What would you like potential clients to know about you?
'I am loyal and honest and have been investing and selling real estate for many years, which makes me uniquely qualified to discuss the roller coaster that is the economy and the real estate markets. I am an advocate for my client in ways that new agents cannot be. I have developed relationships with other brokers as honest and reliable, which helps me negotiate for my clients.'

What does it take to be the best in the business?
'Many people think real estate is easy. This is not the case. It takes determination and resilience to stay in this business through the good times and the bad times.''

How do you give back to your community?
'I am a member of Give Back Homes, which builds homes for those less fortunate.'

What do your clients love about living in the South Bay?
'Most of my clients love the family-friendly atmosphere and the ocean, of course. They love that it is close to LA but not IN LA! What can be better than having a home by the sea?'

Who is your typical client?
'I have all types of clients: investors, young couples, families moving up and empty-nesters.'

In what ways do you provide top-notch service to your clients?
'I answer my phone or call back as soon as I am able. I expect to be on-call most times of the day. I make sure that they are treated with respect and get the property that meets their needs.'

What's most rewarding about your work?
'I get to assist folks into a home of their own in the best cities in the world. There is no place that compares to the South Bay for quality of life.'

What keeps you interested in real estate?
'I stay because it is still fun.'

In which area of real estate do you specialize?
'I spent many years selling only investments. When I started I was the only woman in a man's game. Men resented it, but I was better than they were so they had to get used to it. Now it is more fun to do both residential as well as investments, and I am much more relaxed about the whole process.'

Do you have a personal motto or philosophy for doing business? ''Experience, Perseverance and Results.' I do not rest until I get the results my clients deserve.'
