With a professional background in law, marketing and journalism, I am using the lessons I have learned as a 30 year plus real estate investor to serve others – as a Realtor/Associate with Idyllwild Realty, North Circle Office. I have bought, remodeled, and sold 13 homes, enjoying the process of improving properties and maximizing their utility and emotional appeal. I started in the Hermosa and Manhattan Beach areas in 1985 with three homes, then one in Venice Beach, one in Laurel Canyon, three in the Coachella Valley, two in the Central Coast (Cambria and Atascadero), new construction in Old Town Pasadena and two homes in Idyllwild (one in Fern Valley and one in Cedar Glen.) I learned the critical lessons of how to negotiate the purchase and sale of real estate by spending my own money on my real property investments. My objective now is to use my training and the judgment and skills I’ve developed over the years for others – to work diligently, with integrity, honesty and empathy to create the best results for those I serve. I have a Juris Doctor degree from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles and a bachelor’s degree from Cal State Los Angeles and Northwestern University in Chicago. I had a career in immigration and international law with a law firm in Brentwood and a practice with many months overseas each year.
