Showcase of the 2022 Tournament of Roses Parade Equestrian Units

DETAILS: Wednesday, December 29, 2021 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center located at 480 W. Riverside Dr., Burbank, CA 92506


True to the heritage of Pasadena’s world famous Tournament of Roses Parade, there are 18 equestrian units participating in the parade this year. Carrying on a tradition that began in 1890 when the first Rose Parade was inaugurated with it’s Grand Marshal Francis Rowland and President Charles Holder rode in on horseback.


Over the years, our 4-hooved friends have made appearances in all shapes, forms, colors, costumes and regalia! The 2022 parade promises to deliver in grand fashion. The Valley Hunt Club (which planned the very first Rose Parade) is still continuing the tradition this year. They will be joined by Miniature Therapy Horses, Charros, the Norco Cowgirls and a long list of others cited below. Being the owner of a Norwegian Fjord makes it especially exciting to me that they were chosen as participants for this year. Here’s a complete list of equine participants:

I've been practicing real estate for 17 years now and I'm very passionate about it! I love what I do! I take my responsibility very seriously. This is one of the largest financial decisions that a person will make in their lifetime and it needs to be treated with professionalism and respect.

My goal is to serve my clients by providing the absolute best in service. We are on this journey together and I want you to feel supported from start to finish.

If you are selling, we will start with a consultation on how to get your home ready to show. With the dawn of the internet, selling a home is very different than it was 20 years ago. It’s important that we create a compelling story for your home online so that people want to come see it.

As far as negotiating, I have reviewed and responded to literally hundreds of contracts. You might even classify me as a “paperwork nerd” but it’s a huge advantage to know and understand the paperwork of real estate. Not only does it protect you from potential liability but it also leans on the experiences of the many who have gone before you. There is always something new to learn but I have seen and navigated through most problems that arise within a real estate transaction.

If you are buying, I look forward to the journey of discovering your next home. It is a process and so it takes time, patience and effort to hone in on what’s just the right match for you. You need to prioritize your wants and needs to fit your budget and that is not always easy to do. You also need good advice and guidance as to what is practical and realistic for your situation.

I also specialize in equestrian properties. I have very deep roots and experiences within the horse community which give me a network to tap into. I speak the language of “horse” so I’m able to intelligently speak to a buyer about the amenities of a horse property. This is a niche that should not be overlooked if you live on a property zoned for horses.

In summary, I want my clients to feel like they are the center of my attention from the first step they take to the handing over of the keys. I would love to sit down and talk with you about your particular situation so we can strategize a plan for accomplishing your real estate goals.
