Real Estate by LaRae

LaRae joined Coldwell Banker Realty in 2020 after a career in nonprofit organizations such as Providence Little Company of Mary Foundation and the University of Southern California. While serving in executive roles, she was known as a go-to person that was recognized for her hard-working professionalism, entrepreneurial style and ability to overcome obstacles. She has an easy manner with outstanding communication skills and a sense of humor.

She keeps her fingers on the pulse of the community by actively participating in professional and civic organizations including the Palos Verdes Peninsula and San Pedro Chambers of Commerce and the Palos Verdes Peninsula Association of REALTORS.  Her real estate work takes her all over Southern California (including Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Coachella and San Diego Counties) and beyond.  Whether relocating or just moving across town, LaRae really enjoys helping people create life plans and finding that perfect home or property that supports that lifestyle.

She was most recently the President of the Board of Directors of the Ridgecrest Intermediate School Parent, Teacher, and Student Association. She has also been recognized for volunteerism at Vista Grande Elementary School – Parent, Teacher and Student Association and her work in homeless services at Chrysalis.

LaRae grew up in the Los Angeles area and is a current resident of Rancho Palos Verdes. Her daughter, Audrey, is a student at Palos Verdes Peninsula High School and they have a Jackapoo (Jack Russell/Poodle) named Beardsley.  They love to travel and are frequent visitors to Croatia where their extended family lives. They also love road trips, tennis, and music.
