“Yeah, I was born in California Raised up by the trees Came out from the mountain Heart's following the breeze Following the breeze” Would be nice to march my feet down to old sequoia Yeah, those pines and those hills can mend my soul”. Avi Kaplan As a California native born and raised in Sacramento and a graduate of UC Berkeley, I have spent my life appreciating and celebrating the wonders of California — just plain LOVING where I live. Camping, hiking, fishing, kayaking, white water rafting, and beachcombing satisfied my adventurous spirit while helping clients find the home of their dreams provided an ongoing sense of career satisfaction. My early adult life was spent straddling between raising 3 children and finding homes for families in the Central Valley. As life propelled me forward, I became a Real Estate Broker, and once my children were launched, headed to the North Coast to build my dream home and continue my career in the world of real estate. The experience of arriving on the North Coast felt to be a homecoming.
As my partner and I began to build and design our home, all that I was and would be began to coalesce. I joined with Coldwell Banker where my life as a celebrated high producing Broker continued. Thirteen years ago, Diane Wilson and I joined to become what is known as the O’Connell Wilson Team. Together, we receive the highest of honors as top producers. Personalized, knowledgeable service is the fundamental key to real estate success and when you work with the team of Joan and Diane, you are assured of both. We are dedicated to making each real estate transaction as stress-free as possible and as full-time agents, our goal is to provide you with the utmost care, integrity, and the highest level of professionalism.
