Specializing in

Having worked in San Diego as a Real Estate Agent for a number of years, Vanessa possesses the know-how and detailed understanding of the San Diego market that is essential to closing deals in a way favorable to her clients. This strong understanding of the San Diego market in addition to her dedication to her clients is the reason a large amount of Vanessa's business comes from referrals from past clients. Vanessa specializes in the coastal areas of San Diego, however over the past ten years she has sold homes all over San Diego County. She will go where her clients take her and has, over the years, accumulated extensive local knowledge of all the communities in San Diego.


Born and raised in Irvine California, Vanessa has been selling all her life! Before she was old enough to join Girl Scouts, Vanessa had the top cookie sales for her older sister’s troop. Her sister would dress her up in an oversized uniform and Vanessa would do all the door to door sales. Ever the little entrepreneur, Vanessa started a car wash business at age six and babysitting business at eight. When she was fifteen she managed to save up enough money to buy her dream car, a cherry red convertible Miata, and has been involved in sales ever since. Vanessa started selling Real Estate after graduating San Diego State University with a degree in Psychology and it has grown into one of her biggest passions. Vanessa spends her free time volunteering with numerous local charities and is passionate about working with San Diego Big Brothers Big Sisters, an organization she has worked closely with for the past five years. Vanessa is an avid paddle boarder – most evenings you can find her with her Boston Terrier, Marley, paddling Mission Bay near her Crown Point residence. She also enjoys yoga, hiking, spending time with family and friends, and exploring everything this amazing city has to offer.
