Licensed since 2005, Brook got her start in real estate working for Pacific Marketing Associates in San Francisco where she was a valued member of the sales and marketing team on eight high-end residential condominium developments. Born and raised in the East Bay, Brook now brings her extensive knowledge of East Bay neighborhoods and market savvy to both buyers and sellers at Gimme Shelter. Because Brook has practiced real estate through several large market shifts, her clients have the benefit of a breadth of experience that ranges from short sale negotiation to luxury marketing. Prior to entering real estate, Brook was the co-founder and director of BayVAN, a professional art consultancy that sourced local artwork for commercial and residential developments throughout the Bay Area. At BayVAN, she served as the main client liaison, using her strong organizational and interpersonal skills to recruit new business, negotiate sales and leasing contracts, and project manage large scale art installations and purchases. Brook is currently deepening her business skills through the pursuit of an MBA in Socially Responsible Business at Mills College in Oakland.
