Enthusiastic about diverse outdoor activities like beach outings, bike rides on the Balboa Peninsula, exploring the boardwalk, paddle boarding in the back bay, enjoying boat and jet ski rides on the river, and off-roading adventures in Glamis. A southern California native committed to assisting others in achieving homeownership, a key avenue for building independent wealth. Facilitating your journey towards owning a home, as doing so was a significant source of pride for me, I'm eager to guide you to a similar sense of accomplishment. Let's discover your dream home and embrace the satisfaction of building equity together.

Committed to navigating Newport Beach's real estate landscape with expertise and empathy, my mission is to facilitate seamless division of assets in divorce situations, ensuring my clients transition to new beginnings with confidence and clarity.
I would like to introduce you to Kali, my beloved pet. She is a ball of energy, always up for some fun and a faithful companion. One of our favorite activities is exploring the Newport Beach trails. Being outdoors and discovering new places is something we both enjoy. Taking a walk in nature is an excellent way for me to unwind and rejuvenate.
Every week, I set a personal goal to walk for at least three days with a minimum of 10,000 steps. During these walks, I love to explore new trails available in the Orange County area. I often invite my friends, daughter, and pets to join me in experiencing the great outdoors.

Recommendation - Denise Mitchell

I have known Katie for many years in different capacities along the way...first as a Loan Processor, then as an Escrow Officer, then as Escrow Manager and finally as Operations Manager. In these 20+ years, she has always had the reputation of someone people liked and trusted. As a manager, she developed a keen skill for managing challenging personalities, which is quite an asset in any industry as a manager, let alone the mortgage industry with its cast of characters. Another important trait that she developed along the way is resourcefulness. She does not just pass the buck but will go the extra mile required to get an answer or get the situation resolved-also highly relevant when it comes to Operations management of any industry.

I would highly recommend Katie in any capacity of management as she would be an invaluable asset on any team. Upper management as well as her employees will love her and feel lucky to have her on their side.
