"Real estate is one of the biggest investments a person can make — it's intensely personal. Experience and knowledge count in maneuvering through transactions with finesse while maintaining a positive frame of mind."
The cornerstone of Jessica's professional philosophy is based on her own experience of cultivating the American Dream. "I grew up in a middle-class family with parents who worked hard and told us we could earn whatever we wanted to be," says Jessica. "I believed that and chose a profession where there would be no limit to my growth potential, other than my own motivation to succeed. So when I help someone buy or sell a property, I'm also helping them achieve the next step in their own American Dream."
Jessica is a Los Angeles native whose firm belief in community service is rooted in the idea that "We are here to serve one another" She has volunteered with Meals on Wheels, delivering meals to the elderly; School on Wheels, tutoring children in transitional housing; and Verdugo Hospice, visiting with patients.

Always ready for a challenge, she also enjoys trying new activities and mastering her favorites. A few of her pastimes include sailing with the California Yacht Club, rowing crew with the Los Angeles Rowing Club and hitting the dance floor to showcase her Latin ballroom skills.
