Cool People. Cool Homes.
Megan brings serious credentials – Loyola Law, passed the bar on her first try, a position at a large multinational firm – but she wants more from life. She uses her skills for good to help a few select clients find great homes and negotiating the living snot out of the other side. Megan Whipp IS the brightest bulb in the basket.
My name is Megan Whipp. I’ve lived in a number of different places including Tucson, San Antonio, Paso Robles, Long Beach, Redondo Beach, and even Aix-en-Provance, France. I originally came to Glendale when I moved back to Los Angeles in 2013. I’ve been here ever since and absolutely love it!
I’m currently a practicing attorney at Winston & Strawn handling complex commercial litigation. I enjoy using my skills and training to advocate for my clients’ interests, both as an attorney and as a Realtor. My legal training is particularly transferable to my real estate practice because I have experience is negotiations and client representation. I want each and every one of my clients to feel confident that they will get the best possible outcome with me in their corner.
I also have a ton of experience moving to new places—new cities, new homes, new states, new countries. I’m not kidding: I lived in more than 10 different places between 2005 and 2015. My experience has given me an intimate understanding of the feelings, fears and practicalities of moving. Personally, I really like the fresh start each new home offers—how will I arrange the books this time?
I enjoy representing people and helping them navigate complex and important decisions. But perhaps more importantly, I hate to see people unable to protect themselves from injustices.
Right after undergrad, I worked at Medtronic doing inside sales of insulin pumps. Most of my clients were elder patients on Medicare or Medicaid—they desperately wanted, and needed, an insulin pump but were overwhelmed by the cost and the insurance process. I gained a reputation on my sales floor as the go-to person to fight insurance claim denials. I mean, I really loved it.
This was the experience that led me first into the legal field and now into real estate. First-time home buyers often find the home-buying process intimidating and unnerving. Being able to reassure my clients that I’ve got their back is incredibly satisfying.
I’m highly organized and efficient. I can—and actually enjoy—managing numerous deadlines and appointments. My clients can rest easy that I won’t let anything slip through the cracks.
Hm. Well, I don’t think my unreasonable houseplant collection is unusual. The Wall Street Journal published an article last year about millennials buying house plants instead of having kids so I know I’m not alone on this.
I would say that my most unusual life experience is that I’ve living in so many different places as an adult. Living in different cities is an eye-opening experience.
