About Me

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.


That said, in my experience as a Northern California Real Estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.


This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.


So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the Santa Clara County, San Mateo County, San Francisco County, Alameda County areas, please contact me.

"The process of buying or selling a home can be stressful. Helen is top notch. She has been and will be the only realtor I use for my real estate needs. She has helped us buy and sell. Each transaction has been uncomplicated on our end. Any time an issue would arise, she would say, "just relax and let me handle it" and that is exactly what she did. What I value most about Helen is her character. She didn't make working with her feel like a business transaction. She truly cares about our best interests. She is an amazing realtor and even more amazing person. Thank you Helen."

"Helen is the absolute best and has her clients best interest at heart!

Helen made our first time buying a home an enjoyable and joyous occasion. She was open and honest about her thoughts on the homes instead of just trying to make a sale.

We appreciate you tremendously Helen!!! Thank you :)"

"We highly recommend if you are buying or selling a house call Helen. Helen sold our home 4 days after open house.

We couldn’t believe how easy she made the process, she made us feel like we were her only clients, stress free and available with our many questions. Helen respected all our needs, she’s straight to the point but with a comforting tone. She uses highly qualified photographers to showcase your home, and professionally trained inspectors. Helen and Dan were with us all the way to closing.

Thanks Helen and Dan

"Helen helped me sell my first home years ago. Throughout the years if I had real estate questions she was there to help me. I moved to San Diego and she has continued to be of great assistance anytime I call her office. She has referred me to a Colleague who has also been outstanding. She is Top Notch !!
I have confidently referred her to family and friends who have been very satisfied too . Thank You Helen for giving me a great experience at a time that could have been stressful & hectic. You are the best."

I was 10 years old when my grandfather, my dad’s father, passed away. He lived in Taiwan, so I knew him only through pictures and the half-dozen times I had met him, and I had been too young to create lasting memories. I felt sad for my dad more than myself. When my dad returned from work that night he...



It all started because of Twinkies. When I was nine years old, one of my younger brothers played soccer and my parents would always drag me along to watch his games at the middle school. I wasn’t much of a spectator. But what I did notice, on the other side of the field, across from where the players’ families watched...
