I was born and raised in Turkey. After graduating with a B.S. in Geological Engineering from the University of Ankara, I came to the Bay Area to attend an international diploma program for Business Administration and Marketing at UC Berkeley. I was charmed by this special place and have called it home for the last two decades.

"Home is where our hearts are.” Whether you are a seller or buyer, I can help you achieve your goals. Using my strong communication skills, attention to detail, analytical thinking, strong work ethic, and eye for design, we can get your home ready to sell or structure a winning offer for your next home purchase.

On a personal note I am always in for: activities with my 5 year old, family time, bar method workout sessions, sailing, a good read, kindness and compassion, heart to heart conversations, deep friendships, fashion shows, ballet and opera performances, jazz concerts and art shows.

I am a proud member of the National Association of REALTORS®, California Association of REALTORS® as well as the Oakland/Berkeley Association of REALTORS®.


I'm honestly so grateful to have worked with Filiz on my journey to buying my first home. I knew straight away with her that she's someone I could trust. She was incredibly patient, attentive, and caring through the whole process, and really took the time to help me find a home that fit all my needs (which at my budget, wasn't easy!). Filiz is such a warm personality, delivers even the hardest news with kindness and humor, while remaining completely professional. And don't let her kindness fool you! She'll work hard to get you the information you are looking for, and never leave you feeling unattended to. I'd recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Bay Area, and definitely look forward to being able to work with her again in the future!
