To be entrusted with the sale or purchase of a home is a privilege that I never take for granted.
I never settle for "good enough", believe I must earn my client’s trust, and strive to exceed expectations.
I have enjoyed 19 highly successful years as a Realtor and former lender and have represented some of the East Bay’s most distinguished properties.
My success is, without a doubt, the result of the positive relationships I have built, and “good old-fashioned hard work”. Networking is what I am most known for. I am a natural problem solver, experienced Certified Negotiator and Pricing Expert, and have deep local market knowledge and global connections.
I still have wanderlust after an exciting 28 year career with the airlines, having traveled over much of the world and all 50 states (not counting all of the moves as a military brat)!
We moved to Walnut Creek from Wisconsin when our kids were in 3rd grade. (GO Packers!) Raising our twins in the Bay Area are what we are most proud of.
In my free time, you’ll find me on hikes with Karma, the family Labradoodle, listening to books, & experimenting with cooking. I am passionate about Healing the Children, a non-profit that arranges medical missions for children around the world.
Working with Vikki was such a positive experience from beginning to end. She went above and beyond on a daily basis, was always very accessible and communicative and made me and my husband feel like we were her only client. She’s extremely knowledgeable in ALL areas of the home-buying and home-selling process and she always took the time to educate me and my husband throughout the process so that we felt confident to make decisions on our own.
After my wife and I called several other Bay Area Realtors, we were becoming disheartened with the slow response times. After calling Vikki, she responded back to us within an hour. We will never go with anyone else and highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their house! Vikki is the BEST!
If it wasn’t for Vikki, my family and I would not be living in our dream home. Vikki made us feel like we were her only client and her #1 priority since the first day worked together. She was always incredibly accessible and responsive, very respectful of our “line in the sand” when it came to our budget and offers, she worked relentlessly at showing us homes, any time of the day regardless of her personal commitments, and she always made us feel like she had our best interest.
Vikki is an outstanding agent. She gave me all the information I needed to properly clean up my house, stage my house and then put it on the market. She even recommended getting a home inspection months before it went on the market to fix many of those little things that potential buyers always try to negotiate down on the price. The asking price was not lowered, in fact all potential buyers bid the asking price or higher and it closed in under 30 days from listing date. Thank you, Vikki
Feel that chill in the air? That’s the East Bay real estate market cooling a few degrees as part of a normal seasonal slowing trend. Normal? What’s that?? We didn’t get to experience this kind of typical slowdown last...READ MORE
