About Me

I am a native of San Jose with a passion for home design and reimaginig interior spaces. With my background in art, studying at San Jose State University and experience in design, I have spent the past 23 years turning old, run down homes into beautiful and inviting spaces. In 2005, I took an addition step by getting my real estate license and have been working with clients to design for resale or creating inviting living spaces in their newly purchased home. With 13 years of successful Real Estate under my belt, I can offer the best of both worlds in Home Sales and Design Consultation. 

My experience in business includes a background in technology, management and customer service.  This combination of skills my gives me the ability to market and sell your property using traditional and technology driven methods.

Here are some comments from my clients:


Randy Hamilton wrote..."We worked with Nora when we were in the market to buy a house in the Rose Garden area of San Jose (thank God we didn't buy at the time!).  Nora is the VERY BEST!  Nora is at the top of her game always.  And she's a great person to work with.  Nora goes above and beyond to provide nothing short of exemplary service.  I 'highly' recommend Nora!"


Debra McCarty said..."Nora has been a friend for years but I really know her best in the role as Real Estate Agent.  I have worked with Nora, first buying my home and now selling it.  She has excellent follow through and is very efficient especially in “crunch time”.  Her knowledge of the Real Estate transaction process and her creative approach allows her to react to all situations in an educated manner. I trust her advise completely.  Nora will remain my valued friend as well as an excellent Real Estate advisor. Bonus - she has excellent taste in home interiors!"
