Staysi Rizzo

Agent, Speranta Group

DRE# 01847934

A Pasadena native, realtor Staysi Rizzo began her career in real estate in 2008 when she originally earned her real estate license. She put her real estate career on hold to start a family, during which time she founded her own online eco-friendly “mom and baby” boutique. Utilizing her exceptional social media abilities and marketing sensibilities, her online enterprise gained success, allowing her to be a stay-at-home mom during her children’s important and formative years. With her children now in school, Staysi is excited to return to her original and true passion – real estate. Staysi loves dealing with clients on a close and personal level. Her friendly and accommodating nature fuels her passion for client relations, and her extensive knowledge of the local market – challenges and complexities – gives both sellers and buyers confidence in her abilities. She incorporates her values of honesty, sincerity, integrity and passion into her work.
