Megan is the newest member of the team and continues to make great strides in her development.

Joining us three years ago in an admin support position, Megan quickly distinguished herself as a detail oriented trouble shooter who didn’t rest until everything was right.

She became a brokerage sales associate soon thereafter and continues to support the enterprise in all matters of sales and administration.

Megan will typically be involved in a dozen projects simultaneously but retains her engaging attitude and is able to convince one and all they are the most important people in her day.

We have big plans for Megan and know you’ll agree she’s a real find.

Megan lives in San Jose with her dog Blue.
