Stacey Thornberry-Martin

I have lived in the San Leandro and Castro Valley areas all my life. I graduated from California State University, Hayward with a BA in Environmental Studies. After backpacking through Europe I decided to go to St. Mary’s College to get my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I taught 2nd grade in Richmond for a year before settling down to teach Kindergarten and 1st grade in Livermore. During this time I married my husband Joe, who was also a teacher for the Oakland Unified School District. After teaching in Livermore for 7 years I had my first child. When Luke was born I decided to give up teaching for a while to stay home with him.

I have always had an interest in real estate, so I decided to work on my getting my real estate license while I was staying home with my baby.

I now have three sons, and I also have gotten my Real Estate Appraisers License. Between taking care of my children, selling real estate, and working in appraisal, I am an incredibly busy person, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
