Podley Properties Welcomes Jaclyn Lorenzo

Jaclyn Lorenzo - Headshot

 

Born and raised in the Philippines, Jaclyn moved to California before turning 21. She worked as an Assistant to a Real Estate Broker for 5 years in Northern California. She moved to Southern California to pursue a Master’s Degree in Christian Counseling. Jaclyn worked in the school’s Business Office helping students with their financial accounts.

Jaclyn’s aim as she pursued Counseling was to develop her skills in working with people, before returning to Real Estate. Upon finishing her Counseling degree, she earned her License in Real Estate. She prayed to join a company that cares for their clients and each other, adheres to moral and ethical principles of honesty and fair dealing, and passionately strives to give the best at all times. Podley Properties met each criteria. She walked into that open door excited to start her career as a Realtor.

Jaclyn loves meeting and building friendships with people. Her previous work as a Real Estate Assistant combined with her counseling experience, attention to detail, and trustworthy character make her a great Realtor to work with. She is dedicated to providing you the support needed as you buy or sell properties, while making it a fun experience for you!

In addition to her passion in Real Estate, she enjoys hiking, going to the gym and the beach, and meeting up with friends over coffee or meal.

Podley Properties Welcomes Marianna Valdivia

Marianna Valdivia

Having grown up in Glendora and graduating from Glendora High School, Marianna Valdivia is very familiar with Glendora and the surrounding areas. She has always had an interest in real estate, and for the last 10 years she has worked in escrow. This experience in escrow helps Marianna to have a deeper understanding of the buying and selling process than most agents.

She loves to help people, and takes great pride and pleasure in helping clients in selling their current home or finding and buying their dream home. Marianna knows how stressful the home buying process can be. She makes the extra effort to let her clients know that they can trust her, and to provide the easiest experience as possible every step of the way.

Marianna is married with three children; two boys, five and three, and a stepdaughter who is sixteen.

Podley Properties Welcomes Priscilla Nelson

Priscilla Nelson - Headshot

Priscilla Nelson grew up in Chino, California, where her father was a pastor at a local church serving the quaint community. After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychobiology from U.C. Riverside, she worked in cancer research at world-renowned City of Hope Medical Center in Duarte. She developed a love for real estate while living in beautiful Pasadena, California. The architectural significance of the homes and neighborhoods fueled her passion, and in 2011 she obtained her real estate license.

 

As a lifelong resident of the Inland Empire/San Gabriel Valley, Priscilla will use her insider knowledge to work to find a special property in your neighborhood of choice and utilize the latest marketing tools to expose your property to the widest possible range of qualified buyers.

 

Priscilla’s choice to partner with Podley Properties was an easy one to make. As a locally-based company, Podley Properties has a collaborative team that is knowledgeable enough to bring a supportive, personal experience to every transaction and established enough to be known for having an impeccable reputation and many years of experience in the communities it serves. Every transaction has the support of the company’s collective resources and expertise.

 

In her free time, Priscilla loves being with friends and family. She enjoys exploring new restaurants, seeing her favorite music artists perform, and participating in regional 5k/10K events.
