Alana Mesica: Broker, The Agency

My NativeAdVantage:


Alana's fascination with architecture and interiors began at a young age, but it is her comprehensive education in the real estate industry, that has turned her passions into a promising profession. Alana attended Milken Community High School, followed by Loyola Marymount University where she graduated with honors and obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Communication.

Experiencing such polar environments, both culturally and intellectually, while acquiring teachings from two religious educational facilities, Alana has a unique perspective on Los Angeles. Embracing the city’s innate diversity and understanding the intricacies of human interaction, she has made a network of friends and associates that extends across a wide range of social spheres. She is well-versed on the hidden treasures of the city, while maintaining a vast property knowledge that spans from the far corners of the Valley to the outskirts of Downtown. More importantly, Alana is constantly on the hunt for more – from her ever-expanding network of influential individuals to examining the latest market trends – she is dedicated to improving her craft.

What do you do best?

I like to think I make people feel at ease. This is an important factor when dealing with people in residential real estate since buying a home is one of the most important decisions people make, and an emotional one! Making my clients feel at ease, communicating effectively, and connecting with them beyond surface level gives them the confidence that I have their best interest in mind.

What makes you the best?

I always try to think of ways to separate myself from the rest, how can I be different or unique and what can I bring to the table that most people can’t? There may be many others like me, but at the end of the day no one will ever be me but ME!

Biggest success?

I suppose it would be representing my buyer on my first deal ever. Huge stepping stone, opened many doors, and also happened to be a childhood friend of mine.

What are your aspirations?

Personal: To grow each and every year, always becoming a better version of myself. Having nothing change from one year to the next is one of my biggest fears. I also want to work on being more social, I’m a big homebody and need to get out more!

Business: To be amongst the top producing agents in the US, and continue working alongside an amazing team.

Most challenging moment?

Overcoming constant rejection starting out in the business, and sticking with it!

Favorite Motto:

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”

Favorite People:

My boyfriend, my sister, and does my dog count? Hehe.

Favorite Places:

Alfred Coffee, Miami and New York.

Favorite Products:

Coconut Oil. And my iphone, naturally.
