LA’s Most Influential Women
& How They Are Making Their Mark
Los Angeles Confidential
April 17, 2017
The notion that women rock, that they make the world go round, that they make businesses thrive, that they make families whole, and that they generally make anything they put their minds to and anything they darn well please is, to put it succinctly, proven science. Remove women from the societal equation and you would probably need a Hazmat suit to clean up what was left.
Remove our “Women of Influence” from the Los Angeles business, social and philanthropic landscape and you have a distaff Calexit too terrifying to ponder. These inspiring and admired boundary breakers are accomplished and just plain awesome in every way. They love L.A. and L.A. loves them back. Having them grace our pages is both a privilege and an honor. Here’s to you, and to all of your countless contributions!
TAMI HALTON PARDEE, OWNER/PRINCIPAL BROKER HALTON PARDEE + PARTNERS
Tami has ascended to the penthouse of her profession despite being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She is the No. 1 real estate agent in Los Angeles and her company is the No. 1 brokerage on the Westside, responsible for $2 billion in properties since starting in 2005. She has received kudos galore for her professional and charitable work, including Good Housekeeping’s “2016 Awesome Women Award” and being named Philanthropist of the Year in 2016 by the Los Angeles Business Journal.
What would you most like to be remembered for?
For being a down-to-earth LIFE CHANGER who inspires hope, courage and purpose by motivating those I touch!
What is your guilty pleasure?
Definitely listening to country music—I love Garth Brooks.
What’s on your bucket list?
There are so many: heli-skiing in Iceland, rafting the Colorado River at the Grand Canyon, summiting Mt. Hood, and to go on an African safari and volunteer in Africa. Those are just a few at the top of my list!
What would your super hero power be?
I would want to be able to read peoples’ hearts and minds. I would want to do this so I could help them!
If you had a time machine, where would you go?
Honestly, I would go back to the 1970’s so I could disco-dance my life away!
One item/service you could never live without:
DryBar—I love a good blow out! One item would definitely be a tape measurer.
