Gea has been a licensed California Realtor since 2002. Her career began at Coldwell Banker's Saratoga office, where she specialized in selling high-end, multimillion-dollar homes. After five years, Gea moved her work to Willow Glen, where she has become an in-demand advocate for current and future homeowners.
Gea specializes in single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums, and relocation. She has successfully negotiated countless short sales, probate sales, and sales of bank-owned properties. As the owner of several investment properties herself, Gea can help guide even the savviest investors in choosing the most lucrative properties to suit their goals.
Gea is a fourth-generation resident of San Jose's Rose Garden neighborhood, and the proud niece of the late Susan Hammer, two-term mayor of San Jose. She is very knowledgeable about Silicon Valley resources and schools, having ushered her daughter, a UCLA alumna now in graduate school at Columbia University, through some of the best public and private schools in the Valley.
Gea loves the community she lives in and shows this through her involvement. She is an executive member of the Board of Directors of the YWCA of Silicon Valley, a member of the Board of Directors of the Willow Glen Downtown Business Association, she is on the Foundation Board of Abraham Lincoln High School, and is a co-founder of the San Jose Park Foundation's Rose Garden Home Tour.
