Podley Properties recently held two Top Producer panels in Monrovia. The first was on July 15th, and moderated by General Manager Crystal Narramore. “Making Your Real Estate Business A Reality,” featured former Rookies of the Year Jessica Cardenas, Colette Dorn and Jack Harriman. These three associates started with Podley Properties as rookie agents and quickly gained the momentum to become top producers in their first full year. They presented great ideas and inspiration on how they gave a kick-start to their real estate businesses.
A second panel, “Getting To & Being At The Listing Table,” was held on August 5th and moderated by Randy Abrams, Manager of the Monrovia and Glendora offices. The panel members included Regina DaVanzo, Jeannie Garr Roddy, Rana Madain and Jim Rock. As veterans in the business, they were open and candid about sharing their experiences. They were very diverse in their styles proving that there are many faces to success.
Podley Properties strives to create a learning experience that is meaningful for Associates at all levels and takes pride in its distinctive position as one of the oldest and largest independently owned, non-affiliated real estate firms in the San Gabriel Valley and Foothills.

Bright 768-Square-Foot Cottage in Eagle Rock Asks $675K
Bonus: It's got a large, converted studio in the backyard
This article was originally published on Curbed LA
2324 RIDGEVIEW AVENUE, EAGLE ROCK 90041
This little Eagle Rock cottage is just under a mile south of the neighborhood's main drag, Colorado Boulevard. Built in 1924, its interior is newly renovated. While the house has period doors and doorknobs and hinges, it also has a fancy, modern Duravit sink and central air conditioning and heating. Copper plumbing and a newish roof on the main residence have also been added.
The green cabinets in the kitchen are a rare touch of bold color in the bright, white house. The theme carries into the house's one and a half bathrooms, which sport white subway tiles.
The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a sliding barn door, and an adjoining patio deck. The deck looks out onto the backyard, where there’s a 400-square-foot studio. The studio has "custom made accordion doors" that open fully onto the yard.
Located just off Eagle Rock Boulevard, the 768-square-foot house is asking $675,000.

Mandy Liu’s passion for real estate and business began when she was in high school. During her first year in college Mandy launched her first fashion shoe boutique and by her fourth year of college she owned four stores which provided her the means to purchase three beautiful real estate properties near her university.
Upon finishing grad school at George Washington University, Mandy worked for two years at the Hyatt Hotel as a Guest Relations Manager. She spent the next two years as the assistant to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor, Elaine Chao. After President Bush’s administration, Mandy joined the Office of Federal Compliance Programs acting as a Managerial Effectiveness Analyst where she learned to master and utilize her analytical skills.
Mandy’s prior experience has allowed her to have a keen understanding of the real estate model and investment procedures. As such, Mandy has successfully helped friends and family with investment opportunities through the acquisition of properties spanning from the east to the west coast. Because of her association with an immigration law firm, Mandy has traveled on numerous occasions to China to conduct presentations for EB-5 visa investors allowing her to refer many of these individuals to invest in U.S. real estate.
Mandy has traveled across the globe, interacted with diverse cultures, tasted their cuisines, and has created long lasting relationships at every stop. Ultimately Mandy returns to the place she loves and calls home, Los Angeles. The active life style this city has to offer allows Mandy to enjoy sporting activities such as golf, tennis, swimming and, one of her favorite hobbies, hiking. As your Realtor®, Mandy is very familiar with top ranking schools, beautiful parks, artistic communities and up-and-coming areas; She will take pride in having you as a client, working for you on a daily basis whether it’s for the purchase or sale of real estate properties.
