WHEN I'M HAVING FUN...SO ARE YOU!

Loving what you do enables other people to enjoy working with you. Listening to needs, figuring out what is important, watching a smile bloom when everything breaks right... that's what makes this job worth it for me.

REALTORS® are facilitators. First, and foremost we are here to help and inform. Secondarily we make the business side of a transaction smooth so each person feels supported. I am there for my clients!

Offered At $739,900

When we visited this nicely remodeled Sherman Oaks home that had gorgeous wood floors, plantation shutters, and custom lighting, we thought "this could be it". The living room overlooked a beautiful private yard with assorted fruit trees and flowers. The bedrooms were large, with good-sized closets, and the master with its own fireplace, en-suite bathroom, French doors, and walk-in closet sealed the deal. My client's savvy negotiation skills ensured a good price and soon it was hers.

As their realtor, I felt for David and Kate. We had many highs and lows during our search dealing with inspections and multiple offers. When we came across this completely updated traditional in coveted Colfax Meadows I felt a tingling sensation - the one I try to tamp down in order to measure my excitement. The elegant formal living and dining rooms were perfect for entertaining and French doors led outdoors from every room in the house! Between the designer kitchen, stunning new bathrooms, comfortable back porch, and multiple work spaces - it matched their wants and needs. Not too much later, it was their new home. Smiles all around!

I could not have been happier to start helping Arlene move forward with her desire to down-size once her kids became adults. She had re-imagined a mid-century Mellenthin into a craftsman-style home in the Hidden Woods neighborhood of Sherman Oaks. It was lovingly upgraded while maintaining many of its uniquely appealing characteristics. Just some of the highlights: an enlarged classic farmhouse-style kitchen that opened to a dining area perfect for entertaining, and a close-to-original living room with a stone fireplace, built-in shelving, and vaulted ceiling. The stunning 2nd floor master featured a luxurious en-suite bathroom, dressing room/nursery, walk-in closet, and sunlit study/office. Sliding glass doors led to the beautifully landscaped backyard with decks, cedar hot tub, and built-in BBQ. The perfect family found us and the rest was kismet. Next it was on to finalizing the purchase of her dream home.

Who would have thought Arlene would trade one beautifully maintained Mellenthin home for another? She happened upon this quiet, hidden pocket of Sherman Oaks with cul-de-sacs and called me to say, "I found it!" The home was updated, but still had its mid-century charm - hardwood floors, original high beam natural wood ceiling, two working fireplaces, plantation shutters, and a formal dining room. A wall of windows opened up to the fabulous backyard – inviting and private with fresh-air views of the tall pines on Chandler. It could not have been more perfect if I had built and placed it myself. It sold to Arlene as the highest bidder!

Talk about highs and lows, Camille faced them all with delightful humor and grace. After years of stops and starts based on life's curve balls she was committed to finding the right place for her heirlooms that had resided in PODS for longer than hoped. We were outbid, outnumbered, and comfortably eschewing the wrong houses, but when this beautifully remodeled, centrally located, traditional home came on the market we were both wowed. It was truly move-in ready with 2 fireplaces, hardwood and tiled floors, fully remodeled bathrooms & kitchen plus new electrical and copper plumbing. Her wish was to have a spacious backyard big enough for a garden and entertaining, detached two-car garage, and be minutes from freeways and public transportation. Thirty days later it was hers and I could not have been happier!

So off Jack and I went on a second purchasing adventure, this time a condo for Franki to call home. We found a perfect match, but it wasn't to be and while viewing another condo across the way we heard this charmer was soon to go on the market. A day later Jaci's offer was accepted and now she is renovating it utilizing Franki's design know-how. It will be a fabulous home for Milo and Kahlua - lots of space, light, and balconies offering indoor outdoor living. I am incredibly grateful when given the opportunity to help make someone's life a little better. I know this beautiful condo will do just that!

On an early November morning, my good friend Christina texted me, letting me know that there was a house she and her husband wanted to see. By the end of the day we had seen two and glimpsed the outside of the one that was to be. Soon, they toured it, and we wrote the offer the next day. It was promptly accepted, and the newlyweds were owners before Christmas! It is a beautiful ranch in the rolling hills with a pool, two fireplaces, and floor-to-ceiling sliders beckoning the outdoors in. I was beyond happy to help a couple I love dearly buy their first co-owned home.

I met Leslie through an acquaintance, and working with her turned into my first major delight of 2017! She had plans to re-locate to Northern California, and we teamed up to sell her charming house located in a convenient, leafy area of North Hollywood. The home's instantly apparent curb appeal reflected pride of ownership, from the bright and spacious living room to the updated kitchen and bath. Mid-century details, a covered patio and an abundance of natural light completed the package - we received several offers and ended up selling with one of the best prices in the area for the size of the home. Congrats to Leslie on moving forward!

