The Pacific Ocean lapping at the sand in Redondo Beach.

A little about us ...

Who we are - We are proud to be associates of Beach City Brokers, one of the few remaining independent brokerages in Southern California. Concurrently, we are pleased to add support for the beach cities of Orange County to those we already work in the South Bay.

Our community - We've lived in Redondo Beach since 1979. We actively support our local schools. Carl was elected to the Board of Education as the "Teachers' Choice" candidate in 2003 and again in 2007. We support a host of other community oriented efforts, and have been active in the South Bay Association of Realtors.

Our family - Being in real estate has allowed us the flexibility to spend time with each other and with our two boys, Spenser and Marlowe. Spenser, who is also a real estate licensee, recently graduated from the University of California in Irvine with a degree in Classics. We're a multi-lingual family, with varying degrees of skill in English, Armenian, Spanish, French, Latin, Japanese and ancient Greek.

What we enjoy - We're both avid fans of the written word. Arda has B.A. and M.A. degrees in English Literature and Carl has a B.A. in English. We love live theatre and sponsor "Shakespeare by the Sea" every year (see Links). Arda is a published author and enjoys working crossword puzzles with our son Marlowe. Carl and Spenser are computer geeks. Between them they hand-coded this website.
