I am a Finnish American who is thrilled to have moved to Napa. This town is lovely and is just the right size: small enough, large enough. Lots of exciting things going along the Napa River and more terrific things to come. I have been a Napa Realtor since 1976 and I also taught Real Estate at the Napa Valley College for over 25 years. Many of my past students became friends, clients and agents.
Every transaction has an objective and I do my best to get the job done and get to the desired goal. My business comes from referrals. Selling or buying a home is a team effort and it takes a good agent, a good lender and a good title company to make it all happen.
I work with local, reliable professionals and stay involved from start to finish, so if you have questions or are just curious about something, I hope you will call. Straight answers, no hassles, that's my style. I am your information source, you are the decision maker. When you need me, I am here.
Home is not a house but a warm feeling. A place where family gathers and memories are made and projects are completed. Here Italian cobblestone driveway leads you to the front door & the light and bright interior welcomes you. Beautifully remodele...View Property

Heli has been our realtor on three properties. She is knowledgeable of the local markets and makes the process of buying/selling a home effortless for her clients. She manages the process and stays on top of the details. She has a wonderful up beat personality, which makes her a delight to work with. We can’t offer her a more positive recommendation.
Heli was patient, knowledgeable, and consistent with a newbie to selling a house. She understood how emotional the process was for family, and brought humor and caring to our interactions. She was remarkably calm and focused while handling her own displacement during the fire in the Valley and while traveling later in the fall. Heli is a pleasure to work with and I will recommend her in the future.
