What was your proudest moment?
Without question, the birth of my two daughters
What is your alma mater?
What is your next project?
At my level of operation with Sotheby’s International Realty, most projects are confidential in nature. However, my focus is always on our agents, providing them with the latest resources in technology and marketing tools in order for them to be their most successful.
Who is your hero?
My father. He was a developer in the San Fernando Valley and had the foresight to see the housing needs in Los Angeles at a time when growth was very much a new frontier. This was something I always greatly admired and have aspired to implement into my own career.
What do you like best about Los Angeles?
Los Angeles is a cultural trendsetter and truly an international city. The diversity of the people, communities, and opportunities are second to none.
