Bérénice de la Salle began her career in sales as a stockbroker for Merrill Lynch in Paris. After ten years in France, she came back to her native California with her family to develop residential property in the Brentwood and Pacific Palisades areas of West Los Angeles. A resident of Mammoth Lakes since 1988, she has been active in community affairs for many years and served as an elected Councilwoman for the town from 1998 to 2000. She is a graduate of Briarcliff College for Women in New York where she majored in art.
• Bérénice was familiar with every aspect of the house, from the ground up, along with its building history, and was able to intelligently answer questions from prospective buyers. When we opened escrow, that’s when she really kicked into gear. She was always on top of things, keeping tabs on deadlines, escrow, inspections, the buyers’ responsibilities, our responsibilities, every aspect. When the negotiations got bloody, she defended us.
There are a million realtors in Mammoth. In my opinion, Bérénice is the best.

• "Bérénice is truly the agent a professional broker would hire to sell his own property. Unlike those agents whose selling stops when the "listing" is signed, Bérénice works every angle, with sophistication, intelligence, unparalleled business expertise, and a commitment to succeed. My guardian angels were certainly looking out for me when they sent Bérénice!"

• I have bought and sold dozens of properties over the years and accordingly have come across many realty agents, most of whom quite frankly, are not skilled in business protocols and techniques of negotiation. Berenice is the exception. She applied vigorous energy from the outset applying innovative marketing efforts, and when an interested buyer appeared, she skillfully managed to bring the buyer into escrow and was able to keep them there, ultimately closing after several precarious developments threatened the closing.
There are three stages a good agent must perform for success; Marketing, negotiation and closing. All three are key, but without closing, deals do not get done. Bérénice is a strong closer.
