Daniella Hernandez
Salesperson | CalBRE #02046250
Direct: 310-922-4825
E-Mail: dhrealtor34@gmail.com

Daniella brings her passion for LA’s deep architectural history to Crown Mark Real Estate. After growing up on numerous job sites in Washington State where her family business designed & built everything from commercial buildings to luxury single family homes, Daniella moved to Los Angeles to attend USC and later LMU earning a BA in Sociology and a Masters in Counseling.

However, it was living in Los Angeles and learning about its unique architecture that reignited her early interest in real estate. While starting a family, Daniella found time to lead a thoughtful renovation of a mid century post and beam in Pasadena, as well as preserving a work by mid century master John Lautner. Passionate about the many architectural movements represented here in Los Angeles, Daniella felt it was a seamless transition into real estate and subsequently earned her California Real Estate License.

Whether you’re looking to find a mid century gem from Buff & Hensman or a more traditional design from someone like Paul Williams, Daniella’s well rounded understanding of architectural vernacular will steer you in the right direction. Whether you’re in the market for your first home, see the built environment as art or are looking to make your own vision a reality, she is committed to approaching each purchase or sale as if it were her own. This thoughtful approach results in a personal connection with both buyers and sellers that alleviates stress and leads to a more rewarding experience for everyone involved. Daniella lives and works in La Canada with her family where she enjoys hiking and reading at the local parks.
