“Living, loving and working as a Realtor in the East Bay has been a beautiful existence. I love being around like-minded, forward thinking people. I enjoy being able to play my bag pipes down the street of Montclair on St. Patrick’s Day with a cocktail in hand while my neighbors say hello and yell out requests! Although I have traveled the world, the Bay Area has my heart.” – Kristen
