How did you get your start in real estate?

When I first became interested in real estate, the market was on an upswing and I began purchasing income and rental properties as investments.  I quickly realized that I had a passion for the real estate business and I have been doing it ever since.

What sale or career milestone are you most proud of?

My career milestone is the listing and sale of the Spelling Manor in Holmby Hills, which is the highest brokered residential sale to-date in Los Angeles history and one of the highest in the country.

What is your dream home location?

I would love a beach house on the coast of Malibu.  The sandy beaches and ocean views are incredibly peaceful, and yet it’s just a quick drive to the hustle and bustle of the city.

What kind of car do you drive?

Right now I am driving a Porsche Panamera which I love!

iPhone, Android or BlackBerry?

I am currently transitioning from BlackBerry to iPhone.  So much of my business is done on-the-go and both phones have great advantages, so right now I am still using both.

What site/app do you check first when you wake up?

The first thing I check when I wake up is my e-mails.  I receive hundreds and hundreds of emails daily so staying on top of them and checking in with clients is the first priority! It is so important to stay constantly connected and in communication.


What was the last book you read? 

I just finished Silver Linings Playbook.  I saw the movie and loved it and heard that the book was a great read as well.


Name your favorite guilty pleasure.

My favorite guilty pleasure is rocky road ice cream.  There is nothing better on a hot Southern California day!


What’s one thing someone would never guess just by looking at you? 

I am really a thrill seeker and am always looking for the next adventure.  I have been white water rafting, zip lining, I love skiing black diamond trails and I hope to try sky diving someday soon!
