Originally settled by Maria Rita Quinteros de Valdez and her husband 1828, the property was called Rancho Rodeo de las Aguas. After she sold the ranch in 1854, it was subdivided and sold. The bulk of the property was bought by the Amalgamated Oil Company but when they failed to find the amount of oil that they had hoped for, they renamed the development "Beverly Hills" after Beverly Farms in Beverly, Massachusetts and began selling lots. When The Beverly Hills Hotel was opened in 1912, Beverly Hills really began to flourish and enough lots were sold that it was incorporated as a city.

What are clients saying about Jamie?
Jamie represented us in purchasing two properties in Beverly Hills. Both were multiple offer situations and she was able to present our offers effectively and professionally. Even though we were competing with other buyers, she was still able to help us secure the properties under market value. Jamie was very trustworthy and knowledgeable throughout the entire escrow process and helped us close the transactions smoothly even though we were overseas. She is always quick to respond to phone calls, texts, and emails at any time of the day. We highly recommend Jamie to anyone looking for a great agent to assist in the purchase or sale of their home! - Andrew
Jamie was one of the best agents. We had listed this property with another agent during the hot season for 6 months. We sold this house in Dec shortly after she took over the listing. We will recommend her to our friends & families. - David & Sharon
This was my first time buying a home and Jamie was terrific in every way. She was ALWAYS responsive and never left a text, email, or phone call unanswered. I knew that any time I had a question or concern, Jamie would address it for me immediately. She was also very knowledgeable about various neighborhoods, positives and drawbacks to certain areas, what expected market prices are, and about the entire homeowner process in general. She was always organized and diligent, and I felt very confident about the purchase thanks to her. I would highly recommend her! -Celeste
