Founder - Nest Team

San Francisco’s East Bay has been my home since 1990. I’m a proud local, and a graduate of Carondelet High School in Walnut Creek and Saint Mary’s College in Moraga. My husband, RJ, and I are now raising our family (son, Matteo, daughter, Mila, and dog, Flash) in Walnut Creek, and I have a deep knowledge and appreciation of the neighborhoods, schools, and vendors who are part of our lives. Sharing my own personal knowledge and experience brings me great satisfaction, and clients have said that my insights are “invaluable” to the home buying and selling process.

Strong local connections have been a cornerstone of my real estate business since I began my career in 2004. Over 90% of my clients find me through personal referrals. I work with first-time home buyers & sellers, seasoned investors, and longtime homeowners looking for a change. Over the course of almost two decades, I have nurtured relationships with countless brokers and agents throughout the Bay Area. This has allowed me to facilitate transactions through off-market listings, which can be extremely advantageous for my clients. To date, I’ve been part of over 1,000 property sales, and I’ve consistently been a top performer. In 2021, I was ranked in the top 1.5% of agents nationwide (based on 2021 RealTrends rankings by sales volume).

A recent client explained "Daniella truly goes above and beyond in an unobtrusive way.” I stay very involved from our first meeting to your last signature; you will not be handed off to an assistant." Instead, you’ll get as much support as you need through what I know can be an exciting, challenging, and scary experience. “We knew we weren’t her only clients at the time,” wrote one couple, “but she sure made us feel that way!” This is possibly the best compliment I can receive, and I want all my clients to feel this way.

Whether you’re buying or selling, I’m here for you. Let’s talk about how we can work together to achieve your goals.
