Shary Symon


Real Estate Advisor

Shary was born and raised in Palo Alto, and attended the local public schools. Upon graduating from college, she taught school, was an administrator, and then a consultant conducting work shops in education for the State of California.  She began her real estate career almost twenty years ago because she recognized a different approach to real estate was needed.  She understood the best way to serve clients was to be an advisor; not a sales woman.  She is well known in the community for her endless energy, creative marketing ideas, and renovating and staging vision.  She is also an excellent negotiator, and her honesty and dedication to the service of our clients gives us an advantage in today's market. She has developed our large referral business because of her excellent reputation with our clients and her thoroughness in handling each detail of their transaction. The needs of our clients are her top priority. Having lived and worked on the Peninsula her entire life, there is no substitute for her in-depth knowledge of our community, education system, and local real estate history.


Scott Symon


Real Estate Advisor

Scott was raised in Portola Valley, and headed east for college.  He graduated with honors from Boston College with a B.S. in Management and Finance, and quickly returned to the warmer climate of the Bay Area. Before directing his energies to real estate, he was Vice President of Investments and a financial consultant for a large brokerage firm.  He employs his strong financial background to analyze market conditions, investment opportunities, and economic trends.  Scott feels strongly about building lasting relationships with his clients by providing the best possible service and expertise in renovating, staging, contract negotiation and knowledge of the real estate market. He is a Certified Relocation Specialist.

Scott currently resides in Portola Valley with his wife (She is a teacher at Woodside Elementary), their young son and daughter, and their dog.  He spends his free time as a Cub Scout den leader and racing bicycles competitively.


Sean Symon


Project Manager

Sean entered the fold in 2005 and brought some much needed relief to our extensive renovation projects.  His responsibilities include supervising our listing preparation projects, managing our Palo Alto warehouse and assisting clients with their own "to do" lists.  He has several years experience in the construction industry, and he is wonderfully thorough and organized.  As a result, he has allowed us to better serve our clients by better organizing our operations and shortening the completion time of each project.

Sean was raised in Portola Valley, and currently lives in Palo Alto.  On the side, he owns three beauty salons in Redwood City, Palo Alto, and Los Altos and enjoys being an accomplished musician and a patient fisherman.
