Agent Profile

Miriam Wells is a Bay Area native, born in Palo Alto and raised in Marin County and San Francisco. Before becoming a real estate agent, Miriam was a foreign correspondent working with major news networks around the globe. She has lived and worked in Beijing, China; Kabul, Afghanistan; Montreal, Canada; and Paris, France. Her stories and photography have been published by the New York Times, CNN, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Agency France Presse, Al-Jazeera, and others. She holds a master’s degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York City.

Miriam now lives with her husband and their toddler in San Francisco. She is excited to bring the skills she developed as a reporter to her clients to help them find and get their dream home. Miriam is tenacious and hard-working. She is not afraid to delve into the details in order to get her clients all the information they need to make informed decisions. She brings her journalist’s spirit of ethics and accountability to her real estate practice, as well as the attentiveness and investigative know-how to recognize problems and solve them quickly. She attended some of the Bay Area’s top schools and can help families navigate school choices in their home buying and selling process.

A lover of art and architecture, Miriam admires the diverse styles of Bay Area homes, especially Spanish Colonial Revivals in Palo Alto, Queen Anne Victorians in San Francisco, and Eichler Mid-century moderns in San Rafael.
