Yvonne’s background is primarily commercial real estate encompassing corporate positions as an employee and consultant for companies like Jones Lang LaSalle, Union Bank, Intuit, Synopsis and Good Guys and as a commercial real estate broker in the San Francisco Financial District.   She also worked for four years as Regional Sales Manager for SBT Accounting Systems.   These positions required strong analytical and evaluation abilities, sales and negotiation, and successful sales quota achievement.
