Jaime is a sixth-generation Bay Area native with an extensive 25+ year licensed career in real estate. She began her San Francisco real estate profession shortly after graduating from Chapman University and has enjoyed successes with many of the city`s top companies including Compass, Pacific Union, Hill & Co. and TRI/Coldwell Banker. After decades of city life, she moved to Marin County from San Francisco in early 2020 and founded Haute Homes Real Estate.
Jaime has had a diverse real estate career and enjoys passing along this knowledge to her clients. Her professional background is unique and arguably adventurous. In 2010 she seized a real estate opportunity and unexpectedly moved and opened a successful boutique real estate office in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was an eye opener doing business in South America and quite the experience! After a few years abroad, in 2013 she decided it was time to return home full time and back to focusing on the San Francisco Bay Area real estate market. During her time abroad, she was featured as a host on shows for HGTV including "House Hunters International", "Bang for Your Buck" and "Live Here, Buy This!"
Jaime takes her client's interests truly to heart. Her keen intuition in the profession came naturally thanks to her father who ran their family real estate brokerage for over 45 years. Over the past few decades, she has worked diligently and her experiences are unparalleled in the industry. Assisting clients in locating the perfect residence, investment, or development project is her passion and implementing her extensive knowledge is vital. She will say that much of the fun is in the negotiation process and making both sides feel they made a great deal is the goal.
From a standard residential trade to a 1031 dual-state exchange, to a complicated probate sale or multi-family investment…Jaime has represented clients successfully in every type. She attacks her profession with a personable approach and reputation of integrity, trustworthiness, and unrelenting dedication to her clients. Decades of knowledge in market values, hundreds of contract negotiations, and forward thinking are essential for the ultimate goal of closing the deal. The market isn't always an easy one...she understands the highs and the lows, but most importantly knows how to be creative to capitalize in any market.
She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Legal Studies with a minor in English from Chapman University. She also spent time in Washington D.C. at a top Pennsylvania Avenue law firm in undergrad, with countless days on the Hill and in the Supreme Court, it was a coveted prestigious internship and unforgettable experience. She is a licensed Realtor in the State of California and member of the National Association of Realtors.
In her spare time she is usually gardening or hiking with her yellow Labrador. She loves to travel extensively, but locally you might see her racing around in her late father's 1958 Porsche Speedster on a fun weekend adventure or headed to the mountains for skiing and outdoor fun. She is an avid sports fan and carves in golf too as a member of TPC Stonebrae Country Club located in her native East Bay hills.
Jaime is very involved in the community and has volunteered over the past 25 years for several philanthropic organizations; including chairing many fundraising committees, for BizWorld, Bay Area Red Cross, SF Ballet, SF Symphony and most extensively for the Junior League of San Francisco. Her most rewarding though was with "Back on Track", a non-profit tutoring program for under-privileged children.
