Monica Pauli, San Francisco Founding Partner and Kate Tomassi, Residential Real Estate Sales from leading real estate technology company, Compass, join States Title CEO Max Simkoff to discuss the use of technology to drive transactions in today’s market.

About Monica Pauli: For over 19 years, Monica has established herself among the Top Producing Agents in the country. With over $150 million in sales in the San Francisco Bay Area last year, she is highly sought after by clients and greatly respected by fellow agents. She’s recognized as one of the best-trained negotiators and skilled professionals in the field, though clients know Monica by her warm rapport, boundless energy, and desire to give back to her community. This is evidenced by her charitable work as a seven-year board member for the Children of Shelters mission, which provides support for the educational and emotional needs of children in transitional shelters. Monica’s real estate expertise as well as her passion for the people she works with makes her a unique agent in Bay Area real estate.

She is certified as both a Seller Representative Specialist and an Accredited Buyer Representative. Working with both buyers and sellers is key to her keen understanding of how to help her buyer clients come out on top in competitive multiple-offer scenarios, and to help her seller clients get the best price and most solid terms possible.

After receiving her undergraduate degree at Barnard College in New York City, Kate earned a J.D. from Fordham University School of Law, and subsequently practiced in both federal and state courts as a litigator based in Manhattan, developing and honing her advocacy and negotiation skills. She also holds a Master’s Degree in Journalism from Columbia University, which led her into business and legal journalism, reporting and writing for publications such as and The American Lawyer magazine.
