I love where I live, and I also love what I do. I'm lucky to be able to work in a profession in which I get to build relationships; one that has me meeting new people each and every day and helping them to build new lives in my beloved city. I'm lucky enough to work in a profession in which I can marry cutting-edge technologies and marketing techniques to good, old-fashioned, nose-to-the-grindstone work. I am lucky enough to work in a profession that allows me to work as an advocate for my clients; to use every tool at my disposal to get a job done well for them, and with as little stress and expense as possible.
I love my city. I love my job. One inspires my excellence for the other.

I am so excited to announce that FresYes Realty has been named the FLYP 2018 Company of the Year. This is such an amazing honor!
FLYP stands for Fresno’s Leading Young Professionals. It’s a non-profit organization that serves young professionals generally between the ages of 21 and 40 years old. FLYP’s purpose is to attract and retain dedicated and passionate individuals in the greater Fresno area who are committed to professional and civic leadership.
According to Nina Tonnu Waste, FLYP Chair, we received this award for a specific reason. “Through FresYes’ many community efforts, events, and support of local businesses, you have proved your ability to bridge generational, professional, and political boundaries to advance initiatives in support of the professional community in the Greater Fresno area.”
Connecting Fresnans to the community is the goal
This means so much to me. Since I started FresYes Realty and FresYes.com, my goal has been to connect folks in Fresno to their community, whether that be through finding their dream home, or finding them something fun to do on the weekend.
As a realtor, I’ve spent a great deal of time working with families to make the home buying and selling process a joyful experience. As a broker, I’ve mentored agents here locally, and across the country. My work has put me in a position to support great events, activities, and organizations throughout the Fresno area.
FresYes Realty is a proud sponsor of FresYes Fest, Swede Fest, the Common Space QueerOut Awards, and the San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust Parties at the Parkway. Every year, we hold a community blood drive with the Central California Blood Center, and at Christmas we collect toys and donations for the Salvation Army’s local Angel Tree program.
For the last few years, my staff has put on Movie in the Park, a community event where we invite families to spend an evening together watching a movie along the bluffs of the San Joaquin River. And recently, we expanded our office to include a store, in which we sell products from local artisans, and community space, where businesses like Four Corners Yoga and Lanna Coffee Co. have held events.
I know it sounds like I’m bragging, and I kind of am. I’m just so proud of all the work my staff and agents do to make FresYes Realty such an awesome place to work. It really is a team effort, and I’m so thankful to have that effort noticed by amazing groups like FLYP!
