Homes, and what makes them great, are something of a birthright for me. I was born to a luxury homebuilder father and an interior designer mother from Mexico and was raised in a bilingual Spanish/English household. My earliest memories are of construction sites and traveling around the country and the world with my mother to different design centers and artisans that are her sources. As a result I have developed a love and an eye for style and architecture, as well as quality. Growing up between Texas and Pacific Palisades gave me a familiarity with both areas, as well as a little bit of Southern charm.

My sophomore year at Texas Christian University, I decided to join the industry myself by getting my license and I started to work for a residential firm in Fort Worth, Texas. Within two years I struck out on my own by getting my brokerage license and started a small brokerage firm. At the time I noticed a need for more student housing in and around the University, so I met the demand by putting development concepts together as well as acquiring the land for these developments and managing lease properties. I met at the negotiating table with city officials, neighborhood associations, zoning commission and the city council. This experience lead me to a strong understanding of the economics of real estate valuation and what goes into the redevelopment of an area - and I survived the post 2008 recession era, all while studying at the University.

All of these factors of experience bring a value to my clients and I love growing my knowledge of markets and areas. The only thing, in my mind, that rivals these aspects in importance is integrity, which is the thing I value most in the world. I take every one of my clients and transactions very personally. I would be very grateful for the opportunity to work with you and your family for any of your needs on the Westside.

I thoroughly enjoy living in Los Angeles as I am an avid lover of the arts. I am a multi-instrumentalist and a classically trained actor with a particular love of the stage, and will take any opportunity to catch a concert or play. Also, I like to keep active in my spare time and I can be found practicing parkour and gymnastics and even coaching adults and kids in the sport I love, as well as playing paddle tennis and just hanging out on the beach.
