EXPERIENCE I started working in Real Estate in December of 2002 when I joined Werner Properties. I have listed and sold properties and represented buyers. I have experience in unique life style properties, condominiums, and residential homes. My expertise with the internet and computers helped me advance beyond the proficiency of long term realtors. I was born in Oakland and raised in the Walnut Creek area. I have lived in the Central Valley for over thirty years. . I joined People & Properties Sotheby's International Realty in August of 2010 and moved to Pacific Sotheby's Int.in August 2013. I choose Sotheby's for its reach and because I feel that our valley has yet to be discovered especially when people think of places to live in the world. I think that our area is one of the most beautiful and fertile valleys that includes a wonderful climate and I would like to be instrumental in bringing to attention on a world-wide basis the Central Valley's value and opportunities. Together with my husband, I was a successful small business owner for over thirty years in the food industry serving US Presidents, Senators and Congressmen as well as families throughout the Northern and Central Valleys of California and the Sierra Foothills. Involved in civic activities and wife of former San Joaquin County Supervisor, Larry Ruhstaller.
