Before getting into real estate, I was a senior corporate manager and a corporate officer with over 12 years of experience successfully managing database marketing, direct marketing functions, predictive modeling and analytics within banking, technology and real estate industries.

Since 2001, though, I have been successfully selling and managing a large real estate portfolio. Working with my husband, Scott Brown, we doubled our real estate production within the first year of operation together. We bring years of marketing and technology experience in selling real estate in the San Gabriel Valley with more than 95% of our business being repeat or referral business and successfully closing nearly 100% of our open escrows. We understand we assist our clients in their biggest investment and we treat it that way! In fact, we have adopted this philosophy as our motto and tagline as we strongly believe in it.

I also have over four years of management experience in planning, opening and running a successful health club in Pasadena, which fits one of my biggest interests outside of real estate: health and exercise. I've been featured in 14 workout videos over the years.

Education has always been important to me. I graduated top of my class at California State University Los Angeles with an MBA in International Business, and with a Bachelor of Science in business administration option Finance Magna Cum Laude. I am a member of the Golden Key National Honor Society as well as the Honorary Marketing Society, My Kappa Tau.

I hold a Broker’s real estate license and am currently working towards the CCIM designation which is specific to commercial investments to broaden my knowledge and to continue my quest towards learning.

I was born and grew up in Milan, Italy, and have traveled to France, England, Germany, Greece and Japan. I am fluent in English and Italian but have also studied Spanish, French and German.

I love animals, particularly dogs -- I've adopted a few from the Pasadena Humane Society. Currently, I am the proud “parent” of 2 adorable Jack Russell Terriers, twins, Dolce and Piccolo.

I am very spiritual in nature and live my life based on good morals and hoping to fulfill my purpose and be a positive influence.

Your home is one of the biggest commitments of your life: I treat it that way.  read less «

As our broker, Giusy employed numerous methods to give us the greatest coverage of potential buyers. She would keep us updated on the status via email/phone. Any questions to her is answered promptly. All paperwork transactions between Giusy and the escrow company went very smoothly.

They know their client and are always looking out for his/her best interests, are proactive, responsive and action oriented. I recommend them highly.
- Sandra E., Seller & Buyer
I believe I had the best team in LA. I tell all my friends about you.
- Craig, Seller
Thanks for everything…you are so informative and interesting to talk to.
- Ed & Kerry, Buyers
Just want to thank you again for all you've done. You have gone above and beyond the call of duty and we really appreciate it.
- Kathy & Laura, Buyers
Thanks so much guys for all your hard work in selling our home. Selling a home is such a daunting process and we are very happy that we had your expertise working for us. Finding that second offer that we ultimately accepted, saved us at least $8000 for which we are especially grateful. We will be sure to refer you guys to any of our friends that might need an agent!
- Harry and Cathy
The two of you were the ones providing me with the most immediate, real support in approaching and realizing my dream. Not one day passes without my taking delight in you two.
