Founder | Realtor®
Helen Gardin cares deeply about her clients and uses her industry knowledge and skill set to guide them through one of the most important financial decisions of their lives, supporting a diverse clientele with both her talent and compassion.
Growing up with a mother who owned a San Francisco real estate brokerage gave Helen early exposure to the business. In addition to the wealth of practical experience she picked up over those years, it was Helen’s mother’s entrepreneurial drive, determination, and work ethic that left an indelible impression and played a major role in Helen’s professional endeavors. Further complimenting her real estate expertise is Helen’s proficiency in handling objectives such as client satisfaction, finance, productivity, and operations management—skills she perfected during her former career as a general manager in the foodservice industry.
An agent since 2013, Helen relishes the always-changing nature of real estate and continually learns and implements new ideas so that her clients always benefit from the most cutting-edge strategies. From first-time and move-up buyers to empty nesters, veterans, retirees, and investors, she’s been there for them all. As for sellers, Helen manages their renovation projects and ensures that the work is on schedule. Before she and her business partner, Dale Warfel, created Pulse Real Estate, they had been the No. 1 real estate team at their previous brokerage for several years. Additionally, Helen is an Endorsed Local Provider for Dave Ramsey and also holds the Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®) designation.
Helen is a Bay Area native whose children attended Bellarmine College Preparatory in San Jose. Her interests outside of real estate include supporting the Wildlife Conservation Society, where she believes in the importance of preserving forests and wetlands to protect wildlife for future generations. Hiking and working out are her other pastimes, and she spends time every day being grateful for the people in her life.
