Gretchen Swall offers the diverse experience and qualifications that few of her peers can match. Excelling as an Investment Banker for Merrill Lynch in New York City for nearly 20 years, and achieving the distinction as Managing Director, Gretchen thrives in the fast pace and high demands of business. Always intrigued by architecture, interior design, and real estate, the transition to representing buyers and sellers in the competitive Silicon Valley market was a natural fit.

Gretchen’s connectivity in the local community enhances her clients’ success. She and her husband, a Bay Area native, relocated from New York City to Los Altos in 2001. She savors the suburban lifestyle now and is actively involved in her children’s school as a volunteer in the classroom. When away from her work as a full-time Realtor, you’ll often find her walking the Stanford Dish trail, working out in a spin class, or enjoying a coffee break in downtown Los Altos or Palo Alto.
