  • Monica Carlson
    Monica CarlsonProperty Manager

    After graduating from San Jose State with a degree in Business Marketing, I began working full time in Real Estate. I started in loan processing and moved on to sales after receiving my Real Estate license in 2003. I joined the Real Estate Connections team in 2006. It seems to be a natural fit as I grew up helping my family with their rental properties. As a property manager I enjoy working with both tenants and owners.
