Danelle grew up in the San Joaquin Valley in Central California where she met her now husband of 30 years in a fruit packing shed, because that’s what you did back then in the summers. This is where her strong work ethic began. She moved on to Northern California and then settled in Orange County where she and her husband raised their two boys. Danelle’s attention to detail, perseverance and love for challenge and helping others flourished during her 25 years at PIMCO, as Trading Floor Manager and Vice President at the Newport Beach based investment company. Looking for ways to improve each process she was responsible for was a trademark to her success. When one of her coworkers challenged her to join Team in Training and complete a triathlon while raising funds for Leukemia Lymphoma Society Danelle didn’t hesitate. She not only was a top fundraiser but crossed the finish line after a mile swim, 25-mile bike ride and 6-mile run. Keep in mind she hadn’t been on a bike since her banana seat and had never ran a mile in her life. Danelle enjoys listening and helping those around her plan and strategize to meet their goals or just provide a sounding board. Danelle has devoted herself to her passion for helping others and using her skill set here in Austin, and is dedicated in her pursuit to sell, or find the right home to suit her client’s needs and lifestyle.
