Our South Bay Team Works for You

South Bay Confidential brings together a team of professionals working for you: Our clients.

We're growing to serve people like you who are looking to buy homes in the South Bay, or planning to sell. Here are just some of the members of our team currently:

dave-fratello-realtorDave Fratello

Dave is a longtime Manhattan Beach resident with a special expertise for his neighborhood. For a recent 2-year period, Dave represented more buyers in Manhattan Beach than any other agent. 

As a licensed real estate broker, Dave represents sellers and buyers in markets all around the South Bay, with recent sales in Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach and the Palos Verdes area in addition to his sales in the Manhattan Beach area. Dave has produced the popular Manhattan Beach Confidential blog and website since 2007.

Dave's background prior to real estate was in PR and marketing, where he built several small, high-impact communications shops to help clients. That experience translates well to marketing for real estate and managing the team here at South Bay Confidential.

Dave brings high standards to every aspect of his work for clients, including a commitment to cutting-edge online marketing. See what his recent clients have had to say. Dave is a broker associate with Confidential Realty (BRE# 01880469).

Tasha Murrell

Tasha Murrell is our specialist for Redondo Beach, where she lives now, plus surrounding communities of Torrance, Lawndale, Hawthorne and other parts of the region.

Tahsa knows that most real estate agents don't focus on working with buyers. They find buyers to be confusing to work with, and think it takes too much time. But Tasha truly likes the challenge of joining home buyers on a journey to find the right home.

When you're negotiating with a seller, on price, terms and possible repairs, you need an advocate who's watching out for your interests: A buyer's agent like Tasha.

Tasha is affiliated with Keller Williams Pacific Estates (BRE# 01736501).

Michelle Tumanjan

Michelle Tumanjan is our Palos Verdes area expert. She was born and raised in the South Bay. She has over a decade of experience working in her family’s real estate development and construction business.

Michelle holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Cal State Long Beach. Over the course of her working life, she has been directly involved in the business of building homes from Palos Verdes to Long Beach and everywhere in between, giving her a unique perspective on property and construction that translates to value-added for her clientele.

As passionate about the deal as she is about satisfying her client’s property needs, she is hardworking and loves to negotiate. She has a gift for problem-solving and has a true love and deep knowledge of real estate in the South Bay. Michelle is affiliated with RE/MAX Estate Properties in the South Bay. (BRE# 01710741)

Jean Frank

Jean is a solid, professional realtor who exemplifies the Confidential Realty team's commitment to high-quality, ethical service to our clients. We all aim to manage communications and transactions with a high level of attention to detail, and Jean keeps it all working.

With a background in professional administration, it's no wonder Jean is able to balance the needs and wants of many separate parties and keep everyone focused on reaching the right outcome.

Jean represents buyers and sellers as an agent, and also serves as a co-agent with many of Confidential Realty's clients, along with Dave Fratello or others. Jean's role ensures that all clients have immediate access to someone with Confidential whenever they need something.

Jim Orland

Jim grew up in Manhattan Beach in a family dedicated to local real estate. His father, also Jim, is a well-known, local structural engineer.

The younger Jim is a lawyer with a principal practice in the field of real estate, including transaction issues and construction-related matters.

Jim is the broker for Confidential Realty. He supervises transactions and offers advice whenever issues arise for our clients. Having specialized counsel at the ready is a unique asset we can bring to the table.
