Amanda is born and raised in the heart of the Bay Area Peninsula in San Carlos, Amanda knows the ins and outs of this spectacular area. Amanda attended Notre Dame de Namur High School in Belmont and then obtained her B.A. from UC Davis in only three years. She graduated from UC Hastings College of the Law in 2007 and has been a sole practitioner attorney in the areas of Family Law, Estate Planning and Administration, Real Estate Law and Contracts for the last eleven years. Amanda is expertly trained in the areas of negotiation and mediation and there is no question that you want her on your side. Her experience as an attorney makes her more capable than other realtors to not only get the best deal possible for her clients, but truly understand and communicate affectively to meet their needs. If the need to buy or sell arises from a divorce or through an estate, there is no one better to guide and advise you through the process than Amanda. While her law practice is thriving, Amanda deeply enjoys Bay Area real estate and working with people to find their perfect property.
Temo...I was raised in Redwood City since I was 3 years old, I have seen first hand how the peninsula has developed and boomed as a world class economic hub for many companies. I’ve been successfully investing in rental properties for the last decade. I now have the passion to help others with strategy methods to acquire wealth through real estate ownership!
I thrive to provide excellence in client service with 24/7 availability. I’m honest and a hard worker. I believe strongly that it is not only my duty to represent my clients to the best of my ability, but to educate throughout every step of the process. Leveraging my experience in real estate investing, I like to use high-tech techniques to complete transactions in a quick but accurate fashion with the clients best interests at heart. I closely work with a team that includes top agents in the Bay Area. Backed by Keller Williams and a to a top producing team, I have access to abundant marketing techniques, experience, market insights and outside the box strategic resources. I’d like to meet you and share ideas and concepts on getting the most value out of your investment. Let’s pave the road to your future.
In my free time, I enjoy new adventures with my wife and 3 children (well 4 including our shih tzu Enzo). Whether its skiing the Tahoe slopes in the winter or exploring a new beach here in the bay area, I thrive for an extraordinary lifestyle and I hope you do as well.
Stephanie brings to her real estate career over 20 years of corporate experience in Internet Software, Data Management and Consulting.

Stephanie has worked for both small and large companies serving a wide variety of customers and leading diverse teams both onshore and offshore. She has traveled all over the world but what she has enjoyed most is building relationships and serving people right in her own community.
Stephanie understands that buying or selling a home changes peoples’ lives. It places them in a new environment, introduces them to new friends and shapes their life experience. A person's home becomes the vessel for their traditions and memories, and even an extension of their identity. To be a part of that personal journey is a great honor that she cares about deeply. She knows that each and every client and transaction is unique. She has built her career on careful listening and asking the right questions so that she can facilitate and engage her clients in a way that works for them and totally satisfies their objectives. Having worked with people from many backgrounds and age groups, Stephanie is well equipped to understand today's buyers and sellers by helping them to articulate and achieve their real estate goals.
In her words, "Living in Northern California has been an amazing experience. For the past two decades I've lived in multiple cities from San Francisco to San Jose and along the peninsula, witnessing the incredible growth and development of the greater Bay Area. Everyday, I marvel at the beauty and buzz of this fascinating place and I feel so fortunate to call it Home. I've loved raising my young twin daughters here with my husband, Dan, and our wide circle of family and friends."
Stephanie holds a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts), MBA (Master of Business Administration) and MIM (Master of International Management). She has traveled to 50 countries, including backpacking for 5 months in Europe and Africa. She is also a health and fitness enthusiast, a certified Personal Trainer and has completed six half marathons.
