As a fellow multi-generation Malibu local, I have made several transactions with Brian - both as a buyer and as a seller. Not only is his knowledge of the Malibu area second to none, but his promptness and 24/7 work schedule is top-notch; which is essential during a real estate transaction.

Brian is respected in the surf line-up just as he is in the real estate world; something that is unique to Malibu and invaluable when making a deal.
