About Alina

Alina is  your international real estate expert in San Francisco Bay Area. She is dedicated to helping buyers and sellers from all around the country and the world.

She enjoys representing a seasoned investor or a luxury property seller or buyer as much as she enjoys representing a first time home buyer on a tight budget.

Alina is a San Francisco property owner herself and personally bought and sold few properties throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Alina brings extensive business, marketing, public relations, journalism and economics research experience to her real estate practice.

As a student, she discovered a passion for journalism and broadcasting and went on to coordinate the launching of a national newspaper in post-Communist Romania. She wrote hundreds of syndicated articles, covering economic and political issues. Her interest in global affairs eventually translated into a PhD in Economics with emphasis in globalization.

Prior to her Real Estate career, Alina held positions of responsibility for economic development organizations, multinational corporations and nonprofits. She also successfully established and managed a San Francisco based import business.

Considering her background, real estate was a natural choice.

Alina considers herself an international citizen, which is a reflection of the city she proudly represents. She is thoroughly knowledgeable about the Bay Area economy and trends, as well as about different neighborhoods and micro markets, recognizing where there is new potential.

Taking her San Francisco based real estate business to a global level, Alina became a CIPS ( Certified International Property Specialist) and a member of the International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI). She keeps current with local and global real estate trends by participating in local educational events and international real estate conferences.

Local and global needs of humanity are some of Alina’s deepest concerns. She worked as a Public Relations/Fundraising Coordinator for Holt International Children’s Services, an international organization based in Oregon and she continues to support their activities in the Bay Area, as a volunteer and donor. HEIFER International is another favorite. Locally, she supports organizations such as EARN, Meals on Wheels and San Francisco Food Bank.

Arts and academic life always bring enriching and enlightening experiences for Alina. She is a member of San Francisco Film Society, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and California Alumni Association (CAA).

Alina is a proud member of San Francisco Association of Realtors, San Mateo County Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors and National Association of Realtors, International Real Estate Federation ( FIABCI) and TAN (Top Agent Network).
