With a wide variety of life experiences to draw from, I have the skills that are necessary for providing superior client service. Due to my father’s career as a Journalist, my family lived in five different states before I was 14. Flexibility, adaptability and packing household goods were big priorities when I was growing up. I learned early on how to make friends as well as develop a strong sense of adventure. I also learned that roots may not be permanent and that one has to make the best of each situation. My exposure to travel has broadened my understanding of human behavior and has helped me develop a sensitivity to the emotional challenges that come with buying or selling a home.

After being educated in Denver and Seattle, I settled down in the Pasadena area in 1985. For over two decades, I have consistently been considered a top Realtor – representing buyers and sellers of single-family and condominiums throughout Los Angeles and beyond.

When not representing my clients, I enjoy photography, honing my skills on my drum kit and motorcycle adventures.

My affiliation with deasy penner podley stems from my belief in the company’s team philosophy – which extends into the communities it serves.
