I came to real estate after running my own successful photography business. The experience of producing and directing many photoshoots blends seamlessly with all the varied aspects involved in any real estate transaction. A memorable photo and a successful closing both involve literally hundreds of decisions being made, a team of professionals working together and, occasionally, the stars in the sky being pulled into alignment in an effort to realize the desired outcome!
What do I like most about real estate? First would be the people. I like my clients! I enjoy the journey and working together to achieve a mutual goal. Second would have to be the deal. I love winning for my clients! I also enjoy the different nuances each transaction bring. I like the contract, the problem solving and the piecing together a feeling of a win-win that, ideally, leaves all parties walking away with a feeling that their most important needs have been met. Lastly, would have to be the diverse architecture we are so lucky to enjoy in Los Angeles. It truly is a special place with something for everyone.
I'm proud to be partnered with one of the most prominent real estate companies in Los Angeles and all of California; Compass. This well-respected firm prides itself on the most professional and ethical real estate practices in the business. This resonates with my personal set of morals and values. I also appreciate the brain trust associated with this group and the constant striving to grow and be better.
After nearly 15 years and well over 300 closed transactions later it's been through caring, excellent negotiation skills, solid judgment and sound advice that I have built a business based primarily on referrals. I'm proud that clients, friends and other agents continue to recommend my real estate services. My goal, when representing both buyers and sellers, is to listen, strategize, and execute a winning plan!
I was born in Halifax Nova Scotia, Canada. I moved with my family to San Francisco and finally to Hollywood where I currently reside. I enjoy photography, music, theater, the outdoors, reading, travel, great wine, good conversation and my dog; Georgie Poocher La Rou. So, if you want to go for a hike with our dogs, talk real estate and then enjoy a fine meal to celebrate your closing, call me!
