I’m out of here! I’m currently on my way to St. Louis, Missouri to speak on a panel with 3 other 30 Under 30’s.

I’ve talked to you guys before about my secret fear of public speaking (I guess it’s not-so-secret-anymore). I’ve always appeared to be pretty good at it, but on the inside my stomach turns, my heart races, & I have no clue what is going to come out of my mouth next.

Nerves won’t stop me from speaking my mind in a room full of talented folks or from saying “HELL YES” to an opportunity to travel to a new place and share ideas with other professionals.

What do your nerves try to trick you into avoiding? What are you missing out on because you’re nervous or afraid? What can you say “HELL YES” to that will make you feel brave and empowered? @ San Francisco, California

I’ve never been big on watching sports. There’s so much emotion tied up into something that I have no control over (I know, you think wearing your lucky t-shirt affects the outcome of the game, but I feel powerless to control the score). I get swept up in competition and get frustrated when my teams losing. So I rarely watch sports, but when I do, it’s not to actually watch the game.

The main reason I watch any games is to spend time with people. To get that sense of community. To drink good drinks. To eat good food. To cheer when something good happens, even if I don’t understand what. To be bummed together when something crappy happens.

It’s mostly to be with people like these guys.

My all time favorite ice cream flavor that I could literally eat every day without getting sick of it is MINT CHIP. Comment below your favorite flavor and maybe I’ll buy you some someday!

I’m considering stealing an idea from my colleague @ljzlopez & serving ice cream during my open houses this summer.

If you’re a local Realtor make sure you don’t miss the next event thrown by my wonderful team over at @obar_ypn It’ll be an ice cream party! We’ll also be learning about CRM’s, but it’ll mostly be ice cream.

It’s a beautiful Saturday for an open house! 2907 Harrison will be open today from 2:00pm - 4:30pm!

One year without this guy. One year without hearing him say, “I’m proud of you Mija”. One year without him posting sweet comments all over my page. One year without my dad telling jokes, eating popcorn, or telling me some random story he heard on the news.

But I can still hear him saying he’s proud and I can still guess what he would comment and I can still smell the popcorn.

Our loved ones aren’t ever truly gone, are they? Their presence can be felt, seen, heard, remembered.

Can you take a minute to remember someone today? & reflect on a life lesson they taught you. My pops taught me vulnerability, love, & to just eat the damn sweets already.

What did your person teach you?

I was taking selfies in one of our listings today and the best one turned out to be the one of me coughing. Is it just me or do we become more sensitive to pain and weakness as we get older?

I’ve been so dramatic about this cold I have. When I was younger I didn’t care if I was sick. It never slowed me down. Now it totally puts me on my ass.

Anyone else feel this way? Please tell me we’re all becoming helpless babies again & it’s not just me?

Also, how amazing is the lighting in this kitchen? It’s for sale y’all! You can buy the lighting that makes coughing look good - go to 4015linwood.com for the deets.

& please let me know if there’s anyone in your life you think I would like to connect with. I’m here for relationships. Let’s get off our screens and into each other’s arms 💕

I'm just a bill.⁣
Yes, I'm only a bill.⁣
And I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill.⁣

Met with the amazingly sweet and smart Barbara Lee today to speak on issues affecting homeownership. You can tell she’s genuinely passionate about making housing more affordable & accessible to all - especially the underserved groups. Homeownership rates are super low for people of color and that’s something that needs to change. It all goes down here. @ Washington D.C Captital City

Locked out of my own damn listing. To all my #realtor friends out there: do you hate keys as much as I do?

Do they haunt your pockets?
Do they cause frustration when you’re trying to show a property and the listing agent didn’t label any of the keys so you don’t know which is which?
Have they ever simply not worked randomly when you’re trying to open the door for the open house?

Tell me your stories in the comments ⬇️
OR better yet: tell me your SOLUTIONS. Keyless entry perhaps?

Well this is me. Waiting for Daniel the Locksmith to come save me from my misery.

Meet Eva & Lauren. They were referred to me through a friend via Facebook (thanks, Kim!) So we set up a time to meet in person.

We met at my office on a Sunday morning to go over the home buying process. They were excited, nervous, kind, & inquisitive. They were interviewing three different buyers agents & I appreciated their honesty and openness with me.

That same day, they went to a few open houses where they ended up falling in love with one in Berkeley.

They were quickly preapproved with my fav loan peeps over at @the.villa.group & we submitted an offer about a week and a half later.

A month after initialing meeting, they are officially HOMEOWNERS!

Lauren is excited to learn the history of her new neighborhood while Eva is excited it’ll take her less than 10 minutes to get to her favorite restaurant, @cheeseboardcoll

I’m excited they’re less than 5 miles from my place! I can’t wait to help them throw an amazing housewarming party and to continue the friendship we so quickly built. Congrats! 🎉 @ Berkeley, California

Hey ladies!! Come and volunteer with me this Saturday! Bumble is creating a new feature in their app that helps get folks off an app and into their communities to volunteer.

In celebration, we’ll be helping Women's Day, a brand new program in the Oakland community for underserved women to receive help & hope. They offer showers, food, clothes, pedicures, hygiene kits, etc. This is a brand new facility that will be opening up. There is space for 20 women to volunteer on Saturday 5/11 to help paint the new facility.

