Exceptional service, Gwen Banta's driving force, is a value she learned early in her business career as owner of a speakers' bureau for corporate executives. When a client gave a seminar on property acquisition, Gwen became hooked on real estate and the art of the deal. After entering the business as an investor, Gwen became a licensed real estate consultant in 2002.

In January 2009, Gwen joined Sotheby's International Realty, where she is now a top producer at the company's renowned Sunset Strip brokerage. She has received numerous awards for outstanding performance including: Top Producer, Executive Club, 100% Club Award, "Trulia Top Agent 2014" and "LA Top Rated Agent 2015". Her business includes luxury sales and estates as well as income properties, serving clients in West Hollywood, Hollywood Hills, Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Studio City and the beach cities.

Gwen is a skilled negotiator with a global reach in marketing. One aspect of her thriving business is her recently established service network for Asia - East-West Property Specialists - which offers real estate services that include property purchase, helicopter service, interpreters, limousine service and relocation assistance. Dubbed "L.A.'s Sherlock of Homes" by her loyal clients, Gwen is known for her intelligence, ethics and wild sense of humor. She is often seen on such television shows as "Flip That House," " Million Dollar Rooms," "Extreme Homes" and "Behind the Gates”.

Gwen is also a featured blogger for numerous professional websites and has hundreds of loyal followers. An award-winning actress and author, Gwen holds B.A. and M.S. degrees, as well as a language certificate from the Defense Language Institute. Her debut novel, "The Fly Strip," will be released by Waldorf Publishing in September 2016. Gwen's motto: "The best in luxury service, from downtown to Dubai!"
