About

What’s old is new again!
I became a licensed real estate agent in 1976 and I have experience handling all types of vintage, classic architecture, Green and residential home sales in every kind of market. Saving money is not a new idea, but doing it while preserving the environment is always on trend. 
Who you know matters:
I’m recognized as the top sales agent in Pomona, CA. I specialize in luxury, upscale and vintage real estate. Lincoln Park, Pomona Real Estate is a particular passion. As an area resident and volunteer for the Lincoln Park Historic District, Pomona Beautification & Heritage Committees, I have great contacts.
Why Experience Counts:
Buying or selling a home is exciting – no matter what age it is! But it can also be overwhelming with lots of information to absorb and decisions to be made. I have the experience and knowledge to help you make the right decision. I am fully versed in today’s technology and social media.
What I’ll do for you:
I will negotiate the best price on your behalf, ensure escrow closes in a timely manner, and make the transaction as stress-free as possible. At First Team Real Estate, Christie’s I sell homes for 4.1% more and 33% faster than the competition. Source: RPR.
My commitment to you:
I promise to keep you informed, set proper expectations, educate, answer all your questions, and support you through the closing and beyond.
