What do you do best?
I’m a problem-solver. Whether that means finding a client an investment property, selling a home, striking up a mutually beneficial brand partnership, or producing a flawless event, I like to fill gaps and connect opportunities. It comes naturally to me, so I always enjoy it.
What makes you the best?
I’m genuine. And I don’t necessarily mean that others may not be genuine. But I can be proud of everything I say and do when I’m connecting people and creating opportunities because I strive to always be authentic to my own intentions and the intentions of my clients.
What are your aspirations?
Personal: Owning and investing in properties nationwide and maybe internationally
Business: Building businesses so successful and widespread that they impact the world in some great way.
My biggest success always lies ahead of me!
Most Challenging Moment?
Making the decision to work for myself. But this has also been the most rewarding experience.
Go big or go home.
What an odd question! I appreciate everyone in my life for all sorts of different reasons! If I had to pick one -- my 7-pound shorkie, Bibi.
In NYC, anything in the West Village. I love trying out new places. On the west coast, I love Santa Barbara for relaxing and the most delicious Mexican food in the country. Internationally, I have fallen in love with Rome, Paris, and the most peaceful place on earth, the Chapung Sebali in Ubud, Bali.
Vinylux nail polish – it lasts chip-free for 2 full weeks! And you can take it off with regular nail polish remover, unlike gel. You’re welcome ladies. Coconut oil – for cooking, and for moisturizing - Double whammy! My TimePassages app – for astrological charts… Gotta time those successful deals!
I’ve always been passionate about real estate. Before I ever had a real estate license, I would help friends find their apartments just for fun. Now, this passion has just grown and expanded. And baby animals. I’m pretty obsessed with baby animals.
