Lisa Schoenhouse
Proven History of Success

Lisa Schoenhouse’s passion for real estate began at an early age when her father, a real estate broker, took her along on weekends to look at properties “for fun”. She developed an eye for architecture and design, and an understanding of real estate as an investment that was a perfect fit for her future career.

Today, Lisa is a dynamic and market-savvy real estate professional whose clients’ satisfaction is paramount. She is a licensed broker and has had proven success in representing buyers and sellers in the greater Bay Area. From first-time buyers to CEO’s and developers, her customer base is as diverse as the properties she represents.

Real estate transactions require an agent that has proven industry knowledge and expertise. In today’s complex and fast paced market experience makes a difference. Lisa had been a realtor for more than 15 years and has navigated many challenging transactions. She has cultivated an acumen and instinctive real estate insight that can only be obtained through years of practice, and her expertise gives her clients a distinct advantage in any situation.

Lisa truly enjoys working with clients. She takes the time to listen carefully to their life stories, their vision, and their needs and goals – and then designs a custom plan of action for success. Her reputation for compassion, integrity, and tenacity on behalf of her clients has led to a business based largely on referrals. She wants her clients to have had the best real estate experience in their life and she succeeds!

Describing herself as a lifelong learner – in both her personal and professional life – Lisa can often be found exploring programs in business, human relations, and health. She strives to stay on the cutting edge of industry knowledge and loves a new challenge. When not working, Lisa enjoys spending time with her husband, six grown boys, and friends. She also Lisa loves discovering new restaurants and wines, cooking and entertaining, hiking, cycling and yoga.
