Born & Raised in Sacramento
I grew up all over the greater Sacramento area (Roseville, Citrus Heights, Arden/Arcade), and after a brief 5-year relocation to Los Angeles after high school, I came back to Sacramento knowing it was where I wanted to put down roots. I brought along with me my husband, Richard, a native New Yorker, who immediately fell in love with our city. Our daughter attended the same preschool in Sacramento that I did (even had the same teacher!), and is now attending Mariemont Elementary. I always knew my heart was in Sacramento, and I love to call it home.
A Family Tradition
My family has always been local business owners in Sacramento (Darzell Hearing Aid Services 1960s-2000, Stagedoor Comedy Playhouse 1970s-2002), including selling real estate. I've been in real estate since 2000, starting in 1031 Tax Exchanges in Los Angeles. In 2004, my mother, Sharmayne, and I joined Lyon Real Estate to sell homes together. It has been a rewarding experience to help people make their home and investment dreams possibilities. I've gained a greater affection for Sacramento through my career, having met so many people that happily call this home.
Tom & Kathy Phillips Team
In 2013, I joined Tom Phillips, the #1 Top Producing Agent in Sacramento, and his wife, Kathy, on their team. Tom & Kathy are involved community members who grew up in Sacramento and are raising their children here now. I'm proud to associate myself with them, and eager to extend the increase in real estate services to my clients that are now available to me as a part of their team. They successfully bridge a great career with personal service, which is my singular goal in real estate. As a part of their team, our clients can be certain they will receive the highest level of service coupled with the experience and knowledge that we collectively bring to the table.
