After more than 10 years of unique hospitality industry experience, Summer was inspired to take her love of helping people to the next level and get her real estate license. This Bay Area native brings to the job a strong passion for customer service, having dedicated herself to delivering quality experiences to clients, from events to vacations and now dream homes.
She grew up in the real estate business — both her mother and grandfather are successful brokers — the fifth-generation Benician studied Hotel Management and Human Resources at California State University, Chico. After graduation, Summer followed her love of sports, travel and hotels to an Event Manager role for a sports travel company. She traveled the world with her clients attending everything from Super Bowls to World Cup. But home was calling her name. Upon returning to Northern California, she worked in a renowned tasting room, and then served as the Event and PR Manager at a successful wine and spirits company, in Napa Valley.
After she and her husband purchased their first home, she realized she was meant to follow in her family’s footsteps by becoming a Realtor®. She sought a real estate company that shares her commitment to exceed the client’s expectations.
Her passions include her family, snowboarding, yoga, baking, local and organic foods, and traveling to Lake Tahoe, her “happy place.” Her delicious Chocolate Chunk Cookies have been known to appear and then quickly disappear at her open houses!
