About Me

I grew up in a small town in Arkansas and moved to Los Angeles in 1991 to attend UCLA, majoring in interior design. I worked in the Entertainment Industry for several years as a set decorator and have a great appreciation for interior and architectural design. Before becoming a real estate agent, I also worked in IT helping medium to large size companies with custom business automation solutions.

My small town upbringing carries over in my approach to customer service. I treat all my clients with honesty and integrity, and I am dedicated to guiding my clients through today’s complex real estate market. I hope I can help everyone fulfill the American dream of home ownership.

 

When I am not working, I am spending time with my family. My husband, Vince, and I have two sons, Daniel and Matthew, that keep us very busy on the baseball field and at wrestling matches. Our family enjoys traveling whenever we can and look forward to our yearly camping trips to the Mammoth Lakes area. I also enjoy landscape photography, hiking and walks with my “girls” (dogs), Lua Bella and Gracie Mae.

Having lived and worked in the South Bay since 2000, I understand what makes our community and the people who call it home so special. From the summer concerts in the park and 4th of July fireworks shows to the local retail stores and coffee shops in the Riviera Village, the South Bay is a special place that I am proud to call home.

Photographer

John Moery

Photography is John's nerdy art. He is an engineer by training so his brain loves to figure out how everything works. Photography is a natural complement to engineering as it requires technical mastery and expensive toys. Taking a picture is just the first step to producing my image. He loves spending time in front of the computer tweaking each photo to make it come to life.
