She also spent 7 years at Wachovia Securities, where she helped provide investment planning and management services for high net worth individuals. As a Realtor, Summer enjoys helping people embark on new stages of their lives and believes in putting clients’ needs first. She lives in Rossmoor with her husband and two children and enjoys gardening and surfing in her spare time.
Alida Schat, Marketing Manager:
Alida oversees marketing for the team’s listings, including flyers, postcards, online presentation and social media, ensuring that each property receives maximum exposure in the best possible light, reaching the prime target market of potential buyers. Alida also manages the team’s blog and newsletter, providing interesting content for past and current clients, and the community. When she’s not focusing on creating the perfect marketing package for each home, Alida can most likely be found playing beach volleyball on one of the many beautiful beaches in southern California.

Joanne Loretz has 40+ years of experience in call center management in the customer service industry. She loves assisting people in resolving issues and making things as easy as possible in a complex world.

She strives to pass on that same feeling to others as they work with the team. Joanne is an animal lover and enjoys spending time with her dogs, gardening, as well as traveling and exploring other cultures.

Brad Jones, Real Estate Consultant
Brad Jones obtained his real estate license and joined the team in 2003. His degree in construction engineering and work in project management & sales in the electrical manufacturing industry provides him with great perspective on the homes the team sells. In addition to working with buyers and sellers, Brad oversees photography for the team, coordinates inspections & repairs, and manages many other functions. He has the eye of a hawk and so is our go-to proofreader for all listing materials and marketing campaigns. Brad was raised in Arizona but has come to love California, specifically the Long Beach area. He enjoys traveling and is a member of several wine clubs.
