As the daughter of two prominent civil rights activists, Toni grew up with a deep appreciation for the impact a passionate individual can make on society. The principles of charity, self-love, and progress would later come to define her career. After earning her degree in Business Administration from the University of Washington, she took her first corporate job. Still, it was not until she returned to her birthplace of Los Angeles that she started to realize her true capabilities.
Toni’s natural business acumen and ambitious nature made her a perfect fit for the entertainment industry. She took her first prominent position as Investment Manager for Dick Clark Productions, where she played a crucial role in making the company public. She went on to take the title of Senior Vice President with the legendary Motown Productions and de Passe Entertainment, where she continued her prolific career.
After twenty years in entertainment, Toni began exploring new opportunities in the business world. Expanding the International presence of the South African holistic health and wellness franchise, Madame et. Monsieur proved to be a pivotal moment for her. She mastered her innate ability to affect people’s lives directly. Though she would eventually sell the business, that spirit of generosity continued to motivate her as she began her career in real estate.
Beginning with Prudential John Aaroe Realty in Beverly Hills, a luxury boutique brokerage and transitioning to Keller Williams Realty Santa Monica/Pacific Palisades/Malibu, for 13 years serving as the Broker of Record, she has guided and mentored thousands of realtors, home sellers, and buyers through life-changing real estate decisions, winning several industry awards in the process. She has since taken her successful Real Estate Brokerage Brand on to partner with the publicly traded eXp Realty, World Holdings, Inc, the Global Cloud-Based Brokerage, a disrupter in the industry that will allow her to stay at the cutting edge forefront of the real estate world for years to come.
