I am a realtor specializing in the San Gabriel Valley and working under the Podley Properties umbrella which is arguably the most reputable broker in this area. Podley, established well over 20 years ago, specializes in Pasadena, Altadena, Sierra Madre, Monrovia, and more. It also offers advertising, design and photography, through the in-house studio, which sets it apart from the majority of its competitors.
I have also had the privilege of living in the Pasadena and Altadena area for over 30 years and raising my daughter here as well.
Because the demographic of this community is changing so rapidly, it is up to me, as a professional, to know how it impacts your home. So many families and singles are moving into this area due to its proximity to Silverlake, Los Feliz, Burbank and more. Fortunately, the community offers “Old Town” Pasadena for strolling, shopping and dining, the Norton Simon Museum, one of the finest private art collections worldwide, the Huntington Gardens, now priding itself on a new educational center and the exquisite Chinese Gardens, the Pasadena Playhouse, renowned for its history and its truly fine productions, the Independent Laemmle Theatres, offering live performances on screen as well as films difficult to see, even in Los Angeles, and if you are up for the blockbusters, we offer the the Arclight theaters. Most importantly, the homes are less expensive than those in Los Angeles which brings buyers out in droves, and sellers can get a boost from this new demographic moving into the area.
My background working as a sales representative in the fashion industry brought me the business and negotiation abilities so needed in Real Estate. Everything is a negotiation, and an agent needs that skill in order to put together the best offer or acceptance of one. If you are listing your house, you are selling a product, and if I do not know the product and its attributes as well as its weaknesses, I cannot perform in the utmost capacity. If I am helping you procure a property, the same holds true.
