It’s precisely that level of extraordinary service and professionalism that has established Paula not only as a distinguished representative of Sotheby’s International Realty, but also as a valued asset to her community.
Paula specializes in representation by referral on single-family homes and estates throughout the West side of Los Angeles, from Hollywood to Malibu. As the Assistant Manager of Sotheby’s Pacific Palisades office, she is currently ranked in the Top 500 of nationwide agents for NRT, the parent company of Sotheby’s, Coldwell Banker and Century 21. Her insight, perspective and expertise are in part shaped by a real estate career that began in 1990 at Jon Douglas Company. In 1999 she opened the Sotheby’s Brentwood location, and her career as a top-tier agent continued with the Sotheby’s brand at offices in Beverly Hills and Pacific Palisades, where she has served in her current leadership role since 2008.
As a longtime resident of the Westside of Los Angeles, Paula has a proven level of dedication to her community. Along with her professional career and raising a family, Paula has served as a volunteer and fundraiser for local charitable organizations – including Habitat For Humanity, the Junior League of Los Angeles and the American Cancer Society – for more than 20 years. Among her many accomplishments are the founding of the Lincoln Middle School computer lab and the acquisition of playground equipment for the Santa Monica Unified School District. Paula was honored as the recipient of Santa Monica's Community Service Award in 1988 in recognition of her tremendous contributions.
A native Texan, Paula earned a Bachelor’s degree in English and History from Southern Methodist University. She completed her graduate work at UCLA and UC-San Diego and has a lifetime teaching credential in both Texas and California for secondary through Junior College. Her successful career in teaching included stops in Dallas, San Diego and most recently Santa Monica.
Dedicated to her vocation as well as her community, Paula is a true professional who cares about the needs of her clients and has demonstrated a level of expertise that provides both buyers and sellers with the highest level of service.
