I grew up in Los Angeles,
graduated from UCLA with a B.A. in European history and taught
Kindergarten/First Grade at an inner city school. My mission was to provide the
kids with a positive first school experience and to foster the reading skills
essential for a successful education.
Within a few years I
noticed that the landscape of the City was changing and I recognized there were
opportunities for wise investing. Marshalling my creative impulses and organizational
capabilities I fixed up and refurbished older properties and found good tenants
to lease them.
These investments gave me
the means to realize long held dreams…to travel and live abroad. It was great,
so many fond memories.
Upon returning to LA, I
decided to utilize my business experience, passion for real estate and natural
abilities as a facilitator to become a luxury real estate specialist in service
to others. I am fortunate to have a base of loyal repeat clients and other
professionals who refer their friends and family to me, knowing that I am
dedicated to their best interests.
I became a Certified
International Property Specialist, (CIPS) because of my love of traveling and
affinity for other countries and cultures. It is enlightening to attend global
conferences. They are informative about local markets and changing trends.
Meeting agents from all over the world, not only extends my collaborative
network, but at the social events we get to know one another on a more personal
I spend my downtime with
my cherished children, grandchildren, family and friends. I still have the
travel bug, like to play tennis, see films and live theatre, attend concerts
and educational seminars, discover new eateries and curl up with a good book.
Grateful for my many blessings I pay it forward
through active community involvement: speaker on professional panels, past Vice
Chair of the Global Committee for BH/GLAAR, founding member of Women’s Council
of Realtors, Metro LA/Beverly Hills, Executive Committee member of the Beverly
Hills Chapter of Bruin Professionals, and member of the Women’s Business and
BusinessLaw Entertainment Councils of
the Century City Chamber of Commerce.
In addition I am involved with non-profits that embrace diversity,
underserved populations and education: our Veterans through VAREPLA, our
Seniors though the SRES® Council, LA’s Foster Children through Working Dreams,
Worldwide Children who have suffered from the results of war, poverty and
environmental contamination through Kids Earth Fund, and Enrichment programs
through Friends of Westwood Library.
With artful diplomacy and
maintaining a respectful and calm demeanor I will be your strongest advocate in
finding solutions should problems arise. I believe successful transactions can
be a win-win for all.
