My husband Mark and I have lived in Hidden Hills for past 25 years where we have raised our three children, Andrew, Ryan and Caitlin. Once an entertainment journalist, I traded in my steno pad for my Real Estate License and turned my hobby and passion of looking at houses into a full-time career. Having lived in the Hidden Hills area for so many years and having been very involved in all three of our children's education, I feel my knowledge and involvement in the school district and our community is an asset to all of our clients whether they are buyers or sellers. I have also served as a board member on the Hidden Hills HOA for many years.
Sara Shevin is the newest member of the Shevin team. Sara attended public and private school in Calabasas and graduated with honors from the film school at Chapman University last year, before getting her real estate license and joining the family business.
