View Full Bio

Monica Ball has been a residential real estate agent and member of the California Association of Realtors® and the San Diego Association of Realtors® since 2005, winning Rookie of the Year that year for Prudential California’s San Diego Region. Ms. Ball is currently with Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty, though her license has been on referral status since 2015 so she can focus on answers for the west coast homeless crisis and housing shortage. Promoting innovative housing typologies and streamlining buildability top her current list of priorities.

In 2017, Ms. Ball participated as a member of Urban Land Institute (ULI) with American Institute of Architects (AIA) on the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) “Housing the Next One Million” project. This led to her engagement with the City of San Diego Smart Growth & Land Use Committee and the federally designated Promise Zone. A radical, regional multi-family build-out on property owned by the local faith community is scheduled to begin the fall of 2018, in part due to Ms. Ball’s efforts.
Ms. Ball has worked with the San Diego homeless population since joining the Urban People Living In Faith & Trust (UPLIFT) Board in 2002. She was selected to be a member of the 25 Cities Design Team for the HUD/VA national homeless veterans housing effort in 2014, and is a current member of the Regional Task Force on the Homeless (RTFH) Coordinated Entry System (CES) Advisory Board. Ms. Ball has also served as the Social Issues Chairperson for the Downtown Community Planning Council (DCPC) since 2011, has been a Downtown Kiwanis Club & Foundation Board Member since 2004, and currently serves on the Downtown San Diego Partnership Policy Advisory Committee.
Prior to real estate, Ms. Ball worked for Nordstrom in a management capacity in multiple San Diego stores in the 1980’s, and worked as an Account Manager for Clear Channel Broadcast (now iHeart Media) in the 1990’s.

After an extended hiatus from academics, Ms. Ball will earn her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from Arizona State University Lake Havasu, a campus she helped to establish and fund. Ms. Ball also attended Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon and California State University, Long Beach.
