Like many people, for a long time I wondered what I wanted to be when I grew up. And like many more, I got it wrong with several different jobs before finally getting it right with real estate. The detours were often fun and interesting, including stints as a journalist for NPR, GEEK magazine and various entertainment publications, which took me to Comic-Con and landed my byline in “The New York Times.” Other times, they were less fun, like those dreary 12 years I spent working in financial compliance.

It seems obvious to me now that real estate was my true calling and my biggest regret will be that I didn’t switch careers sooner. I also regret not becoming a homeowner sooner, as I truly believe homeownership is the best path toward financial security. When I did finally buy my little fixer in 2008, a foreclosure in Highland Park, I was a single woman with limited means up against a big bank that refused to negotiate. The entire experience was stressful and isolating, with tons of jargon I didn’t understand being thrown at me daily and the creeping suspicion that everyone involved was only interested in making money off me, my agent included. While lousy at the time, that experience helped shape my philosophy about the kind of real estate agent I promise my clients I will be: one who is patient, not pushy, puts their interests above everything else, is committed to excellence, and believes in total transparency.

It’s the promise I make to you as well, whether you’re looking to purchase your first home (and uneasy about the implications) or ready to sell and trade up. I promise to stay by your side every step of the way and do everything I can to ensure a stress-free experience. And as a native Angeleno (who attended both UCLA and USC — go, Brojans!), I know Los Angeles well, particularly Northeast LA, and not just the neighborhoods, but the restaurants, coffee shops, art walk and community events as well. I’m happy to answer any questions about them while addressing all of your real estate needs.

    Zillow 1 Star Review  Milla is a disconnected realtor. She negotiated a contract for us, yet she was unreliable to see it through fruition. At the end, she “washed her hands” and stopped responding, even though the signed contract we had was not fulfilled.
    We asked a few times for a walk through, but she refused….

    Zillow 5 Star Review  Milla was a great realtor to work with. Patient, not pushy. Down-to-earth, readily available by both email and text. She was laid-back with us, but a strong contender when it came to negotiating.

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  Milla was a great, incredibly knowledgeable realtor who fought hard on our behalf to get us into a home!

    As first time home buyers, we were not sure what to expect going into this process. Upon our first meeting, Milla sat us down for over an hour and explained the homebuying process to us in very…

    Zillow 5 Star Review  Milla was an absolute joy to work with and helped us find our dream home and stay within budget. Initially we thought we would rent for a year, but after realizing the cost of renting would equal a mortgage, we decided to try and purchase a home. Given how hot the SoCal market is, we were skeptical…
