Some agents move into real estate from other careers later in life. Team La Bouff is different -- I am a lifelong professional in the housing and real estate fields. My husband and co-conspirator has lived and worked in Silicon Valley his entire adult life. Consequently, we are highly experienced in many different facets of the local environment and its real estate implications. Please read on to learn a little more about us.


Aileen began her career working in housing and construction management over 30 years ago. It wasn’t long before she moved into real estate, commencing a highly successful career in residential investment management. She advanced with progressive responsibility, ultimately becoming Broker/Manager for a firm operating three real estate offices. She also served as a founding member of the managing committee for L. J. Hooker Property Investment Management Services (the largest real estate group in the Southern Hemisphere). In this capacity, she set and implemented policies and procedures for the ethical and efficient management of investment property throughout the Asia Pacific region. Since moving to the United States in 2001, she has focused on property sales. First at Coldwell Banker, and now at Sereno, her continued success on behalf of her clients has gained admission to the prestigious Los Altos Real Estate Masters Group, as well as many awards for excellence and achievement for her efforts on behalf of clients.

John’s interest in real estate centers on two very different things: first, the oasis that Aileen has created for him in Mountain View, and second, anything he can do to help Aileen be even more awesome at what she's awesome at: helping other people successfully buy or sell the home that means so much to them. He has no illusions about who in the family is best at dealing with the big and small concerns that populate the process of a real estate transaction, so he leaves those in the capable hands of Aileen. Behind the scenes, though, when he can, he helps out with keeping the business and communications working smoothly, and when pressed enough (it doesn't take much, really) he's usually willing to produce a bottle of homemade wine and stand there expectantly waiting for unsuspecting clients to admire his feeble efforts.

About that oasis: Aileen has the greenest of green thumbs. John enjoys nothing more than relaxing with a cigar and a beverage in the lush, verdant back yard she has orchestrated, and if you're one of Aileen's clients you should be warned you may be invited to join.
