Tell me a little bit about yourself? Where are you from? What do you like? What brought you to TRG?
I hail from NYC, my first great love. Travel is my second. My background is acting and modeling and corporate furnished rentals. I love to sing, read, think about meditating and trips to Palm Springs. I have been a proud resident of Los Angeles for the past 10 years. I came to LA with the intention of staying for a few months. And to the shock of all my friends I stayed! I was in real estate in NYC and had no intention of picking it up again in LA. When I was looking for a rental, I came across The Rental Girl marketing. I was struck by how fresh it was. So much so that I sent an email and the rest is history.
What is your favorite part about being an agent?
Getting to explore LA via showing properties. It has been amazing. I now know Koreatown and Mid City well! Also, every day is different and challenging in the best possible way. Also, the breathtaking architecture never fails to inspire. I love to see the renters excitement when they discover the details of our vintage units.
What is one of your guilty pleasures?
The Ice Cream at Salt and Straw. HEAVEN. Actually, I have zero guilt about that, and neither should you!
What is your favorite restaurant or place to eat in your rental neighborhood?
Too many to list but if I had to, Park’s BBQ for the best BBQ in the city. One of my favorites is Openaire at the Line Hotel. It is a restaurant located in a greenhouse with lush greenery and killer views of the pool.
How would you describe your neighborhood/territory?
Amazing. Koreatown is vibrant and fast just like NYC. And do not sleep on the architecture here. Some of the most stunning in the city. And the food is OMG good. Great restaurants are everywhere. I am always discovering something new.
What is a hidden/undiscovered attraction or eatery in your neighborhood?
Chapman Plaza is stunning. I’ve driven by it quite a few times and finally noticed that besides being stunning, it also has the most gorgeous cobblestoned courtyard with several shops and restaurants.
What travel location is on your bucket list to visit in the next year?
Ahh.. I want to go to Tokyo.
What is the most quintessential LA thing about your neighborhood?
All of the different cultures are a beautiful thing.
What is your favorite thing to do, unrelated to eating, in your neighborhood? Bar? Boutique? Exercise spot?
My new obsession is Orangetheory and they just opened up in my hood!
What is the best car alternative to get around your neighborhood?
The Metro! Super convenient.
What is your favorite way to spend your weekends?
I love relaxing with my husband and going on little day trips. We love exploring CA.
