A REALTORÂ® is a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION of REALTORSÂ® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.
I graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 2002 with a degree in Journalism and Political Science, I spent two years selling residential real estate in the Greater Boston Area. Upon moving back to the Bay Area, California in 2008, I went to work in the affordable housing sector for HomeBricks, Inc. HomeBricks was the in-house sales team for the largest non-profit developer in the state of California, BRIDGE Housing. I worked as HomeBricks' stewardship, marketing and lending services coordinator from 2008-2012. In my time with HomeBricks I participated in the successful closing of over 280 residential housing units to first-time, low to moderate income homebuyers. I most recently worked at Marvin Gardens Real Estate in Berkeley from November 2012 - September 2013. I was on a team with my Mother, Kathie Berg, who is an owner there and has 30 years of Residential Sales experience herself. I participated in the closing of nine listings in the 10 months that I worked there. Although my Mother and I were having a blast working together, and I was sad to move on, I am thrilled to be working at the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Northwest Real Estate West Seattle Office.Code of Ethics
The Code establishes time-honored and baseline principles that come from the collective experiences of REALTORS® since the Code of Ethics was first established in 1913. Those principles can be loosely defined as:
Loyalty to clients;
Fiduciary (legal) duty to clients;
Cooperation with competitors;
Truthfulness in statements and advertising; and non-interference in exclusive relationships that other REALTORS® have with their clients.
