    It's a blessing to work with a group of women who all have the same high integrity and work ethics.

    After working as a stay at home mom for several years, Dani received her real estate license in 2002 and has extensive experience processing short sales and REO properties. As a buyer’s agent for the LaPeter Team, Dani uses her experience to work with investors in purchasing fixer uppers, renovating them, and reselling them.

She has four children and a big, extended Croatian family that lives close by. Together they love traveling, going to the beach, playing volleyball, bike riding, hiking and dining at the best restaurants LA and the OC have to offer.

  • Cathy Hall

    DRE # 00938873

    Cathy considers it a privilege to be able to help people realize their dreams through the purchase or sale of an Orange County home.

    Anyone who has ever bought or sold a house will tell you- there is a lot of paperwork involved. Understanding what it all means and where it is supposed to go can be a daunting task. Luckily, the LaPeter Team’s clients have Cathy Hall to guide them through the process. As the LaPeter Team’s transaction coordinator for the past 10 years, Cathy has helped buyers, sellers and agents manage paperwork and stay in compliance so that each Orange County real estate transaction goes smoothly.

    Cathy’s organization, attention to detail and 20 years of experience in real estate have made her an important member of the LaPeter Team. But it’s her love for people that have made her invaluable. She considers it a privilege to be able to help people realize their dreams through the purchase or sale of an Orange County home. During the real estate process many clients become Cathy’s friends and they continue that friendship even after the last paper is signed.

    In addition to working in North Orange County, Cathy is also a resident. She and her husband have lived in Villa Park for 20 years. They raised three wonderful children there and believe that the small town feel and exceptional educational opportunities make Villa Park and Orange great communities for families. Cathy is very active in her community and participates in the Assistance League of Orange and the Villa Park Women’s League. She loves the weather that allows her to garden year round, as well as easy access to the beach and mountains. And of course, the short drive to USC is a perk for this alum and season ticket holder. She considers herself very lucky to live and work in such a great area
