Born and raised in Nebraska, my mid-west upbringing has been a great advantage to my business as people appreciate that I am hard working, honest, reliable and that I'm able to make them feel comfortable and at ease in uncomfortable or difficult situations.I have been a real estate broker since 2001. I chose real estate because I value people, the art of negotiations, and I am inspired by the union of form, function and nature realized through architecture. I take great pride in helping connect my clients with the home that is best suited for them, I feel I have made a difference in their lives and the lives of their family. I have been a top-producing real estate agent and received various awards for my performance over the years. I believe that every real estate transaction is unique just as each individual client's needs are. I thrive on working with people in challenging situations and helping them to achieve their best possible transaction price. By being proactive and asking the right questions, my objective is to identify what is most important to my clients in order to help them to fulfill their real estate dreams. I guide them through the process of buying or selling their home, paying close attention to their lifestyle, who they are and what their true needs are.There is so much that I love about Los Angeles - I appreciate the culture and the people. My favorite thing about LA is the diversity of the architecture and the differences of each neighborhood. I enjoy exploring the different communities with my clients and pointing out these cultural and architectural characteristics. I also love the fact that the ocean, mountains and desert are only a short drive away and that the geography of California lends itself to an active lifestyle.I live in Brentwood with my daughter. We love spending time on the beach or exploring the many museums and special events that LA offers; she is the biggest blessing in my life. We have many play dates with friends and clients who have children. I enjoy getting together with fellow mommas to talk about the real estate market, our children and the day-to-day crazy schedules we all have.
