Vanessa grew up playing in front of her parents photo studio on 7th& Broadway in Downtown Los Angeles and took her first steps in front of the legendary Roxie Theater. Born to a Chinese/Filipino mother and Argentine father, she only spoke Chinese and Spanish until she entered kindergarten.

She earned her B.A. from the University of California, Berkeleywhere she double majored in History and Political Science while holding down jobs at the Daily Californianand Kaiser Permanente. She obtained her real estate broker’s license soon after. Ironically, Vanessa only planned on doing real estate to save for law school, then discovered she loved real estate and never revisited a J.D.



She has always lived in Los Angeles’ Eastside from Silver Laketo the first home she bought in Highland Park. She loves the Eastside so much that she rarely makes it past WeHo. With her Asian background, she also maintains strong ties to the San Gabriel Valley where most of her extended family lives.

On her free time she enjoys traveling, cooking, obscure documentaries, working on her organic veggie garden, playing with her dogs and Words With Friends. She’s also a 3x Elite Yelper, Korean BBQ enthusiastand frequenter of food truck, music and film festivals.
