Carinna and TJ are joining forces to create Gaudry-Walthers, a real estate team working with home buyers and sellers throughout Orange County, South Bay and Long Beach, where they reside. Prior to entering real estate, Carinna and TJ were embedded in the fashion industry. Both hold Bachelor degrees from Long Beach State in Fashion Merchandising, and served in a variety of capacities for fashion retailers and designers. This previous experience in a creative and demanding field sets the duo up perfectly for success as real estate professionals. They understand color theory, staging, and how to bring out the lifestyle in a home to make it desirable to homebuyers. They gained extensive background in marketing in all mediums, as well as, customer services and relations with a diverse group of clients. Getting into real estate was inevitable for Carinna, whose father works with Bennion Deville Home`s sister brokerage, Avenue Properties, in Seattle. Being a third-generation real estate professional, growing up around the business gave her an accelerated path as an agent, and helps her have insight into all facets of real estate. Going into business in and around Long Beach was an easy choice for the two as T.J. is a lifelong local, having graduated from Lakewood High School and Cal State Long Beach. His knowledge of the area and extensive local network is a benefit to both buyers and sellers. The duo looks forward to helping you, as well as, your family and friends with any real estate needs!
