I chose to work here in Malibu, because I live and breathe Malibu. Falling in love with it for the last 10 years. This is my unique combination and where I need to be in the world; with the climate, the ocean and my love of the water, the mountains, living amongst nature, the tranquility, seeing the stars at night, hearing the coyotes, seeing the bobcats, and watching the dolphins most days. Having the opportunity to get on a surfboard and feeling the energy of the ocean life. Being so close to an amazing 1st world metropolitan city like Los Angeles and at the same time feeling remote. I’ve traveled the world and found a similar beauty to what we have here in many remote places, but Malibu offers the city life as well. All of these things come together and is my unique place. Exactly where I need to be and want to help people with similar passions in their life to find their home. The community in Malibu is like no other I’ve found in the world. I'm very grateful to be a Malibu Real Estate Agent. Cherie Iseppi