Breathtaking San Francisco Bay views! This unique and charming bungalow built in 1926 boasts a spacious living room with lodge-sized fireplace and vaulted beamed ceilings. Truly a storybook cottage! It was the biggest honor to help my sister find a home for her week day life. I thought there would be no greater feeling than helping a friend…then I helped Sally. I can’t thank her enough for enabling me to be a part of the journey and I love this house!

My neighbor Angie contacted me earlier this year and asked if I helped find leased houses; she and Paul were looking to move later this year. Next thing I knew their lease was ending and they couldn’t wait to find a yard for their sweet dog Biscuit. We looked and looked – and nerves began to fry – but through all the stress, it was unbelievable how available they were to look at every option as soon as it came to market. I hope they feel the same, but I think their Hauser home is absolutely the best of the bunch. Biscuit’s happiness is my happiness!

Carrie visited my open house on Louise Ave. and called me the next day to say the house was a bit small for her, but she wanted to see a lot of houses quickly because she lost her home in the Sylmar fire. We were out on showings two days later and up until Christmas week every couple of days. After one false start we found a great house in Chatsworth on a big lot (happiness for her dog Poe) that made her so much more comfortable than all of the flips we shopped through. She closed in January and her strength has impacted me greatly. Carrie inspires me, she is my friend, and I am a better person because of her. Cheers to Carrie!

Laura completely remodeled this two-bedroom one-bathroom “doll house” with thoughts toward her and Eric's future. Once finished she realized the house size was going to be an issue for their five dogs and 25 turtles! She upgraded everything: central air-conditioning/heat, roof, wooden fence, LG stainless-steel appliances, cherry cabinets, quartz countertops, Walker Zanger tile, soaker tub, new carpet throughout, a gas log fireplace, etc. Meredith was looking for a home not too big and not too small -- but just right and within hailing distance from the grandkids. It was a match made in heaven and we were in escrow a week later. The beautiful backyard features old-growth trees that provide vital summer shade, a covered patio, bridge over a dry stream bed, and rear yard sitting area under a beautiful Japanese Elm. Working with Laura was a joy. I can't wait till we do it again!

The Phoenix market is red hot right now and houses in Phoenix proper sell quickly. I worked with my sister-in-law Jane Sanford, also a BHHS agent, and we were in escrow within two weeks on the market. The first to write an offer won out and it was a bit sad saying goodbye to this awesome investment property we held for five years. I’ll use this occasion to mention that owning investment property rarely goes wrong. Don’t overpay and be a good landlord. Thanks to Jane’s help we sold it for over asking and mom made out like a bandit!

We began our discussions in February when Nancy was interviewing for a job in El Segundo. A month later she was gainfully employed 3,000 miles from their home outside NYC and we began our search for the perfect beach house with enough space for three teenage boys. They were used to living in over 5,000 square feet and having a big yard. South Bay housing can pose a challenge to those needs. We looked in the Sand, the Trees, the Hill and Mira Costa - but when we saw this beautiful home with a stunning view on El Oeste they were smitten! They have a huge lot, the kids can walk to school and the beach, and the parents can ease into Left Coast living. YAY for the Sylver family and thank you Peggy Mansfield for the referral!

I met Dustin and Ashley while listing the land on Rayland Drive. Sometimes you can easily read a person’s honesty and character within a few interactions. That is how I felt with Dustin. They have plans ready and approved for a container home and they know the ropes at B&S incredibly well. Shortly after we listed the land we had a lot of calls, two offers were written, and they sold it for over asking 30 days later. We are still looking for the perfect view lot that will get them “Far from the Madding Crowd”. I can’t wait to include their purchase in my Body of Work.

Carrie asked me if I sell land and I thought for less than a second and answered yes I do! I partnered with an agent in my office who brought 20 plus years of experience to the transaction. It is hard to imagine what it would be like to lose everything, but if it ever happens to me I hope I handle it with half the grace and resilience of Carrie. She said goodbye to this picturesque plateau in the foothills of Kagel Canyon after 21 years of rural bliss an arm's length from the city hustle. Like a Phoenix she rose from the ashes and I am sure this property will follow her lead.

Jaci mentioned that her lease was ending in Q4 2018 and that she was thinking of buying a building. Though I had just recently become commercially certified I felt confident I could navigate the South Bay market. After the first discussion I noticed this building but it was already in escrow. Patrick asked me to check back in July to see how things were progressing. The call was fruitful for Cilajet but a bit painful for the buyer who was falling out of escrow. After a week of negotiations we opened escrow and closed 40 days later. Because Jaci is a dream to work with it went off without a hitch. She is working on renovations and will move her Torrance based business shortly after the first of the year. Congrats!!
