About Me

Rebecca originates from Yorkshire, England, where she graduated from Durham University with a Bachelors degree in Civil Engineering. In the UK she enjoyed a successful career as a Consulting engineer, working on highway design and construction projects. In 1999 Rebecca married and moved to San Jose, embarking on a real estate career at Coldwell Banker in Los Gatos where she quickly became a top producing agent. In 2006 Rebecca was one of the founding agents of the Sereno Group. Rebecca and husband Mark live in the Los Gatos Mountains with their four children. The Smith family also includes dogs, cats, horses, goats, bunnies, chickens and a pig!
Rebecca enjoys working with buyers and sellers in and around Los Gatos, Saratoga, Campbell, San Jose and the Santa Cruz Mountains. "I work closely with my clients, helping them to make good decisions about what is often the most important financial investment of their lives. Buying a home is an emotional investment too, and I focus on recognizing the individual needs of each client and then taking the time to ensure they are matched with their ideal home. My aim is to take the stress out of the transaction and wherever possible make it a fun and enjoyable experience!"

 Rebecca's professional philosphy is to provide an exceptional level of customer service and to keep building a business based on referrals from satisfied clients. Her clients best interests always come first and foremost,  she is honest, sincere and 'down to earth'. Her negotiating skills have enabled her to put together some difficult deals and see them through to successful completion. She works diligently to guide her clients through the listing preparation or offer process, then inspection and contingency periods, handling the paperwork with professionalism and efficiency to ensure that everything goes smoothly right through to the close of escrow and beyond.

 Rebecca's husband Mark is a senior loan consultant at Victoria Capital in Los Gatos. He has succeeded in securing great loans for her buyers, often where others failed or quoted much higher rates. If you have just started thinking about buying a home then the first step is to be pre-approved, but this is a quick and painless process with a little help from Mark. You can rely on Mark for a factual, truthful and reliable assesment and detailed explanation of the different loan options available, or useful advice as to how to prepare your personal finances and credit score for a future purchase.
