A Realtor and Designer at heart, Erika understands that the secret to obtaining top dollar is not only great market strategy, but also the emotional draw of a home's creative design.
Erika has been involved with hundreds of real estate transactions, initially beginning in the industry as a listing preparatory coordinator for the David Higgins Team, and later with David Higgins as a licensed agent. Erika possesses a firm understanding of the real estate process and how to help buyers win a home. Erika's keen eye and love for home design are a benefit to all who work with her.
Erika is a Bay Area native who first moved to Crocker Highlands in 2000 when she fell in love with the area and returned 10 years later to buy her first home. When she is not working hard to help her clients achieve their goals, Erika enjoys salsa dancing, skiing, wake-surfing, and travel. Her favorite activity here in Oakland? Culinary walking tours with her 3 hungry boys… where else can you enjoy banh mi, tacos, and sushi all in one block!
Erika earned her bachelor's degree in Public Policy from Wesleyan University in Connecticut. After a successful career in Public Affairs for national non-profits, she finally gave in to her love of home design and open houses and has never looked back! She is fluent in Spanish and proudly lives here in the Oakland-Piedmont area with her husband and three sons. Interests include travel, outdoors, entertaining, and of course family.