Volunteers must sign up via this link: http://bumbleoakland.cityteam.volunteerhub.com/ (you will see a calendar with the Bumble event on May 11).

It'll be so fun to meet new women who want to give back to our community! We'll have time to chat and hang out while playing a small role in opening this new facility.

A homeless Oakland couple moved into a $4 million Piedmont home. Then came the calls to police

Imagine how hard it would be to walk down the street where you live, where no one looks like you - & feel the stares, the fear, & the unwantedness. I think even if we imagine this, we don’t REALLY know how this would feel.

What McGrath is doing isn’t only helping this couple begin to thrive instead of survive, he’s helping his neighbors by opening their eyes to the biggest issues facing the Bay Area, homelessness & housing affordability. I hope the neighbors are talking to their children about these issues. I hope they take this as an opportunity to teach their children to open their hearts and eyes to others. & to welcome these new Piedmont residents.

They were poor, black and homeless. He was white, rich and lived in a 4,500-square-foot house in Piedmont.

Look mom! I made it! I was invited to be in a focus group today to give feedback on a new program for CA Realtors. It’s goal is to assist our clients in reviewing and understanding our real estate contracts. We ended up deciding that the program needed lots of revisions, but once it receives these tweaks I think it could be a super helpful tool to use when educating clients. I love getting involved in the behind the scenes organization of California real estate! 🤓

The last few days were spent masterminding with some of the most brilliant, unique, and badass Realtors across the country. These are folks who have some pretty amazing stories and are all willing to share business practices with each other.

Being a 30 Under 30 Realtor is one of the largest honors in our industry. It’s all about building relationships with other amazing Realtors in order to better yourself.

I have never been more inspired. Thank you all for being a part of my journey. Can’t wait to see what’s next! @ Charleston International Airport

People watching is the single best thing about New York City. Every type of person is represented here. I used to think San Francisco was diverse. But as the years go by it feels like people of color are far and few in between.

Not here. Every shape and every color is represented. & things are so accessible. The subway is everywhere and super affordable. Central Park is huge, clean, and beautiful. Now if only they could figure out how to make housing more affordable.

Apparently all these cherry blossoms just began to bloom. Perfect timing for my visit! I am so so lucky to be able to see this.

I’m back in NYC! I’ll be traveling solo this time, so might not get as many incredible photos. Unless I want to be that girl with the selfie stick or tripod. So here’s a photo I never posted from my first ever NY trip.

I’ll be here for a few days and plan to run Central Park, eat a lot, work a bit, and do a ton of people watching.

Have you been to NYC? Got any recommendations? Drop dem in da comments!

I can’t remember a time where people from every part of my life were in the same room. From my childhood, teen years, family, nanny years, and until now - it was beautiful to see all of my loved ones in one place.

My 30 under 30 celebration had me completely surrounded in love and support. I’ve never felt anything like it.

I am so grateful to everyone who played a role in me being able to have this moment. This moment for myself and for my loved ones. Thank you all for your never ending support and encouragement. My life wouldn’t be the same without you. @ Oakland, California

My broker loves to embarrass me. 😂

03/28/2019

People have been asking me how I feel after accomplishing my huge 30 Under 30 goal. They also want to know how I celebrated.

1. I feel excited, enthusiastic, relieved, and most importantly - grateful.
2. I celebrated by eating hot cheetos, watching Harley dig holes on the beach, & popping champagne.

Others ask me what’s next? Well, I still haven’t done my taxes this year. So I guess that’s what’s next 😂

I LOVE YOU ALL. Each one of you has affected my life in a way that has lead me to be the person I am and to have the successes I’ve accomplished.

Whether you were a shoulder to cry on, a colleague to ask advice from, a friend to laugh with, a social media buddy to follow, or a client to guide - you have impacted my life in some way, shape, or form.

You are important to me & I love you.

03/24/2019

Whether or not I make it into the final 30 for REALTOR Magazine’s 30 Under 30 I am going to freaking celebrate. & I hope you guys will join me.

Thank you for all your support throughout this journey. It seriously means the world to me to feel so supported and encouraged. I’ll find out the final results tomorrow and will keep you posted.

I love you guys!

Served up some hot tea and donuts at today’s open house! Towards the end it actually started hailing!

This past week I’ve been pretending the weather is warming up by wearing skirts and spring colors (hence the pink pants that my best friend gave me). But there’s no denying we are definitely still experiencing winter.

Guess I’ll just have to embrace the cold and head to Tahoe 🤷🏽‍♀️

How Oakland Has Seen A Big Drop in Crime — Without More Police

It seems like the crime decline isn't caused by an increase in the number of officers, but by a change in their deployment. Operation Ceasefire works by "directly intervening with the people most at risk for committing violent acts, community groups and law enforcement hope to break the cycle of violence, both by providing people willing to make a life change with the opportunity to do so and by taking people who refuse to off the streets."

https://thebolditalic.com/how-oakland-has-seen-a-big-drop-in-crime-without-more-police-290eede56b5b

The Oakland Police Department still has fewer officers than before the Great Recession, but Operation Ceasefire has led to a historic drop…
