About Me


I grew up in Rockford, Illinois along the mile wide Rock River. Sixty miles away I went and graduated from the University of Wisconin in Madison. A history major--which I loved--but, alas, it would not serve me in the 'real' world. So, I became a musician in Nashville, song-writer and music writer for Rolling Stone among other music magazine.

Moving to San Francisco, I learned valuable publicity lessons as a publicist for a large travel film company. Those lessons served me well when I became a real estate broker in 1980. Since then, I worked with top brokerages including Coldwell Banker, Pacific Union and Alain Pinel. Before and after, for over 18 years, I founded and became president of Shoen Real Estate. Our crew works seamlessly to ensure and guarantee our clients' success.
