I would like to provide a detailed review of the absolutely amazing experience my family had with Brian Merrick to help sell my our property. He was very proactive, detail oriented, professional and extremely communicative in every detail and aspect of our whole experience. Never have I seen one individual work so diligently and tirelessly as a closer to get everyting handled perfectly. Brian personally came to the house took pictures got the site listed within days and had people to set things up for appointments more quickly than we ever could have imagined. I was stunned at how efficiently and quickly he got all of these aspects rolling seamlessly and coordinated with consummate professionalism. We had more than a dozen offers in the first weekend and we couldn't be more pleased with this experience it was truly and outstandingly amazing. Five stars for Brian Merrick! It is very impressive in this day and age to have someone pick up the phone every single time you call. We were very assured in every aspect with his complete ease and management that kept us comforted and reassured during every stage this transitionary process after my parents passing. He was kind caring and sensitive to every aspects of our needs. I could not imagine a better person anywhere to do a great job of working with real estate and most importantly being a great person. He will be the perfect person to help you with your real estate needs!
Client review for Selling our Malibu House
I cannot say enough positive things on how supportive, loyal, and trustworthy Brian and his team were during our recent home buying experience. He was always available to answer any questions and put us at ease without any pressure through the entire process. Brian does his homework and has vast knowledge of the real estate market. I highly recommend using Brian and his team and look forward to involving them in all our future real estate transactions.
Brian Merrick has lived all his life in Malibu. He is a top level professional and delivers results. One wants to have him in one's corner in both buying and selling your property in Malibu. I have sold my home in 2014 in Pt Dume with Brian and I am still in touch. I consider him a friend.

Brian Merrick was very personable and easy to work with while selling my home in Calabasas, CA in 2014. He is extremely knowledge about selling and purchasing homes along the coastal community of Malibu. His real estate expertise also includes the Malibu Canyon and Calabasas areas. Our home was located in a canyon area within Calabasas. He priced our home reasonably for this location. It was only on the market for 13 days. He was excellent at guiding me during our negotiations with the buyers. Additionally, he has an eye for detail and was able to make several great suggestions about landscaping and preparing the house for sale. He was extremely helpful after the sale during the closing with suggestions for selling and moving the contents out of the house. Since he is a lifelong resident of Malibu he was able to connect me with his local contacts and organizations that were able to use some of the "extra" items, which alleviated a lot of pressure during the packing up and moving out process. This made finalizing the sale quick and efficient, especially since we live out-of-state and this home was being sold for a deceased person's trust.
We chose Brian Merrick from Coldwell Banker Malibu, to sell our family's home of 54 years, because he knows the market, the neighborhood and the importance of being up front and thorough. Brian and his team gave me and my siblings confidence that my mom was in good hands during this major transition. Brian's suggestions were thoughtful when it came to pricing and staging the home. He didn't have us spend thousands of dollars on unnecessary changes. Judy brought in props to add a little flavor to the rooms. The photography, including aerial photos were beautifully done. The marketing made this sale quick. Open houses didn't need to be frequent, as Brian only brought serious buyers to the table, giving us peace of mind that our home was being respected. We highly recommend Brian Merrick and his team to sell and or find you your next home. Thank you again, Brian and Judy for making this such a smooth and painless transition.
