Specialist: Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park & “The Eastside” 

    If you are looking to buy or sell a home on “The Eastside”, you will find the opportunities as unique as the people who live here.  I suggest you choose a real estate agent who has a dedicated perspective to this marketplace.  As a Los Angeles native, I have lived in and been an active member in this community for over twenty years.  I am committed to the growth and promotion of my neighborhood, while preserving the distinctive character and spirit that make this the most unique place to live in Los Angeles.

     “The Eastside” is a treasure trove of architectural styles with Silver Lake being the “cradle” of modern residential architecture.  Many of the giants of modern architecture raised their families in our hillside neighborhoods.  I am passionate about how architecture instinctual connects with all our souls.  You could live anywhere, but you wisely chose “The Eastside”.  Let's combine your search with my passion, to maximize your investment.  I will help you find not only a home that meets your practical needs, but also projects your own unique aesthetic taste.

    Home ownership is your biggest investment.  Do not let the process frighten you.  Buying or selling a home with me, you can expect me to be your educator.  I was a college professor in theater design for many years.  Walking with you, I will explain every step of the process, from searching for your perfect home, to closing a complicated escrow.  I have also supervised wardrobe for multimillion-dollar movies and television shows.  The skills and talents that I developed in my previous careers, have served me in dealing with my clients and fellow realtors.  I like to attentively listen first, then gather all the pertinent information and finally act decisively.  You can expect me to be detail oriented, a stickler for deadlines, and a direct and no nonsense negotiator

     You deserve congratulations for your choosing to be a homeowner in my neighborhood.  No other area in Los Angeles provides the unique opportunities and rewards that can be garnered here. Let my talents shepherd you through the door of a positive and simple home sale or purchase.  As your agent I look forward to bringing my unique skills and special style to your home buying or selling experience.  I look forward to seeing you around the “Hood” as my neighbor.

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
