"I've been a Sales and Marketing professional for over 25 years, and a respected Realtor in the South Bay/Palos Verdes area since 1992. A former Vice President of Marketing for a multi-million dollar sales organization, I utilize my marketing skills and creative talents and abilities in every aspect of real estate sales.
I was raised in a traditional home where high moral standards, including honesty and integrity, were greatly cherished. I serve my clients by combining those same high standards in business.
I take a PROACTIVE approach to real estate, but never high pressured, consulting with home buyers and sellers to identify their unique requirements and goals. Proper real estate planning aong with utilizing the advice of financial and legal professionals is crucial to helping clients better manage their real estate assets.
Buying or selling a home is both an emotional and a business decision. My clients appreciate working with a real estate professional who will develop a strategy for helping them buy and sell real estate based on sound business principles. Homebuyers and sellers have the reliability of my 25 years in the corporate business world and 20+ years of real estate experience and knowledge working for them!
No transaction is too large or too small to get my fullest attention. I sell properties ranging from luxury estates to condominiums and investment properties in the South Bay/Palos Verdes area. My clients are diverse, from first time homebuyers, women in transition, corporate relocation, celebrities, and seniors moving into retirement communities.
I've earned the loyalty and respect of my homebuyers and sellers by striving to protect their best interests while keeping their confidentiality. As a trusted advisor, I never lose sight of the fact that straightforward honesty and accountability are what clients expect from me. It's this kind of relationship that not only meets, but also exceeds their expectations and leads to a long-term business association.
In today's challenging economy, helping clients make smart real estate decisions is key to protecting and preserving their wealth and investments."

EDUCATION has been vital to my consistent success in real estate. I continue to arm myself with knowledge by regularly attending a wide array of real estate courses, seminars, and workshops. My diverse education in the full spectrum of real estate helps me to provide my clients with the kind of knowledge that empowers them to make intelligent, sound business decisions. Less than 1% of Realtors have actually achieved the designations below, and I believe my education and expertise are a true benefit to those I serve.
As a GRADUATE OF THE REALTOR INSTITUTE, I made a commitment to providing a superior level of professional services to better serve and protect my Buyers and Sellers. The ''GRI'' designation is considered the foundation for all other advanced real estate designations, an achievement reached by only 5% of all California Realtors.
The INTERNATIONAL REAL ESTATE SPECIALIST certification allows me to market and sell national and international properties by utilizing a global networking system designed to assist my clients. I am one of approximately 7,000 real estate professionals, out of more than five million associates worldwide to earn this prestigious specialization.
The ACCREDITED BUYER''S REPRESENTATIVE designation is the benchmark of excellence in Buyer representation for Realtors who meet the specified educational and practical experience criteria. I''m pleased to have been awarded this coveted ''ABR'' designation.
As a graduate of THE INSTITUTE FOR LUXURY HOME MARKETING, I have the special marketing skills and competencies necessary to provide exceptional service and expertise in the fine homes and estates marketplace.
One of the services that sets me apart from most Realtors is my experience as an ACCREDITED STAGING PROFESSIONAL. The way you live in your home and the way we sell your house are two different things. I'll make thoughtful recommendations about how you can inexpensively enhance and update your house, in order to achieve the highest possible "staged" sales price. I work with a team of home improvement service providers to assist with your home repairs and upgrades.
I have distinguished myself in the field of luxury condominiums, townhomes, and planned developments sales by earning the prestigious CERTIFIED CONDOMINIUM SPECIALIST designation. This national designation is given to select real estate agents who have demonstrated the specialized education, market knowledge, competence and experience in successfully and effectively selling condominiums, townhomes, planned developments and common interest developments that are part of a homeowners association.
The QUALITY SERVICE CERTIFIED designation is earned and maintained by meeting or exceeding a standard of ongoing quality service delivery for each transaction, as measured by a quality service survey, input by my clients. The ''QSC'' ensures value for the Buyer or Seller by providing consistent, reliable, predictable and accountable service for every real estate transaction.
The GREEN DESIGNATION is designed to assist Realtors with knowledge of green homes and buildings and issues of sustainability in relation to real estate. "Living Green" is about making healthy choices that are also easy on your wallet. This designation was developed in response to growing consumer awareness of the benefits of resource-efficient homes and buildings.
As a CERTIFIED DISTRESSED PROPERTY EXPERT I have acquired specific understanding of the complex issues confronting distressed homeowners facing financial hardship in today's real estate market.
As a SENIORS REAL ESTATE SPECIALIST, I consult with seniors over 55 to make wise decisions about whether or not to sell the family home, downsize to a smaller home, condominium, or retirement community, buy/sell investment property, manage the capital gains and estate tax implications of owning real estate and other real estate-related issues. I express the same interests and concerns and can provide assistance to meet their unique circumstances and specialized needs with utmost integrity and respect.
After completing a course about the history, culture and civic aspects of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, The Palos Verdes Peninsula Association of Realtors awarded me the board certified PALOS VERDES SPECIALIST designation.
I work with Buyers and Sellers on the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula, which includes Rancho Palos Verdes, Palos Verdes Estates, Rolling Hills Estates, as well as the South Bay cities of Torrance, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Lomita, San Pedro, and Gardena.
