About Yvette Hitchens

Yvette, raised in Los Angeles, California, has three adult children and two stepchildren. She aims to ensure all her children become homeowners by the age of 30. Yvette's journey as a homebuyer in 1996, coupled with her dissatisfaction with six real estate agent's services, propelled her to obtain her real estate license. Commencing as a sales associate with ReMax in Inglewood, California, in 1997, she swiftly acquired her broker's license by July 2000, subsequently establishing a small office in Los Angeles with four agents. Following the market downturn in 2007, she transitioned her focus to property management. However, her passion for assisting buyers and sellers led her back to the real estate field, prompting her to join Keller Williams Realty in 2014. In 2024, she ventured into independence, founding her brokerage, The Hitchens Team at Pacific Estates. With twenty-six years of experience, Yvette has not only assisted clients but has also instructed courses mandated by the California Department of Real Estate. She firmly believes in educating her clients and has acquired various certifications in the real estate industry, including the Military Relocation Pro Certification, Pricing Strategy Advisor, Military Veteran Housing Certification, and Certified Military Relocator, among others. Yvette advises buyers to start their journey from their current situation, acknowledging that not everyone can afford their dream home initially. She emphasizes leveraging Southern California's real estate market for equity growth, either by selling to upgrade or by turning their property into an income source through renting. Having witnessed firsthand the benefits of VA home loans through her parents' military service, Yvette became a homeowner and landlord at the age of 23, inheriting her father's home purchased with a VA loan. Her commitment to her clients is underscored by her humility, which she considers her secret strength, coupled with her professionalism and negotiation skills. Yvette's generosity extends beyond her professional endeavors; she and her team have contributed nearly $95,000.00 to buyers and sellers through their previous partnership with Homes for Heroes.
