I haven’t lived in the Bay Area for years. The towns have changed since I grew up there – some of them once farm land or considered “boonies” are now busy, bustling communities. Shannon was brilliant at driving my husband and I around the different areas, giving us a real overview of each town, the background, the current draw, prices, and why some may have a unique quality that may be appealing to us. She was knowledgable, asked pertinent questions about our lifestyle and needs, was confident and above all, patient, which we really appreciated. She embodies the perfect combination of someone who has lived in the area all her life so knows her way around, yet has a fresh, unjaded approach to finding a perfect home in today’s world.
