Ever since leaving Northern California for the University of San Diego to study business, I've loved Southern California. Upon graduation, I moved to Los Angeles and I absolutely love everything about it, especially the Westside. It's definitely "home."
After a successful career in pharmaceutical sales, I "retired" for a few years to enjoy my children's early years. And then when both children enrolled in school in Santa Monica (where I'm still an active volunteer), I was excited to start a new career that focused on my strengths. Growing up in a household with a father who worked in both sales and in several construction trades, going into real estate sales was an ideal fit.
My husband, Tom, and I bought our first home in Pacific Palisades in 2001. He grew up in the Palisades so it was a natural progression to move back. Now, we take advantage of everything the Palisades has to offer, whether it's shuttling our children back and forth to the Palisades Park for basketball, baseball and tennis lessons, picking up fresh produce at the farmers market or the taking the dog on walks along the beach.
I have successfully represented friends, relatives, and referrals with their home sales, purchases, and leases. Working with both sellers and buyers has gained me the reputation for being both aggressive and reliable. I love what I do and want to share my passion with you.
