Creating Long Term Successful Relationships
One Deal at a Time
Trust. Commitment. Results.
A passionate and driven force in the real estate industry, I have achieved success by a relentless persistence and an unwavering positive attitude.
I joined Sotheby’s International Realty® after nearly a decade and two hundred completed transactions successfully representing retail property owners and shopping centers throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
The breakneck speed and sheer volume of those deals helped me develop the ability to get an enormous amount done with calm, integrity and efficiency, which translated seamlessly when I transitioned into the residential market.
In my first year and a half at Sotheby’s International Realty®, I closed, referred and leased $13,730,000 in transactions, including setting a new price record in Pacific Palisades.
A native Philadelphian and honors graduate of Carnegie Mellon University’s prestigious Drama Department, I began my professional career performing in the Tony Award® winning Broadway production of Anna Christie before the ink on my diploma was dry.
Multiple seasons with the celebrated Williamstown Theatre Festival afforded me the opportunity to continue honing my craft while working alongside some of Hollywood's most prominent actors, producers and directors.
Being front and center suited me well, but my real passions lie behind the scenes - bringing people and deals together.
After shooting several dozen high profile national commercials, I began the transition as a production company executive, first as Director of Development for a bi-coastal film and television studio, to Head of Feature Film Development for a highly respected New York based Literary Agency.
Somewhere in there I managed to produce an award winning short film about the aftermath of 9/11 and the resiliency of the American people shot entirely on location in New York City (Official Entry Academy Awards®).
My business journey continued at The Walt Disney Company, where I eventually joined their Corporate Affairs Department (a division of only 5 people within a company of over 166,000 employees), working directly with their Board of Directors, as well as their 700+ subsidiaries.
While at Disney I met one of Los Angeles' most prolific commercial real estate brokers, and from that chance networking meeting, a new avenue of opportunity presented itself - and I've never looked back.
A powerful problem solver with extensive knowledge of real estate markets, I am as much at ease working with first time homebuyers as I am with sophisticated and demanding owners of multi-million dollar properties. My innovative sales skills and creative marketing support my passion to bring people and deals together.
