What makes you stand out among so many Realtors in the area?
“I bring it! My background has made me a great dealmaker and an at-ease, effective negotiator who is proficient in drafting and interpreting contracts. I avoid problems because I foresee them. On the marketing side, I love design and exploit the latest technologies and platforms to implement beautiful, robust marketing plans with maximum local and international exposure for each of my properties. I have great relationships with my colleagues and can use those relationships to achieve my clients’ objectives. But what really makes me stand out is my motivation. I am a service-oriented agent known for breaking records, and I plan to ‘show my clients the money’ in 2020.”
What are some of the steps you take to earn your clients’ trust?
“By doing a stellar job and never giving my clients a single reason not to trust me. With my legal background, the fiduciary duty that I owe clients is part of my DNA. My open and direct communication allows my clients to be informed decision-makers throughout the process, which sometimes means walking away from a purchase or sale with my blessings.”
What have been the biggest changes you’ve seen in the Valley market over the years?
“We are experiencing a real estate renaissance in the Valley. Affluence and celebrity are flocking here—not because they can’t afford the city but because they know it’s a great place to live. Our office is at the helm of double-digit million-dollar closings in the Valley, the highest of which was a $20 million home in Encino. It’s truly exciting to be a part of putting the Valley in its rightful place on the map!”
