Marisa is a recognized name in the real estate industry, known for her success in buying and selling luxury real estate throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Her passion and interest in high-end, exclusive properties has been the driving force behind her exceptional performance in the industry. Her discipline and work ethic has helped her move up the ranks in the real estate industry, starting as a receptionist, to assistant, and finally as a licensed agent – and now a recognized name in the industry in Los Angeles.
Her first home sale was to Eric Clapton, the renowned musician, for a home in Venice, California. This home was designed by Arcata Isozaki, famed Japanese architect, celebrated for his design of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. Since that time, Marisa never stopped, helping to buy and sell hundreds of exclusive homes in Beverly Hills, Sunset Plaza, Hollywood Hills, the Westside in L.A., and beyond. You have probably seen Marisa’s name on houses for sale across the Beverly Hills area and the surrounding communities.
She is one of the most referred agents in Beverly Hills, and is frequently asked to assist celebrities and business leaders in a sale or purchase, but is equally committed to helping young families their first home in a wide range of areas throughout greater Los Angeles.
After spending fourteen years at Hilton & Hyland, a preeminent luxury real estate brokerage in Beverly Hills, in 2013 she co-founded the Beverly Hills branch of Nest Seekers International, then joining Sotheby’s International Realty with her powerhouse team: The Zanuck Group.
