  • So today, I turn the big 5-0!!

TY @oursouthbay for my bday article about my story, book & work! Article in link bio!

I have prepped for this rite of passage as much as I prepared for empty nesting- I wanted to avoid a hot mess of a change. 
I LOVE change, but mindset and preparation are essential in some stages of our lives, don't you think? 

Turning 50 is special enough to give it deep thought and preparation!

And as much as I prepared for the big 50, 2022 has been one of the most challenging years in a LONG time; the last time was in 95.
This round, has been harder, deeper, and scarier, filled with mistakes that have become lessons and pain that has become fuel. 
2022 has offered me a trifecta;

+My family dynamic changed.
+I turn 50
+And I'm officially in menopause. 
= Good times!

A doozy of a year that has gained me a ton of clarity about who I am, what I want, and what I'm willing to tolerate or not. 

It has been tough yet enlightening to get clear about the meaning of authentic friendships compared to acquaintances.

Work - how to serve differently. 
The clients who become life-long relationships, vs pure professional ones.

What kind of life do I want to build for myself now?

Time, who I am willing to share my time because time is the one commodity we can not reproduce.

Mind, body, and spirit. It's an ever-changing maintenance machine. Strengthen intuition, listen, hear, see, shift, adapt,  upgrade and repeat.

And as heavy as this year has been, it has been one of my best years.

Coming from where I come from, I've struck gold many times. 

I’ve raised an amazing human!

I sell exceptional real estate and work with superstar colleagues (you know who you are)! 

I work out next to the ocean every week and have the luxury of maintaining and enhancing my health.

I get to live my own version of the American Dream.

I get to be 50 and feeling pretty great thanks to my gorgeous, functional medicine doctor who has fixed me up with the right hormones.

I get to have and make choices.

I get to continue to have faith, hope, and promise.

I'm blessed!

Above all, we are blessed to be alive.

Celebrate every day, particularly your birthday! xo

  • Working with Marc was teamwork at its best!
We previewed MANY homes throughout Los Angeles eventually leading him to the beach- I don’t blame him 😉

We consulted and trusted each other through a doozy of an escrow, but with grace, everyone came out winning- Happy!

Clients like these are priceless!

  • Why am I suffering - lol
I forget I need and have glasses!
Bottom line, if you’re a seller, what are you selling off-market?
Convenience, hassle? Why?
Just curious.

I do have access to  many “Off Markets” properties for buyers, but when a seller, are you leaving money on the table when selling off-market? 

My buyers want to know 🤷🏻‍♀️
  • 20 ACRES of flat buildable land. 
Beautiful 360-degree views. Great location, 15minutes to Joshua Tree National Park. Snow-capped mountains to the west in the winter. 
Easy access off paved Border Ave. 
A few Joshua trees on the property, but the land is very buildable. 
Utilities are close, and water lines are in the area. 
Enjoy the stary nights on this 20-acre property. 
Endless possibilities to build your dream home!
Contact me for more details!☎️
  • @oldtonys is the ultimate old school dive bar offering insane ocean views and a delicious and very popular signature drink, “The Fire Chief!”

Great time with some of my faves @verajimeneztv @kbmazza @bherlihy40 ❣️
