The world of luxury real estate has witnessed an unprecedented surge in demand and value. Some opulent properties fetching millions of dollars from eager buyers. In this high-stakes arena, the key to success lies in finding the right client who is willing to invest substantially. One name stands out as a beacon of success – Brendan Brown. With a penchant for spotting hidden gems, Brendan has cemented his position as a trailblazer in the industry.
Brendan Brown is a luxury real estate agent who started his career in real estate at the age of 18. He has been front and center on both the West and East coast ever since. Brendan was born and raised in Newport Beach, CA, where he started his career renovating and designing investment properties and opened his own brokerage at 23.
Over the years, Brendan’s brokerage thrived, and he expanded his business ventures across Southern California and the East Coast. Embracing opportunities both domestically and abroad, Brendan’s dynamic presence became evident on both coasts and international markets.
NEW YORK CITY
In 2018, Brendan embarked on a new chapter, relocating to the bustling heart of New York City. He signed with renowned firms Douglas Elliman and Knight Frank. There he honed his skills and mastering the intricacies of the luxury real estate game. While New York City sharpened his expertise, Brendan felt a magnetic pull back to the West Coast. In 2021, he returned to California. Brendan chose to partner with one of the world’s top brokerage firms, Westside Estate Agency. This further allowed Brendan to expand his reach to prestigious locales such as Los Angeles, Malibu, and Miami.
Brendan Brown’s approach to luxury real estate goes beyond the ordinary. For him, it’s about creating an experience that epitomizes the essence of high-end living. “it’s even the small things,” He explains. “Do you carry yourself the way that an agent dealing in $40 million dollar homes should? Do you know the materials that are often used? The builders? A standard real agent can still be great, but it’s the things you don’t necessarily think of that will be the differentiators.” From immaculate marketing to an impeccable social media presence; Brendan ensures every aspect of his business aligns with the luxury standard he represents.
With a focus on celebrity clientele, Brendan’s dedication to providing a seamless and luxurious experience is unparalleled. “That’s very important to me. From how my marketing looks, social media, even stationary; there’s no aspect of my business that doesn’t fall in line with that.” Whether scouring the market for the perfect property or leveraging his extensive network for exclusive off-market opportunities, Brendan leaves no stone unturned to meet the unique needs of his clients.
In his approach to his clients Brendan makes clear, “I am not a transactional agent. I’m not looking at you as dollar signs and trying to get you to close on something you don’t love. I value and cultivate my relationships with my clients, even if it means at certain times I don’t get paid”.
YOU CAN’T JUST LOOK AT IT AS A TRANSACTION
“It was the perfect house, and I wouldn’t have steered them towards a different house. That’s not me taking care of my clients. The month they moved to CA, we started looking for properties for them to buy. This dedication is evident in his willingness to prioritize his clients’ satisfaction over short-term gains. After finding out a perfect property he showed his newly relocated clients would not work with agents, Brendan still encouraged them to rent that house. Brown says “had I pushed them out of renting that property, they wouldn’t still be my clients.”
