Wendy Jo Kjorness

Director of Estates

After graduating with a BA from the University of Southern California, Wendy spent 2 years living and studying abroad. During her travels she gained the love of diverse architecture and historic design. Upon her return she worked both as the Director of Marketing and Director of Event Planning for TBS Media. She then moved to radio station Star 98.7 in Los Angeles. She used her ability to negotiate and think creatively to become a top-producer while further developing her client servicing skills.

She started renovating houses 14 years ago while working in radio. She realized that her true love was in real estate and decided to leave her job to pursue her passion full-time. She has been successful real estate investor for the last 6years and hasn’t looked back since. She enjoyed the process of selling a home so much that she decided to use her talents to help her clients sell their homes.

One of the most exciting parts of the process for her is the staging of the house and she thinks it can be a vital aspect of selling a home. She learned to be creative on a budget and make some of the most inviting spaces. With an ever changing economy she began to take on clients and the “re-design” of their homes. She specializes in using the core of what the client already has and re-working furniture placement and bringing in new pieces to update the space. This is a less invasive, less expensive way to stage a home for sale.

Through all these experiences she gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about all aspects of residential home construction (architecture, detailing, flooring, kitchen appliances, fixtures, etc.); knowledge that can be valuable in the analysis of homes you may be looking at for purchase or in how to best ready your current home for sale.

Committed to excellence and professionalism, Wendy sets the bar at providing only the highest level of real estate services. Her mission is to operate with honesty and integrity and to always have her client’s best interest at heart. She is truly focused on being an invaluable adviser to her clients so they can make the best decisions when selling or investing.

Always keeping tabs on the ever-changing market, Wendy has the confidence to represent and negotiate for her clients knowing that she is armed with the latest and best tools and knowledge. She is passionate for success and dedicated to making sure her clients’ transactions are a rewarding experience.

So whether you are buying your first home, or an existing homeowner trading up – she will show you what it is like to have a dedicated real estate agent working on your behalf. Wendy believes that buying or selling a home is amongst the most important financial decisions most of us make and loves more than anything to see the expression on a buyers face when they are finally coming home.
