Having grown up in the Willow Glen neighborhood of San Jose, I was lucky enough to experience the Monterey Bay and its beauty on weekend getaways from a young age. My dream of making this area my family’s permanent home came true in 1993, when I opened what’s become the highly successful Alain Pinel Realtors in Carmel.
Prior to living in Carmel, I spent 10 years living abroad in India, Spain and Taiwan with my husband Bob and our three children Greg, Rob and Amy. It was during that time that I realized how important finding the right home was in creating a foundation for our children to thrive.
That experience, along with my early love of architecture and design is what led me to my 30-year-deep real estate career, where I’ve ranked in the top 3 percent of the industry nationwide year over year and closed more than one billion dollars in personal career sales.
There’s nothing I enjoy more than educating buyers and sellers on all this area has to offer, providing exceptional service and most of all, helping them find their dream home.
When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling, spending time with my nine grandchildren and supporting the arts and various philanthropies in the local area.
