The Real Estate Mom
A Southern California native, Courtney graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Southern California.

So began a successful run in residential real estate which now spans more than two decades. Above all, she strives for exemplary customer service with a can-do spirit.
Courtney is a mother of two, a classically trained pianist, French speaker and never turns down a good meal.
Kurt, also born and raised in California, graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Communications.
He started his real estate career in West Seattle, where he was the number one realtor for the better part of a decade. After taking a two-year sabbatical, during which he traveled the world with his brother, Kurt landed in Los Angeles and has been practicing real estate in California ever since. He brings the life lessons he learned around the globe to his career, and is always certain to keep his priorities straight.
Kurt is a sucker for a killer bottle of wine and an afternoon game of golf (not in that order!).
