Born and raised in Los Angeles, I always found joy in serving and helping others achieve their goals. This is what lead me to the Real Estate & Mortgage Banking industry, knowing that I’m helping people with the American dream of home ownership. Whether that was in the mortgage banking industry getting mortgage loans approved and closed on time with great success and earning many prestigious awards including Presidents Circle and Top Account Executive in Volume & Units or in Real Estate helping buyers find their dream home and guiding sellers on achieving the best and highest price possible to sell. During the GREAT RECESSION, when millions faced foreclosure, I helped many homeowners cross America avoid foreclosure. I also provided solutions to assist homeowners to be able to quickly enter the home market again. My success even caught the attention of Bloomberg News where I was interviewed about short sales. When I’m not helping people in the real estate market, you’ll find me giving back to my community, especially to those less fortunate by volunteering in food drives and meal prepping with L.A. Kitchen. Most importantly, I love spending time with my little boy. All this is possible by focusing on giving people the best service with attention to detail, by being a strong negotiator and advocate for my clients you can be assured your success is my joy.
