I am a licensed attorney, former psychology professor, and I have extensive experience in real estate project management and real estate development. I rely heavily on my background, education and experience to communicate effectively with my clients; I am committed to negotiating favorable terms, and helping my clients achieve their real estate goals.

Committed to managing each step of the transaction to ensure any issues that could waylay the deal are addressed, I specialize in contract negotiations as well as getting my clients the best possible deal.

Helping clients achieve their real estate goals, be that buying their first home, selling an estate property, or creating wealth by building or expanding their real estate portfolio – my intentions remain purely objective.

My vast experience enables me to handle a wide array of transactions from single family homes to multi-family commercial buildings.

Specializing in probate and trust estate sales, I skillfully coordinate with personal representatives or trustees to help them manage the emotional and the practical part of selling the estate of a loved one. This is where my background and experience in psychology becomes paramount. My unique set of combined experiences contributes to being an outstanding resource.

I have navigated this process many times as an attorney, a beneficiary, and as a Realtor. Working well with attorneys and estate representatives to ensure that each sale proceeds in accordance with the probate code and court requirements. I am uniquely equipped to navigate both the legal and the real estate requirements. Capitalizing on this unique experience, the majority of my real estate transactions involve the sale of property for trust or probate estate.

I have aligned myself with Pacific Playa Realty, a boutique firm in Westchester, CA which prides itself on educating and training keeping me informed and at the top of my game with regard to market activities as well as sharpening my skills to continue to provide excellent service for my clients.

Although I specialize in probate real estate transactions, I am equally experienced in everyday real estate needs. Whether my clients are first time homebuyers, downsizing, upgrading to a larger property, in need of relocation assistance, or interested in expanding their real estate portfolio by way of a second home or investment property – I have the unique experience and background to guide my clients to reach their real estate goals through knowledge and compassion.

I am an only child. I grew up in a suburb of Los Angeles where I still reside and care for my young son and my mom. I enjoy volunteering at my son’s school, collaborating with fellow mother members of my Jack and Jill chapter, participating in The Literary Diva’s Book Club, and spending quality time with my friends and family.

First time home buyer? Need to downsize? Want to upgrade your property? Looking to relocate? Desire to sell an estate property? Interested in buying or selling an investment property?
