Originally from New Jersey, Matija moved to San Diego after graduating from Rutgers University where she dedicated her studies to history and political science. A two-year stay turned into forever as she fell in love with everything America's Finest City has to offer.
Previously Matija worked in the bridal industry where she helped brides make emotional decisions choosing their wedding gowns. Quickly after, she propelled her leadership into management. She later led entrepreneurs at a national rate into making the best financial decisions through small business lending. With a decade of exposure in sales, management and lending, she launched her Real Estate career.
Having lived throughout San Diego county, she has taken the opportunity to learn the history of each area. As a home owner herself, she understands the process, guidance and support required for each transaction. Her organizational skills, drive, and tenacity help her find the perfect property for her clients.
She lives with her amazing husband Joe where she enjoys the beach, yoga, her kitties Penne and Orzo, and spending time meeting new people. With family from Croatia and in-laws from Italy, food is a center of her life and a great way to explore San Diego. Growing up with such a strong cultural influence and spending summers in Europe with family, she has learned that every property has an exciting history, and each home defines its own while waiting to create yours.
