My interests are boundless: cooking, wine collecting, fine art, travel, theater, dance, yoga, organic gardening, architecture, antiques, entertaining, golf, reading, and philanthropy. My passion for luxury and the finer things in life spurs me to track down the best of the best. These pursuits have not only given me enormous pleasure, but they have also exposed me to extraordinary resources that I have been able to share with my wonderful clients. The highest expression of these interests is expressed through entertaining: My home and gardens are my stages! Is it any surprise that real estate is my profession?
As a sixth-generation New Yorker, I thought the sun rose and set on the Island of Manhattan. As a Columbia University graduate, Broadway dancer, singer, actress, Town & Country executive, I never imagined myself moving west until I had the opportunity to experience the magic of LA; first living in Dallas and then ultimately calling Los Angeles home. The lifestyles of New York and Los Angeles could not be more different, but I feel so fortunate to speak both cultural languages. As the Head of Promotions at Town & Country magazine, I oversaw "The White Paper" which revealed the spending habits of the super-wealthy. No matter the idiosyncrasies or geography, the wealthy have always had a love affair with real estate.
Representing a client on a real estate transaction is a very intimate process. I learn so much about my clients and view representing and advocating for them as a privilege. My clients can count on me having their back, and quickly learn that nuanced negotiating, strategizing, creative solutions and ambassadorships are among my top talents.
Sometimes buying or selling a house can feel like an unnatural act! With the emotional rollercoaster associated with negotiations, the mounds of paperwork, disclosures, financing, decorating, moving, etc. keeping one's equilibrium can be a challenge. That's where my Broadway Dance training is invaluable. I know what it takes emotionally to stand on the line. I know how to break down the real estate process one step at a time and respect the emotional component associated with buying or selling a home. A home is so much more than a house; it's a place where memories are made. First, you make your home, and then your home makes you. With all of the moving parts in a real estate transaction, I take the time to educate my clients and make sure they feel comfortable and in control every step of the way. With focused preparation, disciplined follow-through, and TLC, my clients can rest assured that I will compassionately get them to the finish line.
Taking the time to learn what is important to my clients allows me to use the lens of their desires to optimize their experience. Whether watching my clients take center stage in their new home or giving them the opportunity to sell their home and realize another dream, inspires me to provide unparalleled service.
Having established Ballroom Madness, a charity that taught underserved children ballroom dance, I have become acutely mindful of the tremendous value of partnership skills. Shall we dance?
