I started my full-time real estate career in 1995.
And after more than 2 decades, I still love every day because I love helping people. It’s my opinion that a good real estate agent is more of an educator than a sales person. Once every aspect of a transaction is explained, discussed and understood, the client will decide whether or not the deal is right for them.
I love negotiating for my clients and have a deep understanding of real estate contracts, which always benefits my clients regardless of which side of the transaction we are on. I try to put myself inside the head of the people on the other side of the deal so I can anticipate what may come next. I was fortunate to work primarily by referral, so I have experience selling homes from Los Feliz to Malibu, as well as all of the San Fernando Valley and points beyond. This gives me a broad understanding of the entire Los Angeles real estate market, not merely a select neighborhood. It also helped me gain respect in a wide swath of the Brokerage community and those relationships continue to serve me.
Now, as a full time Manager, I get to use those experiences and relationships to guide a whole new generation of Agents. Helping others learn through example is gratifying because it saves them from having to learn from experience.
I love what I do and am grateful every day that I get to do it here.
