Meet The Team
I’ve been a Los Angeles realtor for 10 years and was a loan officer for 2 years prior to that. I’m a Certified Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource (SFR). I currently live in Echo Park with my husband, Orlando (a motion graphics artist), and a three year old, Kennedy (a rambunctious toddler). In my free time I love visiting Echo Park Lake and other local parks with my family, and discovering fun spots for a meal or a drink in Echo Park, Silver Lake, Los Feliz, Atwater Village and the nearby neighborhoods. If you need any recommendations, I can definitely direct you in the right place! I absolutely love this part of town and I’m always available to answer your questions.
I’m the newest member of The LA Home Girl Team and an LA native, having been born and raised in Culver City. As a lifetime resident of this city, I can guide you to a beach in Malibu, the best restaurants in Beverly Hills or the hippest coffee shop in Highland Park. My job here at the LA Home Girl Team is lead leasing agent and buyer concierge. I love showing properties and assisting our clients in finding their perfect lease or purchase. One of the best parts of my job is helping our lease clients establish a long-term buying plan. I love helping our clients build wealth. The fact that I get to be there at the beginning of that journey makes my heart sing. When I’m not negotiating terms for our clients or showing homes around Los Angeles, I love to go to the beach, go hiking in the hills with friends, or go to a late night dinner with family. I can’t wait to help you on your journey of finding your new home!
I’m a California native living Highland Park. I spend my free time kickboxing, reading, and trying to pet stray cats. I make sure everything is operating as smoothly as possible here at the LA Home Girl so that your real estate transactions proceed with minimal bumps in the road. I manage everything from scheduling to handling day-to-day operations within our office. Kenya and Hailey will tell you that when you work with us, I’m the office ghost: You’ll get emails and calls from me, but you’ll never actually see me. If you have any questions or would like information on any of our listings, you can email or call me for information.
