I love what I do and where I live, and feel fortunate to spend every day helping others experience life, invest and flourish here in the South Bay. My husband and I have lived in Hermosa Beach for over 20 years, and have a daughter that attends Hermosa Valley School. In addition to our family home, we’ve invested in income-producing properties (the best investments we’ve ever made!), so I’m a believer in investing for the future and offer a wide range of first-hand knowledge. One thing I’m not is a high-pressure salesperson.
My clients tell me they appreciate my advisory skills and that I’m a one-stop-shopping real estate resource. I understand the various ever-changing phases of life, family needs and how to live successfully here.
Originally from Arizona, childhood summer vacations to California sparked a lifelong love of the ocean and the beach, so I moved here shortly after graduating from the University of Arizona. I’ve established deep roots in the South Bay, living in Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, San Pedro and Marina del Rey over the years, and often joke that I’ve been doing this so long, that if given an address in Manhattan, Hermosa or Redondo, I can probably envision the homes on any given block!
Working by choice through high school and college, my early career days were dedicated to learning all aspects of real estate, working with various companies that specialized in land speculation, industrial warehouses, condo conversions and shopping centers. I’ve always been a self-starter and got my first job when I was 14 at a nearby interior design studio, doing odd jobs and accounting (yes, even at 14 I had a knack for numbers!).
Although the world of real estate is fast-paced and I often work like a machine in order to provide top-shelf service to my clients, I have an assistant that takes care of behind-the-scenes details, allowing me to maximize time with clients, yet achieve some balance and enjoy time with family, friends and my favorite activities of volleyball and paddle surfing. There’s nothing like the post-ocean euphoria after a fun session in the waves, often sighting dolphins and sea lions, to recharge my zest for life.
