage. Team roping competition is a hobby I enjoy when given the opportunity.

Born and raised in Los Gatos, I am a proud Bay Area native.  My dad was a residential contractor and developer and my mom was a Real Estate Agent.  Brought up in a large Croatian Italian family with strong ties to Sunnyvale and Cupertino.  Growing up I always loved going to the job sites and seeing the progress from foundations to finish work.  I knew eventually I would follow in both their footsteps and pursue a career in Real Estate.

While obtaining my business management degree from San Jose State, I worked toward getting my Real Estate license.  I started out as a transaction coordinator while venturing into my own career as an agent at Intero Real Estate.  I loved the growth I saw in myself as well as the experience I gained being able to see the inside of 100’s of transactions and scenarios.  After 5 years in the business and still being in my early 20’s, I knew I needed to venture out and gain more life experience.

At that point, I did a complete career 180 and headed into the Silicon Valley corporate tech life.  I accepted a position at Apple.  It was a great opportunity.  I worked within Software Engineering as an administrative assistant to a large engineering team.  The fast paced environment and the need to multi task was like something that I had never seen before.

But then life happens, I got married and found out I was expecting our first child.  Once my son was born, I knew I needed to get back into a career where I was truly happy and could pursue a career where I feel most at home.  I am passionate for Real Estate and the entire process that goes along with selling homes.  Getting back into selling as well as transaction coordinating is where I am meant to be.  It provides a challenge and career that I can be proud of.  I met Darcey and we instantly had a great connection and working relationship.  I joined Sereno Group and Team Arena because it is the perfect fit for me.  I get to be a transaction coordinator, which I love, and well as work with some highly experienced agents always trying to better their knowledge and provide the best service for their clients.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my son Nicholas and husband Nicholas, yes it gets confusing in our household. I love traveling and getting to Tahoe at any chance I have.  I enjoy skiing in the winter and boating in the summer.  I enjoy exercising and hiking trails.  I love baking and DIY projects.

With a degree from San Jose State University in Graphic Design and Advertising, my career started in 2007 with Century 21 Real Estate. Within my first year I went from part time Graphic Designer to full time Marketing Manager. I survived the great real estate crash of 2008 and spent my first 10 years learning everything I could about Real Estate Marketing. After a short stint with Chicago Title I eventually landed at Sereno Group where I am proud to work for a company who cares about their employees just as much as their community. It was at Sereno Group that I met Darcey Arena and was given the opportunity to join Team Arena. As a founding member of Team Arena I am looking forward to continuing to learn and grow my Real Estate skills to provide our clients with the best marketing available.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my two beautiful nieces, family and friends, traveling, watching movies and perfecting my skills in the art of crochet. My interests include all things home decor and interior design which is why I feel blessed to be working in an industry that I am passionate about!
