Chris Rogers

Sales Agent

At the age of 21 I landed a job in Real Estate back in the U.K. Young and eager, this was a very exciting time in my career and I still have fond memories of working with my fellow team members in my hometown of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, as well as Oxford, England. During this period I was fortunate enough to obtain a valuable and challenging education in residential property and management development as well as the pleasure of working with a great team, eight of us in all yet responsible for numerous concurrent new home sites and up to 85 listings at a time.

As a result of the team success and our unparalleled leadership role in being a top producing office for several years in a row, I managed to personally average 20 listings and 6 sales per month.

My initial brokerage of choice to partner-up with was an individually owned office located in Marina Del Rey, Innovative Realtors. Here I benefited greatly from the mentorship and training of Steve Aguilar & his staff. In May 2009, I joined the Keller Williams in Marina Del Rey. With the help of a superb team of instructors in a challenging yet nurturing environment, my skills and experience grew & expanded with every transaction.

My goal is to continue to utilize my years of experience in assisting people with buying or selling their home and building their futures all the while making the experience as successful, enjoyable and smooth as possible.

I have added to my Skills and earned my NAR Green®, SRES®, and E-PRO® designations. The market in the areas I serve have gone through a multi-year recovery and are at or above pre-crash prices in most cases and with record low rates and improving macro conditions I feel stronger than ever that real estate ownership will continue to be a wise decision.

December, 2014 I am excited to join Pantanella & Partners, a new brokerage with a very experienced CEO and Broker and expect to grow my business to the next level in 2015.

Janice Ang

Sales Agent

I have over 20 years of real estate experience, representing clients in both commercial and residential estate. Mainly, I’ve dealt with the sale and purchase of shopping centers, stand-alone retail/restaurant buildings, office warehouses, apartment buildings (multi-units), single-family homes, and condominiums. 
I am fluent in both English and Mandarin, having grown up in Singapore until immigrating to the United States in March 1987. Service and sales have always been my forte, and I think my natural ability as a savvy salesperson has guided me into this career.

I grew up with an uncle who was a successful real estate developer and investor who established a successful real estate and finance company in Singapore. Even in my youth, I loved to visit various properties and developments with him. It’s my uncle in particular who inspired me to pursue real estate in my adult life. 
In my twenties, I took to the skies as a flight attendant with Singapore Airlines, one of the world’s most highly-regarded airline carriers. My time with Singapore Airlines was fundamental in teaching me about the importance of great service and customer satisfaction, not to mention the ability to meet people from a diverse number of countries and cultures and gain a more worldly perspective as a young person.

West Los Angeles has been my home since 1987. I specialize in properties in West LA and love living there as well. It’s really great to be so close to the beautiful Pacific Ocean and truly experience the best weather I’ve encountered in the United States. I enjoy continuing to build my real estate business on the Westside, with years of real estate education, training, and sales seminars under my belt. But by far, I get the greatest satisfaction from closing transactions and satisfying my clients.

Maria Demme


With over a decade of experience working with some of the top producing teams on the westside, Maria decided to take her business to the next level by joining Pantanella & Partners where she can make an even bigger difference for her clients. Maria wanted to have more control of how her business was run and create an atmosphere that reflected what was happening day to day in her neighborhood.

Maria has always surrounded herself with treasures from the past. Her attitude also reflects her vintage flair. Hard working, caring about people, being accessible, being loyal, being dependable; good values in a modern world.

Before Maria started in Real Estate, she was a freelance wardrobe stylist. This field provided her with the experience and education to be a team player, working toward a common goal. She perfected her skills at trouble shooting, thinking on her feet, good communication, and taking action.

Mission Statement

I created ideal Properties to be a company that would embody the values I have in my own life. I have always loved everything vintage from clothes to furniture to values. I want my company to have “classic” values. A flashback to when people mattered, relationships mattered, integrity mattered. A time when doctors made house calls, and people could trust someone’s word, when neighbors watched out for each other. Customer care is my top priority. My goal is to make your real estate transaction a pleasant experience, one that you can sit back and trust that I will do my job—for YOU!

I am aggressive for my clients not with my clients.
