Buying or selling your home can be an emotional roller coaster. Gloria's passion is to help you make the best decisions, based on rigorous analysis and a genuine interest in your priorities. Her attention to detail and outstanding communication skills will help you navigate through one of the important financial decisions of your life.

Having spent fifteen years in technology and media, she understands your busy lives and need for an analytical mindset. Gloria lived in New York, Vancouver, Hong Kong, and Beijing, so she understands that local processes and subtleties are critical, and will guide you through the entire process.

Gloria focuses on finding you a beautiful home and an outstanding investment in Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton, Los Altos, Mountain View, or San Francisco. Her clients tend to be young professionals and international high net-worth individuals.

She has a Master's degree in Financial Engineering from Columbia University, where she was also a guest lecturer on Pricing, explaining the intricacies of value and price. Before real estate, her career was centered on using quantitative analysis to advise pricing decisions and sales strategies in advertising - from launching a Silicon Valley mobile advertising start-up to allocating multi-billion dollar budgets at CBS, NBC and Disney. Her analyses provided her clients a thorough understanding of the risks and opportunities associated with their choices, and empowered them to make well-informed decisions. Now she brings this quant skillset to her true passion - helping people realize their dreams through buying or selling homes.

Having lived and traveled in over fifty countries across five continents, Gloria finally put down roots in Palo Alto. Together with her husband and twin sons, she is deeply involved in the local community - volunteering as a court-appointed advocate for foster children in Santa Clara County, as well as completing multiple 3-day walks to raise money for breast cancer cures.




Gloria helps me buy and manage multiple properties. She offers unparalleled enthusiasm, service, and judgment to help me find the right opportunities. As an overseas homeowner and investor, she makes my life easy.

My first purchase was a home for my family in Palo Alto. Gloria carefully listened to our needs. She toured several neighborhoods and viewed homes with us, and helped us understand what kind of homes would suit us. She found us the right home (a brand new construction in a highly desirable neighborhood) while we were in Hong Kong. She effectively guided us to purchase the home without even seeing it in person. Because she took the time to learn our needs and tastes, it was the perfect purchase.

I subsequently bought other properties as investments. With her background in finance and local knowledge, Gloria provided excellent insights into the ROI of each of these opportunities. When the right opportunity presented itself, she worked tirelessly around the clock, despite the 15-hour time difference, to help us put in competitive offers and win. She also provides all the post-sale services to manage my investment properties (rental, property management, redevelopment, etc). I trust her with all my real estate needs in life.

Our family has been looking for a home in the Palo Alto area for two years. Gloria understood our needs and explained the pros and cons of the different neighborhoods and lots. Finally, Gloria showed us our ideal home and helped us to close the deal within one week at very satisfactory terms. She is also very attentive to our after sales needs and promptly responds to any questions and issues. This is very important as we live overseas and it is challenging to follow up from out of town. I highly recommend Gloria as a professional and realtor whether you are looking to buy or sell a home.
