“Excellence is not a skill, it is an attitude.” – Ralph Marston

With a diverse and deep background in Sales, Marketing, and Finance, Rhoda brings a wealth of experience to her clients as their mortgage loan advisor. Her years as a top merchant and leader in the retail and wholesale fashion industries, creator and owner of a successful business, Gatherings and persistent, avocational experience as a Day Trader in the stock markets have equipped Rhoda to naturally always think outside of the box, seek what is possible, master change with the complexities it brings and always look at the bottom line …the economic sense of the possible solutions…the impact on one’s net worth.

Rhoda considers herself her clients’ advocate. “From start to finish and beyond.” She is solutions and client satisfaction driven. Articulate, naturally creative, accessible and someone who believes that no question is too small, Rhoda makes and takes the time to see that clients are seen, heard and supported. She meets with clients one on one, listens and can be counted on to simply tell the truth, be ethical and to care. “No stone is left unturned” in anticipating (and resolving) potential issues. With first time home buyers and experienced property owners, Rhoda works with all evenly. No deal is too small nor too complex. Rhoda is committed to be in front of issues, to eliminating surprises and to providing a stress- free transaction. She believes that home ownership should be a right, not merely a privilege, as there is strength in the sanctity of one’s home. Her commitment to excellence and care have given her a 80% return of past clients and a business based largely upon referrals.

After travelling the world with the fashion industry, Rhoda followed her heart to the Bay area. Her tireless energy, curiosity and love of learning will find her poking about, exploring the great out of doors with her beloved dogs, Zoe and Starbuck, hitting the parks’ trails, gardening, or curled up with a good book. She is an avid adventure traveler, a wild life advocate, lover of Kenya and the Warriors! Rhoda is committed to doing well so she can do good and is committed to making her community a better place to live. She is an active member of the Oakland Berkeley Association of Realtors Community Foundation and a member of its Board of Directors.
