Mark Martinho

Realtor®, J.D.

I was born in Canada, but at the age of two, my family decided to return to Portugal where I spent the next decade growing up. When I was almost 12, my family moved to Santa Barbara and then a couple years later to the Bay Area. During my college years I worked local construction jobs while earning my Mechanical Engineering degree coupled with a heavy course load in business. After graduation, I worked as an Engineer in Fortune 500 companies like IBM, Seagate and Applied Materials. Some years later I left engineering and employed my business education at Merrill Lynch as a Research Analyst covering companies with multi-billion dollar market caps. One of th...

Viv Kelvin

Broker Associate/Partner

I moved from Wales, UK to the San Francisco Peninsula in 2001 with my husband and our two young children. After renting in Redwood City for a few years, we bought our current home in San Carlos. It took us a while to get familiar with our new surroundings, and we were in for a bit of a culture shock. I’ve always had an interest in home building and construction. My father did plasterwork when I was growing up, and I helped him on construction sites during the school vacations. After settling in the Bay Area, I studied interior design at Canada College in Redwood City and opened my own interior design staging business. I earned my real estate license in 2012...

I joined the Vabrato Team, because our targeted commitment and expertise is the best in the business.

Colin Carberry


I’m a local boy with real estate running through my blood! I was born and raised in San Mateo County, where my family has owned and operated a Burlingame law firm for forty years. The firm specializes in real estate and eminent domain, allowing me to learn about the real estate field early on. My passion for real estate kicked into high gear in high school. While attending Burlingame High School, I had the opportunity to work in construction. Watching homes develop from the ground up gave me a unique perspective and appreciation for housing. I am excited to be graduating in fall 2021 with a B.S. degree in Business for Real Estate Management from Menlo Co...

Mariel Malabanan

Director of Operations

I was born and raised in the Philippines. As a kid, I’ve always loved to draw. I have always been fascinated by art and got really interested in drafting and designing, which motivated me to pursue a B.S Interior Design at the University of Santo Tomas. In my fourth year of college, I took a break to earn and save money for my college expenses. As a Jr. Interior Design Assistant at a small interior design firm for 7 months, I had participated in almost every aspect of projects, drafted awe-inspiring interiors, space planning, and site supervision. I was planning to go back and finish my studies, but that wasn’t an option for me at the time. So, I opted ...

Cedrick Velasco

Operations Manager

Proud to be born and raised in the Pearl of the Orient Seas. The Philippines, where it's sunny every day except for the monsoons. Grew up with the loving care of a single mother who taught me to always share what I can and be kind. Mom always tells me that I can always get a fresh start every day and be a better person than I was yesterday, I grew up with these words. Ever since I've always adored the idea of being able to share what I can and what I know with the world, there is something about it that makes me wonder how can an act take you somewhere far. I took the Bachelor of Secondary Education Major in English (BSEd – English) at the Lyceum Unive...
