Experience, a family of Realtors:
Involved in Real Estate since 1994, Anita also grew up as Realtors’ daughter. Both parents were licensed in Arizona and the family emphasized the importance of buying Real Estate as investments. Many summers and weekends were spent fixing up rental property and improving investments.
One sister Lisa Anderson is a Realtor in Connecticut and works in escrow in a law firm. Another sister, Colette Kress is currently the CFO at Nvidia and earned a CFO of the Year by the Silicon Valley Business Journal: http://www.bizjournals.com/sanjose/news/2016/12/02/cfo-of-the-year-2016-colette-kress-of-nvidia.html Youngest sister Jennifer Husting has built serveral homes and a barn.
Anita is a single mother with a son and daughter in elementary school. “My son’s new favorite game is Monopoly and he wins!” Teaching them the value of owning Real Estate. Community Involvement has always been an important part of Anita’s personal life. She is a sustaining member of the Junior League of San Jose. Anita is an alumna of the University of Arizona. Her degree in Microbiology and Chemistry help make Anita a natural in analyzing numbers and reports. She was a college president at Kappa Alpha Theta.
Remodeling and construction: Anita’s background with her own remodels and building new construction has helped her clients immensely. Anita’s knowledge of the city planning process, permit process, architectural contracts, and of course, pricing makes her a natural choice for anyone looking to purchase a home.
“If a Realtor hasn’t completed a remodel or done construction, how can they understand the value of a new or remodeled homes or estimate pricing for a client to make a home perfect for a new buyer?” Anita has vision and has personally remodeled or built from the ground up more than 10 full homes and 12 apartments where she was the owner. Plus, there are countless clients’ homes where Anita has assisted, designed or managed a remodel.
Below are just some projects where Anita was the designer, developer and builder:

She states: “Sometimes it takes a good eye to see a home’s charm”. Since it is difficult to find the perfect home, buyers and sellers often use Anita as their Realtor for decorating, remodeling, or new construction ideas.
Sellers see a value to having Anita point out to prospective buyers the hidden beauty in a home. Buyers benefit from Anita’s vision and experience to find or create their dream home. Anita’s ability to match the most discriminating buyers to the most desirable properties is unequaled.
