Before getting his Realtor license in 2006, Carlos got a marriage license with me long before. He’s been working side by side with me ever since. Carlos and I taught dance (swing, country and zydeco) for many years in San Francisco and the North Bay. He holds a BA in Interdisciplinary Communications from San Francisco State University and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world. Carlos was also the staff designer for Indian Valley Colleges and the bi-coastal advertising firm Monnens/Addis. On top of this, he also worked as a newspaper production manager and as photographer for the San Francisco Symphony Chorus. Carlos is well versed in many fields and is always there to help with whatever arises. We truly appreciate his good nature and high spirits.
Before starting my real estate career full time about 15 years ago, my business background was in contract administration, paralegal work and venture capital coordination. Looking back it seems that my work experience had been the preparation that allowed me to achieve the Emerald Elite designation as a top producer for Sonoma County (and company-wide) for the last 5 years. Along with my Realtor® certification, I have attained the coveted CRS accreditation which is the highest credential awarded to residential sales agents. I am also designated as an EcoGreen Certified Realtor, a Senior Real Estate Specialist, Resort Second Home Property Specialist and Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist of the Million Dollar Guild. I believe in a Five Star Service, and I guarantee the same from my professional team and the related professionals that I recommend for your needs. Client communication and attention to detail are an integral part of my work, as well as disciplined and successful negotiation skills. I handle my real estate business with the passion and care that wins my client's loyalty, trust and friendship. Integrity is not just my way of doing business, it is the hallmark of every choice I make in life, and it’s what I offer to you.
We're happy to introduce our daughter, September Deignan into our real estate team. She's grown up her whole life surrounded by real estate, she was with me when she was five years old at showings saying things like it just needs fresh paint! She's always been an artist and loved old houses, antiques, design and with her fresh eyes and energy we love having her on the team.
