What is your favorite time of day during the weekend?
My favorite time of day is definitely noon. The sun is usually shining in LA, and I can be found either showing amazing listings to my clients or chasing my kids around at various children’s birthday parties!
What is the best compliment you ever got that you always keep close to your heart?
“Your positive energy makes me want to have fun and relax.”
Be real, what makes you smile the most?
My kids are Siena (7), Gemma (5), and Jack (2). They are so hilarious; it is like a comedy show 24/7. They are totally unpredictable, and I never know what they are going to say or do. For example, Jack’s favorite saying right now is, “That’s so random.” Last week, he pointed to a lady sitting on the floor reading a novel in public and said, “Mommy, that’s so random!” I just cracked up.
The most expensive thing you ever splurged on that you may or may not regret?
I love our Kauai Dream House. We bought it off the market from our friends, and we weren’t at all prepared for buying a vacation rental in Hawaii. But, sometimes, when “random” opportunities fall into your lap, you must take them. At this point, it is one of the best things we have ever done, for both our family and business. We spent 3 months there during the height of COVID and the memories we made are unforgettable.
What makes you feel like you?
To be honest, staying busy. I like to drink a bunch of coffee, make the kids breakfast, exercise in the morning, and work all day, but I have fun while doing it.
How do you keep your cool in odd situations?
I am naturally relaxed, and I don’t know why. It has always been something that other people notice and comment on. I feel like life is too short to sweat the small stuff, and sometimes odd situations can be hilarious, especially as a real estate broker (dealing with unique personalities) and as a mom (blowouts on an airplane with no change of clothes). These things make me laugh. It’s good to find humor in different situations.
What are the things that you first notice about a person?
If they are positive and have good vibes.
Your most played song right now?
Nonsense by Sabrina Carpenter
Guilty pleasures.. name at least 3.
Chocolate Chip Cookies, Spicy (Serrano Pepper) Margaritas, and Cheese Fries from In N Out!
If you could switch lives with your personal hero for a day, what would you do?
I really like Shay McGee of Studio McGee. She has really mastered balancing being a superstar mogul while being a phenomenal mother of three. If I could switch lives with her, I would just soak up everything I could to learn how to grow my brand like she has with such grace and confidence.
