Podley Properties Welcomes Becky Koppenhaver

Becky Koppenhaver.

Becky Koppenhaver is a California native, and has been a resident of the Pasadena and Los Angeles for 25 years. She has intimate knowledge and appreciation for the area’s many neighborhoods. She refers to herself as a “native tourist,” often spending her down time exploring old and new neighborhoods, restaurants, art galleries, coffee houses and anything else that crosses her path.

 

Becky specializes in the sale of residential real estate in the areas of Pasadena, Altadena, and Northeast Los Angeles.

 

Her background in non-profit communications smoothed her professional transition to real estate. She brings numerous attributes of a good real estate professional. These include her natural ability to connect with people, a warm, caring and supportive nature, attention to detail, market knowledge, and the desire to help clients reach their goals, whether selling or buying a house.

 

When Becky isn’t exploring the city, she likes to hike in the foothills above Altadena, bike along the Los Angeles River, and explore California with her husband, her two sons, and her dog.

 

Call her with any questions you may have about buying or selling real estate!

Megan Spargo-Ferrell Shares Her Expertise in Buffini & Co. Magazine

Megan Spargo-Ferrell

 

The most successful real estate professionals are no strangers to the concept of self improvement. They commit to learning and, as a result, their businesses thrive.

 

Buffini & Co. asked some of their most accomplished Members who’ve attended the elite business conference, The Peak Experience, “What are your best tips for personal and professional growth?”

 

Megan Spargo-Ferrell My best tip for personal and professional growth and development is to always be a student; no matter how old you are or how long you’ve been in your career field, be curious, be inquisitive and always be learning. Adjust your mindset to hear and fully consider what is being said. It will create the greatest opportunity for growth.

Hot Property: 1310 Laveta Terrace Featured in the LA Times!


1310 Laveta Terrace - Hot Property
1310 Laveta Terrace // Los Angeles 90026

 

Shock rock legend Alice Cooper has a duplex for sale in Echo Park at $1.299 million. No, this isn’t an investment property he happens to own — it’s a space he has used as a writer’s retreat when in town creating music for himself and the Hollywood Vampires.


The two-unit house was built in 1927 and maintains its Spanish-style roots with arched windows and passages. The 2,027 square feet of interiors, however, look fresh and new with updated kitchens, bathrooms and light walls. The singer-songwriter-actor completely renovated the duplex when he bought it in 2006 for $700,000.
