7. Any tips for 1st time buyers?
Yes…If you decide not to buy all cash…I think that the most important step is getting pre-qualified right before searching for your home or investment. This way you know exactly your price range and know how much of a mortgage you can get. Another tip would be to not buy based on emotions. Of course it is always exciting to buy your first home however it is very crucial that you keep the investment aspect always in mind.
Do your research…find out about the neighborhood, history of the house and get comps for the area.
8. What do you enjoy outside of work?
Family, friends, my dog, hiking…My favorite spot is Pacific Palisades… I plan the monthly EuroCircle events in Los Angeles. So much fun.
I love to give back to my community. I volunteer time and support various charities and also serve on the PTA executive board of my child’s school
