Juana Eva Martinez – Course Instructor
I am a native of Los Angeles and an alumna of LACC, PCC and California State University, Los Angeles where I received my bachelor’s degree, cum laude.
My education background began when I worked my way through college as an educational assistant with Glendale Unified, and later as a private tutor. Once I achieved by Bachelor’s degree I was employed as a substitute teacher with LAUSD. I still apply the skills I learned in my years in education for the benefit of my clients.
With regards to real estate, buying or selling a home is a gratifying endeavor– personally, financially, emotionally, yet navigating transactions can also be a complex process with many concurrently moving parts. In my role as real estate advisor, I employ out-of-the-box thinking to match the right person with the right property. Whether my client is the buyer or the seller, I seek the path less traveled to help them achieve their goals and bypass the clutter in an era of information overload. I have been in real estate since 2002 and I strive to get my client the most rewarding real estate transaction possible: best price, terms, time, and overall experience.
