With over a decade of sales experience, Umala truly understands the real estate business, and how to ensure that her clients always receive the highest quality care. Her Real Estate career began in New York City, where she worked with both residential and commercial properties; from studios to 50+ unit buildings. She eventually decided to relocate back to her home state of California, where she would be able to combine the competitive tools she picked up on the East Coast along with her homegrown knowledge of the Bay Area Neighborhoods and markets.A University of San Francisco graduate and proud native of the Oakland and Berkeley area, Umala immediately thrived back in her old stomping grounds. She has found her greatest pleasure is in helping others to develop and sustain their roots in these culturally rich and thriving communities. Alongside Better Homes & Gardens Reliance Partners, she is able to offer these families the most up to date and proven tools on the market, ensuring their home has the maximum exposure worldwide.For Umala, the most important aspect of any transaction is making sure that the client's needs are taken care of. She is a highly accessible agent, always available to guide her clients through any obstacle or challenge the home buying or selling process may produce. She measures her success by the joy her clients feel upon the close of escrow, and is constantly finding ways to give this success back to others. When she is not working, you can find Umala enjoying the culture and energy of the Bay Area, and giving back to her community through mentoring and working with children. A portion of Umala's commission from each real estate transaction will go to an organization that helps provide housing and or food to those in need in the Bay Area.
