Kalli Rivers Altieri lives by a simple philosophy, “When you are passionate about what you do, you feel a positive energy and you spread it around. Making the deal is great, but making people happy is the best reward you can ask for.”
In the competitive arena of real estate, Kalli stands out as someone who brings dedication, heart and soul to everything she does. Raised in Aspen, Colorado, Kalli always had an entrepreneurial spirit, working her way through college, starting several small businesses and being a successful working commercial actress/model for over 25 years. She graduated with a B.A. in Communications Studies and minors in PR and Advertising from the University of Texas in Austin. When Kalli moved to Los Angeles over 28 years ago, she fell in love with Southern California and the possibilities of having skiing, the mountains, the canyons, the beach and the energy of a big city all within reach.
The move to real estate was the next natural step for Kalli after successfully completing a residential development project with her husband (and two children) after they purchased and converted a condemned teardown into paradise found. Out of that grew Ocelli Design, her company with her husband, Joe, a licensed general contractor, which services all types of clients in all areas of development, design and construction. Among other publications, they have been featured in Sunset Magazine and on the Venice Garden Tour.
Kalli truly understands that while real estate is a business, a house is more than just a house - it is a home. Whether working with buyers or sellers, she has managed to strike the perfect balance between sensitivity to her clients’ needs and commitment to impressive results. She takes time to guide, educate and communicate openly with her clients throughout the entire process, to put their minds at ease and inspire decisions that are right for them. Kalli is always one to think outside the box to find creative solutions and knows how to troubleshoot obstacles with competence and finesse.
Outside of her work in real estate, Kalli enjoys sunrise hikes with her Golden Retriever, beach days, camping, skiing, early morning flower mart runs, live music, movies and adventures with her family and friends.
