Proving quickly that she has what it takes to achieve success for her clients, Sylvia Dunbar closed nine transactions in her first eight months as a Realtor and was named Rookie of the Year. She has continued that success throughout her stellar career which now spans more than a decade.
Business acumen and insight, negotiation skills and the ability to evaluate market value are all strengths Sylvia gained as a business owner and entrepreneur and has fine-tuned as a real estate professional. Her clients and colleagues alike value those vital elements of her expertise. Indeed, accolades always follow her transactions.
An additional key to the success Sylvia attains for her buyers and sellers is the energy directed into meeting their unique needs. She listens carefully and provides timely, knowledgeable information such as analysis and estimation of renovation or repair costs, skills she has attained by personally owning and maintaining several homes. Sylvia's residence in west side areas such as Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica and Malibu (Sunset Mesa) have also allowed her to gain a local's insight into neighborhoods, services, schools and other community information.
Giving back is an important part of Sylvia's philosophy. She donates 10% of her commissions to a variety of local charitable organizations, she volunteers for Meals on Wheels West and is active in Soroptimist International LA West/Santa Monica.
