About Elaine

If you are very, very lucky, once in your lifetime you'll find yourself in a place that you love as much as I love Topanga. It's a place that I love to the very depths of my soul. Once people discover Topanga, they want to stay. It is for this reason that I specialize as a Topanga REALTOR. It is for this reason that I am so passionate about what I do.

Born and raised in the Los Angeles area, I've been a Topanga resident since 1988. My husband and his family have been here for generations. In fact, my own children are the fourth generation of our family to live and thrive in our home. I love to support our Topanga Community as a volunteer, from serving on the preschool and Chamber of Commerce boards, to getting covered in paint while helping build our Community House playground.

A graduate of Loyola Marymount University, I bring my copywriting and marketing background from my work in media production to listing real estate. I pursue every possible opportunity in order to continually educate myself on the changing face of the real estate business. I am fascinated by new technologies and marketing methods, and discuss them with like-minded colleagues all across the nation.

At the same time, I strongly believe in the power of honest discussion. As I understand that these sales and purchases are huge life-decisions, I like to educate my clients about what to expect with each step of the process. I thrive on the excitement of my clients and the joy that comes from helping them find not just an address, but a home in which they really live, breathe, and grow.

Each home in Topanga has its own vibrant history and its own special character. As someone who knows Topanga inside and out, I can help you negotiate its unique and tricky obstacles in a way that other REALTORS can't. I work hard to make sure the course toward your home purchase or sale, whether in Malibu, the West Valley or Topanga, is as smooth and clear as possible. Sellers, I will help you to launch your new adventures. Buyers, together we'll find your own slice of heaven, and, in no time at all, you'll fall in love with your new place, just like I did with mine.
