Meet The Team
In 1975, I began my real estate career in the property management field. A few years later I obtained my real estate license and became a partner in the largest real estate firm in Alameda. I also worked in the mortgage lending business for approximately two years to gain a better knowledge and understanding of how the mortgage lending experience works.
In 1990 I chose to relocate my family to Granite Bay and establish our Real Estate Development Company and Residential Real Estate Firm.
After owning and managing one of the largest real estate companies and overseeing 75 employees, I wanted Granite Bay Properties to have a more on-on-one feel.
My desire as a Realtor is to provide a service to my clients that exceed their expectations. My career goal is to make the Real Estate process a positive and productive experience for my clients. Negotiating is one of my strengths. Many of my clients have been pleased with my ability to work through some very difficult situations. My goal has always been to work towards a positive outcome and to achieve that with integrity and determination.
I have been honored with the Masters Club award since I opened Granite Bay Properties, Inc. and am one of the top 2% agents in the local three counties. I consider myself to be the utmost Real Estate Professional. My desire as a Realtor is to provide a service to my client that exceeds their expectations.
I have served the Real Estate industry for more than 25 years as a top producing Residential Broker. I love helping buyers and sellers come together in a combined effort to make their transactions a win, win for all involved.
My listings include luxury homes in Granite Bay to horse properties in Auburn. There’s nothing greater than finding the perfect home for a buyer and making it a reality. Through years of experience I have learned patience and tenacity. It has earned me the loyalty of past clients, friends and family.
Granite Bay Properties has given me a platform with a team of individuals who specialize in the Tri-County Residential Real Estate market. We have more than 70 years of combined experience. We pride ourselves in helping homeowners and buyers through our professional consultation.

Irene was honored to be the first woman in over 100 years to be elected onto the board for the S.E.S. (Society of the Espirito Santo).
