Gloria uses analytical rigor, construction experience, and high-touch customer service to help her clients achieve their housing dreams. With over $150 million of homes sold, including two of the most expensive homes sold on the Peninsula in 2018, she is a trusted adviser in her clients’ busy lives. She has built from the ground up (or is currently developing) over 30,000 square feet of luxury single-family homes in Palo Alto, Los Altos, and Atherton, and over 15,000 square feet of luxury remodels. With work that spans real estate transactions, real estate development, and high-touch customer service, Gloria tirelessly enables her clients to focus on what is important in life – creating great memories with family and friends.
Her Columbia Master's degree in Financial Engineering and experience in media finance enable Gloria to be a shrewd counselor about the financial side of the investment in a new house. Previously a guest lecturer on Pricing at Columbia University, she brings a wealth of analytical insight to this critical facet of buying or selling a home. Tax considerations, incorporating the right investment vehicle, and setting up the right financing are part of the network of experts she brings together.
Active management of construction projects is critical to realizing the dreams of many clients. With a reliable team of architects, designers, and tradespeople, Gloria makes sure her clients’ projects get executed on time and on budget. Weekly meetings with contractors, days spent picking the finishes, and site walk-throughs are the norm, so that her clients have the security that the project is on track.
Gloria has served some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs, high-tech executives, and investors. Her network of both affluent home-owners and top-notch service providers makes her an invaluable enabler of every aspect of home ownership.
Her global background (born in Beijing, grew up in Hong Kong, college in Canada, graduate school in New York) mixed with her 12 years in Palo Alto give her an understanding of what makes our community special, and how buyers from afar might become a part of it. She has just completed the design and ground-up construction of her home in Palo Alto, where her twin boys are preparing to attend public school.
