One of my favorite parts of what I do is helping buyers find the right neighborhood to suit their lifestyle. Los Angeles has so many fantastic neighborhoods with vastly differing personalities. From quirky neighborhoods like Venice, Silver Lake, and North Hollywood, and personal favorites like West Hollywood and Culver City, to established luxury enclaves like Pacific Palisades, Los Feliz Estates, and Larchmont Village, we're sure to find the right fit together. I'll show you where to find the best deals, the best schools, or even the best dog-friendly hikes. As we explore neighborhoods around Los Angeles together, I'll also point out the best places to eat, the best routes to avoid traffic, neighborhood history and celebrity sightings, and even which neighborhood Farmers Market has the best kettle corn. Below is just a taste of what L.A. has to offer. To explore what neighborhoods are right for you, let's talk.
We didn't think we'd find a place we loved in a neighborhood we loved that was in our price range but Tiffany delivered. She a made a seemingly stressful process easy for us and even recommended a lender who got us a great rate on our mortgage. Her patience and follow through was exactly what we needed as first time home buyers. We loved working with her!

Tiffany was also invaluable in helping me find a new home, showing me different parts of Los Angeles based on my desire to be close to work or a Metro line. I almost want to move again so I can work with her again!
