My career in real estate began in Chicago, my hometown, where I specialized in both residential and commercial property. My first exposure to real estate was through my father, a real estate attorney. I was a regular companion to him when he was scoping out investment properties for his clients. Some girls were taken shopping for toys I was taken shopping for real estate. Looking back I realize it wasn't only quality time with my father that I enjoyed and still cherish but it was an education that I could not have received anywhere else and I'm thankful for it today. After living in NYC and Europe and spending several years working in real estate in Chicago, I took a break from the industry and followed my passion for art and design to build a business in the luxury wedding industry—a designer bridal company—where I learned the importance of attention to detail and honed the skills for impeccable customer service. After a decade owning and running a business, I decided to move to Los Angeles and combine my career passions—high design, uncompromising customer service, and real estate—and delve back into the world as a realtor. With real estate, I don't just find or sell homes, I really get to know you, my client—what your desires are, what will make you happy—and then it's my job to make that happen. I find it very rewarding to be able to help through one of the biggest and most important transactions of your life: buying or selling a home.
