Amy has been a recipient of top real estate awards since becoming a realtor. In year one, Amy earned BHHS Pasadena’s first ever “Rookie of the Year” award. In each year following, Amy’s awards gained in prestige and, most recently, Amy was recognized along with her team with the Chairman’s award for being among the top 1% in her field.
My “why” became solidified when my daughter, Avery, was born years seven ago. She inspires me to be my best self: to role model the endless possibilities this life can afford; to show her that hard work yields positive results; and to overcome obstacles with persistence and grace. Avery has also given me the ability to personally relate to the families I represent. I understand what it means to want the best for my family and because of that I will serve you to pursue the best for yours.
My most rewarding experience to date has been earning the opportunity to represent a family home that was a century old inheritance. For four years I learned so much about the family history as I served as a consultant for the many questions that surfaced in every option considered. Ultimately, they decided to list. In looking at the home that was hardly lived in for decades, one might be intimidated by its need for major renovation. But, for me, in getting to know the family I began to imagine the large gatherings in the living and dining rooms. The walls and spaces became the backdrop for the stories I had heard of the generations in the family and I envisioned what it could be to a new family. I was incredibly humbled to have been entrusted with the family’s fondest memories and the sale was rewarding, newsworthy (we were on the evening news and featured in Curbed LA), and highly profitable for the family.
What is it about real estate? I feel as though I found my calling. While in search of my career, I spent time in home improvement in a variety of roles. So, I have a unique appreciation for so many aspects of architecture, design and the possibilities and expenses associated with improvement. Ultimately, I am proud of my career and my role in the lives of those I serve.
Love to do? I love spending time reading with my daughter, Avery. Through silly little stories I get a glimpse at her view of the world, her curiosity and precious imagination.

Personal mantra: The Golden Rule
What brought you into real estate? I’ve always had an interest in real estate but was doing exceptionally well in the automotive space, however when I moved to California that business model was quite different and failed to align with my vision. I ultimately had to make a change so I took a big chance and made a big change. Much of my skillset was transferrable, but I have found that real estate has a far greater upside. I get the opportunity to assist people in buying or selling their most valuable asset.
Who has served as your mentor in your career? In 1996, I was pushed to go to a training seminar to best learn how to sell cars in the 21st century. This seminar was hosted by a gentleman named Grant Cardone who, at the time, was the premier auto sales trainer. I really appreciated his customer focused sales approach and have been using his methodology since. His words speak to my core values. He motivates me like no other professional development speaker prior or over the past few decades. I have seen him speak live three more times as he has become a renowned trainer for business professionals across all fields.
What would the title of a memoir about your life be? My continuous quest to push others to their potential and in the process, reach my own.
When I go back to Ohio my hometown friends claim LA has elevated my sense of style, as if there was room to grow.
When I’m not serving the real estate needs of the LA area you are likely to find me enjoying two-wheel therapy on my motorcycle.
I attribute my success to my mindset. When I put my mind to something I never give up.
The daughter of Real Estate Broker and a Hall of Fame recognized Urban Home Developer in San Diego, Amy inevitably knew her career would end up in Real Estate. Her interests and life experiences are broad. She has worked as a horse wrangler at a dude ranch in Jackson Hole, WY, was the assistant to Barbara Guggenheim at the Beverly Hills office of Guggenheim Asher, and trained as a chef in Florence, Italy, and later concluded her culinary career as the private chef to celebrity mother and daughter Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher.
During her time as a wrangler, executive assistant, chef, and now Realtor, Amy has become adept at working with clients from all walks of life and enjoys learning the personal stories of those with whom she works. When you meet Amy, it will quickly become apparent that she holds at her core a strong sense of ethics, a great sense of humor, and genuine kindness.
My “Why” My father is a developer in the San Diego Real Estate market, specializing in planning and urban housing, and I grew up inspired by his hard work and successes. Watching his determination and passion made me feel capable of accomplishing whatever I set my mind to. I have always been a jack-of-all-trades and have tried out many different career paths before coming back full circle to my calling as a Realtor. As an agent, I bring the entirety of my diverse experience to my work and enjoy giving my all to this job more than anything I have done previously.
Personal mantra: I Got This!
What is important in Real Estate Listening to people and truly understanding what is most important to them. I always want people to know that they are heard. Watching and understanding current market conditions allows me to stay up to date and ensure that I am able to inform my clients about what to expect out of the home buying or selling process. Handing over the keys to clients and seeing their faces light up is what makes me the happiest! They are starting a new chapter of their lives and I want it to be as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.
I am most proud of my beautiful family. Having twin boys has been one of the most rewarding, amazing, yet toughest jobs I have ever had. If anything could prepare me for the challenges of real estate, it’s needing to feed, change, and take care of two infants at the same time. It has helped me develop a much stronger capacity for patience and compassion than I ever thought possible and the love and devotion I have for my family could never be surpassed.
Love to do? When I am not working you can find me playing tennis for the USTA, rooting on the Dodgers…GO BLUE! Riding my horse Sundance, catching up on the latest Netflix hit, or planning my family’s next camping and fly-fishing adventure. I hope I can be of service to you for all your real estate needs!
