Work with me!
To be entrusted with the sale or purchase of a home is a privilege that I never take for granted.
Even though I have represented some of the East Bay’s most distinguished properties, each time I present keys to new homeowners, or tell clients their home sold, the gratification I receive is better than anything!
I never settle for good enough, believe I must earn my client’s trust, and strive to exceed expectations.
I have enjoyed more than 14 highly successful years as a Realtor and former lender. 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 natural problem solver, experienced negotiator, and have detailed 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. Raising our twins is what my husband and I are most proud of. Jonathan is graduating from The University of WI-Madison, and Rachel is not far behind at St. Mary’s. We were Kurtis Murphy’s American family while he studied in San Francisco from Ireland. We still claim him as ours. Kurtis is an up and coming singer/song writer. Watch out for his band, “Vinci”!
In my free time, you’ll find me on hikes with Karma, the family Labradoodle, experimenting with cooking, and cheering on the Packers, Badgers, Warriors …did I say sports? Currently I am working with Karma to visit hospitals and offer free pet hugs. I am especially passionate about my work with Healing the Children.
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
As a strange year wound down, the real estate market wound up, up up. Bay Area home prices continued their extraordinary rise in Alameda and Contra Costa counties in December. Which got us wondering: Is this a sign of...READ MORE

Did you hear the news? The median price for all homes sold in California topped $700,000 during the pandemic, setting a new record. How quaint (blogger’s voice drips with sarcasm). Here in the East Bay in November, the...READ MORE
