I was born into one of the oldest families in Tuscany in the beautiful medieval city of Siena, Italy. In 1986, I moved to the United States after residing in London for a few years. I opened and managed several high-end boutiques in exclusive locations on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, Fifth Avenue in New York, and Kalākau’a Avenue in Honolulu. With fourteen years in top management positions in the retail industry, my love for dealing with high-quality products and international clientele led me to open a business creating unique events and special services for local and international clients.  We also offer estate management for some of our clients. 

I have been a resident of Honolulu for over 25 years, and as a real estate investor myself, I am extremely knowledgeable of the changing environment of Honolulu and its surroundings. My work ethic is simple:  to provide the best customer service possible by giving 100% of myself to insure the best possible buying and selling experience.

If you are in the market to buy, sell, or invest in a property, you will not be disappointed in using my very personable, friendly and professional service.

In addition, if you are interested in purchasing a dream home in Tuscany, Italy, I work closely with agencies in Siena, and can locate the perfect vacation or investment home to meet your needs.

I hope to meet with you soon, and please feel free to contact me for any questions you may have.
