Rodeo Realty’s Lisa Moriarity and her two sons are covering June’s edition of Inside the Hills. The Calabasas agent is featured on the front cover and throughout the publication, which focuses exclusively on the residents of Hidden Hills.

In the section titled ‘Meet your neighbors,’ the magazine talks about Moriarity and how she has built her twenty-five plus years successfully selling residential real estate with a refreshing straightforward approach.

“With her honesty she has been able to establish the trust with her clients time and again, and has been able to assist them in finding the perfect home for their families,” said Inside the Hills.

The magazine also mentions how Moriarity ‘s career started in real estate—how she represented some of the largest builders in southern California and how she transitioned to representing families seeking to purchase or sell homes throughout the Hidden Hills and the greater Calabasas area.


Moriarity’s two sons, Brandon and Austin, are also featured inside the magazine. Her first son Brandon, 27, has started his successful career in commercial real estate. Her second son Austin, 25, is currently pursuing a career in merchant services.

In a Q&A, Moriarity tells the magazine that developing new relationships through her job is the biggest reward.

“Because we work so closely towards a mutual goal, by the close of escrow I’ve made new friends that I will have for years to come,” said Moriarity.

The real estate agent also answers questions about her involvement in the community, her favorite areas, and the activities she enjoys. She also spoke about her love for animals and how she owns two horses, two goats, four chickens and one cat, which are also featured inside the publication.

“Being able to have these animals was one of the biggest reasons I came to Hidden Hills and has kept me here,” said Moriarity.
