Karen Haze

Business Manager

Hi my name is Karen and I love being at Palm Valley. I was the Community Manager of Villa Veneto in 2001, promoted to Community Manager of Palma Sorrento in 2002 and then promoted to Community Manager of Santa Palmia in 2003. My husband and I moved to Austin, TX in 2006-2007 and then moved back to Northern California. I recently was lucky enough to be able to come back and work at Palm Valley and with E&S Ring in September of 2008. I love to spend time with family and friends, make cards/scrap booking, play games – Rock Band/Wii, watch cooking shows and many other shows – Thank goodness for DVR! ….and most recently been addicted to Facebook!

Justine Almonia

Hello all! My name is Justine and I am a California Certified Residential Manager. I have been working in Property Management for eight years, half of them here at Palm Valley. I am truly passionate about what I do and want to ensure all of my residents are proud to call where they live, home. On my days off I love hanging out with my family. My husband, son Maverick and I enjoy sports, movie nights, barbequing, and the outdoors. I am addicted to Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino’s, so if you see me around or at our local Starbucks, please feel free to say hello! I look forward to meeting you soon!

Nery Peralta

Resident Services Specialist

My name is Nery Peralta, I’m excited to start in this new venture with E&S Ring! I was in property management in 2002-2003 with another company and left when I obtained my California real estate license in November of 2003. I have been practicing real estate since that time and I am currently a student at Gavilan Colege working on my Communications Degree. I’m a U.S. History and Wold History buff. For fun I enjoy playing chess, spending time with my family, watching football, soccer, and basketball, and reading-lots of reading. My dream vacation would be to take a trip to Rome, Italy. I look forward to a long career here at E&S Ring!

I’ve been married for a wonderful 15 years and enjoy spending time with my wife and 2 sons I’ve been working at Palm Valley since June, 2001. My favorite vacation spot is definitely Las Vegas. In my free time, I enjoy Camping and BBQ – I make a mean batch of BBQ ribs!

Hello everyone! My name is Martin and I am originally from Mexico City. I’ve been at Palm Valley for 5 years. On my days off, I love just relaxing and watching good movies (would love to hear your suggestions!). I also enjoy a good game of soccer – both playing and watching! I am a big fan of Law and Order: SVU – it’s intense and keeps you interested.

Hello my name is Jose, born and raised in San Jose. I enjoy staying busy and active. In my spare time I like to work out, watch scary movies, and eat Chinese food, but most of all I love to be with my son Jayden!
