About Theresa

Hello!  Thank you for visiting and checking in.  A little about myself, I am a California native and have lived in the South Bay since 1995.  My husband, Ryan, and I own a home and live in Almaden Valley of San Jose with our 2 school-age children.

My husband and I both have Mechanical Engineering degrees from Santa Clara University, but we have leveraged our education in different ways.  I worked at Hewlett Packard and Agilent Technologies for a few years out of college and then quit high-tech to pursue real estate in 2004 (when the Santa Clara county median home price was just $650,000!). My husband works for Apple Inc so I know well the intense demands of a Silicon Valley tech job today.  I work with my real estate clients to find a home or sell their home among the daily work demands they face. I as well am a typical on-the-go tech-savvy working professional here in Silicon Valley,  connected via my mobile phone and Apple Watch enabling me to be very reachable and efficient at keeping in touch with my clients.

Once an engineer, always an engineer! I love stats and data and am very familiar with the local real estate market metrics.  I happily review real estate statistics with you as part of your transaction and related decisions so you can make informed choices based on solid facts. With 14+ years of experience, you will be expertly guided through your sales process step by step. My goal is to provide exceptional real estate service above and beyond the norm which is why I named my website HomeOwnerExperience.com

In my free-time, I love being active. I continually get outdoors and enjoy all that the bay area has to offer.  I spend several weekends a year camping with family and friends and hitting the Tahoe ski slopes!  I am frequently seen at the park or in my front yard playing baseball or soccer with my son Oliver.  I also enjoy being the crew chief for my husband’s Spec Miata races with NASA (National Auto Sports Association) about once a month-when my work allows!

I love wine, craft cocktails and food and frequently cook gourmet meals for family and guests with veggies from my home garden.  I also love to be outdoors, including working out in my early morning boot camp/HIIT classes or hiking the beautiful hills of Silicon Valley including Almaden’s Quicksilver park. I am also active in the community and continually volunteer with my kids’ schools, beautifulday.org, the Martin-Fontana Parks Association and TJ Martin Park Neighborhood Association.  I love being the team manager for my son’s AFC soccer team as well! I am a member of Santa Clara County Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors, National Association of Realtors

I look forward to meeting with you and seeing how I can personally help you achieve your real estate goals.

If you're looking to sell a home in San Jose I would highly recommend Theresa. This was my first time going through the home selling process and Theresa was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Her insight on how to prep the home for sale was invaluable. She is very attentive to detail and easy to work with. Theresa's expertise helped us sell our home above asking and before the first open house was finished! Thank you very much Theresa!!!!

If you're looking to buy or sell a home in Almaden Valley then do yourself a favor and call Theresa. She was awesome to work with. We're in sale pending for our home and see for yourself the great job her team did on a marketing video for our home at 5858meanderdotcom. Her efforts brought in multiple offers within one week. I agree with the comments made by the other reviewers with respect to her knowledge of the area and the business of real estate, she made the journey incredibly stress free. We have no complaints whatsoever, only praise for a job done incredibly well.

Theresa was instrumental throughout our home buying process. She knows the Almaden area like no one else and gave us insightful context on the real estate market conditions, and all the properties we were looking at. We really enjoyed her communication style, transparent and to the point. We knew what to expect, and what to watch out for, at each and every step.Theresa is also a wonderful and reliable team player. When we ran into some hurdle with our loan application, she proactively reached out to our broker, came up with a solution, and ultimately helped us push the deal through the finish line. She's dedicated to getting you what you want!Buying a home can be stressful and exhausting at times, especially for first time buyers like us. Theresa's professionalism, responsiveness and diligence have been nothing short of amazing. We would work with her again in a heartbeat and could not recommend her highly enough.

Theresa is an exemplary real estate professional who helped us present our Willow Glen townhouse to potential buyers as well as helping us through the legal maze of selling our townhouse. She is very well organized, efficient and diligent in her advisory capacity. She effectively communicates in a timely manner keeping us well informed as we progressed through the many steps of not only selling our home but the escrow process as well. She is a person that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone seeking a competent real estate agent to help in selling their home.

We have enlisted Theresa's services 3 times and every single time she has hit it out of the park. She is amazing! Not only is she extremely knowledgable about market conditions, but she truly strives to get you what you want, whether you're buying or selling. She will go to bat for you!

Theresa was just the kind of agent we needed! Not only was she well-prepared as an agent specializing in Almaden, she knew how to advance the positives of the neighborhood because she is a resident in the Almaden community. Her expert analysis of the real estate market conditions in Almaden and the South Bay provided the guidance we needed to allow us to list our home at the opportune time. Confidently, yet patiently, she led us through the process of selling our long-time home, giving excellent advice on how to prepare for placing our home on the market. The contractors she recommended for painting and repair work, as well as the stagers and movers, were all excellent, both in their responsiveness to our requests as well as in the execution of their tasks. Theresa is knowledgeable, organized, responsive, encouraging, sensitive to our needs, and proactive. Her understanding of market trends and real estate processes, as well as her ability to anticipate our questions, gave us great confidence in choosing her to assist us. We feel like she has been a partner with us — allowing us to move at our own pace yet taking charge of the schedule when necessary. Theresa’s marketing acumen led to an impressive quick sale with very little inconvenience to us. And, even after the sale, Theresa’s responsiveness and follow through continue. We highly recommend Theresa to be your real estate guide.
