About Montana Gabrielle Hooks
DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY TO REAL ESTATE.
A life-long SF Bay Area resident and the daughter of a local Realtor, I have always had a passion for real estate. I’ve witnessed the Bay Area’s incredible growth first hand, and one thing is certain: securing homeownership is more important than ever!
Between the extensive marketing knowledge gained from my 15 years working in content for top Bay Area companies like Adobe and nimble creative agencies, my extensive East Bay entrepreneurial community ties, and my real estate-seeped childhood, I am uniquely suited to guide my clients through each part of their Bay Area real estate journey with ease.
As someone who moved around an extraordinary amount as a child, I understand the importance of setting down stable roots. Whether you wish to create a sense of lasting security, or add real estate to your investment portfolio, there is no greater gift than home ownership – especially for historically marginalized communities.
Helping families build generational wealth is my passion. If that’s your goal, I’d love to be your partner in success.
