Real Estate

Overview

I consulted with East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation in the development and execution of a housing project based on a business model that property buyers come together into cohorts that in turn act as neighborhood economic revitalization agents. I have also developed a program to address foreclosed homes through utilizing the homes as an economic redevelopment engine that was presented to the California State Assembly, and or Van Jones’ Rebuild the Dream organization, I have researched and recommended policy to address the national housing crisis and foreclosures.

Over seven years through my startup and operation of a Century 21 real estate brokerage in the Lake Tahoe and Truckee communities, I developed expertise in the areas of green building, green finance, affordable and workforce housing, and community organizing. Through my extensive work with the Placer County Redevelopment Agency and Domus Development, I was a key player in the development of the first affordable housing in the North Lake Tahoe region.
