I’ve lived in the SF Bay Area for the last 20 years, and I simply adore it. Before I became a real estate agent I had my own interior design firm, which gave me an eye for the details that matter most when you’re buying or selling a home. I see the potential for spaces in a unique way, and as a mother of two young boys, I am always thinking about how spaces can evolve with your family.

I pride myself on delivering results for my clients and exceeding their expectations. I am extremely proud to be among the top 5 Realtors in San Francisco out of over 5,000 agents. Recently I was ranked #65 top small agent teams nationwide by WSJ Real Trends. It’s about so much more than just closing a deal – for me, it’s personal. I’m highly invested in ensuring my clients have my undivided attention and get what they need. To do this, I carefully limit the number of clients I work with at a given time, and I have the best support team in the business to back me up.

In addition to helping others buy and sell residential real estate I am also an active investor. I own several residential properties in various locations and I also invest in commercial real estate through syndications. Being in the trenches I’ve learned the business inside and out and I love to share this knowledge with my clients and peers.

I can also be found on national stages educating other agents, in conference rooms at local tech companies or working with financial planners teaching teams about market cycles, how to get into contract in a competitive situation, how to find a deal in any market or why some homes in the same neighborhood sell for vastly different prices.

Philanthropy and community involvement are very important to me. I am committed to giving 5% of my income each year to a wide variety of organizations. To learn more about the organizations that we’ve partnered with, please scroll down to the bottom of this page.

When I am not working, you can find me trying out new restaurants in the city, especially in those neighborhoods where I have homes listed. I love spending time with my husband and kids, exploring our city, traveling, hiking, biking, and hanging out with good friends.

``I honestly do not know where this woman finds her limitless energy and enthusiasm. I don't think I ever waited more than five minutes for a reply to an email, at any time of the day. Any question I asked was answered completely and honestly. She is a powerhouse.``

Philanthropy and community involvement are very important to me. I, along with my colleagues at Compass, actively support local organizations in our efforts to improve San Francisco and the living conditions of others.

Through volunteer efforts – as well as charitable donations – I am committed to giving 5% of my income each year to a wide variety of local organizations and have been doing so since our very first sale.

From shelters to school arts programs, from food drives to counseling, we contribute to the organizations that make a positive difference in our community. I’m always looking for opportunities to give back. If you have a favorite organization that you support please share it with me.

Here are a few of our current recipients plus a couple of the Krishnan Team’s personal favorites:



We’re teaming up with local organizations to help educate them about the local real estate market. Interested in setting up an informational seminar?
