I joined Podley Properties as an independent residential and commercial real estate broker in 2010 specializing in properties in the San Gabriel Valley, where I call home. A few neighborhoods that I have serviced in the past decade include: Pasadena, La Cañada Flintridge, San Marino, Arcadia, and South Pasadena. Since 2012, I have consistently been a Top Producing agent at my brokerage.
I owe part of my success as a Realtor® to my ability to speak and read Mandarin, many of my clients are Chinese nationals, abroad and locally. As a longtime resident of the San Gabriel Valley, I am able to share my intimate knowledge of the communities in the area. Everything from private and public school systems to local amenities, I use in my approach in finding the perfect home for my clients. Many of my most successful transactions have begun with long distance communications with prospective buyers or sellers; and due to my knowledge of the minutiae of Real Estate transactions, I have been able to close many sales without having owners or buyers present. With the rapid changes COVID-19 have brought on our personal and professional lives, I am no stranger to remote work! My priority always being my clients’ well being and safety.
I always bring to my clients the ability to present their property in the best possible way by leveraging home staging, great photography, excellent copywriting, and an in-house Marketing Department to provide support. For those selling a property, I provide simple ideas and concepts on improvements that could bring more value to the property and identify staging options to maximize their interior space and design, as well as landscaping options to create more curb appeal for the exteriors of the home. I identify a pool of prospective buyers and use my marketing strategy to fit the needs of my clients.
By taking the time to get to know the needs and wants of my clients, I always keep their needs and tastes in mind. This approach has proven successful in representing clients at all income levels. I genuinely enjoy working with people and am able to build rapport easily by being a good listener and valuing their individual needs. I am successful at contract negotiation, mediating conflict, and have always come highly-recommended by those who I have worked with.
