Meet Mina


Deep listening, problem solving, effective communication and negotiation are my specialties. Prior to my real estate career, I spent over 20 years as a counseling professional helping individuals and couples navigate difficult circumstances, conflict, significant life decisions and major life changes - both wanted and unwanted. I have a deep commitment to honesty, integrity, and clear, reliable communication in all my business practices. As my client, I will help you navigate through your real estate journey whether you are buying, selling or investing. It’s my commitment to give you an exceptional service experience and help you create the outcome you desire. We will delve deeply into your preferences, needs, lifestyle and future goals to find the most perfect home and situation for you and your loved ones. While real estate transactions can be stressful and unexpected challenges may arise, I have the training and backing of an exceptional team and the Compass brokerage to carry you through any ups and downs that might occur.

Originally from South Florida and born to Greek and Colombian parents, my exposure and interest in real estate began in childhood. Throughout the years, I watched and learned as my parents navigated the world of investing and managing a multi-family apartment complex in Ft. Lauderdale and later large multi-family properties in Texas. This has inspired me to make real estate my career and help others leverage the power of home ownership and wealth creation. As a life-long learner, I constantly seek to improve and deepen my real estate knowledge through coursework, reading, and
collaboration with other real estate experts.

My formal education includes a Bachelor degree in Health Science and Business Administration from the University of Florida and a Master of Science degree in Psychology from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I have been fortunate enough to have lived along California’s coastlines – Southern, Central and now Northern. Rooted in the Bay Area since 2002, my husband (a San Leandro native) and I have owned a service- focused business together for over 12 years. My son is Castro Valley High School Trojan Marching Band Member where I volunteer from time to time. I also lend a
helping hand at the San Leandro Food Pantry. I love to travel, hike, play pickleball, cook healthy and not-so-healthy recipes, and spend quiet time reading and learning. My rescue Chihuahua, Uma, is one of my greatest joys. I speak Spanish and love to meet other South Americans and Greeks who love real estate!

As a proud member of the Kim Ott and Associates Team, you as my client will have the backing of over 25 years of collective real estate experience and Compass’ cutting edge technology and tools to manifest your own real estate aspirations. Whether you are a first-time home buyer, an investor, or a homeowner looking to right-size, relocate, or retire to fulfill your life long dreams, reach out to me to be your partner on this next phase of your journey.
