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.
