I moved to Southern California in 1973 from Brooklyn, NY. I lived by the beach in Brooklyn. I graduated from Abraham Lincoln HS and Brooklyn College with a degreein Education. Relocating to Torrance … well I am still only 10 minutes to the Beach. It’s the weather! Having enjoyed Broadway theater in NY, it was an easy transition to becoming involved with local theater groups. I am a volunteer at Little Fish Theater in San Pedro; and a Board Member for the Friends of the Torrance Theatre Co in downtown Torrance. I keep up with the dynamics of an Homeowners Association by being a Board Member. I enjoy traveling around the United States visiting family and seeing our wonderful country as well as watching movies and business building events. My spiritual family is very important to me.
I am a licensed Realtor since 1979. I specialize in representing my clients in the purchase and sale of single-family residences and income property within the South Bay area of Southern California including Long Beach and Orange County. I truly love this area and pride myself on my knowledge of current transactions, school districts, neighborhood information, and related services, including mortgage, insurance and inspection information.
I am a customer driven Realtor dedicated to achieving results and providing exceptional service. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, I will put my 30+ years of real estate expertise to work for you!

“Sometimes selling a house is a fun and exciting time.”
“Sometimes selling a house is a fun and exciting time; the beginning of a new chapter for a family, a great new journey. And sometimes the need to sell a house is born from a negative situation that is filled with stress and strife among various family members. We had the distinction of the latter. The need to sell this home was a difficult decision for the family, but Carol helped make it less painful in so many ways. She went above and beyond in selling this property; she worked quickly and efficiently, she helped us secure a great price that went a long way to ease the worries held by some of the family members, and she made sure that everything went smoothly. There were so many other things to worry about during the sale of this house, and Carol knew that and did everything she could to make sure the sale was not one of them. She’s responsive to the needs of her clients; she got a few requests for things that I’m sure were tedious for her to do, and probably completely unnecessary, but she did them with a smile, and in a timely manner. She understood what everyone was going through, and she just wanted to make it better any way that she could. I can’t say enough about how kind and patient she was throughout this process. I highly recommend Carol for anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property. She is a savvy real estate professional, who knows how to handle her business, and yours! If you team up with her, she will always have a smile, she will always listen to you, and she will always give you 110%.”
“We liked that you kept us informed on a weekly basis at minimum.”
“You were ALWAYS there to answer questions.”
“You proved to be a tireless and determined guide!”
“You are a tireless worker!”
“We could not have bought this place without your efforts!”
“Thanks so much for your help in the sale of our home in Torrance.”
“Thank you for assisting us in selling our property.”
“We appreciated your keeping us informed through all of the problems.”
“We couldn’t be happier.”
"I wanted to say 'thank you' for a wonderful experience during our first home purchase. The process was very smooth and stress-free for Kumiko and I. You were very organized and attentive to detail. We couldn't be happier. My brother Abel and his wife Kathy are looking into buying their first home also and I referred them to you. I hope they contact you soon. I'm sure they will agree that you are good. If I or anyone I know have any real-estate needs, you will definitely be the 1st I call. Again, thanks for a wonderful experience."
“We felt that you were truly representing us.”
“Thanks again for all your help.”
“No One Could Have Done It Better!”
“I will be happy to recommend you to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.”
“I will be forever grateful.”
“Carol is very professional and was attentive to our desires for the perfect home.”
“If we ever outgrow this home, we’ll definitely be calling you!”
“Carol, Thank you!”
“She is aggressive and honest.”
“Thanks for taking such good care of us, we couldn’t have done it without you!”
