I have been licensed to sell real estate since September 1995.
I started practicing real estate at a small boutique office in Studio City. By my second full year, I was a top agent with that company. Then in June of 1999, the precursor to Berkshire Hathaway Home Services California Properties expanded into the San Fernando Valley by opening a Studio City office. I was recruited to help open the new office. Seven years later, we had expanded to over 120 agents in Studio City alone, with 18 more offices in the L.A. Area. Despite this period of growth (and increased competition), I have consistently merited recognition at Berkshire Hathaway HS California Properties, including earning a place in the Top Ten agents, and earning the company's President's Circle award for outstanding production - among other awards and recognition.
As time went on, I was asked to be an assistant manager to help run our Studio City office. Two years later, I was made an Associate Manager of the Studio City office. In March 2011, I was made the manager of the West Hollywood Office in the Pacific Design Center, and in July 2013, I became the manager of the Santa Monica office, where I am now.
I am a native Angeleno, having been born in the San Fernando Valley - back when it was filled with Orange Groves, and we were all in the 213 area code.
I graduated college with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Marketing in 1992. I studied Biochemistry at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, but transferred to Cal State Northridge where I switched to Business. I put myself through college selling women's shoes for Bullock's. I was hired during my senior year of college (year 6 for me) by Robinson's-May Co. as an executive in the buying offices. After 3 years, I left the buying offices for the exciting life of Real Estate!
I have always lived in Los Angeles - Encino, West Hills, Northridge, Granada Hills, Santa Clarita, West Hollywood, Valley Village, Studio City, and Hollywood Hills.
I love to travel and explore the world. I have been to 52 countries and counting. I have been a competitive bowler - bowling a 300. I am also an avid card player, particularly Bridge. I love paddle tennis (not ping-pong, this is like a cross between squash and tennis). I work out and run religiously (about 4 miles 3x's a week) to counteract my second or third greatest love…eating! I have 2 adorable Dachshunds - Buster and Sport, and a wonderfully supportive husband.
