Meet CYNTHIA

Associate Agent

Cynthia is passionate about real estate. As a real estate investor, landlord, and
homeowner, she has purchased, remodeled, and built more than a dozen properties,
mostly in the Bay Area. With her decades of experience and now as a licensed agent,
she is dedicated to helping others achieve their property dreams.
Her expertise in understanding how people live and work in a space allows her to assist
buyers in envisioning how to customize a property to make it feel like home. For sellers,
her extensive remodeling experience enables her to suggest and oversee
improvements that can make a property more attractive to potential buyers.
Cynthia believes that real estate should work for you, whether it's supporting how you
enjoy living in a space or by having your home help pay the bills. She has helped many
people earn extra income from their primary homes or vacation properties through her
role as an Airbnb Ambassador.
Finding the right property can be challenging and exhausting but Cynthia is committed
to using her enthusiasm, development experience, and market knowledge to make the
process smooth and even enjoyable.
She hasn’t found a neighborhood she doesn’t love, and has lived in Cow Hollow, Noe
Valley, the Inner Richmond, Pacific Heights and Russian Hill since arriving in San
Francisco in 1980.
During her real estate investing, Cynthia has navigated a lot split with the city to build a
single-family home; converted a small, single-family home into two luxury condos,
gutted kitchens and baths, and spruced up properties to make them move-in ready,
working with a talented group of architects and designers, city planners, contractors and
handymen, lawyers, 1031 exchange agents, and loan brokers. She loves supporting
others who take on these project and shares her resources and know-how with her
clients.
Prior to becoming a real estate agent, Cynthia worked as a public relations consultant
for early-stage lifestyle and high-tech companies. After settling in San Francisco as an
advance person for a presidential campaign, she transitioned to a career in public
relations, working at Ten Speed Press and then building a publicity consultancy. She
also spent time living abroad, working as an account director for Hill and Knowlton in
Singapore and as a freelance publicist in Italy.
Cynthia serves on the board of the San Francisco Home Sharer’s Democratic Club and
the Small Property Owners of San Francisco. When not working in real estate, Cynthia
can be found hiking the trails of the Bay Area, sailing in warm climates, or improving her
Italian language skills. She’s a big fan of San Francisco treasures including SF Jazz,
the Marsh Theater, and the San Francisco Jewish Community Center and her local
Jane Bakery.
