BEST REALTORS IN SAN CARLOS CA
Broker Associate / Partner, Interior Designer
As a real estate agent, I enjoy helping people feel at home in their new San Carlos CA house and neighborhood, whether they are relocating from across the pond or somewhere closer. I have firsthand experience raising children who went through the San Carlos school system and have gone on to be successful in college.
Most people can’t remember their realtor’s name, but my clients know my name because they hear from me on a regular basis through my client appreciation program. I know how hard it is when you don’t know anyone in your new surroundings, so I can recommend the best schools in San Carlos CA to my clients as well as local good eats, health care professionals and other community resources. I give back to the community by supporting other small business owners and am the leader of the San Carlos Chamber of Commerce Business Networking Group, for which I became the 2018 San Carlos Chamber Champion.
I am one of the luckiest guys in the world – I have a great family and I love my job! I always tell my kids to find something to do in life that will allow them to wake up each morning and look forward to their day. I’m very fortunate to have found that when I transitioned into real estate in 2003.
I’m extremely privileged to have the opportunity to assist people find the home of their dreams and/or transition out of their existing home. I do not take this privilege for granted nor the trust that my clients bestow upon me. People deserve expert advice and support, that is why I have invested a great deal of personal time and effort to develop valuable skills that better assist my clients.

Viv is terrific!
Viv is terrific! We are first time home buyers. Viv was great to work with–she listened carefully to us, helped us figure out what was realistic in this crazy market, and helped us make an offer in lightening time (she stayed up late into the night answering all of our questions and remaining calm and patient). If you are looking in the San Carlos area and surrounding areas I highly recommend Viv!
