My values - Integrity, honesty & transparency
I believe the phone should never go unanswered and as your trusted real estate professional, I take great pride in the fact that my clients can always reach me, no matter what day or time. My commitment to white glove, concierge service comes from a lifetime of service to the public, both professionally and personally.
With nearly a decade in the real estate industry, I have extensive knowledge of the Los Angeles market and the unique and diverse neighborhoods that make up this great city. I am vigilant in keeping up with the rapidly changing market, from home prices, to lending products, to legislative action, analyzing how these factors may affect the goals of both buyers and sellers.
My career in real estate began with a job apprenticing with a top real estate appraiser. This position provided me with the opportunity to really grasp the needs of the diverse communities unique to L.A., so no matter what your requirements or location, I can provide information you can trust.
What makes me unique is the level of service I provide to my clients and how I deliver it. My extensive travels and experiences, immersing myself in different cultures, has given me a global perspective about what’s important to different people and how to best service their needs. That service continues far after the sale of a home. It is my goal to be your realtor for life, a trusted advisor and a go-to for information, advice or anything related to the real estate market.

There are wide array of benefits for buying real property. From social to economic, and even political, benefits of owning real property can't be easily counted. Real property offers an anchorage to family geographic zoning. Owners enjoy the benefits of forming closer connections with their community, through local businesses, schools, worship places and neighbors.
As always, economic benefit is a good starting point. Did you know that by paying $900/month rent you are throwing away $54,000? Yes, rent is a waste of money. Rent can't be even claimed in tax returns. In contrast, monthly payments towards mortgage payment plan will expand homeowners' wealth as equity is created. Moreover, buying a real property increases credit rating through regular payment history and location security. Even more, real property buyers can claim interest in their yearly tax returns (consult a tax expert for more details).
On the political level, homeowners exercise more influence on political decision makers. Because most county and state profits are based on real property taxes, politicians answer demands of property owners before renters (who are usually relocating). For example, when the financial crisis struck the U.S. markets in middle of 2007, the federal government quickly enacted laws to protect property owners. The same issue played a crucial role in 2008 Presidential elections.
In addition to economic and political benefits, real property buyers enjoy better social standings. Because property owners are more constraint to move, they form social networks with their local community. Neighbors invite each other for birthdays and other events. Housewives form local groups to help raise the children of the community. Even in safety, most communities utilize local neighborhood watches to keep crime level at a low level.
Finally, by buying a real property, individuals achieve the American Dream. Thanks to the U.S. government system, ownership rights are at the foundational core of the United States. A sense of accomplishment and satisfaction beholds property owners as they are free to express themselves within their own castles. Buying real property is as simple as desires of potential buyers.This information is an estimate and for research purposes only.
