Buyer's Agent

Monnie Fanning

Monnie’s true passion for real estate, partnered with her love for design and helping people are what drive her to find her clients their perfect home while making the experience enjoyable and professional.

Upon the completion of her B.S. in Business Administration and B.A. in Spanish at Pepperdine University in Malibu, Monnie worked in various capacities in the technology and gaming worlds at companies such as AskJeeves and Microsoft. In 2008 she landed a role at the Venice office of what was, at the time, a little company called, “Facebook.” As an Account Manager at the vibrant and quickly growing tech startup, Monnie gained many invaluable skills leading her to become the sharp business woman that she is today. During her time in the digital advertising space, Monnie worked exclusively with Fortune 500 companies assisting with the growth and success of their advertising portfolios.

After 15 years in the technology field, Monnie felt it was time for a change. Her experiences owning her own properties in Mar Vista and on the Venice Canals led her to realize her passion for a new field; real estate. Monnie quickly understood that her past business and sales experiences directly translated to the real estate world. A resident of California for over 20 years, Monnie understands the diverse needs of her clients as well as the ins and outs of the many Los Angeles neighborhoods in which she lives and works. Her business acumen, specific neighborhood knowledge, and relatable attitude benefit her clients in a competitive Los Angeles real estate market.

Originally from Texas, Monnie currently calls the Venice Canals home. She is deeply involved in her community and with her neighbors, serving as the Vice President of the Venice Canals Association and the Vice President of the Venice Canals Foundation. When not on the job, Monnie enjoys hiking, rowing in the canals in her little boat, and walking the beach with her husband, Kristian, and their two dogs, Lulu and Copper.

I worked with Monnie Fanning on the purchase of a condominium in West L.A. Monnie and I began working together in May 2017, escrow closed on my new…Condo in December 2017. Monnie helped me fine tune my thinking about what I wanted, in a limited market. It was a long process during which time Monnie patiently listened, advised and ultimately helped structure an offer which resulted in my being the sucessful bid. Monnie's diligence did not end there. She stayed in touch with the selling agent every day to ensure I received all documents I requested and that all paperwork was properly completed. Even after escrow closed she continued to work on my behalf to correct an issue with the HOA Management Company and the Escrow Company. She went above and beyond. I can't imagine going through this process without Monnie.

As a first time home buyer in LA, I was very fortunate to have connected with Monnie. She was accessible whenever I had questions or asked her to…accompany me to see properties. She is very knowledgeable and experienced in the LA market. Just as important to me she is patient, trustworthy, and practical. During the entire process, I felt that my priorities and goals were hers. This is rare in this industry! Her post closing follow up has been just as impressive.
