Born in Castro Valley and raised in Fremont, and with nearly 50 family members scattered from San Jose to Santa Rosa, Paulette Trauty knows the Bay Area better than most.
After attending college in Sacramento, she settled down in the Central Valley to raise her family. In 2009, her skills as a professional baker took her to Davis, where she owned a bakery while her daughters attended the university. Always active in the community, she founded a Community Giving Tree to benefit youth and families in need and worked with local shelters to provide donations year-round.
In 2014, she returned to the Bay Area, where she led a chain of bakeries with locations spanning from Campbell to San Francisco and all points in between. Her passion for helping others led her to work with the largest affordable housing non-profit in California, sparking her desire to help people find the perfect place to call home.
Her love of travel and adventure has taken her around the globe and throughout California, and she knows and values the diverse communities that make this a remarkable place to live.
Paulette enjoys writing, gardening, gourmet cooking, and seeing the world with her husband and their two Basset Hounds, Indie Anna and Sallah.
