Ratings & Reviews

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 negoitations 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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.025M in Calabasas, CA.

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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Malibu, CA.

Brian represented me on my purchase in 2004 and has represented me in leasing my home twice. In addition to being a wonderful human, he's skilled at the business, knows the town of Malibu like the back of his hand, and is completely trustworthy and honest -- grew up as the son of a judge and won't ever cut corners on ethics let alone the law.   More Less
