Real Estate & Property Management is in my blood. By that, I mean when i was 8 years old on a boring Saturday morning while all the other kids were outside playing - I was in the office learning to file and calculate stuff. I would watch my mom and assist her in whatever she needed in the office whenever I could sneak my way in. My mom worked in real estate before I could remember, did everything from on-site resident management, to corporate for a large property management company, to luxury property management, to managing in the high desert to end up becoming a broker and opening up her own real estate & property management company. So when I say, I grew up in the business - I really did!
I moved to the desert and started working front desk at Elite Rentals (later becomes Prestige Properties) back in 2009. Actually, I was thrown into my own office in a whole other city but I only had a few properties - so it wasn't crazy. I moved on to help open up our family restaurant in 29 Palms, The Mango Hut, in 2010 and accidentally stayed there for about a year and half before we ended up closing it down. However, around 2011 I opened up the 29 Palms location for Prestige Properties and would switch between both the restaurant and office. In 2013, one of our owners presented the opportunity to do on-site resident management. I was advised this would be a great opportunity and experience to see if property management is for me or not. So I did that for the next two years at Sandy Palms Apartments. Ended up getting hitched to this big hearted Tongan, moved back to OC and got a Marketing Director & Assistant Property Manager position with Martin Commercial Group. After a year of working in commercial real estate & property management, I went back to the desert and became Director of Operations for Prestige Properties in early 2017.
Prior to my real estate journey, I had years of management and HR experience from a few major retail stores, start up companies, to even managin
