I grew up not far from Malibu, and after 30 years of living now consider myself a 'local.' I first came here in my teens and 20`s to surf and have done so ever since - which has given me intimate knowledge of the local beaches and surrounding communities. Later, after traveling the world, I returned to Malibu to attend law school at Pepperdine. I received my law degree in 1984 and never left. I love it here, always have and always will. After graduating law school, I practiced real estate law for over 15 years before becoming a Realtor. My clients say they feel more secure knowing their real estate agent is also a lawyer. For the past 10 years I have been one of Malibu`s leading agents and am a partner at Westside Estate Agency, a luxury boutique firm with offices in Beverly Hills and Malibu. Our sales along the beaches of Malibu are legendary and our platinum rolodex a direct connection to a very elite clientele. For many years I have served as the Vice President of the Malibu Association of Realtors and am also a former Director of CLAW (the greater Los Angeles MLS). Serving the community has only served to broaden my horizons and expertise in the field I love. I offer my client`s a sophisticated and personalized approach to luxury sales and leasing here in the Malibu area, and welcome the opportunity to serve and add value.
