Having lived in 23 houses in her lifetime, Mekhala knows how important where you live is to your happiness, your career, your relationships, and your family.
Mekhala was born in Dubai at the very start of the city’s dizzying rise. Acres of sand turned to acres of lush grass overnight, and the tallest building, at 10 stories high, was quickly dwarfed by another one at 100 stories high just next door. After growing up in Dubai, New York, and Carmel, CA, Mekhala craved the buzz of a big city with a more cosmopolitan sway and made her way to London to study at the London School of Economics. During her final year at LSE, Mekhala joined a small tech start-up as their first employee. In a cramped office in London’s SoHo, Mekhala helped four founders build from their small idea to the internationally-recognized, top-ranked iPhone app Shazam.
After working in the tech industry for many years, Mekhala started her own design and construction firm, helping buyers and sellers turn small investments into big profits with her unique blend of real estate and renovation expertise, marketing skills, and tech-savviness. Mekhala comes to Avenue 8 from Sotheby’s International Realty, where she found her niche in knowing what buyers want and how to make properties irresistible to the smart real estate investor or family after their dream home.
Mekhala lives in San Francisco with her two young daughters. Her other areas of expertise include preschool/kindergarten admissions, new San Francisco restaurants, and international travel (which she hopes to get back to soon!).
