Over the course of her storied career, Gillian has served in both leadership and sales roles, garnering a breadth of client-centric experience that has proven invaluable to a diverse set of buyers and sellers across Southern California. After relocating to California from her native Canada, Gillian met her husband, a Commercial Realtor. The two joined forces and created a real estate partnership with more than 30 years of experience in both residential and commercial real estate across North America with a focus on Coachella Valley.
Before joining The Agency, Gillian was a Managing Director for La Quinta Resort & Spa, a Waldorf Astoria Property, managing the company’s three real estate divisions. Prior to her career in real estate, she specialized in cosmetic dentistry in Newport Beach and Beverly Hills, attending to a distinguished clientele ranging from the Gray Family of Grayse and St. John to Buzz Aldrin, Cher, Barbra Streisand, Gwen Stefani and George Clooney. During this time she mastered the art of impeccable customer service, an eye for beauty and the utmost attention to detail, traits which carried over seamlessly to real estate.
An adventurer at heart, when Gillian’s not representing clients in real estate, she enjoys spending time with her family, running marathons, and fitting in travel whenever time allows. She has served on the board of numerous charitable organizations throughout the Coachella Valley and was a Girl Scout troop leader for several years. Most recently, she served as 2017 President for National Charity League Desert Cities and remains an active member with her two daughters.
