Hello 828 and thanks for your comments and praise, I certainly do appreciate it.
Area Pro Realty, the company that I work for, started only in December 2009, and our current websites do not allow me to post a CV or resume, but you can find out a lot about me here on Trulia. I typically do not post my picture on any websites--so while I'm frequently answering questions all over the web, there are no pictures of me on any internet site. However, if you are a long time resident of Santa Clara Valley, you've probably seen me or heard my voice. In the 90s, I wrote for the San Jose Mercury News Real Estate section where I answered questions about real estate, and, yes, I think there was a picture printed of me occasionally. I was also often seen on Channel 54 KTEH where I was both in front of and behind the camera and did some of the voice-over work for the station--I did it enough of this that people recognized me in stores and public places, which was unnerving. I have been on local radio and television much in my youth, and now I live a nicely anonymous life of a Realtor and author.
But most of all, 828, I find that my picture does not change who hires me. Most of my clients hire me because they've read my blogs and my answers to questions, and they know that I am smart, experienced and real estate savvy, and, for them, that's really the most important aspect of the Realtor--not how I look.
Again, I certainly appreciate the accolades, and hope that my earlier post provided you with some thoughts for this home. if you should need my assistance, please contact me.
