Alissa Solomon launched her real estate career in 1986, but even 25 years later she continues to draw on the creativity-and passion for detail-that fueled her first career, animation.
Born in Salt Lake City and a Los Angeles resident since 1960, Alissa was raised in a real estate family. The investment value and emotional worth of property was everyday conversation as she grew up.
But Alissa was drawn to the world of art and pursued her interest at Otis Art Institute, Art Center in Pasadena and UCLA. That led to a 12-year career as an animator for Disney, for top commercial producers and for video game companies. Working in New York, San Diego, Hollywood and London, she did animation for television, movies and commercials and became a member of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
During that time, Alissa enjoyed buying property for herself and was eventually persuaded to leave her art career in favor of real estate. Starting in the legendary Hollywood Hills, she moved to Sunset Strip, then Beverly Hills, where today she provides her signature residential and investment real estate service "throughout the region, from Glendale to the beach."
"In animation you develop and refine skills," Alissa says, "but you never do the same thing twice. Your vision has to stay fresh. Real estate is like that, too. Every person and every transaction is unique. It's just as creative as being an artist." Alissa continues to develop her formidable business skills, studying psychology, negotiation and even feng shui. "I have great compassion for human needs-where one lives, how one invests is so individual and so important. Seeing that a transaction plays out smoothly and efficiently with the client fully involved is an art."
Alissa is still affiliated with the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and also involved in the Art Deco Society, the Historical Society of Los Angeles, the Wilshire Vista Community, Agape International Community, Dr. Jean Houston Mystery School and Social Artistry, The Twilight Brigade and animal rescue.
