Biography

Trustee Singer began her real estate career in 2000 as a transaction coordinator. She obtained her license at the age of 18. One of her first accomplishments was helping her parents purchase their first home. After experiencing firsthand the challenges and stresses that home-buying entails, she wanted to guide others through this intricate process. Trustee Singer's passion to help others obtain the American dream continues to motivate her in her real estate career. Her ability to speak Spanish helps her simplify this often-complicated process when working with her Hispanic community. 

In 2006, Trustee Singer pursued her real estate career in the REO industry and worked for a leading REO asset management company in Newport Beach, CA. For over six years, she experienced selling bank-owned properties. She was responsible for property maintenance, rehab, marketing, contract review, negotiation, escrow, and eventual sale of thousands of properties across the nation. With over 15 years of experience in the real estate industry and its many facets, Trustee Singer continues to be passionate in assisting buyers and sellers in all of their real estate endeavors. She believes through hard work, dedication and consistency all goals can be achieved.

She recently celebrated her 14-year wedding anniversary. She and her husband are long-time residents of Huntington Beach and parents of two girls, one at Vista View Middle School and another at Lake View Elementary School, where Trustee Singer is the current PTO president. As a parent leader, she provides oversight and planning responsibilities for a variety of school-wide committees, activities and events, some of which are open to the surrounding community. In previous years, she served consecutive terms as the President of our District’s PTA/PTO/PTSA/PTSO Roundtable, which consists of parent leaders from 17 schools throughout Ocean View. Additionally, Mrs. Singer volunteered on the Measure R bond committee in 2016 and supported our District’s updated volunteer policy.
