Tami Halton Pardee’s vision: homes for all
los angeles times | September 14, 2018
“There’s a lot of excess,” Pardee said of Los Angeles’ blistering real estate market, which parallels a crushing affordable-housing crisis. “We’re all making a lot of money on real estate. We need to do more.”
For Pardee, “more” means working in the trenches. In 2017, she founded the nonprofit foundation Life Change Warriors, a six-week program that helps homeless and disadvantaged participants map out brighter, more stable futures. Forty participants have graduated from four sessions.

In perhaps the best example of a hands-on boss, Pardee provides coaching to her own employees at the brokerage, people she refers to as “life changers.”
“I coach in a more spiritual way,” she explained. “I teach them to truly get into themselves and be happy with themselves, because if they’re happy and connected to themselves, that’s going to come across to the client, and then the client is going to want to be with them and work with them.”

This minivan-driving mom of four uses this same work ethic and drive to dominate L.A.’s residential real estate market today.

Another thing Pardee makes time for is her Life-Changer Program, which offers active participation and significant financial contributions to local charities, including Teen Project, Harvest Home, Homeless Task Force, Venice Community Housing Corporation, and more.
“This is something I was born to do,” she says. Her personal mission statement is “to be a down-to-earth, life-change warrior who inspires hope, courage and purpose by motivating those I touch to show up and start on the life they love.” So she carried that through to a philanthropic level. “I live in Venice, California, where there is a lot of homelessness. I gave away a lot of money to help solve the problem, but didn’t feel like I was changing lives,” she says.
