Raised in Bangladesh, Rumana moved to the United States with a vision of a better life. She attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP), earning an MA in Sociology and upon graduating, took a job as a crisis counselor for a domestic violence agency in Tucson, AZ. She quickly worked her way up from Crisis Counselor to Executive Director, ultimately playing a critical role in the passing protective legislation for survivors of intimate partner violence. After moving to California with her husband, she became the Program Director at a homeless shelter for families. Much as she enjoyed applying her degree in Social Work, after moving to the Bay Area, she turned her skills into a career as a realtor. Helping both buyers and sellers, she consistently ranks among the highest of realtors, including the top 1% and appearing in media forums such as The Wall Street Journal’s Real Trends: America’s Best Real Estate Agents. She has also been #1 agent for Keller Williams (Northern CA and Hawaii region). Though she is no longer in what might be considered a “helping profession”, Rumana’s background academic and nonprofit background taught her that understanding the needs and concerns of her clients is paramount to helping them achieve their dreams.
Rumana continues to give back to her community. She has served on boards of several domestic violence agencies and, a firm believer in the value of education, contributes to numerous local schools and educational charities. She is proud to serve on the board of Rebuilding Together Peninsula and is pleased to contribute to such a worthy organization.
