Of the many lessons taught to me by my mother, the one that continues to guide my professional career today is a simple one: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. 

Born in Los Angeles, and raised in Beverly Hills and the Westside, I have an intimate knowledge of the local landscape and enjoy showing clients the ins and outs of the area.   Whether it's the best place to have french toast for breakfast, meet for power lunches, or simply to see the beautiful sunsets, I can show you.

After graduating from USC, I got my professional start in the mailroom at CAA and William Morris where I learned the various aspects of the entertainment business. I then started my real estate career when I joined my father in New York City to start building our family business in commercial real estate. I learned how to operate and manage an office building on Park Avenue along with the intricacies of negotiating leases. After conquering the fast-paced New York real estate market, I moved to South Florida where I owned and managed 12 commercial office buildings. Over the course of twenty years, I negotiated leases that totaled over hundreds of thousands of square feet and negotiated the purchase and sale of office buildings upwards of over a few hundred million dollars.

After sixteen years on the east coast, it finally felt like it was time for me to return to my hometown of Los Angeles where I successfully translated my experience in commercial real estate into working with both buyers and sellers in the residential marketplace. 

My love of helping people achieve their personal goals doesn’t stop at real estate. Fitness and exercise continue to play a big role in my life. I am a certified Pilates instructor and love to lend my fitness expertise to anyone who is interested. I have found great moments of clarity while working out and I’ve learned a great deal of humility by helping people transform their lives through fitness. It’s a valuable perspective that I bring to every real estate client I work with. 

My mother’s advice to me as a kid continues to guide my success today: Do unto others as you would have them to unto you. While this sentiment is simple, it serves as the foundation on which I have built a business in transforming the lives of the people who put their faith in me. Let me show you my Los Angeles.
