Growing up in Monterey, Holly’s family bought and sold houses throughout the area offering her the opportunity to become familiar with buying, selling and fixing up homes at an early age.


Graduating with a Master’s Degree in Social Work from San Jose State is indicative of her wanting to make a better community for everyone. She has organized neighborhood watch meetings, meet and greets for incoming kindergarteners and middle schoolers, coat drives, neighborhood yard sales and large scale Easter Egg hunts.


This desire to bring people and resources together to make a better community is what inspired her to create Willow Glen Charm, a Facebook page with over 80,000 fans that is all things Willow Glen and beyond. What 80,000 fans means for you is a large marketing avenue for selling your home or finding a home.


Lastly, as part of Sereno Group, Holly donates 1% of her commissions to various charitable or community-minded groups to further make positive differences in the communities we live in.
