Meet Monica Pauli

For over 20 years, Monica has established herself among the Top Producing Agents in the country. With over $200 million in sales in the San Francisco Bay Area last year, she is highly sought after by clients and greatly respected by fellow agents.

She's recognized as one of the best-trained negotiators and skilled professionals in the field, though clients know Monica by her warm rapport, boundless energy, and desire to give back to her community. This is evidenced by her charitable work as a seven-year board member for the Children of Shelters mission, which provides support for the educational and emotional needs of children in transitional shelters.
