I am a resale, probate, trust and estate specialist. I never perform dual agency. I either represent the seller or the buyer, but never both in the same transaction as it is a conflict of interest in my opinion. And no one else in my office will represent the other side either, that is my promise to you. I have a proven track record of success and I’d like to help you when you decide to sell or buy any real estate. Please call, text or email me for a complimentary and confidential consultation regarding my sales and/or valuation services. I am a 3rd generation real estate broker and state certified real estate appraiser. I understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s one of the most important life-changing experiences you will ever have. That’s why my goal is to provide outstanding, exceptional, personalized service to you and for all of my clients. I take great pride in the relationships that I have built over the years and I will work tirelessly and relentlessly on my client’s behalf to help them achieve their real estate goals.
My clients are my #1 priority. I pride myself on personalized customer service. I grew up and went to school locally, so I feel that I know the San Gabriel Valley, Orange and L.A. County areas as well as, or better than just about any other area REALTOR®.
