More About Me

About Umala

My Real Estate career began in New York City, with experience in both residential and commercial properties; from studios to 50+ unit buildings. I eventually relocated back home to California and I'm now able to combine the competitive tools that I picked up on the East Coast along with my homegrown knowledge of the Bay Area neighborhoods and markets.

I'm a University of San Francisco graduate and a proud native of the Oakland and Berkeley area!  My greatest pleasure is helping others to develop and sustain their roots in these culturally rich and thriving communities. Alongside Better Homes & Gardens Reliance Partners, I'm able to offer individuals the most up to date and proven tools on the market, ensuring their home has maximum exposure worldwide.

My most important goal in a transaction, is making sure that the client’s needs are taken care of.  I'm always highly accessible, and available to guide you through any obstacle or challenge the home buying or selling process may produce.  I measure my success by the joy my clients feel upon the close of escrow, constantly finding ways to give this success back to others. When I'm not working, you can find me enjoying the culture and energy of the Bay Area, and always giving back to the community through mentoring and working with children.  A portion of my commission from each real estate transaction will go to an organization that helps provide housing and or food to those in need in the Bay Area.
