Why are you a distinctive Laguna Beach agent?
Growing up in Laguna, I have a familiarity with town and live the lifestyle. I learned real estate from the best, my mother Pamela. I have a depth of understanding of our neighborhoods, their unique attributes and property values, which helps our sellers when pricing and our buyers when offering.

What do your clients tell you about the experience working together?
1. We went above and beyond what was expected of us.
2. We care about the outcome and don’t ever put our needs ahead of the client.
3. We knew the market the best and negotiated well.

What is your favorite part about Laguna Beach?
The sense of community is something I have always appreciated. As President of the LBHS Alumni Association, El Morro elementary sponsor and room Mom, it’s so much fun to spend time for and with the community.

What is the best part about your job?
Buying or selling a home is a huge life event. I enjoy sharing my guidance and expertise with a genuine interest in everyone’s satisfaction through such a time of transition.

Where is the market headed?
Demand has cooled but not enough to stop Buyers from living or investing here. We will see longer market times. Sellers need to be flexible on price to get their homes sold. Some neighborhoods will see drops in values and others will flatten. It’s important now than ever to work with a local agent who can help navigate this changing market.
