Boasting dual-licenses as a California and Hawaii REALTOR®, Airiel arrives equipped to tap into the investor communities that toggle between the magical Islands and all hamlets surrounding our majestic Mount Shasta. Having spent a childhood in Sacramento, and an adulthood in five other states, even Italy, this mountain girl possesses the moxie needed to adapt to all manner of environments as well as the finesse required to represent all manner of transactions.
Airiel began her real estate career as Administrative and Property Manager at Lake Almanor Brokers in Plumas County, on the shores of the very waters that spellbound her parents to become homeowners in her youth. Prior to joining Coldwell Banker Mountain Gate Properties, Airiel primarily operated out of Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties office in Kailua where she still hangs her Hawaii license. In the Spring of 2016, Kevin was offered a Forensic Archaeologist position for the Department of Defense, prompting the duo’s to Oahu’s metropolis of Honolulu.

It was on Chico State’s campus that the couple met in their shared department. Many clients delight in discovering Airiel devoted almost a decade to archaeology and museum conservation before settling on her passion for “Realty Matchmaking.”
Over the years, Airiel based a majority of her business on the nurtured relationships within the military circuit. Placing incoming service members and their families in homes, while referring others changing station to trusted agents on the mainland, fueled her sense of fulfillment to our Nation that she had never before experienced. “My goal is to place as many personnel in homes as possible…helping them achieve ownership of the very land they defended,” Airiel explains of her outreach education on the VA Home Loan Benefit. Both Airiel and her husband passionately seek to continue their efforts of contributing to the Veteran communities of Siskiyou County.
The combined skills gained in professional and academic spheres has prepared Airiel to interact with our diverse populations of visitors and residents. “There’s no denying I lack the traditional MO of salespeople. That I’ve made no attempt at hiding it speaks to confidence in my eclectic background. The stark contrast in my history appears either very odd or very interesting…Yet it serves to highlight my chameleon talent. Adaptation follows environment. Successful sales are, likewise, anchored in instinct.” Airiel’s philosophy is to motivate and educate clients, adding value to their lives and a sense of control during what can be a perplexing task. Real estate is often people’s largest transaction, and homes still represent one of humans’ most basic and important possessions.
